Notepad++ release Note :What is Notepad++?******************Notepad++ is a generic source editor (it tries to be anyway) and Notepadreplacement written in C++ with the win32 API. The aim of Notepad++ is to offer aslim and efficient binary with a totally customizable GUI. This project is underthe GPL Licence (http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html).Why another source editor?**************************I worked for a big smart card company as an engineer developer. On 2003, I tookcharge of looking for an alternative solution for an internal tool coded in Java.The internal tool needed an edit component, and I discovered Scintilla (whichallows me to develop in C++) on the Internet. I began my conception anddevelopment on this project.In the mean time, the company where I worked began to use a new developmentenvironment, and a property language as well, to re-develop all internal tools.All the developers were forced to use this unstable and uncomfortable IDE and theincoherent property language. This project was unfortunately abandoned (or on thecontrary?).As a C++/Java developer, I decided to continue the project in my spare time. Theprototype of project was already done, I removed the components which depend onthe specification of the abandoned project - It made a generic code editor. Then Imade it available on sourceforge : that's the beginning of Notepad++.Time moves on, and I continue to improve Notepad++. Two things make me continuethis project : my need to work on a coherent project by using my beloved languageC++ and the encouragement from Notepad++ users. So you asked me "Why anothersource editor", the answer that I can give you is : "Why not? Since I enjoy myselfdoing it."How to install :****************From the installer :Just follow the install wizard.From the zip :just unzip all the files into a directory you want then launch it.Project web sites :*******************Notepad++ official site :http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/Here you can find all the informations about Notepad++, such asFAQ/tutorial, plugins/extension download, news, shops, etc...Notepad++ project site :http://sourceforge.net/projects/notepad-plus/
