An updated version of nano has been released to the cygwin mirrors.  Nano is
a text editor designed to resemble, but improve upon, the pico text editor
This version has been updated to the latest official stable release 1.2.2 -
It mainly contains bug fixes compared to the previously released 1.2.0.

Note: This release of nano 1.2.2 has been compiled against cygwin 1.5.3 -
therefore you should be using a version no older then that version of cygwin
if you want it to work.

Other changes include
- compiled against libncurses7  - apears it may have fixed the occasional
lack of updating on scrolling.
- files are now installed according to the Filesystem Heirachy Standard
(FHS) (meaning documentation is under /usr/share)

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.  Once
you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Editors"  and then click on
the appropriate field until the above
announced version number appears if it is not displayed already.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin mailing
list at:  cygwin at cygwin dot com .  I would appreciate it if you would use
this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  This includes ideas and
comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.

the appropriate place.
