SciTE 5.0.2 is now available from the web site.

SciTE 5.0.2 is an unstable release.

A detailed list of changes is available on the history page.

A font.locale property is provided for Windows + DirectWrite (technology=1). This setting can produce character shapes that match a particular locale which is most commonly used for East Asian languages.

Bug fixed with checking of #! shbang lines for files without extensions.

On Windows, a bug was fixed that caused text to be displayed with an incorrect encoding.

On Windows, fix directory locking by setting current working directory to that of SciTE executable at startup.

SciTE uses Mercurial (Hg) and Git for source code control. The repositories can be cloned with
git clone
hg clone scintilla
hg clone


There will be a macOS release of SciTE 5.0.2 shortly.

Thanks to the contributors of code and documentation and to the testers.
