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

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

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

69 GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
70 selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
71 Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
72 terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
73 the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
74 but it's time to get it out there.
75
76 With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
77 we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,
78 back to a healthy diet of fresh green free grass.

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

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

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

124
125 nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
126 some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
127 the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
128 checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
129 default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
130 shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
131 is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
132 there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
133 when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
134 on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
135 and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
136 things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
137
138 And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
139 Bye! And thanks for all the grass!
