2018.01.02 - GNU nano 2.9.2 "Pussy Riot" correctly displays the Modified
                state when undoing/redoing (also when the file was saved
                somewhere midway), improves the undoing of an automatic
                linefeed at EOF, fixes a build issue on the BSDs, shows
                the cursor again when compiled with --withslang, renames
                the option 'justifytrim' to 'trimblanks' because it will
                now snip trailing whitespace also while you are typing
                (and hard-wrapping is enabled), continues pushing words
                to the next line much longer (when hard-wrapping), makes
                <Tab> and <Shift+Tab> indent and unindent a marked region,
                allows unindenting when not all lines are indented, lets a
                region marked with Shift persist when indenting/unindenting
                or commenting/uncommenting it, and in those cases excludes
                the last line of the region when it is not visibly marked
                (which makes for a more intuitive behavior).

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:  (trimming of tail spaces [request])  (undoing added magic lines)  (build failure on macOS Sierra)  (too quickly created a new wrapline)  (missing cursor when using Slang)  (arrow keys failed with --rebindkeypad)  (Modified state not shown correctly)  (prompt bar not getting wiped)

Nano has complete translations for the following thirteen languages
(the language name is followed by the name of the last translator):
