2017.11.27 - GNU nano 2.9.1 "Damyatta" fixes a bug where, when the mark
                is on, ^S would overwrite the file with just the marked
                region.  This release further clears the "Modified" flag
                when all edits are undone, adds or updates some magic
                strings, and does not forget when the cursor was last
                at line 1, column 1.

GNU nano is a simple and easy-to-use editor for on the terminal.

The tarball and its signature are here:

Specific bugs that were fixed in this release:  (magic no longer worked)  (build failure with certain options)  (don't cancel softmark when not moving)  (linter would leave the mark on)  (^S would ruin file when mark is on)  (clear "Modified" when all is undone)  (don't forget when at line 1, column 1)  (always update stat info for full file)

Changes between v2.9.0 and v2.9.1:

Benno Schulenberg (21):
      build: fix compilation with --disable-browser --disable-tabcomp
      bump version numbers and add a news item for the 2.9.1 release
      files: always update the stat info when the entire file is written
      files: save the marked region only when we've prompted for a file name
      gnulib: update to its current upstream state
      history: create the path '~/.local/share/' when it is needed
      history: make nano's state directory accessible for the user only
      history: save the positions file also when a record was deleted
      input: make the macro key discoverable by giving feedback when undefined
      linting: switch the mark off when the linter starts
      po: update translations and regenerate POT file and PO files
      selecting: do not cancel the softmark when the cursor is not moved
      selecting: let a justification cancel a softmark
      syntax: adjust the magic strings for the changes since file-5.10
      tweaks: adjust indentation after previous change
      tweaks: elide the 'mark_set' boolean -- the 'mark' pointer is enough
      tweaks: rename, rewrap, and reshuffle some stuff, and frob some comments
      tweaks: reshuffle a couple of lines, and frob a comment or two
      tweaks: reshuffle a couple of lines, to put similar things together
      undo: clear the Modified state when the very first edit is undone
      undo: discarding the stack does not always lose information
