GNU nano 2.8.6 was released
     posted by bens, Sun 23 Jul 2017 03:23:59 PM UTC - 0 replies

This version brings the ability to do softwrapping at whitespace (via the option --atblanks on the command line or 'set atblanks' in your nanorc, together with the softwrap option). Apart from that new feature, just a few tiny fixes.

GNU nano 2.8.2 was released

This version makes the built-in help texts searchable (with ^W). This is useful chiefly in the main help text -- when the user forgot how to scroll without moving the cursor, for example, or how to insert a keystoke verbatim. Apart from that, this release fixes a few small or unlikely bugs.

GNU nano 2.8.0 was released
     posted by bens, Sun 02 Apr 2017 10:54:55 AM UTC - 0 replies

This version of nano changes the way softwrap works: the <Up> and <Down> cursor keys now move through visual rows instead of jumping between logical lines. And nano now makes use of gnulib, to get rid of some custom shims and to avoid the need for new ones. The use of gnulib has increased the size of nano's tarball by some thirty percent, but... in lines of code this is the smallest nano since 2.2.0.

GNU nano 2.7.2 was released
     posted by bens, Wed 14 Dec 2016 05:12:58 PM UTC - 0 replies

After 2.7.1 bringing line numbers, this version brings a word completion feature (bound to Ctrl+] by default) and also fixes a few small bugs. So... there is no need to upgrade, but it won't hurt.
