SciTE Win64 nightly

These are nightly builds of SciTE for 64-bit Windows, compiled using Visual Studio 2017. OK, technically it’s not SciTE (it’s Sc1, the single-file build of SciTE) and not nightly (it’s whenever-I-remember-ly).

Download.

Note: If you want to create an auto-downloading script, you can search that page for Sc1-*.7z files. If none exists, it means I’ve moved the builds elsewhere and you can check back here.

Differences from standard build

I’m making a point of keeping this a very vanilla build, just with a few speed optimisations turned on and without UPX compression. Do not send me bug reports or patches; send them to the SciTE developers instead (though it may be helpful to mention that you got the build from here, just so the developers can see my build options).

Optimisation changes:

  • /O1 replaced by /O2.
  • /fp:fast added.
  • /Qpar added. However, as of 2014-02-08, this does not produce any change in the output.

I’m planning to add /arch:AVX in the future, but not just yet.

Why I’m doing this

What initially attracted me to SciTE was the portability of Sc1. Stick two files in a thumb drive and I had a heavily-customised code editor with me at all times. And I can have the exact same configuration between Windows and Linux! Fast forward years later and it’s still my preferred text/code editor.

The reason I’m maintaining this build is because I already have the setup to create a customised SciTE build for my own use, and doing another build from time to time is not a big deal.
