Notepad++ has been updated with improvements including a fixed memory leak and better handling of UTF-8.
Notepad++ is a more fully featured text editor than Microsoft's built-in Windows text editor, Notepad. Notepad++ is free to use, and was originally hosted on SourceForge.Net. It supports tabbed editing, meaning developers can work with multiple open files. It supports syntax highlighting and syntax folding for over 50 programming, scripting, and markup languages, including HTML.
The first change of note in the new release is the option of having exclude folders when you're carrying out a Find in Files operation.
The new release also has a fix to correctly detect UTF-8, which in the previous release was detected wrongly as being in the Thai TIS-620, with the character typed as UTF-8 being garbled when the file is saved and re-opened.
The new release has added an auto save for the current loaded session when you exit Notepad++, and a fix for the caret left-right inverse moving in RTL mode.
The developers say there's also a comprehensive fix for dockable panels losing their background color when switching back from sleep mode, and the known memory leak when toggling between Dark/Lite mode has also been fixed.
The name field in the rename tab is now longer, up from 20 to 63 characters, and the Document List icons are now correct in appearance after switching to dark mode or changing to alternative icons.
Other improvements include the updating of regexp from v1.76 to v1.78, and the application of the “crontab” file to the syntax highlighting of bash.
Notepad++ 8.2 is available now.
