GNU nano 2.8.0 was released

This version of nano changes the way softwrap works: the <Up> and <Down> cursor keys now move through visual rows instead of jumping between logical lines.  And nano now makes use of gnulib, to get rid of some custom shims and to avoid the need for new ones.  The use of gnulib has increased the size of nano's tarball by some thirty percent, but... in lines of code this is the smallest nano since 2.2.0.
