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

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.8.7, Package name: nano-2.8.7, 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.

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.

2017.05.18 - GNU nano 2.8.3 "Hirsch" fixes a misplacement of the spotlight
		during interactive replacing, avoids build failures on AIX
		and Solaris, fixes a crash on Solaris, speeds up backwards
		searching, improves PHP syntax highlighting, and no longer
		asks “save anyway?” when the user ^Q discards the buffer.

Update nano to 2.8.2

2017.05.04 - GNU nano 2.8.2 "Krats" adds another new feature: it makes
		the ^G help texts searchable with ^W.  Apart from that,
		it fixes a crash when resizing the window in the middle
		of verbatim input, avoids an unlikely crash when used
		without UTF-8 support in some locales, avoids redrawing
		the screen twice when switching between buffers while
		line numbers are active, and works around a coloring
		bug on musl.  Plus tweaks to the documentation; plus
		translation updates for fifteen languages.

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
		David Ramsey.

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.
