2018.05.15 - GNU nano 2.9.7 "Hvide Sande" adds the option '--afterends'
             for making Ctrl+Right (the nextword function) stop at word
             ends instead of beginnings, accepts multibyte letters for
             the Yes/No/All answers, does emergency saves of changed
             buffers in the unlikely event that nano crashes, adds the
             until-now missing bindable function 'linenumbers', and
             renames the toggles 'constupdate' to 'constantshow' and
             'cuttoend' to 'cutfromcursor', for consistency with the
             corresponding options -- adjust your nanorc files soon.

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

The tarball and its signature are here:

Specific bugs fixed in this release were all minor:  (wrong message when spell is missing)  (better hint when reading from stdin)  (spurious message in flat terminal)

Changes between v2.9.6 and v2.9.7:

Mark-Weston (1):
      new feature: an option to make the 'nextword' function stop at word ends

Devin Hussey (1):
      signals: upon a crash, save changed buffers and reset terminal state

Benno Schulenberg (22):
      bindings: add the 'linenumbers' bindable function
      bindings: rename constupdate to constantshow, cuttoend to cutfromcursor
      bump version numbers and add a news item for the 2.9.7 release
      docs: add notes about deprecated options and function names
      docs: break down some old improvements further per version
      docs: note a small difference with Pico in the default hard-wrapping
      docs: say thanks to three recent translators, and re-sort two others
      docs: slightly improve the description of the file browser in the manual
      main: clear a spurious error number, to avoid irrelevant messages later
      po: update translations and regenerate POT file and PO files
      prompt: when asking for Yes/No/All, recognize also UTF-8 letters
      scrolling: only do a scroll when the edit window has more than one row
      signals: don't trap segfault/abort when envvar NANO_NOCATCH is defined
      signals: exclude the crash handler from the tiny version
      startup: suggest using ^D to finish reading from standard input
      tweaks: improve a couple of comments
      tweaks: normalize indentation and whitespace after previous changes
      tweaks: put check for -h and -l options in their alphabetical positions
      tweaks: put Yes/No/All in a consistent order (for the translators)
      tweaks: rename two variables, to be more descriptive
      tweaks: sort an option better, and reschedule a removal
      tweaks: use symbolic names instead of puzzling TRUE and FALSE
