2019.08.25 - GNU nano 4.4 "Hagelslag"

• At startup, the cursor can be put on the first or last occurrence
  of a string by preceding the filename with +/string or +?string.
• When automatic hard-wrapping occurs (--breaklonglines), any leading
  quoting characters will be automatically copied to the new line.
• M-6 works again also when the cursor is at end of buffer.

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

A concise overview of nano's shortcut keystrokes:

The tarball and its signature are here:

Specific bugs that were fixed in this release:  (add search at startup [request])  (auto-comment at hard-wrap [request])  (document the flavor of regex)  (wrong report for bad rcfile)  (spotlighted text could spill)  (bad scrolling in shallow terminal)  (M-6 not working when at end-of-file)  (^K/^U should clear existing message)  (miscoloring after Perl variable name)  (say "Search Wrapped" only when it did)

Changes between v4.3 and v4.4:

Brand Huntsman (3):
      rcfile: for an empty syntax, show the line number of the 'syntax' command
      rcfile: report the correct command location for an invalid 'include'
      search: accept toggles for case and regex when searching at startup

Benno Schulenberg (54):
      browser: draw a bar of spaces only where needed -- for the selected item
      build: exclude the search-at-startup feature from the tiny version
      bump version numbers and add a news item for the 4.4 release
      copying: do not prevent M-6 from copying emptiness into the cutbuffer
      display: blank the status bar on a successful cut or paste
      display: clear the remainder of a row only when there actually is some
      display: don't clear a row beforehand -- just clear the remainder
      display: use a somewhat faster method to clear a row
      display: when linenumbering, correctly spotlight text that spans two rows
      display: where needed, use slow blanking, but elsewhere do it much faster
      docs: change a few URLs over to https, and rewrap a couple of NEWS items
      docs: document the search-at-startup feature (+/string or +?string)
      docs: make the synopsis of --speller and 'set speller' more accurate
      docs: mention the M-N toggle instead of the obsolete M-# one
      docs: slightly reword some of the descriptions around syntax highlighting
      docs: slightly reword the descriptions of most configure options
      docs: stop mentioning the 'unjustify' function, as it no longer exists
      gnulib: update to its current upstream state
      new document: a condensed overview of nano's shortcut keystrokes
      new feature: allow specifying a search string to "jump to" at startup
      po: update translations and regenerate POT file and PO files
      rcfile: properly handle an empty syntax before an 'include' statement
      scrolling: don't overscroll when the edit window has just one row
      search: don't wipe the status bar at startup when there was an error
      search: wipe the status bar before searching again (M-W / M-Q)
      syntax: c: allow an underscore in lowercase type names
      syntax: default: colorize bracketed section headers in some config files
      syntaxes: change some unneeded 'icolor' commands to 'color' commands
      syntaxes: recognize .ctp extension as a PHP file, and .cu as a C/C++ file
      syntax: perl: avoid recognizing embedded hash signs as a comment starter
      syntax: perl: avoid upsetting older glibcs with crafty range expression
      syntax: perl: don't color the character after a variable name
      syntax: po: colorize numbers only when they form a self-contained word
      text: copy leading quote characters when automatic hard-wrapping occurs
      tweaks: add a translator hint, to clarify four short words
      tweaks: call the correct lighting function directly when softwrapping
      tweaks: condense some comments, and drop two unneeded initializations
      tweaks: drop two parameters that are no longer needed
      tweaks: improve a comment, and drop a superfluous one
      tweaks: improve a handful of comments
      tweaks: make a function name unique, to not overlap with others
      tweaks: move a call from two different places to a single place
      tweaks: move a function to before the first one that calls it
      tweaks: move a general function to a better place
      tweaks: remove a saving and restoring that has become superfluous
      tweaks: rename a function, to suit better, and reshuffle its parameters
      tweaks: rename a parameter in three functions, to say what it points to
      tweaks: reshuffle an assignment, and trim some excessive blank lines
      tweaks: reshuffle an 'if' out of a function, and rename the function
      tweaks: reword and condense two comments, and correct another
      tweaks: rewrap two lines, and reshuffle some logic to make more sense
      tweaks: shorten two messages that translators tend to make too long
      tweaks: try the allocation of a multidata cache just once per line
      tweaks: when precalculating, allocate all the cache space upfront
