Latest Version

v3.00 (build 323, patched to 336) available from the Download Page or the EditPlus anonymous FTP.
Released on February, 11 2008

Version notes (unofficial)

  • EditPlus v3 only works on Windows 2000, XP, and Vista, and loses compatibility with Windows 95, 98, and ME. If you have an old Windows system you can't upgrade to EditPlus 3.
  • EditPlus 3 saves files differently than EditPlus 2: now it opens the file and overwrites it, which means saved files are no longer moved at the end of the file list in the folder by Windows.
  • For beta testers: EditPlus v3.00 released on 2008-02-11 is different from EditPlus 3.00 beta build 323 (2008-02-06) ("Release Candidate 7"): although there are no new features or bug fixes, it no longer says "beta" in the About message box.


For installation on computers that do not have EditPlus version 2 installed:

1. Run the executable installer, selecting the directories in which INI (settings) and syntax (STX) files should be installed. (Auto-complete (ACP) and cliptext (CTX) files will go in the same directory as syntax files.)

For Installation on computers that have EditPlus version 2 installed:

1. Do not uninstall version 2. Versions 2 and 3 can co-exist on the same computer.

2. Install version 3 as described above.

3. Copy any non-standard syntax, auto-complete, and cliptext files from the version 2 installation to the location chosen for version 3.

4. Optionally, uninstall version 2 after confirming that version 3 works as desired.
