A new version of Notepad++ Portable has been released. It's the handy Notepad++ text editor packaged as a portable app so you can do your development on the go. It has all the same great features of Notepad++ including support for multiple languages and an extensive plugin system, but there's nothing to install. It's packaged in Format so it can easily integrate with the Platform. And it's open source and completely free.

Update automatically or install from the portable app store in the Platform.

Had an issue with the upload. Turns out the problem was between the keyboard and the chair. Should be working now. Apologies for the inconvenience.

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

Hi John, working late? Indeed, the download works again!
Thanks for the fast response!!!
