Old topic update: AkelPad v4.9.8 released 2016-07-18 (changelog at akelpad.sourceforge.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2114).

Couldn't find a full changelog online, so I'm pointing to the most complete non-official one (back to v3.3.0):

Even though the last official update was in 2016, there have been trickling updates as late as September 2020:

Hopefully we'll see a new official release sometime soon. According to the dev log, biggest changes include supporting 64-bit and native portable mode!
is it stealth? ;)

Thanks for the news, freakzoid.

I was once an AkelPad user and may quickly return, should those changes materialize. I seem to recall AkelPad being coded straight in assembly, but those updates are long overdue.

I found a test version on the AkelPad forums with the version number 4.9.9 dev, last updated on July 2019. At least this is better than nothing!
