Benno Schulenberg announced the release of the text editor GNU nano version 3.2. In the new version, the developers solved the problem of ignoring Unicode characters in lines, added processing of nanorc files in a limited mode, and implemented the display of the cursor in help mode using the --showcursor function.

In addition to fixing bugs developers added next features:

  • Removed the default action binding to the F13, F14, and F15 keys.
  • Implemented the ability to open other files in view mode (using --restricted together with --view prohibits it).
  • Added processing of nanorc files in limited mode. The user can disable reading files using the --ignorercfiles function.
  • Renamed the prevhistory and nexthistory functions in older and newer (for this you need to change the nanorc files).
  • The --zap function is bound to the Alt and Delete key combinations for strings, as well as to Backspace and Delete for selected areas. Using the function, the developer deletes lines or selected areas without changing the buffer of the deleted information.
  • Changed the default key combination to call the linter function. It is invoked by simultaneously pressing Meta and B, and the combination of Ctrl and T changes the color of the status bar and the title text. At the same time, it can be used in application analysis mode.

GNU nano is a free text editor for use on UNIX and Unix-like systems.
