21 GNU nano 2.7.4 "Red dress" undoes deletions in an orderly
22 manner again (bug was introduced in previous version),
23 sets the preferred x position for vertical movements
24 more consistently, avoids some scrolling problems in
25 softwrap mode, installs the Info manual also when your
26 system lacks 'makeinfo', and corrects the behavior of
27 the beginning-of-word anchor (\<) in regex searches.

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

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

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

81 GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
82 selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
83 Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
84 terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
85 the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
86 but it's time to get it out there.
87
88 With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
89 we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,
90 back to a healthy diet of fresh green free grass.

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

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

125
126 nano 2.6.1 "Stampede" is chiefly a translation update, but also
127 adds one little feature (the ability to use negative numbers
128 with Go To Line: -1 meaning the first line from the bottom),
129 includes syntax highlighting for Rust, and fixes three tiny
130 bugs (but in such far corners of the editor that they aren't
131 even worth mentioning).

137 nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
138 some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
139 the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
140 checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
141 default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
142 shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
143 is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
144 there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
145 when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
146 on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
147 and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
148 things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
149
150 And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
151 Bye! And thanks for all the grass!
