139GNU nano 3.2 "Het kromme hout" changes the default binding
140for the linter to M-B so that the spell checker (^T) can
141always be used, and changes (when linting) the text in the
142title bar and the color of the status bar to make linting
143mode more obvious. It also adds a bindable 'zap' function
144for deleting a line or marked region without changing the
67c6d961 145cutbuffer, adds --zap to bind the &lt;Del&gt; and &lt;Backspace&gt;
eb64fc57 146keys to the zap function when something is marked, and
67c6d961 147hard-binds &lt;Alt+Del&gt; to 'zap'. Furthermore, it shows the
eb64fc57
BS
148cursor also in the help viewer (when --showcursor is used),
149renames the bindable functions 'prevhistory' to 'older' and
150'nexthistory' to 'newer' (update your nanorcs when needed),
151reads the nanorc files also in restricted mode to allow
152customization by the user (if this should not be allowed,
153use --ignorercfiles in addition to --restricted), allows
154in view mode to open also other files (if this should not
155be allowed, use --restricted in addition to --view), makes
156resizes respect a relative --fill again, no longer binds
157F13...F15 by default, properly re-highlights a misspelled
158word after invoking help in the internal spell checker,
159and does not skip Unicode characters in string binds.

241GNU nano 2.9.5 "Ki&scaron;a pada" changes the way the Scroll-Up
242and Scroll-Down commands work (M-- and M-+): instead of
243keeping the cursor in the same screen position they now
244keep the cursor in the same text position (if possible).
245This version further adds a new color name, "normal",
246which gives the default foreground or background color,
247which is useful when you want to undo some overzealous
248painting by earlier syntax regexes. Bug fixes include:
249a segfault when trying to insert a file in restricted
250mode, the reading in of a new file being "undoable", a
251slight miswrapping of help texts when --linenumbers was
252used, and the shell syntax coloring the word "tar" in
253file names.

264row when --smooth is used, does not fail when redoing a

267cannot move. Further, it treats tabs fully the same as
268spaces when doing automatic hard-wrapping, allows syntax
269names to be unquoted, and removes two deprecated options
270and six deprecated bindable function names.

423go to the start and end of the file (on terminals that
424support those keystrokes), places the cursor better when
425linting, lets the linter ask only once whether to open
426an included file, and adds bindings for ^Up and ^Down
427in the file browser. Don't sit on your hands.

433GNU nano 2.8.0 "Axat" makes it easier to move around in
434softwrapped lines: the Up and Down keys now step from
435visual row to visual row instead of jumping between
436logical lines, and the Home and End keys now move to
437the start and end of a row, and only when already
438there, then to the start and end of the logical line.
439Furthermore, the screen can now scroll per row instead
440of always per logical line. On an entirely different
441front: nano now makes use of gnulib, to make it build
442on more platforms. In short: there were many internal
443changes, not many user-visible ones (apart form the
444new softwrap navigation). The conversion to gnulib
445was done by Mike Frysinger, the softwrap overhaul by
446David Ramsey.

452GNU nano 2.7.5 "Nijntje" can properly search and replace
453the \B and \b regex anchors, correctly repaints things
454when multiline regexes with identical start and end are
455involved, fixes a crash with zero-length regex matches,
456does replacements at the edges of a marked region right,
457no longer hides double-width characters at the head of
458softwrapped rows, displays at most three warnings at
459startup, and documents the ability to read a file from
460standard input. Come tickle my ears.

466GNU nano 2.7.4 "Red dress" undoes deletions in an orderly
467manner again (bug was introduced in previous version),
468sets the preferred x position for vertical movements
469more consistently, avoids some scrolling problems in
470softwrap mode, installs the Info manual also when your
471system lacks 'makeinfo', and corrects the behavior of
690585d0 472the beginning-of-word anchor (\&lt;) in regex searches.

478GNU nano 2.7.3 "Ontbijtkoek" wipes away a handful of bugs:
479your editor is now able to handle filenames that contain
480newlines, avoids a brief flash of color when switching
481between buffers that are governed by different syntaxes,
482makes the Shift+Ctrl+Arrow keys select text again on a
483Linux console, is more resistant against malformations
484in the positionlog file, and does not crash when ^C is
485typed on systems where it produces the code KEY_CANCEL.
486Oh, and it no longer mistakenly warns about editing an
487unlocked file just after saving a new one. That's it.
488Tastes great with thick butter.

494GNU nano 2.7.2 "Shemesh! Shemesh!" brings another feature:
495the ability to complete with one keystroke (^] by default)
496a fragment of a word to a full word existing elsewhere in
497the current buffer. Besides, this release fixes two bugs
498related to using line numbers in softwrap mode, allows to
499use the PageUp and PageDown keys together with Shift on
500VTE-based terminals, stops the help lines from flickering
501during interactive replacing, makes a 'set fill' override
502an earlier 'set nowrap', properly restores the selected
503region after an external spell check, and improves a few
504other tidbits. If you should find any more bugs, please
505run 'man nano | grep bugs' and report them there.

511GNU nano 2.7.1 "Leuven" adds an often-asked-for feature: the
512ability to display line numbers beside the text. This can
513be activated with -l or --linenumbers on the command line,
514or with 'set linenumbers' in your nanorc, or toggled with
515M-#. The coloring of these numbers can be chosen via the
516option 'set numbercolor'. This release furthermore fixes
517some bugs with scrolling in softwrap mode, is more strict
518in the parsing of key rebindings, and marks a new buffer
519as modified when the output of a command (^R ^X) has been
520read into it. Come and check it out!

526GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
527selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
528Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
529terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
530the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
531but it's time to get it out there.
532
533With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
534we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,
535back to a healthy diet of fresh green free grass.

541nano 2.6.3 "Marika" makes the Ctrl+Arrow keys work also on
542a Linux virtual console, takes as verbatim only the very
543first keystroke after M-V, removes any lock files that it
544holds when dying, doesn't abort when a word contains digits
545(when using the default speller), fixes a small sorting bug
546in the file browser, makes searching case-insensitively in
547a UTF-8 locale a little faster, and doesn't enter invalid
0fe6854f 548bytes when holding down both Alt keys. Sant&eacute;!

554nano 2.6.2 "Le vent nous portera" adds two new features: the
555keystrokes Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down for jumping between blocks
556of text, and the option 'wordchars' for specifying which
557characters (beside alphanumeric ones) should be considered
558word-forming. Further, it provides feedback during Unicode
559input (M-V followed by a six-digit hexadecimal number which
560must start with 0 or 10), avoids a crash when resizing the
561window during Verbatim input, doesn't drop a keystroke after
562having been suspended, and replaces the beginning-of-line
563anchor (^) just once per line. There are also several tiny
564improvements in screen rendering and key handling.
565Come get your hair tousled!

571nano 2.6.1 "Stampede" is chiefly a translation update, but also
572adds one little feature (the ability to use negative numbers
573with Go To Line: -1 meaning the first line from the bottom),
574includes syntax highlighting for Rust, and fixes three tiny
575bugs (but in such far corners of the editor that they aren't
576even worth mentioning).

582nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
583some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
584the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
585checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
586default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
587shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
588is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
589there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
590when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
591on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
592and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
593things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
594
595And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
596Bye! And thanks for all the grass!
