Nano and UTF-8

It's been a few weeks since I last posted, but I saw Martin-Éric laments about the lack of UTF-8 support in GNU nano. Yes, it's unfortunate that the current stable version is lacking this feature, but don't despair, the development branch (1.3.x) will soonish have it, as David is completing the internal work that was needed to make this possible. As soon as Sarge freezes, I'll consider switching unstable's nano to 1.3.x, as it's quite stable and carries some good fixes in a number of areas.

Martin, I was sorry to read about your wife's miscarriage. I hope both of you are well.
