        Release Notes: This release fixed a long-standing bug that lead to an endless loop if ".ns" was still active at the last ".bp" of a document. The generated PostScript code was fixed for included images which discarded previous changes to the graphics state on the same page. A problem with ".in" at the beginning of a document with paragraph-at-once line breaking was fixed along with issues concerning ff, ffi, and ffl ligatures with Type 1 "expert" fonts.

          Release Notes: The concept of an "inline environment" has been introduced. It allows you to change fonts, text sizes, etc. in a stack-wise fashion, as with HTML "<i>...</i>", for which the corresponding syntax is "\@{\fI...\@}". In numeric expressions, modulo zero is now ignored and no longer causes a core dump. Several issues with paragraph-at-once line breaking have been fixed, concerning indents and end-of-document handling. Some minor problems with TrueType fonts, OpenType fonts, and the "-man" macros have been fixed.

            Release Notes: A "\J" escape sequence has been introduced to specify a default line breaking penalty in paragraph-at-once adjustment mode; this is useful to discourage "troff" or "nroff" from breaking a line within a formula or a person's name. A manual page for "dpost" has been added. Some minor issues have been fixed.

              Release Notes: Fixes have been made concerning paragraph-at-once adjustment, the ".pshape" request, kerning in combination with "\x", the ".rd" request, combining UTF-8 characters, and hyphenation of international languages in "nroff".

                Release Notes: Several improvements and fixes have been made for paragraph-at-once adjustment; most importantly, it is now possible to use the ".in" and ".ll" request inside a partial paragraph. A penalty for hyphenating the last word of a paragraph can now be specified. Didot points and printer's points have been introduced as new units. Some other issues have been fixed.

                  Release Notes: Paragraph-at-once adjustment using a variant of the Knuth-Plass algorithm is now available. Multiple requests and one escape sequence have been introduced to support it. The ".char" request can now construct replacements for arbitrary Unicode characters. Fractional point sizes can now be used with "eqn". Several bugs have also been fixed.

                    Release Notes: An import filter for OpenDocument files has been added. Local variables (i.e. strings and number registers specific to the current macro instance) are now supported. tbl can now optionally use drawing commands to create table borders, and has no static limit on its table sizes anymore. A more efficient PostScript output encoding is now used by default. Many other minor feature enhancements and bugfixes have been made.

                      Release Notes: More convenient input of manually justified text and the ability to set an output line prefix were introduced. The groff compatibility mode was improved. Fixes were made for the "-me" macros to make them work in both extended mode and compatibility mode. Some internal errors were fixed.
