2020.08.24 - GNU nano 5.2  "Ranrapalca"

• Making certain replacements after a large paste does not crash.
• Hitting a toggle at the Search prompt does not clear the answer.
• Using --positionlog does not complain at the first start.
• A macro containing a Search command will not sometimes fail.

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:  (macro with Search command could fail)  (Alt+AltGr+letter entered invalid byte)  (with --raw, keystrokes could misbehave)  (with --disable-utf8, M-V M-Ins crashed)  (after big paste, replacing could crash)  (toggle at Search prompt wiped answer)  (unbound key canceled Shift-selection)  ("light," produced poor error message)  (with --positionlog, first start griped)

Changes between v5.1 and v5.2:
