A decent editor when you consider what you are paying for it. It has most of the functions the average user will need for quick & dirty editing work.
For more features consider some of the shareware/commercial offerings.

You can't get much better for free.

It is good to see a 64-bit version of this editor come out without having to build my own (messy). Max file size has always been a hard NP++ limitation. File size is really the only beef I have had with this editor. Now it is perfect for a free editor.

The release 6.8.9 has been removed from the website because it failed the regression test.

This program is very good but it can't handle extremely large files.

better than notepad or wordpad

Gave it it a 5 stars rating just because of the version number and the date it's out as in Friday the 13th. :-P Also did a screen capture!

2 stars less for not fixing "stylerTheme" path in "config" file to be portable even though I told the author about it ages ago.
