GNU nano 5.2 was released
     posted by bens, Tue 25 Aug 2020 06:50:50 AM UTC - 0 replies

Version 5.0 brought: direct access to the "Execute Command" prompt, the ability to place and jump to anchors, the --indicator option for showing a kind of scrollbar, nine new color names plus the "italic" attribute, and several major internal changes.  Versions 5.1 and 5.2 then fixed the bugs that these changes had caused along the way.

GNU nano 4.0 was released
     posted by bens, Wed 27 Mar 2019 06:36:29 PM UTC - 0 replies

This version breaks with the close compatibility with Pico: nano no longer hard-wraps the current line by default when it becomes overlong, and uses smooth scrolling by default, plus two other minor changes.  Further, in 3.0 indenting and unindenting became undoable, and now, with 4.0, also justifications have become undoable (to any depth), making that all of the user's actions are now undoable and redoable (with the M-U and M-E keystrokes).

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
     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.
