2022.02.09 - GNU nano 6.1  "Rețelele de socializare sunt ca un frigider"

• The behavior of ^K at a prompt has been enhanced: when there is
  text after the cursor, just this text is erased.  (In the usual
  situation, however, when the cursor is at the end of the answer,
  the behavior is as before: the whole answer is erased.)
• At a prompt, M-6 copies the current answer into the cutbuffer.
• Large external pastes into nano are handled more quickly.

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 issues that were addressed in this release:  (answer at prompt could not be copied)  (build failure on Darwin)  (pasting into nano was too slow)  (cancelling an overwrite could exit)  (spotlight could be wrong after macro)
