Corrections were made to the man.man German locale translation. A flawed treatment of Awk in the configure script was corrected. Improvements were made to extension handling (CYGWIN).

      Release Notes: This release fixed shell-unsafe verification, which was missing the ampersand symbol, although this was being caught by another part of the code. The POSIX locale was unified with the C one. Additional checks were added for a defined but empty PAGER environment variable. whatis files are no longer updated on read-only partitions. bzip support was added to man2dvi and man2html. Experimental LZMA support was added to man and makewhatis. The Cygwin README was updated. Fixes were made to avoid shebang mangling in generated scripts.

        Release Notes: Sections used by makewhatis are set via the environment variable MANSECT, falling back to man.conf's MANSECT setting as man does. The use of implicit prototypes has been removed; it leads to issues on 64-bit platforms. Building will now honor pre-existing LDFLAGS, if set. The Italian and Spanish man pages have been updated. A minor bug in makewhatis' tempdir generation has been fixed. There is experimental support for Plan 9 rc shell lists. This release has overdue LSM v4 format compliance, as well as minor corrections and cleanup.

          Release Notes: A freeing of unallocated memory in '-K' under the unsafe flag was fixed. A bug in makewhatis was fixed. An off-by-one error was corrected in the LANG splitting code (there were no associated security issues). Support for DESTDIR was added in man2html's Makefile. The -D option was fixed. A header fix was made for variable header location of TIOCGWINSZ. Erroneous encoding of FR locale man page translations were corrected. EXEEXT and DESTDIR fixes were made for gencat. Minor corrections were made to CYGWIN support. Locale settings for gencat were constricted. Corrections were made to makewhatis exit codes and signal handling. man2html parsing was fixed.

                    Release Notes: When the man program encounters a page which is inaccessible, it now continues the search for an appropriate page and displays the next one if it exists. Chinese and Russian messages have been added. MANPATH items can now be set with an asterisk, which indicates that all possible dir-names are to be searched. LC_MESSAGES is the preferred variable to set for localized message catalog, and if it is not set, LANG will be used. A fix was made for correct return status.
