Discontinued

Apparently this project was abandoned. No updates since 2009.

It's not discontinued, latest version 2.4.2, was in fact released on the 5th of July, 2015. The page is misleading.

Check FTP site or the SVN for more information.

True! The latest version dates 2015. The project is on! The problem is that both web sites (http://www.nano-editor.org/ and http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/nano ) are out-of-date, misleading the reader. You need to look deeper, like the FTP download site, to find out that the software was recently updated. I would suggest to the Nono's developers team to update the pages. Like me, many others would discard it's use due to this mistake. Thanks for the correction!
