I miss small things like URL highlighting and being able to use ESC instead of Alt-F4, does anyone know how willing the author is to implement new features?

There has been no update for at least a year.  If you go to his site, he has a list of things he's considering and things he isn't ever going to consider.  I only use it as a notepad replacement.  In this, it is perfect: small, fast, with a few extra features.  Anything more robust requires a full fledged editor.  I use ScitTe for AutoIt and Keynote for writing... Notepad2 is great (though I wouldn't mind an update!)

http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net - for the win :)

Base on scintilla (like scite), but IMHO better than scite.

It's really great indeed, under active development, and (some, anyway :P) feature requests tend to be implemented. If you're a programmer, shouldn't be hard to write stuff for it yourself, since it's based on scintilla. I've written a couple of plugins I use, which are quite helpful :)

That is already possible! Settings > Esc key functions.

Note that Notepad2, just as Scite and Notepad++ also uses Scintilla.

What a timely topic.  I was googling around last nite to see references to Notepad2 and found out a couple of people have updated Notepad2 from the source code, although the official package has not been updated in awhile.  Updates were mainly related to support for Ruby.

Site 1: http://mel.melaxis.com/devblog/2005/09/03/improved-ruby-syntax-highlighting-for-notepad2/

Site 2: http://wesnerm.blogs.com/net_undocumented/2005/07/notepad2_with_r.html

I've been using Notepad2 for a few years and recently Notepad++ (looks like v 3.5 to be released in a few days) and like them both.
