2018.04.27 - GNU nano 2.9.6 "Gomance" fixes a crash in word completion,
             makes --enable-altrcname work again, improves the fluidity
             of scrolling when using the touchpad, tweaks the syntaxes
             for shell scripts and PO files, makes a replacing session
             go always forward by default, no longer inserts a newline
             after an external spell check of a selected region, always
             accepts the English Y and N (and A) at a yes-no prompt in
             any locale, and solves a few hypothetical bugs

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:  (build failure with --disable-help)  (laggy scrolling when using touchpad)  (--enable-altrcname was broken)  (unchanging linter after being used)  (theoretical hang)  (segfault when using word completion)  (theoretical crash)  (unexpected backward search)  (extra newline after a spell check)

Changes between v2.9.5 and v2.9.6:

Liu Hao (1):
      replacing: always clear the backwards flag for ^\, just like for ^W

Benno Schulenberg (40):
      build: do not prefix an alternative rcfilename with a dot
      build: fix compilation when configured with --disable-help
      bump version numbers and add a news item for the 2.9.6 release
      command-execution: do not crash when opening the pipe would fail
      completion: correctly do a signed comparison, to avoid a segfault
      files: prevent a hang when a call to sigaction() would fail
      formatting, linting: redetermine the argument list for every run
      gnulib: update to its current upstream state
      memory: use a reallocation to reduce the amount of leakage
      po: update translations and regenerate POT/PO files  [*amended message*]
      prompt: recognize Yes/No/All in English when the locale gives no match
      rcfile: skip color commands where some color name is invalid
      scrolling: don't redraw entire edit window when cursor goes offscreen
      search: always go forward by default, also when coming from Goto-Line
      search: use a better value to mean "nothing was typed"
      speller: don't add an extra newline when saving the text to a tempfile
      syntax: po: highlight also other escaped characters, not just \n
      syntax: sh: colorize options only when they are preceded by whitespace
      tweaks: adjust the translator hint about Yes/No/All
      tweaks: correct or improve a couple of comments

      tweaks: fix a typo, remove a blank line, and improve some comments
