The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Just about everything seems to work, syntax highlighting and the like. The basic fundamentals of the program have no problems operating.
What does not
NppFTP was having some trouble when I was using it. I was able to download files successfully and view them however when I attempted to create a file the small menu would flash as if trying to update and it'd then turn blank with just a folder icon and /. The only solution was to reconnect and in doing so I found the file was not created.
When typing in the password for an FTP server when inputting of the password is selected, it does not masquerade the password with asterisks but instead displays it. This does not occur when setting up a server and only in that dialogue box in NppFTP.
What was not tested
A lot of things. This is a very feature filled program and I'm not sure how some of the features work and don't use many of the plugins.
The plugin does work in Windows but given that this is such a small issue, the program does not deserve any less than a platinum rating. Almost everything I tested worked and that was a small niche, for the most part the FTP plugin does work.
Avoiding Crash While Editing a Document Which Is Altered by Another Program
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
Recovering from a Lost Menubar
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.
