Improvements in GNU nano
========================
Since 6.0:
- Option --zero hides the interface and uses the whole terminal for editing.
- Colors can be given also in #rgb hexadecimal, to select the nearest color
from the 6x6x6 color-cube palette available on 256-color terminals.
- Fourteen new color names are available, from rosy to crimson.
Since 5.0:
- A search briefly spotlights the found text, in black on yellow by default.
- Option --minibar reduces the interface to a bottom bar with basic info.

2021.12.15 - GNU nano 6.0 "Humor heeft ook zijn leuke kanten"
• Option --zero hides the title bar, status bar and help lines, and
uses all rows of the terminal as editing area. The title bar and
status bar can be toggled with M-Z.
• Colors can now be specified also as three-digit hexadecimal numbers,
in the format #rgb. This picks from the 216 index colors (that most
terminals know) the color that is nearest to the given values.
• For users who dislike numbers, there are fourteen new color names:
rosy, beet, plum, sea, sky, slate, teal, sage, brown, ocher, sand,
tawny, brick, and crimson.
• Suspension is enabled by default, invokable with ^T^Z. The options
-z, --suspendable, and 'set suspendable' are obsolete and ignored.
(In case you want to be able to suspend nano with a single keystroke,
you can put 'bind ^Z suspend main' in your nanorc.)
• When automatic hard-wrapping is in effect, pasting just a few words
(without a line break) will now hard-wrap the line when needed.
• Toggling Append or Prepend clears the current filename.
• The word count as shown by M-D is now affected by option --wordbounds;
with it, nano counts words as 'wc' does; without it (the new default),
words are counted in a more human way: seeing punctuation as space.
• The YAML syntax file is now actually included in the tarball.
2021.10.06 - GNU nano 5.9 "El manicomio ha decidido: mañana sol!"
• The extension of a filename is added to the name of a corresponding
temporary file, so that spell checking a C file, for example, will

<h3><a name="1.3"></a>1.3. Why the name change from TIP?</h3>
<blockquote><p>On January 10, 2000, TIP was officially renamed to nano because of a namespace conflict with another program called 'tip'. The original 'tip' program &quot;establishes a full duplex terminal connection to a remote host&quot;, and was included with many older Unix systems (and newer ones like Solaris). The conflict was not noticed at first because there is no 'tip' utility included with most GNU/Linux distributions (where nano was developed).</p></blockquote>
