21GNU nano 2.7.3 "Ontbijtkoek" wipes away a handful of bugs:
22your editor is now able to handle filenames that contain
23newlines, avoids a brief flash of color when switching
24between buffers that are governed by different syntaxes,
25makes the Shift+Ctrl+Arrow keys select text again on a
26Linux console, is more resistant against malformations
27in the positionlog file, and does not crash when ^C is
28typed on systems where it produces the code KEY_CANCEL.
29Oh, and it no longer mistakenly warns about editing an
30unlocked file just after saving a new one. That's it.
31Tastes great with thick butter.

37GNU nano 2.7.2 "Shemesh! Shemesh!" brings another feature:
38the ability to complete with one keystroke (^] by default)
39a fragment of a word to a full word existing elsewhere in
40the current buffer. Besides, this release fixes two bugs
41related to using line numbers in softwrap mode, allows to
42use the PageUp and PageDown keys together with Shift on
43VTE-based terminals, stops the help lines from flickering
44during interactive replacing, makes a 'set fill' override
45an earlier 'set nowrap', properly restores the selected
46region after an external spell check, and improves a few
47other tidbits. If you should find any more bugs, please
48run 'man nano | grep bugs' and report them there.

54GNU nano 2.7.1 "Leuven" adds an often-asked-for feature: the
55ability to display line numbers beside the text. This can
56be activated with -l or --linenumbers on the command line,
57or with 'set linenumbers' in your nanorc, or toggled with
58M-#. The coloring of these numbers can be chosen via the
59option 'set numbercolor'. This release furthermore fixes
60some bugs with scrolling in softwrap mode, is more strict
61in the parsing of key rebindings, and marks a new buffer
62as modified when the output of a command (^R ^X) has been
63read into it. Come and check it out!

69GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
70selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
71Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
72terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
73the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
74but it's time to get it out there.
75
76With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
77we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,
78back to a healthy diet of fresh green free grass.

84nano 2.6.3 "Marika" makes the Ctrl+Arrow keys work also on
85a Linux virtual console, takes as verbatim only the very
86first keystroke after M-V, removes any lock files that it
87holds when dying, doesn't abort when a word contains digits
88(when using the default speller), fixes a small sorting bug
89in the file browser, makes searching case-insensitively in
90a UTF-8 locale a little faster, and doesn't enter invalid
91bytes when holding down both Alt keys. Santé!

97nano 2.6.2 "Le vent nous portera" adds two new features: the
98keystrokes Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down for jumping between blocks
99of text, and the option 'wordchars' for specifying which
100characters (beside alphanumeric ones) should be considered
101word-forming. Further, it provides feedback during Unicode
102input (M-V followed by a six-digit hexadecimal number which
103must start with 0 or 10), avoids a crash when resizing the
104window during Verbatim input, doesn't drop a keystroke after
105having been suspended, and replaces the beginning-of-line
106anchor (^) just once per line. There are also several tiny
107improvements in screen rendering and key handling.
108Come get your hair tousled!

114nano 2.6.1 "Stampede" is chiefly a translation update, but also
115adds one little feature (the ability to use negative numbers
116with Go To Line: -1 meaning the first line from the bottom),
117includes syntax highlighting for Rust, and fixes three tiny
118bugs (but in such far corners of the editor that they aren't
119even worth mentioning).

125nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
126some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
127the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
128checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
129default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
130shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
131is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
132there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
133when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
134on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
135and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
136things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
137
138And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
139Bye! And thanks for all the grass!
