Welcome to another release of the Nano package, the pico clone with many 
extensions, all while remaining very small indeed.  (For those a little lost 
at this point, its a text editor, reasonably powerful given its size and 
ease of use)

This is the first release of the stable 1.2 branch - and the majority of 
changes since 1.1.10 are bug fixes.
However, new things I noted while packaging it up included:
- 3 new translations
- a nanorc man file

Also worth noting is the colour syntax highlighting is still not gauranteed 
to make you happy (not many things are!), but the developers are much more 
confident in it now.  I still recommend any issues with this feature be 
directed first to the nano developer mailing list.

Finally, I have no reason to believe that this program will function 
properly without your cygwin enviroment variable being set to include "tty" 
- please consult the cygwin users guide for details on how to do so.  If you 
have issues with Ctrl-C or any other ctrl character combination, this is the 
place to start - before coming to the cygwin mailing list.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the 
http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your system. Then, 
run setup and update the nano package.

You will need to find a mirror which has this update.

In the US,
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.

In the UK,
is usually up-to-date within 48 hours.

If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package then you 
can either wait for the site to be updated or find another mirror.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin mailing 
list at: cygwin@cygwin.com . I would appreciate if you would use this 
mailing list rather than emailing me directly.

If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list is 
the appropriate place.
