Release Notes:
One of new sweetest capacities in Notepad++ v5.4 is google chrome tab drag and drop feature : it allows user to drag out a tab to move/open the current document in a new instance. It's useful if you have 2 or more displays.Any document can be draged in/out among different instances.

While new release is enhanced for the rich developpers who can afford several monitors, the poor ones who have only one display with the pre-historic video card are not forgotten : The structure of menu is compacted in order to access to every single menu item in any resolution (even under 640 x 480).

Theme selector (Menu "Settings->Style Configurator...") is another sweet feature in this release. It allows users to switch among different themes on the fly and get the visual effect immediately. 10 themes are included in both ANSI/Unicode releases so you can play around directly.
I did "Hello Kitty" theme and I'm quite satisfied with it - it's easy to fill with different pink colours to get this silly style. On the other hand, I tried to make a theme named "Bad Taste" but in vain. Obviously my taste is not so bad :) . So for those who have talent to make such theme, please send it to me (, I will include it in the future release if it is ugly enough. It'll be even better to have several ugly themes so that "Bad Taste" theme competition will take place.

"Mark all" extension is another handy feature. By making these commands accessible via the context menu, user is able to mark upto 5 different colours for any occurence. It's convinient when you work on a log file.

Too many goodies in this release, I let you discover them yourself.
