My favorite editor for multi-tabbed editing. Feature-rich.

Not stealth anymore, creates 'AppData/Local/Notepad++' folder.

Special on 2017-08-30 23:17

So in the 7.5.1 changelog it says it fixed the above 'AppData/Local/Notepad++' folder bug, but I'm still getting them, can anyone else confirm?

webfork on 2017-10-12 21:03

I've been a huge FileZilla fan since it came out back in 2001, but got a chance to test it today and WinSCP is amazing. I was able to resolve an issue with WebDAV via that program that no other program seemed capable of.

AndTheWolf - It's fixed. Some editors keep pointing to static URLs instead of the download page for some reason. So, when it's updated, the download winds up wrong.

__philippe on 2018-03-31 15:31

Belatedly noticed FocusWriter's hefty 138MB footprint,
a tad rich for an alleged "minimalistic" word processor...;-)

webfork on 2018-04-11 22:29

philippe: true. I'll add a note that the minimalism refers to the interface.

I like it allot, it is just what I have been looking for. The interface is like MS Management Studio but better. My experience with support was great, I sent in a question via e-mail and received an answer in under 15 minutes. I HIGHLY recommend it especially to anyone who likes working with Management Studio.

I used BitComet as the first torrent client back in the ol days.
Then uTorrent arrived, and I stuck with it for the low resource usage.

The download links for BitComet version 1.50 - "404 Not Found" (both for the archive and the installer).

Midas on 2018-05-17 14:09

Confirmed just now: https://www.bitcomet.com/en/archive/ shows links for both packages but all you get is an error for v1.50. Alternative download locations pointed to by the homepage don't work either.

Just realized new version supports dsd in wavpack: "Support for high-resolution DSD audio files compressed with WavPack, i.e. compressed DSF/DFF in .wv files. Note that while DSD-in-WV saves quite a bit of space (in our tests 35-50%) it also takes a bit longer to decode (e.g. to prepare the waveform.)"

@two who are you to call @Realist a troll ? WTF seems a person that flames is a troll, IMHO he was just giving his take on the software review, which I happen to agree with, so am I also a "TROLL"? Sound=music is a very subjective matter which I have heard being discussed since the "4 track" days, as the saying goes one mans junk is another mans gold... at least that's the saying. Try and lighten up on the name calling as it serves no useful purpose here.

The Brazilian Portuguese is not the real language, because Files in Brazilian are not "ficheiros". They are called "Arquivos". =( I have to change to English, because Portuguese of Portugal is not my preference.
