Update editors/nano to 2.8.1
2017.04.12 - GNU nano 2.8.1 "Ellert" fixes build failures on MacOS and
on musl, fixes scrolling problems in softwrap mode when
double-width characters on row boundaries are involved,
shows double-width characters as ">" and "<" when split
across two rows, moves the cursor more predictably (at
the cost of sometimes putting it on the second "half"
of a character), avoids creating lines that consist of
only blanks when using autoindent, makes ^Home and ^End
go to the start and end of the file (on terminals that
support those keystrokes), places the cursor better when
linting, lets the linter ask only once whether to open
an included file, and adds bindings for ^Up and ^Down
in the file browser. Don't sit on your hands.
2017.03.31 - GNU nano 2.8.0 "Axat" makes it easier to move around in
softwrapped lines: the Up and Down keys now step from
visual row to visual row instead of jumping between
logical lines, and the Home and End keys now move to
the start and end of a row, and only when already
there, then to the start and end of the logical line.
Furthermore, the screen can now scroll per row instead
of always per logical line. On an entirely different
front: nano now makes use of gnulib, to make it build
on more platforms. In short: there were many internal
changes, not many user-visible ones (apart from the
new softwrap navigation). The conversion to gnulib
was done by Mike Frysinger, the softwrap overhaul by

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, \
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.
