GNU nano is a small and friendly text editor. Besides basic text editing, nano offers many extra features like an interactive search and replace, go to line and column number, auto-indentation, feature toggles, internationalization support, and filename tab completion.

Small, simple, text-based, utf8 capable. It just keeps working.
Nano is my go to editor for anything in the command line, as well as for programming. Its integration, keyboard commands, interface and speed are all perfect. The fact that it has syntax highlighting is also a super useful feature!
Nano is very useful for simple text editing in the command line of Linux
How to not learn Vim and still get a useful text editor
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 The problem is that both web sites (http://www.nano-editor.org/ and http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/nano ) are out-of-date, misleading the reader.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!
