Far crashes plugins - especially colorer

Post by MortenMacFly » Thu 20 Sep, 2012 05:21

Win7/64bit/Ultimate/Far3.0.2806/ConEmu12.09.16:

Since 2-3 revisions of the nighlies, far crashes the plugins "colorer" (and others sometimes), when opening an editor. Colorer-take5 is at revision 1.3.10. As this didn't happen before my last update of Far (from nighlies Far30b2796) I suspect a change in Far might be the reason...

Can anybody (preferable with colorer) reproduce? Am I wrong?

Plugin API changed in build 2799+.
Almost all far3 plugins will not work while not adapted to api changes.
Downgrade to version 2798. old versions here

Thanks for the hint and sorry for the late reply. This workes.

However, I really hope there will be updates for the plugins, especially colorer whose update frequency is not that great.

Far3 Plugin API frozen 2 days ago.
Only cosmetic changes (that doesn't break binary compatibility) and critical bug fixes accepted.
I hope plugin authors still have motivation to update their code...
