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

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

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

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