S 20190325 102509

GNU nano開発プロジェクトのBenno Schulenberg氏は3月24日(現地時間)、「GNU nano 4.0 "Thy Rope of Sands"」を公開したことを発表しました(Phoronix)。現在公式サイトより最新版のソースコードをダウンロードすることが可能です。

GNU nano 4.0では、長い行を自動的に折り返す(hard wrapping)機能の無効化や、 スムーズスクロール(1行ずつ)のデフォルト化、改行がバッファの最後に自動的に追加される機能の無効化など、以下ような新機能の追加や既存機能の修正が行われています。

• 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.
