Notepad++ 3.8 Available - A Great Notepad Replacement

Notepad can be a great tool for those people looking for simplicity and no formatting, but wouldn’t it be nice if you could get a few more features? Notepad++ is based upon the ease-of-use of the Windows Notepad but has an extensive feature set. The most useful feature that it has for me is the syntax highlighting for many types of programming languages:
Supported languages : C, C++, Java, C#, XML, HTML, PHP, Javascript, RC resource file, makefile, ASCII art file, doxygen, ini file, batch file, ASP, VB/VBS source files, SQL, Objective-C, CSS, Pascal, Perl, Python, Lua, TCL, Assembler, Ruby, Lisp, Scheme, Properties, Diff, Smalltalk, Postscript and VHDL.

That is a pretty exhaustive list! You can also create some macros or view multiple documents at the same time with the use of the split-screen feature (pictured above). Don’t worry about cluttering up your taskbar either because Notepad++ has built-in tabs so that opening multiple files isn’t such a pain. The list of features goes on and on but you can check out more screenshots or just head on over to download Notepad++. The new version that was just released is Notepad++ 3.8 and if you would like there is a list of bug fixes and new features available for your viewing pleasure.
