Maintenance release: Notepad! v1.0.14.54

We have just released a maintenance update for our Notepad! This new version fixes a couple small glitches that were reported by some of our users:

  • if already running, the application is not correctly restored and brought to front when an associated file type is double-clicked
  • the “.txt” file extension is now correctly appended to the file name when no extension is specified by the user during a “save” or “save as” operation

As usual you can download the most recent version from our web site. Thank you!
