Release information
Release notes:

Fixes:
------

o Tools that consider the terminal line length now try the
  TIOCGWINSZ ioctl on /dev/tty as well as standard input/output.

o mandb does a better job of coping with index files having
  incorrect ownership.

o Squeeze blank lines internally rather than relying on the pager
  supporting the -s option.

o Fix use-after-free in ult_src.

o Fix crash when running from a missing and unreadable current
  directory, such as an orphaned subdirectory of /proc.

o Restore the ability to use 'man -a' noninteractively.

2.7.2 release from the main series released 2015-08-16

Release information
Release notes:

Fixes:
------

o 'man -k' and 'man -f' now pass any provided -l option through to
  the underlying apropos/whatis programs.

o apropos and whatis no longer truncate names if long output was
  requested.

o The database handle is no longer stored in a global variable,
  fixing a class of possible double-close bugs.

2.7.1 release from the main series released 2014-11-07

Release information
Release notes:

Fixes:
------

o Various portability fixes for Solaris, contributed by Peter Bray.

o man now runs correctly when its current working directory has been
  deleted. (As a result of this fix, man-db now requires
  libpipeline >= 1.4.0.)

o 'man -a' sends its prompts to /dev/tty rather than to stderr, and
  likewise reads replies from /dev/tty rather than from stdin.

  libc bug in GNU/Hurd.

2.7.0 release from the main series released 2014-09-22

Release information
Release notes:

Upgrading from previous versions:
---------------------------------

For the first time since version 2.4.0, the database format has
changed slightly, so you will need to run 'mandb --create' after
installing the new version to rebuild your databases from scratch.
(Distribution packages should do this automatically for system
databases.)

Fixes:
------

o lexgrog now filters terminal escape sequences out of cat pages
  before trying to parse them.

o Tools that consider the terminal line length now prioritise the
  COLUMNS environment variable above the TIOCGWINSZ ioctl.

o Manpath elements are no longer canonicalised before being inserted
  into the search path; this caused the use of incorrect catpaths in
  some cases. This was broken by the LANGUAGE-handling fixes in
  2.5.4.

2.6.7 release from the main series released 2014-04-10

Release information
Release notes:

Fixes:
------

o Fix a test failure when configured with --enable-undoc.

o Run the pager in man's original working directory rather than in
  the manual hierarchy. (As a result of this fix, man-db now
  requires libpipeline >= 1.3.0.)

o mandb only creates a cache directory tag if the catpath is
  different from the manpath, since it should only be created in
  directories that consist entirely of cached information.

Release information
Release notes:

man-db is now revision-controlled using git (http://git-scm.com/).

Fixes:
------

o apropos's --and option now works again; it was broken by the
  optimisations in 2.6.2.

o Restore compatibility with Automake 1.10.

o Improve support for translation of common elements of help
  messages.

o Don't issue error messages when the database refers to a page that
  no longer exists.

o Pass macro and hyphenation language tags to groff again (broken in
  2.6.5).

Improvements:
-------------

o ./configure --with-override-dir=OVERRIDE arranges to look for
  manual pages in DIR/OVERRIDE before each path element DIR.

Release information
Release notes:

Fixes:
------

o man's --warnings option works again on systems with versions of
  groff that support it (broken in 2.6.4).

o man automatically falls back to C.UTF-8 and then en_GB.UTF-8 if
  trying to find a UTF-8 locale on a system without
  /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED.
