the key should produce: some spaces, a hard TAB, ...

2019 April 24 - GNU nano 4.2 "Tax the rich, pay the teachers"
The integrated spell checker does not crash when 'spell' is missing.
Option --breaklonglines works also when --ignorercfiles is used.
Automatic hard-wrapping is more persistent in pushing words to the
same overflow line.

An overlong line is no longer automatically hard-wrapped.
Smooth scrolling (one line at a time) has become the default.
A newline character is no longer automatically added at end of buffer.
The line below the title bar is by default part of the editing space.
Option --breaklonglines (-b) turns automatic hard-wrapping back on.
Option --jumpyscrolling (-j) gives the chunky, half-screen scrolling.
Option --finalnewline (-f) brings back the automatic newline at EOF.
Option --emptyline (-e) leaves the line below the title bar unused.
and now do a linewise scroll instead of a findnext.
Any number of justifications can be undone (like all other operations).
When marked text is justified, it becomes a single, separate paragraph.
Option --guidestripe= draws a vertical bar at the given column.
Option --fill= no longer turns on automatic hard-wrapping.
When a line continues offscreen, it now ends with a highlighted " ".
The halfs of a split two-column character are shown as " " and " ".
A line now scrolls horizontally one column earlier.
The bindable functions 'cutwordleft' and 'cutwordright' were renamed
to 'chopwordleft' and 'chopwordright' as they don't use the cutbuffer.
The paragraph-jumping functions were moved from Search to Go-to-Line.
Option --rebinddelete is able to compensate for more misbindings.
Options --morespace and --smooth are obsolete and thus ignored.
The --disable-wrapping-as-root configure option was removed.

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 a score of tiny.

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 form the
New softwrap navigation). The conversion to gnulib
Was done by Mike Frysinger, the softwrap overhaul by

3 "Ontbijtkoek" wipes away a handful of :
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.
