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

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

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

62 nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
63 some of them not so little. It improves moving about in
64 the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
65 checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
66 default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
67 shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
68 is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
69 there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
70 when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
71 on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
72 and allows to abort re-searches. Among bunches of other
73 things. It is worth the trouble to upgrade.

75 And, with this release, we take leave of the herd...
76 Bye! And thanks for all the grass!
