      Release Notes: This release adds new features, fixes bugs, and includes advanced bash completion support. Updating is recommended. An option and a symbolic link (mansect) to print the first occurrences only (man like) have been added. The bug concerning a section without subsections was fixed. The localmanfile#section command line argument now is resolved correctly. Bash completion support was adjusted to recognize the [section] command line argument and the man style options (-S, -L, and, seealso inverted -a).
