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

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

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

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

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

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