is released.

2003.01.17 - GNU nano 1.1.99pre1 "enough already" has been released.
                This release is, barring bug fixes and documentation
                updates, what version 1.2.0 has looked like, feature
                wise. There will very likely be bugs, just due the 
                volume of changes made in this release.  Search 
                and replace string history has been added, including an 
                option to log history to ~/.nano_history (-H, 
                --historylog). Because of this, the pico incompatible 
                search/replace string behavior that used to be the 
                default has been deleted.   The old "pico" flag (-p) 
                is now compatible with Pico's "preserve" mode for 
                allowing flow control characters; by default this 
                version ignores both ^Q and ^S. The 
                --disable-wrapping-as-root configure option has been 
                forward ported from version 1.0.x, and a new flag to 
                enable all extra options (--enable-all) has been added.  
                The internal spell checker has been improved, meaning 
                you will now be prompted only once for each unique 
                capitalization of a given word.  
                        There have also been lots of bug fixes,
                including the "trying to insert a directory name in 
                multibuffer mode bug", the ugly spell checker scrolling,
                the color code, cutting text crashes, justification,
                deleting the "magic line" via replace, and cursor 
                positioning on the statusbar.   There have also been
                the usual helping of translation and documentation
                        Please send all new feedback on this release
                direct to the development list (address@hidden).
