./editors/nano, Small and friendly text editor (a free replacement for Pico)

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.7.5, Package name: nano-2.7.5, Maintainer: wiedi

GNU `nano' is a small and friendly text editor. Besides basic text
editing, `nano' offers many extra features like an interactive search
and replace, goto line number, auto-indentation, feature toggles,
internationalization support, and filename tab completion.

The original goal for `nano' was a complete bug-for-bug compatible
emulation of Pico, but consistency is now a slightly higher priority.

Nano does not have the restrictive license problems of Pico.

Log message:
GNU nano 2.7.5 "Nijntje" can properly search and replace
the \B and \b regex anchors, correctly repaints things
when multiline regexes with identical start and end are
involved, fixes a crash with zero-length regex matches,
does replacements at the edges of a marked region right,
no longer hides double-width characters at the head of
softwrapped rows, displays at most three warnings at
startup, and documents the ability to read a file from
standard input.  Come tickle my ears.

Update editors/nano to 2.7.4

2017.01.10 - GNU nano 2.7.4 "Red dress" undoes deletions in an orderly
		manner again (bug was introduced in previous version),
		sets the preferred x position for vertical movements
		more consistently, avoids some scrolling problems in
		softwrap mode, installs the Info manual also when your
		system lacks 'makeinfo', and corrects the behavior of
		the beginning-of-word anchor (\<) in regex searches.

2016.12.28 - GNU nano 2.7.3 "Ontbijtkoek" wipes away a handful of bugs:
		your editor is now able to handle filenames that contain
		newlines, avoids a brief flash of color when switching
		between buffers that are governed by different syntaxes,
		makes the Shift+Ctrl+Arrow keys select text again on a
		Linux console, is more resistant against malformations
		in the positionlog file, and does not crash when ^C is
		typed on systems where it produces the code KEY_CANCEL.
		Oh, and it no longer mistakenly warns about editing an
		unlocked file just after saving a new one.  That's it.
		Tastes great with thick butter.

Update editors/nano to 2.7.2

2016.12.12 - GNU nano 2.7.2 "Shemesh! Shemesh!" brings another feature:
		the ability to complete with one keystroke (^] by default)
		a fragment of a word to a full word existing elsewhere in
		the current buffer.  Besides, this release fixes two bugs
		related to using line numbers in softwrap mode, allows to
		use the PageUp and PageDown keys together with Shift on
		VTE-based terminals, stops the help lines from flickering
		during interactive replacing, makes a "set fill" override
		an earlier "set nowrap", properly restores the selected
		region after an external spell check, and improves a few
		other tidbits.  If you should find any more bugs, please
		run 'man nano | grep bugs' and report them there.

Update editors/nano to 2.7.1

2016.10.29 - GNU nano 2.7.1 "Leuven" adds an often-asked-for feature: the
		ability to display line numbers beside the text.  This can
		be activated with -l or --linenumbers on the command line,
		or with 'set linenumbers' in your nanorc, or toggled with
		M-#.  The coloring of these numbers can be chosen via the
		option 'set numbercolor'.  This release furthermore fixes
		some bugs with scrolling in softwrap mode, is more strict
		in the parsing of key rebindings, and marks a new buffer
		as modified when the output of a command (^R ^X) has been
		read into it.  Come and check it out!

2016.09.01 - GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
		selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
		Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
		terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
		the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces.  Not much,
		but it's time to get it out there.

2016.08.10 - nano 2.6.3 "Marika" makes the Ctrl+Arrow keys work also on
		a Linux virtual console, takes as verbatim only the very
		first keystroke after M-V, removes any lock files that it
		holds when dying, doesn't abort when a word contains digits
		(when using the default speller), fixes a small sorting bug
		in the file browser, makes searching case-insensitively in
		a UTF-8 locale a little faster, and doesn't enter invalid
		bytes when holding down both Alt keys.  Santé!

2016.07.28 - nano 2.6.2 "Le vent nous portera" adds two new features: the
		keystrokes Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down for jumping between blocks
		of text, and the option 'wordchars' for specifying which
		characters (beside alphanumeric ones) should be considered
		word-forming.  Further, it provides feedback during Unicode
		input (M-V followed by a six-digit hexadecimal number which
		must start with 0 or 10), avoids a crash when resizing the
		window during Verbatim input, doesn't drop a keystroke after
		having been suspended, and replaces the	beginning-of-line
		anchor (^) just once per line.  There are also several tiny
		improvements in screen rendering and key handling.  Come get
		your hair tousled!

2016.06.27 - nano 2.6.1 "Stampede" is chiefly a translation update, \ 
but also
		adds one little feature (the ability to use negative numbers
		with Go To Line: -1 meaning the first line from the bottom),
		includes syntax highlighting for Rust, and fixes three tiny
		bugs (but in such far corners of the editor that they aren't
		even worth mentioning).

Update editors/nano to 2.6.0

2016.06.17 - nano 2.6.0 "Rubicon" fixes more than fifty little bugs -- and
		some of them not so little.  It improves moving about in
		the file browser, corrects failings of the internal spell
		checker, adds a new feature (comment/uncomment lines, with
		default binding M-3), makes some error messages clearer,
		shows more of a file when positionlog is used and the cursor
		is near the end, displays all error messages at startup if
		there are multiple ones, does not misinterpret keystrokes
		when typing very fast, is less eager to trim the filename
		on narrow terminals, speeds up case-insensitive searches,
		and allows to abort re-searches.  Among bunches of other
		things.  It is worth the trouble to upgrade.

Update editors/nano to 2.5.3

2016.02.25 - GNU nano 2.5.3 "Alphys" is released.  This release
		contains fixes for bugs like: stray cursor positioning
		errors, many many memory leaks including file reading,
		using the file browser, searching for multi-byte characters,
		history completion, and many other places.
			New features include the ability to trim whitespace
		from the ends of lines when justifying text, see nanorc(5)
		option justifytrim for deets.  As always thank you for your
		continued support of nano, and keep sparing.

Update nano to 2.5.2

2016.02.12 - GNU nano 2.5.2 is carrying too many dogs.  This release includes
		several fixes for various memory leaks, position history
		size growth, and a long standing issue with using
		nano under sudo creating root-owned files.  There are also
		the usual bevy of documentation and other miscellaneous
		fixes and touch ups.  Upgrade today while supplies last,
		operators are standing by!

2016.01.11 - GNU nano 2.5.1 "Salzburg" is released.  It includes fixes
		for a syntax-highlighting bug and a positionlog bug, it
		disables a time-eating multiline regex in the C syntax,
		and it adds an escape hatch to the WriteOut menu when
		--tempfile is used: the discardbuffer command, ^Q.  It
		also has translation updates for fifteen languages, and
		a small fix in the softwrap code.  So... you are heartily
		invited to upgrade.  Enjoy!
