ScintillaNET has moved to GitHub

The new repository is at

Move announcement

The decision to move to GitHub was in part because:
  • The API for ScintillaNET changed quite a bit in version 3 and the discussion questions and issues here at the CodePlex site are no longer representative of the current version. Users coming to CodePlex looking for information on the new version of ScintillaNET would be swamped with outdated and incorrect information about the old 2.x version.
  • Git makes it easier for other developers not directly associated with the project to contribute back features and bug fixes.
  • GitHub is the new hot place to host code and having more exposure to ScintillaNET gets us more feedback and more development resources.
  • ScintillaNET was practically dead and needed a shot in the arm.
The legacy 2.x code and binaries will continue to be available here at CodePlex but they will no longer be maintained. Any new discussion questions and tracker issues will go unanswered.

So head over to the GitHub repo, star the project if you like it, and enjoy continued support and development over there.
