Developers of nano, a consol text editor for Unix-systems, announced the release of the third version of the program. In nano 3.0, ASCII processing and file reading are accelerated, new keyboard shortcuts are added and bugs related to text display are fixed.

What's New in nano 3.0

  • The speed of reading files was increased by 70%, and the processing of ASCII text has doubled.
  • Changed the way to delete a word at the end of the line.
  • The Ctrl + Delete key combination now erases the word behind the carriage, Ctrl + Shift + Delete - the previous one, and Alt + Q searches in the opposite direction.
  • Checking the spelling of external tools can be disabled.
  • Fixed row numbering error when opening multiple files.
  • The formatter command and the searchagain function have been removed, so Alt + W now performs findnext by default.
  • The No-Convert button is moved to the Insert menu.
  • The Backup and New-Buffer buttons are removed from the main menu, but remain in Write-Out and Insert, respectively.
  • The program ignores pressing Esc if followed by a command key combination.
  • The rcfile error messages are no longer hidden in the Linux console.

GNU nano is a free text editor for use in the UNIX console and Unix-like systems. It is a copy of the Pico editor built into the Pine mail client. In the future, the application will receive syntax highlighting, regular expression support for searching and replacing, as well as a multi-level clipboard and other features not found in Pico.
