2017.06.25 - GNU nano 2.8.5 "Farouche" avoids a crash when waking from
                a suspension that was induced from the outside, allows
                negative line and column numbers on the command line,
                avoids some flickering when resizing the screen while
                in the file browser, opens files in the order they were
                mentioned on the command line, and does not pretend to
                have woken from suspension when receiving a SIGCONT.

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

The tarball and its signature are here:

Specific bugs that were fixed in this release:  (segfault when foregrounded after 
SIGTSTP)  (misplaced cursor after foregrounding)  (inopportune cursor with --constantshow)  (some flicker during resizing in 
browser)  (Ctrl+Left exiting from prompt)  (theoretical segfault when stdin fails)  (wrong order of showing files)  (double "see see" in Info manual)

Changes between v2.8.4 and v2.8.5:
