Notepad2 4.0.22-beta1 | Notepad2 3.1.21 Custom

Why Notepad2?
Most editors are either fully-featured but slow or fast but useless. Notepad2 has a small footprint and is very fast, even when used on a very old machine; the only other text editor that I have used that starts up as fast as Notepad2 is Windows Notepad. Yet, despite its speed, Notepad2 has a lot of useful features, such as auto-indent, brace matching, syntax highlighting, and code folding (with the appropriate patch; see below). Most importantly, its startup speed is comparable to that of Windows Notepad, which makes Notepad2 an ideal Notepad replacement.

2009-06-22 (
* Base Notepad2 version: 3.1.21
* Base Scintilla version: CVS_20090622
- Updated Notepad2 to 3.1.21
- Updated Scintilla to CVS_20090622
- These patches have been incorporated upstream and have thus been retired:
- np2-3.1.21-ini_create_path.patch
- np2-3.1.21-disable_apache_conf.patch
- Improved the code folding patch
- Added a new command (accessible via menu, toolbar, or keyboard shortcut)
to toggle all fold points
- When searching text, finding a result within a folded section will now
cause that section to unfold
- When code folding is disabled, all fold points will unfold
- For users who use Notepad2 as a "soft" Notepad replacement (the default if
my installer is used), the Notepad2 jump list in Windows 7 will now
populate correctly
- Changed the icon to make Notepad2 more distinguishable from Notepad; the
new icon is a mirror image of the NT6.x Notepad icon, so that on NT5.x,
users can distinguish the two through the style, and on NT6.x, users can
distinguish the two through the directional orientation of the icon
- The comment character used for toggling comments in Apache conf files has
been changed from ";" to "#"
- Pressing Ctrl+F while the Find dialog is open or Ctrl+H while the Replace
dialog is open will now set the focus to the find/replace text box
