2019.10.04  -  GNU nano 4.5  "Košice"

• The new 'tabgives' command allows you to specify per syntax what
  the <Tab> key should produce: some spaces, a hard TAB, ...
• The output of --help is properly aligned again for all languages.
• <Tab> will indent a marked region also when M-} has been rebound.

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:  (per-syntax tabbing behavior [request])  (+/string skipped start of file)  (column was not retained after +/string)  (filename could fail to match syntax)  (output of --help was misaligned)  (untranslated word in --help output)  (with M-} rebound, <Tab> did not indent)

Changes between v4.4 and v4.5:

      syntax: rust: add the words reserved in 2018, and remove unreserved ones
