Nano-1.2.5 page says:

The Nano package has major issues when used in a UTF-8 based locale. A development version is available which addresses these issues at This version can be installed with the same instructions shown below. See the Locale Related Issues page for a more general discussion of these problems.

Why point to the old development version when Nano-2.0.0 exists and is stable? Please either change the link in the note and remove the word "development", or simply unconditionally upgrade Nano to 2.0.0 and remove the note.

Summary: Nano-1.2.5 page points to nano-1.3.x in locale noteNano-2.0.0

Because I didn't know that nano-2.0.0 had been released. Renaming bug. I'm gonna push in this version soon and get rid of the locale warnings. I've been using 1.99.x for a while and it's working out great.

Updated in r6370. I left the text in locale-issues alone for now, but removed the warning on the page. Alexander, does this version of nano fix all the issues you're aware of? It seemed to respect the charset in my testing, but I really only tested with UTF-8. I'm not very good at managing multiple charsets in any sane manner.

On the locale-related issues page, all instances of nano-1.2.5 should be changed to nano-2.0.1, except the last one (it should be completely removed from the "Program Breaks Multibyte Characters or Doesn't Count Character Cells Correctly" section).
