GNU nano is a console text editor, modelled after Pico. It is very newcomer-friendly due to on-screen menus with always visible keyboard shortcuts. Keybindings are configurable, and full undo and redo actions are supported. Nano even can be used as STDIN pager, and it provides fast syntax highlighting, even for regexps.
minor feature: 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 David Ramsey.
