2017.05.18 - GNU nano 2.8.3 "Hirsch" fixes a misplacement of the spotlight
                during interactive replacing, avoids build failures on AIX
                and Solaris, fixes a crash on Solaris, speeds up backwards
                searching, improves PHP syntax highlighting, and no longer
                asks “save anyway?” when the user ^Q discards the buffer.

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:  (unsmooth scrolling with softwrap)  (build failure on AIX)  (build failure on SunOS)  (a cursor jump when +,COL was big)  (misplacement of spotlight)  (outside-spec crash on SunOS)

Changes between v2.8.2 and v2.8.3:

Benno Schulenberg (35):
      bindings: allow toggling a new buffer when multiple buffers are enabled
      build: don't use a dummy dependency, as it breaks non-GNU makes
      build: for Solaris, tell the linker where to find clock_gettime()
      build: use backticks to avoid a warning during autoreconf
      build: use the "force" mechanism to always run the revision rule
      bump version numbers and add a news item for the 2.8.3 release
      chars: optimize moving a character left in the non-UTF-8 case
      chars: probe for a valid UTF-8 starter byte, instead of overstepping
      chars: valid UTF-8 codes are at most 4 bytes long, so look only that far
      display: keep the cursor put, also when toggling nohelp or morespace
      files: don't ask "save anyway" when user orders to discard the buffer
      history: don't save the cursor position for temporary help files
      moving: limit the target column when it is beyond the last chunk
      po: update translations and regenerate POT file and PO files
      replacing: don't let placewewant influence the placement of the cursor
      startup: don't call delwin() with NULL, to avoid crashing on Solaris
      syntax: makefile: color comments only at start of line or after whitespace
      syntax: nanohelp: color also ^6 as a shortcut keystroke
      syntax: php: color also variable names, and color more reserved words
      syntax: php: recognize also the .phtml and .php7 extensions
      syntax: xml: recognize an XML file also by its first line
      tweaks: add another warning for an impossible condition
      tweaks: adjust whitespace and comments after the preceding change
      tweaks: avoid an empty function call in tiny version with line numbers
      tweaks: exclude from the tiny version five error-betraying messages
      tweaks: exclude from the tiny version two messages that will never occur
      tweaks: fix compilation with --enable-tiny ...-help and ...-multibuffer
      tweaks: remove an old fault-catching message
      tweaks: remove five dummy function definitions from the tiny version
      tweaks: rename three empty functions, and reshuffle some others
      tweaks: rewrap a couple of old items in NEWS, and fix an article
      tweaks: swap a comparison, to be clearer
      tweaks: transform the token DISABLE_BROWSER to ENABLE_BROWSER
      tweaks: transform the token DISABLE_NANORC to ENABLE_NANORC
      tweaks: transform the token DISABLE_TABCOMP to ENABLE_TABCOMP

David Lawrence Ramsey (2):
      display: ensure smooth scrolling when the edit window is resized
      tweaks: fix several whitespace irregularities
