    Hi, Don Ho, Developers, Translators and Users,

    Did you ever notice that our loved editor, Notepad++ is 10 years old, on the 25th November 2013 !!! ( as indicated, by Don Ho, in the traditional Readme file, since the version 5.6.5 of N++ )

    Of course, important(s) feature(s) may be added for that special occasion, but any idea to work out this major event very well, is welcome :)

    From now on, we have six months to get ready !

    • As for me, I was thinking about an animated picture, relative to this birthday, while opening N++. It will be nice ! Of course, this animation would stand for one version only !

    • It would be possible, also, to insert special animation, when ones click on the main link http://notepad-plus-plus.org/

    • Perhaps, it would be interesting to display a brief list of the main features of Notepad++, with date of installation, through these ten years !

    • And, why not, photo(s) of all Notepad++'s team ! ( Don Ho, Notepad++'s and plugins's developers, translators,... ) ?

    • Users could also decide to donate some money to thank Don and all the developers for this fantastic and essential program ! ( BTW, I just realize that I haven't donate anything for N++, yet. It'll be the right occasion to repair this omission ! )

      .........

      No more idea, for the moment. But, these are only suggestions. I'm sure that someone would have found better ideas than me !

    I'm really curious to read your different answers...

    N++, for ever :)

    Best Regards,

    Hi Guy,

    I'm very touched by the fact that someone in community has thought about the Notepad+ 10 years of anniversary. I admit that I was not even aware of it.
    It worth to celebrate 10 years of anniversary. We wan do it on the website (notepad-plus-plus.org) and on its social networks (Facebook, Twitter and Google+).

    As for me, I was thinking about an animated picture, relative to this birthday, while opening N++.

    This idea is good. However, it's complicate to implement the animation technically.

    to insert special animation, when ones click on the main link http://notepad-plus-plus.org/

    This one is quite easy, the home page content could be modified and an animated gif could be published on the home page.
    A news (on news pages section) would be launched for this event as well.
    The question is: who want to do this animated gif?

    it would be interesting to display a brief list of the main features of Notepad++, with date of installation, through these ten years !

    Yes, it can be done I suppose - since all the release notes are kept.

    In addition, what I can offer during this period:
    1. Big discount for ALL NOTEPAD++ THONGS! (-1 euro/USD : That's the commision I take, so that's the best I can offer!).
    2. Free download Notepad++ (any version) for one week! ;)
    3. Special limited edition for downloading for one week! ;)
