21GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
22selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
23Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
24terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
25the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
26but it's time to get it out there.
27
28With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
29we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,
30back to a healthy diet of fresh green free grass.

36nano 2.6.3 "Marika" makes the Ctrl+Arrow keys work also on
37a Linux virtual console, takes as verbatim only the very
38first keystroke after M-V, removes any lock files that it
39holds when dying, doesn't abort when a word contains digits
40(when using the default speller), fixes a small sorting bug
41in the file browser, makes searching case-insensitively in
42a UTF-8 locale a little faster, and doesn't enter invalid
43bytes when holding down both Alt keys. Santé!

49nano 2.6.2 "Le vent nous portera" adds two new features: the
50keystrokes Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down for jumping between blocks
51of text, and the option 'wordchars' for specifying which
52characters (beside alphanumeric ones) should be considered
53word-forming. Further, it provides feedback during Unicode
54input (M-V followed by a six-digit hexadecimal number which
55must start with 0 or 10), avoids a crash when resizing the
56window during Verbatim input, doesn't drop a keystroke after
57having been suspended, and replaces the beginning-of-line
58anchor (^) just once per line. There are also several tiny
59improvements in screen rendering and key handling.
60Come get your hair tousled!

66nano 2.6.1 "Stampede" is chiefly a translation update, but also
67adds one little feature (the ability to use negative numbers
68with Go To Line: -1 meaning the first line from the bottom),
69includes syntax highlighting for Rust, and fixes three tiny
70bugs (but in such far corners of the editor that they aren't
71even worth mentioning).

77nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
78some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
79the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
80checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
81default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
82shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
83is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
84there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
85when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
86on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
87and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
88things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
89
90And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
91Bye! And thanks for all the grass!
