is released

2010.04.15 - GNU nano 2.2.4 is nobody's fool.  First and foremost,
                this relase includes some security fixes due to
                an assessment of nano's vulnerability to symlink attacks
                on open files.  The CVEs fixed with this release are
                CVE-2010-1160 and CVE-2010-1161.  Also included are fixes
                for various crash modes when using the spell checker
                on new files in multibuffer mode (surely you've used
                that combination recently? No?) as well as a fixing
                the 'file was modified' message when saving to a 
                new filename (since how would nano know?).  And
                the list would not be complete without our 
                third-times-the-charm fixes to page up/down due to
                the soft wrapping code.  The lone new feature 
                included is a new syntax higlighting definition for 
                cmake-related files.  Please do consider upgrading to
                this release if still using the 2.0 series since
                fixes for that version are still forthcoming.
