For a long time I was looking for a stable fork of Numpad++ that could live in parallel with the vanilla version of NPP. What for? To be able to run two instances of my favorite editor 🙂 Unfortunately, using the portable version along with the installed one does not allow saving open projects.
Searched, searched.. and found! Please meet NotePad Next! The cross-platform implementation of npp .. is also suitable for those who were looking for an analogue of Notepad ++ on Linux 🙂
