    Notepad++ v6.6 Release Candidate is available to download here (It's the 2nd RC version with the crash fix of the 1st RC):
    http://notepad-plus-plus.org/tmp/npp.6.6.RC.zip

    The main feature of this release is Session snapshot & periodic backup.
    If this feature is enabled (enabled by default), user won't be asked to save unsaved file as he quits Notepad++, and on startup Notepad++ restores the unsaved file and unsaved untitled document of last session.

    This feature brings another advantage - periodic backup of unsaved files which protects your data from the PC crashing or power outage.

    You can always turn off this feature to get back the old behaviour:

    Please let me know if you find any critical bug, otherwise v6.6 will be releaseed in 1 week.

    I appointed 2 seconds to save. Changed the file. Create a new file and entered text. Wait 6 seconds. Killed process notepad++.exe. When run produces an error. Renamed the session.xml, to check whether it is the cause. Notepad++ was started.

      Your crash problem has been fixed and I just updated the new RC package.
