Comment (by bdubbs@…):

 2017.03.31 - GNU nano 2.8.0
       "Axat" makes it easier to move around in
       softwrapped lines: the Up and Down keys now step from
       visual row to visual row instead of jumping between
       logical lines, and the Home and End keys now move to
       the start and end of a row, and only when already
       there, then to the start and end of the logical line.
       Furthermore, the screen can now scroll per row instead
       of always per logical line.  On an entirely different
       front: nano now makes use of gnulib, to make it build
       on more platforms.  In short: there were many internal
       changes, not many user-visible ones (apart form the
       new softwrap navigation).  The conversion to gnulib
       was done by Mike Frysinger, the softwrap overhaul by
       David Ramsey.
