180GNU nano 3.2 "Het kromme hout" changes the default binding

182always be used, and changes (when linting) the text in the

184mode more obvious. It also adds a bindable 'zap' function
185for deleting a line or marked region without changing the
67c6d961 186cutbuffer, adds --zap to bind the &lt;Del&gt; and &lt;Backspace&gt;
eb64fc57 187keys to the zap function when something is marked, and
67c6d961 188hard-binds &lt;Alt+Del&gt; to 'zap'. Furthermore, it shows the
eb64fc57

189cursor also in the help viewer (when --showcursor is used),
190renames the bindable functions 'prevhistory' to 'older' and
191'nexthistory' to 'newer' (update your nanorcs when needed),
192reads the nanorc files also in restricted mode to allow
193customization by the user (if this should not be allowed,
194use --ignorercfiles in addition to --restricted), allows
195in view mode to open also other files (if this should not
196be allowed, use --restricted in addition to --view), makes

198F13...F15 by default, properly re-highlights a misspelled

285keep the cursor in the same text position (if possible).
286This version further adds a new color name, "normal",
287which gives the default foreground or background color,
288which is useful when you want to undo some overzealous
289painting by earlier syntax regexes. Bug fixes include:
290a segfault when trying to insert a file in restricted
291mode, the reading in of a new file being "undoable", a
292slight miswrapping of help texts when --linenumbers was

413GNU nano 2.8.5 "Farouche" avoids a crash when waking from
414a suspension that was induced from the outside, allows
415negative line and column numbers on the command line,
416avoids some flickering when resizing the screen while
417in the file browser, opens files in the order they were
418mentioned on the command line, and does not pretend to
419have woken from suspension when receiving a SIGCONT.

442GNU nano 2.8.2 "Krats" adds another new feature: it makes
443the ^G help texts searchable with ^W. Apart from that,
444it fixes a crash when resizing the window in the middle
445of verbatim input, avoids an unlikely crash when used
446without UTF-8 support in some locales, avoids redrawing
447the screen twice when switching between buffers while
448line numbers are active, and works around a coloring
449bug on musl. Plus tweaks to the documentation; plus
450translation updates for fifteen languages.

460across two rows, moves the cursor more predictably (at
461the cost of sometimes putting it on the second "half"
462of a character), avoids creating lines that consist of
463only blanks when using autoindent, makes ^Home and ^End
464go to the start and end of the file (on terminals that
465support those keystrokes), places the cursor better when
466linting, lets the linter ask only once whether to open
467an included file, and adds bindings for ^Up and ^Down
468in the file browser. Don't sit on your hands.

474GNU nano 2.8.0 "Axat" makes it easier to move around in
475softwrapped lines: the Up and Down keys now step from
476visual row to visual row instead of jumping between
477logical lines, and the Home and End keys now move to
478the start and end of a row, and only when already
479there, then to the start and end of the logical line.
480Furthermore, the screen can now scroll per row instead
481of always per logical line. On an entirely different
482front: nano now makes use of gnulib, to make it build
483on more platforms. In short: there were many internal
484changes, not many user-visible ones (apart form the
485new softwrap navigation). The conversion to gnulib
486was done by Mike Frysinger, the softwrap overhaul by
487David Ramsey.

493GNU nano 2.7.5 "Nijntje" can properly search and replace
494the \B and \b regex anchors, correctly repaints things
495when multiline regexes with identical start and end are
496involved, fixes a crash with zero-length regex matches,
497does replacements at the edges of a marked region right,
498no longer hides double-width characters at the head of
499softwrapped rows, displays at most three warnings at
500startup, and documents the ability to read a file from
501standard input. Come tickle my ears.

519GNU nano 2.7.3 "Ontbijtkoek" wipes away a handful of bugs:
520your editor is now able to handle filenames that contain
521newlines, avoids a brief flash of color when switching
522between buffers that are governed by different syntaxes,
523makes the Shift+Ctrl+Arrow keys select text again on a
524Linux console, is more resistant against malformations
525in the positionlog file, and does not crash when ^C is
526typed on systems where it produces the code KEY_CANCEL.
527Oh, and it no longer mistakenly warns about editing an
528unlocked file just after saving a new one. That's it.
529Tastes great with thick butter.

535GNU nano 2.7.2 "Shemesh! Shemesh!" brings another feature:
536the ability to complete with one keystroke (^] by default)
537a fragment of a word to a full word existing elsewhere in
538the current buffer. Besides, this release fixes two bugs
539related to using line numbers in softwrap mode, allows to
540use the PageUp and PageDown keys together with Shift on
541VTE-based terminals, stops the help lines from flickering
542during interactive replacing, makes a 'set fill' override
543an earlier 'set nowrap', properly restores the selected
544region after an external spell check, and improves a few
545other tidbits. If you should find any more bugs, please
546run 'man nano | grep bugs' and report them there.

552GNU nano 2.7.1 "Leuven" adds an often-asked-for feature: the
553ability to display line numbers beside the text. This can
554be activated with -l or --linenumbers on the command line,
555or with 'set linenumbers' in your nanorc, or toggled with
556M-#. The coloring of these numbers can be chosen via the
557option 'set numbercolor'. This release furthermore fixes
558some bugs with scrolling in softwrap mode, is more strict
559in the parsing of key rebindings, and marks a new buffer
560as modified when the output of a command (^R ^X) has been
561read into it. Come and check it out!

567GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
568selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
569Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
570terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
571the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
572but it's time to get it out there.
573
574With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
575we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,
576back to a healthy diet of fresh green free grass.

582nano 2.6.3 "Marika" makes the Ctrl+Arrow keys work also on
583a Linux virtual console, takes as verbatim only the very
584first keystroke after M-V, removes any lock files that it
585holds when dying, doesn't abort when a word contains digits
586(when using the default speller), fixes a small sorting bug
587in the file browser, makes searching case-insensitively in
588a UTF-8 locale a little faster, and doesn't enter invalid
0fe6854f 589bytes when holding down both Alt keys. Sant&eacute;!

595nano 2.6.2 "Le vent nous portera" adds two new features: the
596keystrokes Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down for jumping between blocks
597of text, and the option 'wordchars' for specifying which
598characters (beside alphanumeric ones) should be considered
599word-forming. Further, it provides feedback during Unicode
600input (M-V followed by a six-digit hexadecimal number which
601must start with 0 or 10), avoids a crash when resizing the
602window during Verbatim input, doesn't drop a keystroke after
603having been suspended, and replaces the beginning-of-line
604anchor (^) just once per line. There are also several tiny
605improvements in screen rendering and key handling.
606Come get your hair tousled!

613adds one little feature (the ability to use negative numbers
614with Go To Line: -1 meaning the first line from the bottom),
615includes syntax highlighting for Rust, and fixes three tiny
616bugs (but in such far corners of the editor that they aren't

623nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
624some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
625the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
626checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
627default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
628shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
629is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
630there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
631when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
632on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
633and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
634things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
635
636And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
637Bye! And thanks for all the grass!
