The most recent post on the official NSIS Unicode thread at http://forums.winamp.com/showpost.php?p=3050784&postcount=571 is from March 2016 and states: "The old Unicode NSIS 2 hasn't been rebuilt in a stable release in quite a while. There were still code contributions trickling in after the last stable. It is vulnerable to the DLL hijack issue that the latest NSIS2 and NSIS3b3 releases patched. I'd recommend switching to NSIS3b3."
Yes, although I think that technically they are not called 'ASCII builds' of NSIS but are instead referred to as 'ANSI builds' of NSIS. Whatever the terminology, they are not Unicode builds of NSIS.
According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nullsoft_Scriptable_Install_System "Versions of NSIS before 3.0 did not support Unicode, but only a means to convert some files to different encodings via a plugin. However, a variant of NSIS that has full Unicode support is available [i.e. the Unicode version I discussed above]".
Just a friendly reminder to update the version of NSIS you are using to compile the installer to a more recent version. Currently it will load malicious DLLs in the user's Downloads directory as explained here: https://textslashplain.com/2015/12/18/dll-hijacking-just-wont-die/
