    Notepad++ (freeware text editor)

    Notepad++ 5.8

    "Notepad++ is a free (as in "free speech" and also as in "free beer") source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License.

    Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size. By optimizing as many routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad++ is trying to reduce the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption, resulting in a greener environment

    Notepad++ v5.8.5



    Due to some complains about new icon, one option to switch back to the old one is available in the installer.

    ChangeIcon.exe and old icon will be available ASAP for those who use the zip package and desire his/her old icon back.

    In this version several bugs are fixed, especially regarding Windows 7 :

    1. tab settings saving problem and switching the languages on the fly bug (UAC issue).
    2. files closing problems in x64 file system (in the session and in the recent file history list).
