GNU nano is a small and friendly text editor. It aims to emulate
the Pico text editor while also offering a few enhancements.






* Thu Jun 17 2021 Andreas Stieger <>
  - GNU nano 5.8:
    * After a search, the spotlighting is dropped after 1.5 seconds
      (0.8 seconds with --quick) to avoid the idea that the text is
    * A + and a space before a filename on the command line will put
      the cursor at the end of the corresponding buffer.
    * Linter messages no longer include filename and line/column
    * Color name "grey" or "gray" can be used instead of "lightblack"
    * The color of the minibar can be chosen with 'set minicolor'.
* Thu Apr 29 2021 Andreas Stieger <>
  - GNU nano 5.7:
    * The output of --constantshow (without --minibar) is more stable
    * When opening multiple buffers and there is an error message,
      this message is shown again upon first switch to the relevant
    * The position and size of the indicator now follow actual
      lines, instead of visual lines when in softwrap mode, meaning
      that the size of the indicator can change when scrolling in
      softwrap mode
* Mon Mar 08 2021 Martin Pluskal <>
  - Fox signature sources
  - Drop no longer needed scriplets
* Wed Mar 03 2021 Andreas Stieger <>
  - GNU nano 5.6.1:
    * Search matches are properly colorized in softwrap mode too
    * Option 'highlightcolor' has been renamed to 'spotlightcolor'
* Wed Feb 24 2021 Andreas Stieger <>
  - GNU nano 5.6:
    * A search match gets highlighted (in black on yellow by
      default), in addition to placing the cursor at the start of
      the matchA. The color combination can be changed with
      'set highlightcolor'. By default the cursor is hidden until the
      next keystroke, but it can be forced on with --showcursor /
      'set showcursor'.
    * Option --markmatch / 'set markmatch' has been removed
    * Cursor position and character code are displayed in the
      minibar only when option --constantshow / 'set constantshow'
      is used, and their display can be toggled with M-C
    * The state flags are displayed in the minibar only when option
    - -stateflags / 'set stateflags' is used
* Thu Jan 14 2021 Andreas Stieger <>
  - GNU nano 5.5:
    * Option 'set minibar' to suppress the title bar and show a bar
      with basic information
    * 'set promptcolor' can configure the prompt bar
    * 'set markmatch' highlights the result of a successful search
    * AThe bindable toggle 'nowrap' has been renamed to
    * Support for Slang has been removed
* Thu Dec 31 2020 Neal Gompa <>
  - Install a useful default nanorc configuration
  - Enable useful extra definitions for syntax highlighting
* Thu Dec 03 2020 Andreas Stieger <>
  - GNU nano 5.4:
    * Moving the cursor now skips over combining characters (an
      other zero-width characters)
    * Deleting a character deletes also any succeeding zero-width
      characters but backspacing deletes just one character at a time
* Wed Oct 07 2020 Aaron Stern <>
  - GNU nano 5.3:
    * Option 'set stateflags' makes nano show the state of auto-indenting,
      the mark, hard-wrapping, macro recording, and soft-wrapping in the
      title bar. The flags take the place of "Modified", and a modified
      buffer is instead indicated by an asterisk (*) after its name.
    * Nano no longer by default tries using libmagic to determine the type
      of a file (when neither filename nor first line gave a clue), because
      in most cases it is a waste of time. It requires using the option
    - -magic or -! or 'set magic' to make nano try libmagic.
    * The color of the indicator can be changed with 'set scrollercolor'.
* Mon Aug 24 2020 Andreas Stieger <>
  - GNU nano 5.2:
    * Making certain replacements after a large paste does not crash
    * Hitting a toggle at the Search prompt does not clear the answer
    * Using --positionlog does not complain at the first start
    * A macro containing a Search command will not sometimes fail
* Wed Aug 12 2020 Andreas Stieger <>
  - GNU nano 5.1:
    * Make M-Bsp (Alt+Backspace) delete a word backwards
    * Make M-[ bindable
    * Fix crash on first keystroke in an empty buffer --indicator
      and --softwrap
    * Fix crash when invoking the formatter while text is marked
    * In UTF-8 locales, an anchor is shown as a diamond
* Wed Jul 29 2020 Paolo Stivanin <>
  - GNU nano 5.0:
    * With --indicator (or -q or 'set indicator') nano will show a kind
      of scrollbar on the righthand side of the screen to indicate where
      in the buffer the viewport is located and how much it covers.
    * With <Alt+Insert> any line can be "tagged" with an anchor, and
      <Alt+PageUp> and <Alt+PageDown> will jump to the nearest anchor.
      When using line numbers, an anchor is shown as "+" in the margin.
    * The Execute Command prompt is now directly accessible from the
      main menu (with ^T, replacing the Spell Checker). The Linter,
      Formatter, Spell Checker, Full Justification, Suspension, and
      Cut-Till-End functions are available in this menu too.
    * On terminals that support at least 256 colors, nine new color
      names are available: pink, purple, mauve, lagoon, mint, lime,
      peach, orange, and latte. These do not have lighter versions.
    * For the color names red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, magenta,
      white, and black, the prefix 'light' gives a brighter color.
      Prefix 'bright' is deprecated, as it means both bold AND light.
    * All color names can be preceded with "bold," and/or "italic,"
      (in that order) to get a bold and/or italic typeface.
    * With --bookstyle (or -O or 'set bookstyle') nano considers any
      line that begins with whitespace as the start of a paragraph.
    * Refreshing the screen with ^L now works in every menu.
    * In the main menu, ^L also centers the line with the cursor.
    * Toggling the help lines with M-X now works in all menus except
      in the help viewer and the linter.
    * At a filename prompt, the first <Tab> lists the possibilities,
      and these are listed near the bottom instead of near the top.
    * Bindable function 'curpos' has been renamed to 'location'.
    * Long option --tempfile has been renamed to --saveonexit.
    * Short option -S is now a synonym of --softwrap.
    * The New Buffer toggle (M-F) has become non-persistent. Options
    - -multibuffer and 'set multibuffer' still make it default to on.
    * Backup files will retain their group ownership (when possible).
    * Data is synced to disk before "... lines written" is shown.
    * The raw escape sequences for F13 to F16 are no longer recognized.
    * Distro-specific syntaxes, and syntaxes of less common languages,
      have been moved down to subdirectory syntax/extra/. The affected
      distros and others may wish to move wanted syntaxes one level up.
      Syntaxes for Markdown, Haskell, and Ada were added.

      occurrence of a string by preceding the filename with +/string
      or +?string.
    * When automatic hard-wrapping occurs (--breaklonglines), any
      leading quoting characters will be automatically copied to the
      new line.
    * M-6 works again also when the cursor is at end of buffer.
* Mon Aug 12 2019 Andreas Stieger <>

    * <Alt+Up> and <Alt+Down> now do a linewise scroll instead of a findnext.
