(from author of CudaText) I'm making CudaText instead of SynWrite for these reasons:
1) I made editor part from scratch, only added to it EControl parser from 3rd party, but editor core is totally new, from scratch. I can optimize or change it like i want. It is cool. E.g. in 2017 summer I made huge optimizations for huge log files (300Mb+) and editor is fast here. I can change what i want in the core. In Synwrite I cannot do it: core is not mine, only my small tweaks. It was not good, not fast, not changable. 2) New app is Win32/Linux/macOS, CudaText is cross platform. Cool too. It can replace Sublime for some users. Not only Win32 users.

Version 10.10.4 is not stealth - existing "editbone.ini" and "editbone.out" files in the application folder are moved to AppData/EditBone on first start.

smaragdus on 2016-07-25 21:56

EditBone is no longer portable- see http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=82292#p82292
I down-voted EditBone.

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?

I have never seen a text editor as ugly as this one, compared to BowPad, even DocPad (http://www.gammadyne.com/docpad.htm) is a beauty.

I Just hope this excellent editor won't go from "complete" to "bloated" and from lots of MB to fews of GB in size :)

joby_toss on 2015-11-15 07:56

I used UPX to bring the size down to about 70MB, but I haven't fully tested the functionality afterwards...

zorro on 2016-09-27 20:27

Just for completion: not stealth, leaves a folder "CEF" in AppData/Local/ behind - has something to do with dictionaries (disabling the auto correction does not help)
