    Release Notes: This release includes major enhancements such as the expansion of the word count to a word/line/character count, more efficient screen updates, the reinclusion of a -K/--rebindkeypad option to work around numeric keypad problems, and massive improvements to the color code such as handling of unspecified foreground colors. There were also fixes for the history code, potential problems on 64-bit platforms, long-standing display problems, erroneous hangups occurring while waiting for input, and a segfault when displaying certain long lines.

      Release Notes: This release contains several new features. You can now move to a specified column number as well as line number within a file. File backups that are saved in a backup directory are now unique. Search and replace history work more consistently. Meta-D at the edit window gives you a word count. There's an option to convert typed tabs to spaces. There are also fixes for problems with screen updates, UTF-8 display, and flow control. A segfault when displaying some lines ending with tabs was fixed. Handling of constant cursor position display was improved. Color parsing in the rcfile was improved.

        Release Notes: This release included fixes for segfault that occurred during filename completion, justify on systems without regex.h, hangs when the input stream goes away, and for scrolling beyond COLS. Some new keyboard sequences were included.

          Release Notes: This release mostly contains bugfixes for the new code in 1.3.6. nano builds with debug support again. Going into help at the "Read File" prompt no longer kicks you out of the prompt after you exit help. Paragraph searching no longer skips over some one-line paragraphs. The titlebar no longer cuts off some UTF-8 strings too early. The help text is now wrapped as it was in nano 1.2.x, taking UTF-8 support into account. New features include a configure option to explicitly turn detection of UTF-8 support on or off and sample regexes for C++ as well as C.

            Release Notes: This release finally includes the long-awaited support for UTF-8. It also includes the ability to insert UTF-8 characters using verbatim input, the ability to delete all text from the cursor position to the end of the file via ^W^X, I/O improvements so that pasted text displays faster, status bar prompt improvements to make more edit window shortcuts work in it, and a new option to use the second line of the screen as part of the edit window. A fix for a long-standing bug where the program would keep running if the terminal it was in died unexpectedly was included.

              Release Notes: In this release, replacing of only the marked text has been implemented, smooth scrolling is improved so that it applies everywhere instead of just to the movement keys, multiple +LINE arguments can now be used with multiple files on the command line, the format a file is saved in is now autodetected when it is read in, and toggling works both ways between the "Read File"/"Execute Command" prompts and the "Search"/"Go to Line" prompts. Cross-compilation should now work. The "tabsize" nanorc option and mouse clicks on shortcuts both work again, and spell checking of only marked text now works properly.

                Release Notes: Quoted justify now works properly on systems without regex.h, full justify no longer segfaults when used on a file with no paragraphs, previous paragraph searching works properly again, tab completion is properly disabled when needed in restricted mode, and Ctrl-C is no longer disabled after using the alternate spell checker. New features include sample regexes for patch files and improved C file regexes, and support for strings greater than 1023 characters and/or containing nulls in .nano_history. Additionally, the full justify keystroke has been changed to match current Pico.

                  Release Notes: New features include a restricted mode that provides better security than just setting an operating directory, the ability to justify the entire file at once, support for a "smart" home key that can leap from the beginning of text on a line to the true beginning of the line (or the reverse) in one stroke, support for specifying an alternative spell checker in $SPELL, the ability to specify the characters used to display spaces and tabs so that they can easily be told apart, and the ability to specify the characters marking the ends of sentences as used in justification.

                    Release Notes: This release contains fixes for the lack of error reporting when opening a file, segfaults when backgrounding nano at start, file truncation when resizing the editor window, and memory corruption in the status bar routines. Translation updates and a port to the Tandem NonStop kernel were also included.

                      Release Notes: This release features fixes for the input routines, a reorganized shortcut list for the help browser, minor Pico compatibility improvements for the file browser, and fixes for replacing and highlighting certain regular expressions. It also allows searching without prompting to work in view mode, added support for systems needing glib 2.x, updated the .spec file for the 1.3 branch, prompts you first when you try to save a file under a different name, and added a new verbatim input mode that acts as ^V does under vi, but with additional Pico compatibility.
