134
135 GNU nano 3.2 "Het kromme hout" changes the default binding
136 for the linter to M-B so that the spell checker (^T) can
137 always be used, and changes (when linting) the text in the
138 title bar and the color of the status bar to make linting
139 mode more obvious. It also adds a bindable 'zap' function
140 for deleting a line or marked region without changing the
141 cutbuffer, adds --zap to bind the &lt;Del&gt; and &lt;Backspace&gt;
142 keys to the zap function when something is marked, and
143 hard-binds &lt;Alt+Del&gt; to 'zap'. Furthermore, it shows the
144 cursor also in the help viewer (when --showcursor is used),
145 renames the bindable functions 'prevhistory' to 'older' and
146 'nexthistory' to 'newer' (update your nanorcs when needed),
147 reads the nanorc files also in restricted mode to allow
148 customization by the user (if this should not be allowed,
149 use --ignorercfiles in addition to --restricted), allows
150 in view mode to open also other files (if this should not
151 be allowed, use --restricted in addition to --view), makes
152 resizes respect a relative --fill again, no longer binds
153 F13...F15 by default, properly re-highlights a misspelled
154 word after invoking help in the internal spell checker,
155 and does not skip Unicode characters in string binds.

160
161 GNU nano 3.1 "Je faisais des bonds comme &ccedil;a!" fixes a
162 misbinding of ^H on some terminals and some systems,
163 does not leave stray stuff after the prompt upon exit
164 when having suspended nano while using --constantshow,
165 and does not allow to toggle to Replace in view mode.

170
171 GNU nano 3.0 "Water Flowing Underground" speeds up the
172 reading of a file by seventy percent, roughly doubles the
173 speed of handling ASCII text, changes the way words at line
174 boundaries are deleted, makes &lt;Ctrl+Delete&gt; wipe the next
175 word and &lt;Ctrl+Shift+Delete&gt; the preceding word, binds M-Q
176 to 'findprevious' by default (the Tabs-to-Spaces toggle is
177 placed on M-O, and the More-Space toggle is fully removed),
178 makes an external spell check undoable, shows the correct
179 number of lines on the status bar when opening multiple
180 files, removes the 'formatter' command, removes the
181 'searchagain' bindable function (M-W is now bound to
182 'findnext' by default), moves the No-Convert toggle to the
183 Insert menu, removes the Backup and New-Buffer toggles from
184 the main menu (they remain in the Write-Out and Insert
185 menus, respectively), is more precise in what it accepts as
186 a rebindable key name, ignores any presses of &lt;Esc&gt; before
187 a valid command keystroke, recognizes some more escape
188 sequences for modified editing-pad keys, does not hide
189 rcfile error messages on a Linux console, renames the
190 bindable functions 'copytext' to 'copy' and 'uncut' to
191 'paste', and avoids a possible hang during a Full-Justify.

196
197 GNU nano 2.9.8 "Espresso" brings the ability to filter the
198 buffer (or the marked region) through an external command
199 (^R^X and prefix the command with the pipe symbol, "|"), is
200 better at detecting and maintaining paragraphs, is able to
201 justify //-style comments, fixes a crash when the binding
202 of a key to a string lacks a closing quote, gives feedback
203 about the number of lines written also when prepending or
204 appending, and fixes a couple of bugs with the linter.

209
210 GNU nano 2.9.7 "Hvide Sande" adds the option '--afterends'
211 for making Ctrl+Right (the nextword function) stop at word
212 ends instead of beginnings, accepts multibyte letters for
213 the Yes/No/All answers, does emergency saves of changed
214 buffers in the unlikely event that nano crashes, adds the
215 until-now missing bindable function 'linenumbers', and
216 renames the toggles 'constupdate' to 'constantshow' and
217 'cuttoend' to 'cutfromcursor', for consistency with the
218 corresponding options -- adjust your nanorc files soon.

222 2018 April 27
223
224 GNU nano 2.9.6 "Gomance" fixes a crash in word completion,
225 makes --enable-altrcname work again, improves the fluidity
226 of scrolling when using the touchpad, tweaks the syntaxes
227 for shell scripts and PO files, makes a replacing session
228 go always forward by default, no longer inserts a newline
229 after an external spell check of a selected region, always
230 accepts the English Y and N (and A) at a yes-no prompt in
231 any locale, and solves a few hypothetical bugs.
232

235 2018 March 29
236
237 GNU nano 2.9.5 "Ki&scaron;a pada" changes the way the Scroll-Up
238 and Scroll-Down commands work (M-- and M-+): instead of
239 keeping the cursor in the same screen position they now
240 keep the cursor in the same text position (if possible).
241 This version further adds a new color name, "normal",
242 which gives the default foreground or background color,
243 which is useful when you want to undo some overzealous
244 painting by earlier syntax regexes. Bug fixes include:
245 a segfault when trying to insert a file in restricted
246 mode, the reading in of a new file being "undoable", a
247 slight miswrapping of help texts when --linenumbers was
248 used, and the shell syntax coloring the word "tar" in
249 file names.

252
253 2018 March 8
254
255 GNU nano 2.9.4 "Isabel" allows binding a key to a string
256 (any piece of text and/or commands), permits customizing
257 the color of error messages with 'set errorcolor', colors
258 those error messages by default in bright white on red,
259 makes &lt;Enter&gt; at the bottom of the screen scroll just one
260 row when --smooth is used, does not fail when redoing a
261 file insertion, and cancels a Shift-selection when any
262 cursor key is pressed without Shift even when the cursor
263 cannot move. Further, it treats tabs fully the same as
264 spaces when doing automatic hard-wrapping, allows syntax
265 names to be unquoted, and removes two deprecated options
266 and six deprecated bindable function names.
267
268
269
270 2018 January 29
271
272 GNU nano 2.9.3 "C&oacute;rdoba" fixes a segfault with trimblanks
273 that could occur when a typed space caused the word after
274 it to be pushed to the next line. It further makes macros
275 work also when your keyboard still emits escape sequences,
276 adds the options -M and --trimblanks for the command line,
277 recognizes key combos with Shift on a few more terminals,
278 no longer shows dots in certain prompt texts when visible
279 whitespace is turned on, fixes two corner cases when doing
280 replacements in a marked region, allows to open a named
281 pipe again when using --noread, and accurately detects
282 a needed color change when a line contains a start match
283 but not a corresponding end match any more. Plus some
284 other small fry.
285
286
287
288 2018 January 2
289
290 GNU nano 2.9.2 "Pussy Riot" correctly displays the Modified
291 state when undoing/redoing (also when the file was saved
292 somewhere midway), improves the undoing of an automatic
293 linefeed at EOF, fixes a build issue on the BSDs, shows
294 the cursor again when compiled with --withslang, renames
295 the option 'justifytrim' to 'trimblanks' because it will
296 now snip trailing whitespace also while you are typing
297 (and hard-wrapping is enabled), continues pushing words
298 to the next line much longer (when hard-wrapping), makes
299 &lt;Tab&gt; and &lt;Shift+Tab&gt; indent and unindent a marked region,
300 allows unindenting when not all lines are indented, lets a
301 region marked with Shift persist when indenting/unindenting
302 or commenting/uncommenting it, and in those cases excludes
303 the last line of the region when it is not visibly marked
304 (which makes for a more intuitive behavior).

308 2017 November 27
309
310 GNU nano 2.9.1 "Damyatta" fixes a bug where, when the mark
311 is on, ^S would overwrite the file with just the marked
312 region. This release further clears the "Modified" flag
313 when all edits are undone, adds or updates some magic
314 strings, and does not forget when the cursor was last
315 at line 1, column 1.

320
321 GNU nano 2.9.0 "Eta" introduces the ability to record and
322 replay keystrokes (M-: to start and stop recording, M-;
323 to play the macro back), makes ^Q and ^S do something
324 useful by default (^Q starts a backward search, and ^S
325 saves the current file), changes ^W to start always a
326 forward search, shows the number of open buffers (when
327 more than one) in the title bar, no longer asks to press
328 Enter when there are errors in an rc file, retires the
329 options '--quiet' and 'set quiet' and 'set backwards',
330 makes indenting and unindenting undoable, will look in
331 $XDG_CONFIG_HOME for a nanorc file and in $XDG_DATA_HOME
332 for the history files, adds a history stack for executed
333 commands (^R^X), does not overwrite the position-history
334 file of another nano, and fixes a score of tiny bugs.

338 2017 August 27
339
340 GNU nano 2.8.7 "Fragrance" fixes a lockup when tabs are
341 wider than the screen, makes indenting + unindenting
342 more predictable by retaining relative indentations,
343 allows pasting (^U) at a prompt, allows triple quotes
344 in Python to not be followed by a character, does not
345 scroll three pages on a roll of the mouse wheel, binds
346 Alt+Up and Alt+Down to findprevious and findnext, and
347 fixes some hard-to-describe issues with softwrapping
348 and boundary-crossing tabs. Enjoy.

351
352 2017 July 21
353
354 GNU nano 2.8.6 "Kekul&eacute;" offers a new feature: the ability
355 to do softwrapping between words -- at whitespace --
356 instead of always at the edge of the screen. This can
357 be activated with -a or --atblanks or 'set atblanks'
358 together with the softwrap option. This release further
359 fixes a handful of rare display glitches, fixes a build
360 failure on AIX, harmonizes the quoting rules in the rc
361 files, and renames the option 'cut' to 'cutfromcursor'
362 (please update your nanorc files before 2020).
363

365
366 2017 June 25
367
368 GNU nano 2.8.5 "Farouche" avoids a crash when waking from
369 a suspension that was induced from the outside, allows
370 negative line and column numbers on the command line,
371 avoids some flickering when resizing the screen while
372 in the file browser, opens files in the order they were
373 mentioned on the command line, and does not pretend to
374 have woken from suspension when receiving a SIGCONT.

386
387 GNU nano 2.8.3 "Hirsch" fixes a misplacement of the spotlight
388 during interactive replacing, avoids build failures on AIX
389 and Solaris, fixes a crash on Solaris, speeds up backwards
390 searching, improves PHP syntax highlighting, and no longer
391 asks "save anyway?" when the user ^Q discards the buffer.
392
393
394
395 2017 May 4
396
397 GNU nano 2.8.2 "Krats" adds another new feature: it makes
398 the ^G help texts searchable with ^W. Apart from that,
399 it fixes a crash when resizing the window in the middle
400 of verbatim input, avoids an unlikely crash when used
401 without UTF-8 support in some locales, avoids redrawing
402 the screen twice when switching between buffers while
403 line numbers are active, and works around a coloring
404 bug on musl. Plus tweaks to the documentation; plus
405 translation updates for fifteen languages.
406

408
409 2017 April 12
410
411 GNU nano 2.8.1 "Ellert" fixes build failures on MacOS and
412 on musl, fixes scrolling problems in softwrap mode when
413 double-width characters on row boundaries are involved,
414 shows double-width characters as "&gt;" and "&lt;" when split
415 across two rows, moves the cursor more predictably (at
416 the cost of sometimes putting it on the second "half"
417 of a character), avoids creating lines that consist of
418 only blanks when using autoindent, makes ^Home and ^End
419 go to the start and end of the file (on terminals that
420 support those keystrokes), places the cursor better when
421 linting, lets the linter ask only once whether to open
422 an included file, and adds bindings for ^Up and ^Down
423 in the file browser. Don't sit on your hands.
424
425
426
427 2017 March 31
428
429 GNU nano 2.8.0 "Axat" makes it easier to move around in
430 softwrapped lines: the Up and Down keys now step from
431 visual row to visual row instead of jumping between
432 logical lines, and the Home and End keys now move to
433 the start and end of a row, and only when already
434 there, then to the start and end of the logical line.
435 Furthermore, the screen can now scroll per row instead
436 of always per logical line. On an entirely different
437 front: nano now makes use of gnulib, to make it build
438 on more platforms. In short: there were many internal
439 changes, not many user-visible ones (apart form the
440 new softwrap navigation). The conversion to gnulib
441 was done by Mike Frysinger, the softwrap overhaul by
442 David Ramsey.
443

445
446 2017 February 23
447
448 GNU nano 2.7.5 "Nijntje" can properly search and replace
449 the \B and \b regex anchors, correctly repaints things
450 when multiline regexes with identical start and end are
451 involved, fixes a crash with zero-length regex matches,
452 does replacements at the edges of a marked region right,
453 no longer hides double-width characters at the head of
454 softwrapped rows, displays at most three warnings at
455 startup, and documents the ability to read a file from
456 standard input. Come tickle my ears.
457
458

460 2017 January 10
461
462 GNU nano 2.7.4 "Red dress" undoes deletions in an orderly
463 manner again (bug was introduced in previous version),
464 sets the preferred x position for vertical movements
465 more consistently, avoids some scrolling problems in
466 softwrap mode, installs the Info manual also when your
467 system lacks 'makeinfo', and corrects the behavior of
468 the beginning-of-word anchor (\&lt;) in regex searches.
469
470
471
472 2016 December 28
473
474 GNU nano 2.7.3 "Ontbijtkoek" wipes away a handful of bugs:
475 your editor is now able to handle filenames that contain
476 newlines, avoids a brief flash of color when switching
477 between buffers that are governed by different syntaxes,
478 makes the Shift+Ctrl+Arrow keys select text again on a
479 Linux console, is more resistant against malformations
480 in the positionlog file, and does not crash when ^C is
481 typed on systems where it produces the code KEY_CANCEL.
482 Oh, and it no longer mistakenly warns about editing an
483 unlocked file just after saving a new one. That's it.
484 Tastes great with thick butter.
485
486
487
488 2016 December 12
489
490 GNU nano 2.7.2 "Shemesh! Shemesh!" brings another feature:
491 the ability to complete with one keystroke (^] by default)
492 a fragment of a word to a full word existing elsewhere in
493 the current buffer. Besides, this release fixes two bugs
494 related to using line numbers in softwrap mode, allows to
495 use the PageUp and PageDown keys together with Shift on
496 VTE-based terminals, stops the help lines from flickering
497 during interactive replacing, makes a 'set fill' override
498 an earlier 'set nowrap', properly restores the selected
499 region after an external spell check, and improves a few
500 other tidbits. If you should find any more bugs, please
501 run 'man nano | grep bugs' and report them there.

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

522 GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
523 selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
524 Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
525 terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
526 the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
527 but it's time to get it out there.
528
529 With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
530 we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,
531 back to a healthy diet of fresh green free grass.

537 nano 2.6.3 "Marika" makes the Ctrl+Arrow keys work also on
538 a Linux virtual console, takes as verbatim only the very
539 first keystroke after M-V, removes any lock files that it
540 holds when dying, doesn't abort when a word contains digits
541 (when using the default speller), fixes a small sorting bug
542 in the file browser, makes searching case-insensitively in
543 a UTF-8 locale a little faster, and doesn't enter invalid
544 bytes when holding down both Alt keys. Sant&eacute;!

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

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

578 nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
579 some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
580 the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
581 checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
582 default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
583 shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
584 is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
585 there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
586 when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
587 on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
588 and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
589 things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
590
591 And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
592 Bye! And thanks for all the grass!
