135GNU nano 3.2 "Het kromme hout" changes the default binding
136for the linter to M-B so that the spell checker (^T) can
137always be used, and changes (when linting) the text in the
138title bar and the color of the status bar to make linting
139mode more obvious. It also adds a bindable 'zap' function
140for deleting a line or marked region without changing the
67c6d961 141cutbuffer, adds --zap to bind the &lt;Del&gt; and &lt;Backspace&gt;
eb64fc57 142keys to the zap function when something is marked, and
67c6d961 143hard-binds &lt;Alt+Del&gt; to 'zap'. Furthermore, it shows the
eb64fc57
BS
144cursor also in the help viewer (when --showcursor is used),
145renames the bindable functions 'prevhistory' to 'older' and
146'nexthistory' to 'newer' (update your nanorcs when needed),
147reads the nanorc files also in restricted mode to allow
148customization by the user (if this should not be allowed,
149use --ignorercfiles in addition to --restricted), allows
150in view mode to open also other files (if this should not
151be allowed, use --restricted in addition to --view), makes
152resizes respect a relative --fill again, no longer binds
153F13...F15 by default, properly re-highlights a misspelled
154word after invoking help in the internal spell checker,
155and does not skip Unicode characters in string binds.

3f0eb75c
BS
176to 'findprevious' by default (the Tabs-to-Spaces toggle is
177placed on M-O, and the More-Space toggle is fully removed),
178makes an external spell check undoable, shows the correct
179number of lines on the status bar when opening multiple
180files, removes the 'formatter' command, removes the
181'searchagain' bindable function (M-W is now bound to
182'findnext' by default), moves the No-Convert toggle to the
183Insert menu, removes the Backup and New-Buffer toggles from
184the main menu (they remain in the Write-Out and Insert
185menus, respectively), is more precise in what it accepts as
0c351168 186a rebindable key name, ignores any presses of &lt;Esc&gt; before
3f0eb75c

187a valid command keystroke, recognizes some more escape
188sequences for modified editing-pad keys, does not hide
189rcfile error messages on a Linux console, renames the

191'paste', and avoids a possible hang during a Full-Justify.

200better at detecting and maintaining paragraphs, is able to
201justify //-style comments, fixes a crash when the binding
202of a key to a string lacks a closing quote, gives feedback
203about the number of lines written also when prepending or
204appending, and fixes a couple of bugs with the linter.

212ends instead of beginnings, accepts multibyte letters for
213the Yes/No/All answers, does emergency saves of changed
214buffers in the unlikely event that nano crashes, adds the
215until-now missing bindable function 'linenumbers', and
216renames the toggles 'constupdate' to 'constantshow' and
217'cuttoend' to 'cutfromcursor', for consistency with the
218corresponding options -- adjust your nanorc files soon.

227for shell scripts and PO files, makes a replacing session
228go always forward by default, no longer inserts a newline
229after an external spell check of a selected region, always
230accepts the English Y and N (and A) at a yes-no prompt in
231any locale, and solves a few hypothetical bugs.

237GNU nano 2.9.5 "Ki&scaron;a pada" changes the way the Scroll-Up
238and Scroll-Down commands work (M-- and M-+): instead of
239keeping the cursor in the same screen position they now
240keep the cursor in the same text position (if possible).
241This version further adds a new color name, "normal",
242which gives the default foreground or background color,
243which is useful when you want to undo some overzealous
244painting by earlier syntax regexes. Bug fixes include:
245a segfault when trying to insert a file in restricted
246mode, the reading in of a new file being "undoable", a
247slight miswrapping of help texts when --linenumbers was
248used, and the shell syntax coloring the word "tar" in
249file names.

260row when --smooth is used, does not fail when redoing a
261file insertion, and cancels a Shift-selection when any
262cursor key is pressed without Shift even when the cursor
263cannot move. Further, it treats tabs fully the same as
264spaces when doing automatic hard-wrapping, allows syntax
265names to be unquoted, and removes two deprecated options
266and six deprecated bindable function names.

275work also when your keyboard still emits escape sequences,
276adds the options -M and --trimblanks for the command line,
277recognizes key combos with Shift on a few more terminals,
278no longer shows dots in certain prompt texts when visible
aa32601b 279whitespace is turned on, fixes two corner cases when doing

293linefeed at EOF, fixes a build issue on the BSDs, shows
294the cursor again when compiled with --withslang, renames
295the option 'justifytrim' to 'trimblanks' because it will
296now snip trailing whitespace also while you are typing
297(and hard-wrapping is enabled), continues pushing words
298to the next line much longer (when hard-wrapping), makes
690585d0 299&lt;Tab&gt; and &lt;Shift+Tab&gt; indent and unindent a marked region,
1aac1698
BS
300allows unindenting when not all lines are indented, lets a
301region marked with Shift persist when indenting/unindenting
302or commenting/uncommenting it, and in those cases excludes

304(which makes for a more intuitive behavior).

325saves the current file), changes ^W to start always a
326forward search, shows the number of open buffers (when
327more than one) in the title bar, no longer asks to press
328Enter when there are errors in an rc file, retires the
329options '--quiet' and 'set quiet' and 'set backwards',
330makes indenting and unindenting undoable, will look in
331$XDG_CONFIG_HOME for a nanorc file and in $XDG_DATA_HOME
332for the history files, adds a history stack for executed
333commands (^R^X), does not overwrite the position-history

429GNU nano 2.8.0 "Axat" makes it easier to move around in
430softwrapped lines: the Up and Down keys now step from
431visual row to visual row instead of jumping between
432logical lines, and the Home and End keys now move to
433the start and end of a row, and only when already
434there, then to the start and end of the logical line.
435Furthermore, the screen can now scroll per row instead
436of always per logical line. On an entirely different
437front: nano now makes use of gnulib, to make it build
438on more platforms. In short: there were many internal
439changes, not many user-visible ones (apart form the
440new softwrap navigation). The conversion to gnulib
441was done by Mike Frysinger, the softwrap overhaul by
442David Ramsey.

448GNU nano 2.7.5 "Nijntje" can properly search and replace
449the \B and \b regex anchors, correctly repaints things
450when multiline regexes with identical start and end are
451involved, fixes a crash with zero-length regex matches,
452does replacements at the edges of a marked region right,
453no longer hides double-width characters at the head of
454softwrapped rows, displays at most three warnings at
455startup, and documents the ability to read a file from
456standard input. Come tickle my ears.

462GNU nano 2.7.4 "Red dress" undoes deletions in an orderly
463manner again (bug was introduced in previous version),
464sets the preferred x position for vertical movements
465more consistently, avoids some scrolling problems in
466softwrap mode, installs the Info manual also when your
467system lacks 'makeinfo', and corrects the behavior of
690585d0 468the beginning-of-word anchor (\&lt;) in regex searches.

474GNU nano 2.7.3 "Ontbijtkoek" wipes away a handful of bugs:
475your editor is now able to handle filenames that contain
476newlines, avoids a brief flash of color when switching
477between buffers that are governed by different syntaxes,
478makes the Shift+Ctrl+Arrow keys select text again on a
479Linux console, is more resistant against malformations
480in the positionlog file, and does not crash when ^C is
481typed on systems where it produces the code KEY_CANCEL.
482Oh, and it no longer mistakenly warns about editing an
483unlocked file just after saving a new one. That's it.
484Tastes great with thick butter.

490GNU nano 2.7.2 "Shemesh! Shemesh!" brings another feature:
491the ability to complete with one keystroke (^] by default)
492a fragment of a word to a full word existing elsewhere in
493the current buffer. Besides, this release fixes two bugs
494related to using line numbers in softwrap mode, allows to
495use the PageUp and PageDown keys together with Shift on
496VTE-based terminals, stops the help lines from flickering
497during interactive replacing, makes a 'set fill' override
498an earlier 'set nowrap', properly restores the selected
499region after an external spell check, and improves a few
500other tidbits. If you should find any more bugs, please
501run 'man nano | grep bugs' and report them there.

507GNU nano 2.7.1 "Leuven" adds an often-asked-for feature: the
508ability to display line numbers beside the text. This can
509be activated with -l or --linenumbers on the command line,
510or with 'set linenumbers' in your nanorc, or toggled with
511M-#. The coloring of these numbers can be chosen via the
512option 'set numbercolor'. This release furthermore fixes
513some bugs with scrolling in softwrap mode, is more strict
514in the parsing of key rebindings, and marks a new buffer
515as modified when the output of a command (^R ^X) has been
516read into it. Come and check it out!

522GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
523selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
524Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
525terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
526the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
527but it's time to get it out there.
528
529With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
530we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,
531back to a healthy diet of fresh green free grass.

537nano 2.6.3 "Marika" makes the Ctrl+Arrow keys work also on
538a Linux virtual console, takes as verbatim only the very
539first keystroke after M-V, removes any lock files that it
540holds when dying, doesn't abort when a word contains digits
541(when using the default speller), fixes a small sorting bug
542in the file browser, makes searching case-insensitively in
543a UTF-8 locale a little faster, and doesn't enter invalid
0fe6854f 544bytes when holding down both Alt keys. Sant&eacute;!

550nano 2.6.2 "Le vent nous portera" adds two new features: the
551keystrokes Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down for jumping between blocks
552of text, and the option 'wordchars' for specifying which
553characters (beside alphanumeric ones) should be considered
554word-forming. Further, it provides feedback during Unicode
555input (M-V followed by a six-digit hexadecimal number which
556must start with 0 or 10), avoids a crash when resizing the
557window during Verbatim input, doesn't drop a keystroke after
558having been suspended, and replaces the beginning-of-line
559anchor (^) just once per line. There are also several tiny
560improvements in screen rendering and key handling.
561Come get your hair tousled!

567nano 2.6.1 "Stampede" is chiefly a translation update, but also
568adds one little feature (the ability to use negative numbers
569with Go To Line: -1 meaning the first line from the bottom),
570includes syntax highlighting for Rust, and fixes three tiny
571bugs (but in such far corners of the editor that they aren't
572even worth mentioning).

578nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
579some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
580the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
581checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
582default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
583shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
584is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
585there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
586when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
587on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
588and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
589things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
590
591And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
592Bye! And thanks for all the grass!
