2016.09.01 - GNU nano 2.7.0 "Suni" adds a new feature: allowing text to be
                selected by holding Shift together with the cursor keys.
                Besides that, nano now works also when run in very tiny
                terminals (down to one line, one column), and improves
                the handling of the prompt in cramped spaces.  Not much,
                but it's time to get it out there.

                With this release we return to GNU.  For just a little while
                we dreamt we were tigers.  But we are back in the herd,
                back to a healthy diet of fresh green free grass.
