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

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.9.4, Package name: nano-2.9.4, 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.

nano: update to 2.9.4

2018.03.08 - GNU nano 2.9.4 "Isabel" allows binding a key to a string
             (any piece of text and/or commands), permits customizing
             the color of error messages with 'set errorcolor', colors
             those error messages by default in bright white on red,
             makes <Enter> at the bottom of the screen scroll just one
             row when --smooth is used, does not fail when redoing a
             file insertion, and cancels a Shift-selection when any
             cursor key is pressed without Shift even when the cursor
             cannot move.  Further, it treats tabs fully the same as
             spaces when doing automatic hard-wrapping, allows syntax
             names to be unquoted, and removes two deprecated options
             and six deprecated bindable function names.

nano: updated to 2.9.3

2018.01.29 - GNU nano 2.9.3 "Córdoba" fixes a segfault with trimblanks
             that could occur when a typed space caused the word after
             it to be pushed to the next line.  It further makes macros
             work also when your keyboard still emits escape sequences,
             adds the options -M and --trimblanks for the command line,
             recognizes key combos with Shift on a few more terminals,
             no longer shows dots in certain prompt texts when visible
             witespace is turned on, fixes two corner cases when doing
             replacements in a marked region, allows to open a named
             pipe again when using --noread, and accurately detects
             a needed color change when a line contains a start match
             but not a corresponding end match any more.  Plus some
             other small fry.

Update to 2.9.2

Upstream changes:
2018 January 2

GNU nano 2.9.2 "Pussy Riot" correctly displays the Modified
state when undoing/redoing (also when the file was saved
somewhere midway), improves the undoing of an automatic
linefeed at EOF, fixes a build issue on the BSDs, shows
the cursor again when compiled with --withslang, renames
the option 'justifytrim' to 'trimblanks' because it will
now snip trailing whitespace also while you are typing
(and hard-wrapping is enabled), continues pushing words
to the next line much longer (when hard-wrapping), makes
 and  indent and unindent a marked region,
allows unindenting when not all lines are indented, lets a
region marked with Shift persist when indenting/unindenting
or commenting/uncommenting it, and in those cases excludes
the last line of the region when it is not visibly marked
(which makes for a more intuitive behavior).

nano: updated to 2.9.0

2017.11.18 - GNU nano 2.9.0 "Eta" introduces the ability to record and
		replay keystrokes (M-: to start and stop recording, M-;
		to play the macro back), makes ^Q and ^S do something
		useful by default (^Q starts a backward search, and ^S
		saves the current file), changes ^W to start always a
		forward search, shows the number of open buffers (when
		more than one) in the title bar, no longer asks to press
		Enter when there are errors in an rc file, retires the
		options '--quiet' and 'set quiet' and 'set backwards',
		makes indenting and unindenting undoable, will look in
		$XDG_CONFIG_HOME for a nanorc file and in $XDG_DATA_HOME
		for the history files, adds a history stack for executed
		commands (^R^X), does not overwrite the position-history
		file of another nano, and fixes a score of tiny bugs.

Update nano to 2.8.7

2017.08.27 - GNU nano 2.8.7 "Fragrance" fixes a lockup when tabs are
		wider than the screen, makes indenting + unindenting
		more predictable by retaining relative indentations,
		allows pasting (^U) at a prompt, allows triple quotes
		in Python to not be followed by a character, does not
		scroll three pages on a roll of the mouse wheel, binds
		Alt+Up and Alt+Down to findprevious and findnext, and
		fixes some hard-to-describe issues with softwrapping
		and boundary-crossing tabs.  Enjoy.

Update to 2.8.6

Upstream changes:
2017 July 21

GNU nano 2.8.6 "Kekulé" offers a new feature: the ability
to do softwrapping between words -- at whitespace --
instead of always at the edge of the screen.  This can
be activated with -a or --atblanks or 'set atblanks'
together with the softwrap option.  This release further
fixes a handful of rare display glitches, fixes a build
failure on AIX, harmonizes the quoting rules in the rc
files, and renames the option 'cut' to 'cutfromcursor'
(please update your nanorc files before 2020).

Update nano to 2.8.5

2017.06.25 - GNU nano 2.8.5 "Farouche" avoids a crash when waking from
		a suspension that was induced from the outside, allows
		negative line and column numbers on the command line,
		avoids some flickering when resizing the screen while
		in the file browser, opens files in the order they were
		mentioned on the command line, and does not pretend to
		have woken from suspension when receiving a SIGCONT.
