Get the latest CVS version
Authored by: iMMersE on Oct 17, '02 07:37:26PM
If you are familiar with CVS, and like to live on the edge, you should get the version of Nano in CVS (Currently 1.1.11-CVS). It has a bunch of extra features over 1.0.9 - Below you can see the NEWS.

Warning though, you have to have pretty recent versions of automake/autoconf/m4 and you still need to tweak a couple of files. If anyone needs more details (Or just the a .tar.gz so you can install it in the same manner as above), feel free to drop me an email. I still prefer Jed though :)
10/01/2002 - GNU nano 1.1.11 "Oddball" is released. This release features a new version of gettext, a new and improved syntax highlighting engine, and some updates for the nanorc.sample file. The toggles for case sensitivity (Meta-C) and regular expressions (Meta-R) have changed in the search and replace prompts, multibuffer status is now displayed and can be toggled from the insert file menu, and some wrapping behavior that changed in 1.1.10 has reverted. The --enable-color warning was also made less severe, as the color syntax code has improved, and nano now uses extended regexes in the .nanorc file.

Also included are fixes for various memory leaks, the operating directory option, username tab completion, the page_up and down arrow, go to previous word and next word, nanorc parser and line wrapping code. Have fun!

07/25/2002 - At long last! GNU nano 1.1.10 "What didn't we break?" is released. This version of GNU nano features version 0.11.2 of gettext, building with automake 1.6, some new code for displaying control characters, browser improvements, a new backup file option (-B, --backup), a new option to ignore rc files (-I,--ignorercfiles), compatibility with -pedantic, handling null characters before EOF, a slightly sportier nanorc.sample and more.

Fixes are included included for justification, the reading and writing file routines, resizing and fill length, millions of memory leaks, the usage screen was updated, and the the --quotestr and --regexp really work now ;-) Enjoy :)
