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 whatis files are no longer updated on read-only partitions.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.

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.
