21GNU nano 2.7.1 "Leuven" adds an often-asked-for feature: the
22ability to display line numbers beside the text. This can
23be activated with -l or --linenumbers on the command line,
24or with 'set linenumbers' in your nanorc, or toggled with
25M-#. The coloring of these numbers can be chosen via the
26option 'set numbercolor'. This release furthermore fixes
27some bugs with scrolling in softwrap mode, is more strict
28in the parsing of key rebindings, and marks a new buffer
29as modified when the output of a command (^R ^X) has been
30read into it. Come and check it out!

36GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
37selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
38Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
39terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
40the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
41but it's time to get it out there.
42
43With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
44we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,
45back to a healthy diet of fresh green free grass.

51nano 2.6.3 "Marika" makes the Ctrl+Arrow keys work also on
52a Linux virtual console, takes as verbatim only the very
53first keystroke after M-V, removes any lock files that it
54holds when dying, doesn't abort when a word contains digits
55(when using the default speller), fixes a small sorting bug
56in the file browser, makes searching case-insensitively in
57a UTF-8 locale a little faster, and doesn't enter invalid
58bytes when holding down both Alt keys. Santé!

64nano 2.6.2 "Le vent nous portera" adds two new features: the
65keystrokes Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down for jumping between blocks
66of text, and the option 'wordchars' for specifying which
67characters (beside alphanumeric ones) should be considered
68word-forming. Further, it provides feedback during Unicode
69input (M-V followed by a six-digit hexadecimal number which
70must start with 0 or 10), avoids a crash when resizing the
71window during Verbatim input, doesn't drop a keystroke after
72having been suspended, and replaces the beginning-of-line
73anchor (^) just once per line. There are also several tiny
74improvements in screen rendering and key handling.
75Come get your hair tousled!

81nano 2.6.1 "Stampede" is chiefly a translation update, but also
82adds one little feature (the ability to use negative numbers
83with Go To Line: -1 meaning the first line from the bottom),
84includes syntax highlighting for Rust, and fixes three tiny
85bugs (but in such far corners of the editor that they aren't
86even worth mentioning).

92nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
93some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
94the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
95checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
96default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
97shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
98is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
99there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
100when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
101on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
102and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
103things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
104
105And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
106Bye! And thanks for all the grass!
