189GNU nano 3.2 "Het kromme hout" changes the default binding

191always be used, and changes (when linting) the text in the

193mode more obvious. It also adds a bindable 'zap' function

67c6d961 195cutbuffer, adds --zap to bind the &lt;Del&gt; and &lt;Backspace&gt;
eb64fc57 196keys to the zap function when something is marked, and

198cursor also in the help viewer (when --showcursor is used),
199renames the bindable functions 'prevhistory' to 'older' and
200'nexthistory' to 'newer' (update your nanorcs when needed),
201reads the nanorc files also in restricted mode to allow
202customization by the user (if this should not be allowed,
203use --ignorercfiles in addition to --restricted), allows

294keep the cursor in the same text position (if possible).
295This version further adds a new color name, "normal",
296which gives the default foreground or background color,
297which is useful when you want to undo some overzealous
298painting by earlier syntax regexes. Bug fixes include:
299a segfault when trying to insert a file in restricted

301slight miswrapping of help texts when --linenumbers was

410instead of always at the edge of the screen. This can
411be activated with -a or --atblanks or 'set atblanks'
412together with the softwrap option. This release further
413fixes a handful of rare display glitches, fixes a build
414failure on AIX, harmonizes the quoting rules in the rc
415files, and renames the option 'cut' to 'cutfromcursor'
416(please update your nanorc files before 2020).

422GNU nano 2.8.5 "Farouche" avoids a crash when waking from
423a suspension that was induced from the outside, allows
424negative line and column numbers on the command line,
425avoids some flickering when resizing the screen while
426in the file browser, opens files in the order they were
427mentioned on the command line, and does not pretend to
428have woken from suspension when receiving a SIGCONT.

451GNU nano 2.8.2 "Krats" adds another new feature: it makes
452the ^G help texts searchable with ^W. Apart from that,
453it fixes a crash when resizing the window in the middle
454of verbatim input, avoids an unlikely crash when used
455without UTF-8 support in some locales, avoids redrawing
456the screen twice when switching between buffers while
457line numbers are active, and works around a coloring
458bug on musl. Plus tweaks to the documentation; plus
459translation updates for fifteen languages.

469across two rows, moves the cursor more predictably (at
470the cost of sometimes putting it on the second "half"
471of a character), avoids creating lines that consist of
472only blanks when using autoindent, makes ^Home and ^End
473go to the start and end of the file (on terminals that
474support those keystrokes), places the cursor better when
475linting, lets the linter ask only once whether to open
476an included file, and adds bindings for ^Up and ^Down
477in the file browser. Don't sit on your hands.

483GNU nano 2.8.0 "Axat" makes it easier to move around in
484softwrapped lines: the Up and Down keys now step from
485visual row to visual row instead of jumping between
486logical lines, and the Home and End keys now move to
487the start and end of a row, and only when already
488there, then to the start and end of the logical line.
489Furthermore, the screen can now scroll per row instead
490of always per logical line. On an entirely different
491front: nano now makes use of gnulib, to make it build
492on more platforms. In short: there were many internal
493changes, not many user-visible ones (apart form the
494new softwrap navigation). The conversion to gnulib
495was done by Mike Frysinger, the softwrap overhaul by
496David Ramsey.

507no longer hides double-width characters at the head of

528GNU nano 2.7.3 "Ontbijtkoek" wipes away a handful of bugs:
529your editor is now able to handle filenames that contain
530newlines, avoids a brief flash of color when switching
531between buffers that are governed by different syntaxes,
532makes the Shift+Ctrl+Arrow keys select text again on a
533Linux console, is more resistant against malformations
534in the positionlog file, and does not crash when ^C is
535typed on systems where it produces the code KEY_CANCEL.
536Oh, and it no longer mistakenly warns about editing an
537unlocked file just after saving a new one. That's it.
538Tastes great with thick butter.

544GNU nano 2.7.2 "Shemesh! Shemesh!" brings another feature:
545the ability to complete with one keystroke (^] by default)
546a fragment of a word to a full word existing elsewhere in
547the current buffer. Besides, this release fixes two bugs
548related to using line numbers in softwrap mode, allows to
549use the PageUp and PageDown keys together with Shift on
550VTE-based terminals, stops the help lines from flickering
551during interactive replacing, makes a 'set fill' override
552an earlier 'set nowrap', properly restores the selected
553region after an external spell check, and improves a few
554other tidbits. If you should find any more bugs, please
555run 'man nano | grep bugs' and report them there.

561GNU nano 2.7.1 "Leuven" adds an often-asked-for feature: the
562ability to display line numbers beside the text. This can
563be activated with -l or --linenumbers on the command line,
564or with 'set linenumbers' in your nanorc, or toggled with
565M-#. The coloring of these numbers can be chosen via the
566option 'set numbercolor'. This release furthermore fixes
567some bugs with scrolling in softwrap mode, is more strict
568in the parsing of key rebindings, and marks a new buffer
569as modified when the output of a command (^R ^X) has been
570read into it. Come and check it out!

576GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
577selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
578Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
579terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
580the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
581but it's time to get it out there.
582
583With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
584we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,

605keystrokes Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down for jumping between blocks
606of text, and the option 'wordchars' for specifying which
607characters (beside alphanumeric ones) should be considered
608word-forming. Further, it provides feedback during Unicode
609input (M-V followed by a six-digit hexadecimal number which
610must start with 0 or 10), avoids a crash when resizing the
611window during Verbatim input, doesn't drop a keystroke after
612having been suspended, and replaces the beginning-of-line
613anchor (^) just once per line. There are also several tiny
614improvements in screen rendering and key handling.

632nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
633some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
634the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
635checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
636default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
637shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
638is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
639there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
640when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
641on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
642and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
643things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
