2016.12.28 - GNU nano 2.7.3 "Ontbijtkoek" wipes away a handful of bugs:
                your editor is now able to handle filenames that contain
                newlines, avoids a brief flash of color when switching
                between buffers that are governed by different syntaxes,
                makes the Shift+Ctrl+Arrow keys select text again on a
                Linux console, is more resistant against malformations
                in the positionlog file, and does not crash when ^C is
                typed on systems where it produces the code KEY_CANCEL.
                Oh, and it no longer mistakenly warns about editing an
                unlocked file just after saving a new one.  That's it.
                Tastes great with thick butter.

Changes between v2.7.2 and v2.7.3:

Arturo Borrero González (1):
      syntax: nftables: add two new families, and add set references

Benno Schulenberg (62):
      binding: use plain codes instead of function calls for the jumping keys
      binding: use the code for the Enter directly instead of a function call
      bump version numbers and add a news item for the 2.7.3 release
      chars: optimize for the most common case
      chars: use memory on the stack instead of calling malloc() and free()
      docs: clarify the difference between "Esc Esc ddd" and "M-V xxxxxx"
      files: don't change embedded newlines into nulls in filenames
      files: show newlines in filenames as ^J also in error messages
      general: simplify the detection of a SIGWINCH
      history: avoid crashing when the positionlog file is malformed
      history: don't bother encoding search items -- they cannot contain 
      history: encode newlines in filenames as nulls
      history: search for the two position numbers from EOL instead of BOL
      history: search items *can* contain newlines -- encoded NUL bytes
      input: detect again when both Shift and Ctrl are being held on a VT
      input: discard a verbatim 0x0A or 0x00 byte, depending on the mode
      input: don't crash when receiving a KEY_CANCEL
      locking: disable an annoying warning
      memory: don't bother making a snug fit for things that will be freed soon
      oops: forgot to add and amend this to the previous commit
      po: update translations and regenerate POT file and PO files
      prompt: do not treat a leading newline in a filename specially
      prompt: represent newlines as ^J instead of breaking the bar
      screen: display byte value 0x0A in the right places as ^@ or as ^J
      screen: draw new content immediately, to prevent color flashes
      screen: show an embedded newline in filenames as ^J instead of ^@
      text: avoid a crash when a spell-checked line has gotten shorter
      text: discard the undo stack after formatting and after spell checking
      titlebar: always pass a pathname through display_string()
      tweaks: adjust some comments and indentation and ordering
      tweaks: chuck a special case, and reduce the scope of two variables
      tweaks: condense the setting of three flags
      tweaks: conditionalize a function that is not used in the tiny version
      tweaks: delete a bunch of unneeded asserts
      tweaks: don't bother making the next line of an end point NULL
      tweaks: don't bother reallocating a string of which there is only one
      tweaks: don't bother trimming the final newline from a position item
      tweaks: drive closer to the edge
      tweaks: elide a counter and a comparison
      tweaks: elide a function that is called just once
      tweaks: move a setting to a better place -- it needs setting just once
      tweaks: put some prototypes in the proper order, and move a bit of code
      tweaks: remove pointless or obscuring asserts
      tweaks: rename a function to describe what it does
      tweaks: rename a function to something less abbrevy
      tweaks: rename a variable and rewrap two lines
      tweaks: rename a variable to be shorter and clearer
      tweaks: rename five variables, for uniformity with a few others
      tweaks: rename four variables, for density and aptness
      tweaks: rename three variables, for visibility

      tweaks: retype, rename, and reshuffle a function
      tweaks: start searching at a better place
      tweaks: use a faster comparison
      tweaks: use a slightly faster comparison
      tweaks: use memory on the stack instead of calling malloc() and free()
      tweaks: write two pieces of conditionalized code like all others
      undo: there are just two forms of deletion: backspacing and deleting
      utils: go on to parse the line number even if the column number is bad
      utils: slightly speed up the calculation of the size of a buffer
      version: properly mention --disable-wordcomp if it was used
