GNU nano 2.9.2 was released
     posted by bens, Sun 07 Jan 2018 11:09:02 AM UTC - 0 replies

The most important change in this version is that now you can use <Tab> to indent a marked region and <Shift+Tab> to unindent it. Furthermore, with the option 'set trimblanks' in your nanorc, nano will now snip those pesky trailing spaces when automatic hard-wrapping occurs (when using the --fill option, for example). Apart from those things, there are several small fixes and improvements. Recommended upgrade.

GNU nano 2.8.6 was released

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.

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.
