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

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

53 GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
54 selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
55 Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
56 terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
57 the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces. Not much,
58 but it's time to get it out there.
59
60 With this release we return to GNU. For just a little while
61 we dreamt we were tigers. But we are back in the herd,
62 back to a healthy diet of fresh green free grass.

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

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

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

109 nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
110 some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
111 the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
112 checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
113 default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
114 shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
115 is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
116 there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
117 when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
118 on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
119 and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
120 things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.
121
122 And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
123 Bye! And thanks for all the grass!
