196GNU nano 3.2 "Het kromme hout" changes the default binding

198always be used, and changes (when linting) the text in the

200mode more obvious. It also adds a bindable 'zap' function
201for deleting a line or marked region without changing the
67c6d961 202cutbuffer, adds --zap to bind the &lt;Del&gt; and &lt;Backspace&gt;
eb64fc57 203keys to the zap function when something is marked, and
67c6d961 204hard-binds &lt;Alt+Del&gt; to 'zap'. Furthermore, it shows the
eb64fc57

205cursor also in the help viewer (when --showcursor is used),
206renames the bindable functions 'prevhistory' to 'older' and
207'nexthistory' to 'newer' (update your nanorcs when needed),
208reads the nanorc files also in restricted mode to allow
209customization by the user (if this should not be allowed,
210use --ignorercfiles in addition to --restricted), allows
211in view mode to open also other files (if this should not
212be allowed, use --restricted in addition to --view), makes
213resizes respect a relative --fill again, no longer binds
214F13...F15 by default, properly re-highlights a misspelled
215word after invoking help in the internal spell checker,

298GNU nano 2.9.5 "Ki&scaron;a pada" changes the way the Scroll-Up
299and Scroll-Down commands work (M-- and M-+): instead of
300keeping the cursor in the same screen position they now
301keep the cursor in the same text position (if possible).
302This version further adds a new color name, "normal",
303which gives the default foreground or background color,
304which is useful when you want to undo some overzealous
305painting by earlier syntax regexes. Bug fixes include:
306a segfault when trying to insert a file in restricted
307mode, the reading in of a new file being "undoable", a
308slight miswrapping of help texts when --linenumbers was
309used, and the shell syntax coloring the word "tar" in

406scroll three pages on a roll of the mouse wheel, binds
407Alt+Up and Alt+Down to findprevious and findnext, and
408fixes some hard-to-describe issues with softwrapping
409and boundary-crossing tabs. Enjoy.

2031a280 415GNU nano 2.8.6 "Kekul&eacute;" offers a new feature: the ability
e3e1bf2d
BS
416to do softwrapping between words -- at whitespace --
417instead of always at the edge of the screen. This can
418be activated with -a or --atblanks or 'set atblanks'
419together with the softwrap option. This release further
420fixes a handful of rare display glitches, fixes a build
421failure on AIX, harmonizes the quoting rules in the rc
422files, and renames the option 'cut' to 'cutfromcursor'
423(please update your nanorc files before 2020).

429GNU nano 2.8.5 "Farouche" avoids a crash when waking from
430a suspension that was induced from the outside, allows
431negative line and column numbers on the command line,
432avoids some flickering when resizing the screen while
433in the file browser, opens files in the order they were
434mentioned on the command line, and does not pretend to
435have woken from suspension when receiving a SIGCONT.

459the ^G help texts searchable with ^W. Apart from that,
460it fixes a crash when resizing the window in the middle
461of verbatim input, avoids an unlikely crash when used
462without UTF-8 support in some locales, avoids redrawing
463the screen twice when switching between buffers while
464line numbers are active, and works around a coloring
465bug on musl. Plus tweaks to the documentation; plus
466translation updates for fifteen languages.

472GNU nano 2.8.1 "Ellert" fixes build failures on MacOS and
473on musl, fixes scrolling problems in softwrap mode when

0a09732f 475shows double-width characters as "&gt;" and "&lt;" when split
f2eff274
BS
476across two rows, moves the cursor more predictably (at
477the cost of sometimes putting it on the second "half"
478of a character), avoids creating lines that consist of
479only blanks when using autoindent, makes ^Home and ^End
480go to the start and end of the file (on terminals that
481support those keystrokes), places the cursor better when
482linting, lets the linter ask only once whether to open
483an included file, and adds bindings for ^Up and ^Down
484in the file browser. Don't sit on your hands.

490GNU nano 2.8.0 "Axat" makes it easier to move around in
491softwrapped lines: the Up and Down keys now step from
492visual row to visual row instead of jumping between
493logical lines, and the Home and End keys now move to
494the start and end of a row, and only when already
495there, then to the start and end of the logical line.
496Furthermore, the screen can now scroll per row instead
497of always per logical line. On an entirely different
498front: nano now makes use of gnulib, to make it build
499on more platforms. In short: there were many internal
500changes, not many user-visible ones (apart form the
501new softwrap navigation). The conversion to gnulib
502was done by Mike Frysinger, the softwrap overhaul by
503David Ramsey.

513does replacements at the edges of a marked region right,
514no longer hides double-width characters at the head of
515softwrapped rows, displays at most three warnings at
516startup, and documents the ability to read a file from
517standard input. Come tickle my ears.

535GNU nano 2.7.3 "Ontbijtkoek" wipes away a handful of bugs:
536your editor is now able to handle filenames that contain
537newlines, avoids a brief flash of color when switching
538between buffers that are governed by different syntaxes,
539makes the Shift+Ctrl+Arrow keys select text again on a
540Linux console, is more resistant against malformations
541in the positionlog file, and does not crash when ^C is
542typed on systems where it produces the code KEY_CANCEL.
543Oh, and it no longer mistakenly warns about editing an
544unlocked file just after saving a new one. That's it.
545Tastes great with thick butter.

551GNU nano 2.7.2 "Shemesh! Shemesh!" brings another feature:
552the ability to complete with one keystroke (^] by default)
553a fragment of a word to a full word existing elsewhere in
554the current buffer. Besides, this release fixes two bugs
555related to using line numbers in softwrap mode, allows to
556use the PageUp and PageDown keys together with Shift on
557VTE-based terminals, stops the help lines from flickering
558during interactive replacing, makes a 'set fill' override
559an earlier 'set nowrap', properly restores the selected
560region after an external spell check, and improves a few
561other tidbits. If you should find any more bugs, please
562run 'man nano | grep bugs' and report them there.

568GNU nano 2.7.1 "Leuven" adds an often-asked-for feature: the
569ability to display line numbers beside the text. This can
570be activated with -l or --linenumbers on the command line,
571or with 'set linenumbers' in your nanorc, or toggled with
572M-#. The coloring of these numbers can be chosen via the
573option 'set numbercolor'. This release furthermore fixes
574some bugs with scrolling in softwrap mode, is more strict
575in the parsing of key rebindings, and marks a new buffer
576as modified when the output of a command (^R ^X) has been
577read into it. Come and check it out!

583GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
584selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
585Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
586terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
587the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
588but it's time to get it out there.
589
590With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
591we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,

599a Linux virtual console, takes as verbatim only the very
600first keystroke after M-V, removes any lock files that it
601holds when dying, doesn't abort when a word contains digits
602(when using the default speller), fixes a small sorting bug
603in the file browser, makes searching case-insensitively in
604a UTF-8 locale a little faster, and doesn't enter invalid
0fe6854f 605bytes when holding down both Alt keys. Sant&eacute;!

612keystrokes Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down for jumping between blocks
613of text, and the option 'wordchars' for specifying which
614characters (beside alphanumeric ones) should be considered
615word-forming. Further, it provides feedback during Unicode
616input (M-V followed by a six-digit hexadecimal number which
617must start with 0 or 10), avoids a crash when resizing the
618window during Verbatim input, doesn't drop a keystroke after
619having been suspended, and replaces the beginning-of-line
620anchor (^) just once per line. There are also several tiny
621improvements in screen rendering and key handling.

639nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
640some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
641the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
642checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
643default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
644shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
645is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
646there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
647when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
648on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
649and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
650things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
651
652And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
