21GNU nano 2.7.2 "Shemesh! Shemesh!" brings another feature:
22the ability to complete with one keystroke (^] by default)
23a fragment of a word to a full word existing elsewhere in
24the current buffer. Besides, this release fixes two bugs
25related to using line numbers in softwrap mode, allows to
26use the PageUp and PageDown keys together with Shift on
27VTE-based terminals, stops the help lines from flickering
28during interactive replacing, makes a 'set fill' override
29an earlier 'set nowrap', properly restores the selected
30region after an external spell check, and improves a few
31other tidbits. If you should find any more bugs, please
32run 'man nano | grep bugs' and report them there.

38GNU nano 2.7.1 "Leuven" adds an often-asked-for feature: the
39ability to display line numbers beside the text. This can
40be activated with -l or --linenumbers on the command line,
41or with 'set linenumbers' in your nanorc, or toggled with
42M-#. The coloring of these numbers can be chosen via the
43option 'set numbercolor'. This release furthermore fixes
44some bugs with scrolling in softwrap mode, is more strict
45in the parsing of key rebindings, and marks a new buffer
46as modified when the output of a command (^R ^X) has been
47read into it. Come and check it out!

53GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
54selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
55Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
56terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
57the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
58but it's time to get it out there.
59
60With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
61we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,
62back to a healthy diet of fresh green free grass.

68nano 2.6.3 "Marika" makes the Ctrl+Arrow keys work also on
69a Linux virtual console, takes as verbatim only the very
70first keystroke after M-V, removes any lock files that it
71holds when dying, doesn't abort when a word contains digits
72(when using the default speller), fixes a small sorting bug
73in the file browser, makes searching case-insensitively in
74a UTF-8 locale a little faster, and doesn't enter invalid
75bytes when holding down both Alt keys. Santé!

81nano 2.6.2 "Le vent nous portera" adds two new features: the
82keystrokes Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down for jumping between blocks
83of text, and the option 'wordchars' for specifying which
84characters (beside alphanumeric ones) should be considered
85word-forming. Further, it provides feedback during Unicode
86input (M-V followed by a six-digit hexadecimal number which
87must start with 0 or 10), avoids a crash when resizing the
88window during Verbatim input, doesn't drop a keystroke after
89having been suspended, and replaces the beginning-of-line
90anchor (^) just once per line. There are also several tiny
91improvements in screen rendering and key handling.
92Come get your hair tousled!

98nano 2.6.1 "Stampede" is chiefly a translation update, but also
99adds one little feature (the ability to use negative numbers
100with Go To Line: -1 meaning the first line from the bottom),
101includes syntax highlighting for Rust, and fixes three tiny
102bugs (but in such far corners of the editor that they aren't
103even worth mentioning).

109nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
110some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
111the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
112checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
113default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
114shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
115is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
116there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
117when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
118on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
119and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
120things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
121
122And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
123Bye! And thanks for all the grass!
