One of the best free advanced text editors, Notepad++, has undergone a slew of changes and version 5.4 is now available. If you’re unfamiliar with the program, it is an editor which supports an enormous spectrum of languages including C, C++, C#, Java, Javascript, XML, HTML, PHP, SQL, Objective-C, CSS, Pascal, Perl, Python, Lua, RC resource, Makefile, ASCII art, Doxygen, INI, batch, ASP and VB/VBS source files. It also made our list of top applications to install on a fresh operating system.


Updated features include an added theme selector to switch styles.xml on the fly, a Google Chrome drag and drop feature, the ability to mark any occurrence with 5 separate colors, column selection, UTF16 detection without BOM, dynamically scaled fine numbers margin and quite a few other updates. Along with the impressive set of new functions, the program has seen several bug fixes and other tweaks. You can download Notepad++ 5.4 (2.57MB) here at TechSpot.
