126GNU nano 3.2 "Het kromme hout" changes the default binding
127for the linter to M-B so that the spell checker (^T) can
128always be used, and changes (when linting) the text in the
129title bar and the color of the status bar to make linting
130mode more obvious. It also adds a bindable 'zap' function
131for deleting a line or marked region without changing the
67c6d961 132cutbuffer, adds --zap to bind the &lt;Del&gt; and &lt;Backspace&gt;
eb64fc57 133keys to the zap function when something is marked, and
67c6d961 134hard-binds &lt;Alt+Del&gt; to 'zap'. Furthermore, it shows the
eb64fc57
BS
135cursor also in the help viewer (when --showcursor is used),
136renames the bindable functions 'prevhistory' to 'older' and
137'nexthistory' to 'newer' (update your nanorcs when needed),
138reads the nanorc files also in restricted mode to allow
139customization by the user (if this should not be allowed,
140use --ignorercfiles in addition to --restricted), allows
141in view mode to open also other files (if this should not
142be allowed, use --restricted in addition to --view), makes
143resizes respect a relative --fill again, no longer binds
144F13...F15 by default, properly re-highlights a misspelled
145word after invoking help in the internal spell checker,
146and does not skip Unicode characters in string binds.

174Insert menu, removes the Backup and New-Buffer toggles from
175the main menu (they remain in the Write-Out and Insert

205buffers in the unlikely event that nano crashes, adds the
206until-now missing bindable function 'linenumbers', and
207renames the toggles 'constupdate' to 'constantshow' and

228GNU nano 2.9.5 "Ki&scaron;a pada" changes the way the Scroll-Up
229and Scroll-Down commands work (M-- and M-+): instead of
230keeping the cursor in the same screen position they now
231keep the cursor in the same text position (if possible).
232This version further adds a new color name, "normal",
233which gives the default foreground or background color,
234which is useful when you want to undo some overzealous
235painting by earlier syntax regexes. Bug fixes include:
236a segfault when trying to insert a file in restricted
237mode, the reading in of a new file being "undoable", a
238slight miswrapping of help texts when --linenumbers was
239used, and the shell syntax coloring the word "tar" in
240file names.

251row when --smooth is used, does not fail when redoing a

253cursor key is pressed without Shift even when the cursor
254cannot move. Further, it treats tabs fully the same as
255spaces when doing automatic hard-wrapping, allows syntax
256names to be unquoted, and removes two deprecated options
257and six deprecated bindable function names.

266work also when your keyboard still emits escape sequences,

291allows unindenting when not all lines are indented, lets a

426Furthermore, the screen can now scroll per row instead
427of always per logical line. On an entirely different
428front: nano now makes use of gnulib, to make it build
429on more platforms. In short: there were many internal
430changes, not many user-visible ones (apart form the
431new softwrap navigation). The conversion to gnulib
432was done by Mike Frysinger, the softwrap overhaul by
433David Ramsey.

439GNU nano 2.7.5 "Nijntje" can properly search and replace
440the \B and \b regex anchors, correctly repaints things
441when multiline regexes with identical start and end are
442involved, fixes a crash with zero-length regex matches,
443does replacements at the edges of a marked region right,
444no longer hides double-width characters at the head of
445softwrapped rows, displays at most three warnings at
446startup, and documents the ability to read a file from
447standard input. Come tickle my ears.

453GNU nano 2.7.4 "Red dress" undoes deletions in an orderly
454manner again (bug was introduced in previous version),
455sets the preferred x position for vertical movements
456more consistently, avoids some scrolling problems in
457softwrap mode, installs the Info manual also when your
458system lacks 'makeinfo', and corrects the behavior of
690585d0 459the beginning-of-word anchor (\&lt;) in regex searches.

465GNU nano 2.7.3 "Ontbijtkoek" wipes away a handful of bugs:
466your editor is now able to handle filenames that contain
467newlines, avoids a brief flash of color when switching
468between buffers that are governed by different syntaxes,
469makes the Shift+Ctrl+Arrow keys select text again on a
470Linux console, is more resistant against malformations
471in the positionlog file, and does not crash when ^C is
472typed on systems where it produces the code KEY_CANCEL.
473Oh, and it no longer mistakenly warns about editing an
474unlocked file just after saving a new one. That's it.
475Tastes great with thick butter.

481GNU nano 2.7.2 "Shemesh! Shemesh!" brings another feature:
482the ability to complete with one keystroke (^] by default)
483a fragment of a word to a full word existing elsewhere in
484the current buffer. Besides, this release fixes two bugs
485related to using line numbers in softwrap mode, allows to
486use the PageUp and PageDown keys together with Shift on
487VTE-based terminals, stops the help lines from flickering
488during interactive replacing, makes a 'set fill' override
489an earlier 'set nowrap', properly restores the selected
490region after an external spell check, and improves a few
491other tidbits. If you should find any more bugs, please
492run 'man nano | grep bugs' and report them there.

498GNU nano 2.7.1 "Leuven" adds an often-asked-for feature: the
499ability to display line numbers beside the text. This can
500be activated with -l or --linenumbers on the command line,
501or with 'set linenumbers' in your nanorc, or toggled with
502M-#. The coloring of these numbers can be chosen via the
503option 'set numbercolor'. This release furthermore fixes
504some bugs with scrolling in softwrap mode, is more strict
505in the parsing of key rebindings, and marks a new buffer
506as modified when the output of a command (^R ^X) has been
507read into it. Come and check it out!

513GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
514selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
515Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
516terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
517the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
518but it's time to get it out there.
519
520With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
521we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,
522back to a healthy diet of fresh green free grass.

528nano 2.6.3 "Marika" makes the Ctrl+Arrow keys work also on
529a Linux virtual console, takes as verbatim only the very
530first keystroke after M-V, removes any lock files that it
531holds when dying, doesn't abort when a word contains digits
532(when using the default speller), fixes a small sorting bug
533in the file browser, makes searching case-insensitively in
534a UTF-8 locale a little faster, and doesn't enter invalid
0fe6854f 535bytes when holding down both Alt keys. Sant&eacute;!

541nano 2.6.2 "Le vent nous portera" adds two new features: the
542keystrokes Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down for jumping between blocks
543of text, and the option 'wordchars' for specifying which
544characters (beside alphanumeric ones) should be considered
545word-forming. Further, it provides feedback during Unicode
546input (M-V followed by a six-digit hexadecimal number which
547must start with 0 or 10), avoids a crash when resizing the
548window during Verbatim input, doesn't drop a keystroke after
549having been suspended, and replaces the beginning-of-line
550anchor (^) just once per line. There are also several tiny
551improvements in screen rendering and key handling.
552Come get your hair tousled!

558nano 2.6.1 "Stampede" is chiefly a translation update, but also
559adds one little feature (the ability to use negative numbers
560with Go To Line: -1 meaning the first line from the bottom),
561includes syntax highlighting for Rust, and fixes three tiny
562bugs (but in such far corners of the editor that they aren't
563even worth mentioning).

569nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
570some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
571the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
572checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
573default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
574shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
575is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
576there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
577when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
578on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
579and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
580things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
581
582And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
583Bye! And thanks for all the grass!
