Final Version 5.9.8
Release Date: 2012-01-05
File editing, saving, opening, tested some notepad++ plugins.
What does not
Using CTRL+Tab to switch between open tabs will cause a freeze (this caught me a few times while editing unsaved documents). After using the "Find in Files" feature, the "Find in Files" window remains open even after the operation is complete.
What was not tested
Macros, everything but everyday basic file editing

Notepad++ crashes under all, but this particular situation when a document is open in npp+ (Notepad++). To test this use gedit to alter a .txt when npp+ has the same .txt open as well.
To avoid this crash, configure the following;
1. Make the check box "Enable" checked in "File Status Auto-detection" (the box of options) within "MISC." (the tab) within "Preferences" from "Settings" (the menu's option).
i.e. have "Settings" -> "Preferences" -> "File Status Auto-detection" -> "MISC." -> "Enable" checked
If you activate a toggled menubar (Settings->Preferences->Menu Bar->check box "Hide (use Alt or F-10 key to toggle"), then close the Preferences window, you will not have a menubar. There are two known options to regain the menubar. (Bug 21918)
Option 1 - disallow the window manager to decorate the windows
Graphics->Window Settings->uncheck box "Allow the window manager to decorate the windows"
Option 2 - have Wine emulate a virtual desktop
Graphics->Window Settings->check box "Emulate a virtual desktop"
Both options are configurations to Wine which can be found in "Wine
configuration", which does not need to be started from the command-line;
that is just the method that I've chosen.
