GNU nano 2.9.7 was released
     posted by bens, Mon 21 May 2018 10:36:33 AM UTC - 0 replies

Accumulated changes over the last five releases include: the ability to bind a key to a string (text and/or escape sequences), a default color of bright white on red for error messages, an improvement to the way the Scroll-Up and Scroll-Down commands work, and the new --afterends option to make Ctrl+Right (next word) stop at the end of a word instead of at the beginning. Check it out.

GNU nano 2.9.2 was released

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.

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.
