Hi there. Just downloaded the plugins from SourceForge which I found in the development section but it looks like it doesn't work. Receiver error: The plugin "C:\Documents and Settings\\My Documents\PortableApps\GeanyPortable\App\Geany\lib\addons.dll" is not binary compatible with this release of Geany - please recompile it.

I've updated the plugins package to the current Geany 1.23 plugins set. They should be working for you now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
