Comment 1 Peter Schiffer 2012-02-23 14:43:57 EST
man-db 2.6.1 (14 February 2012)

Major changes since man-db


	o --with-db=db* and --with-db=ndbm compile again.

	o Translated manual pages are no longer displayed starting with a
	  spurious blank line.

	o straycats tries to ensure that col is invoked with LC_CTYPE set to
	  a UTF-8 locale.

	o Fix double-free in mandb when encountering a symlink outside the
	  manual hierarchy, thanks to Peter Schiffer.


	o mandb creates a cache directory tag, per
	  http://www.brynosaurus.com/cachedir/ ("Cache Directory Tagging

	o Add support for Lzip-compressed manual pages, thanks to Matias A.

	o Running 'man -w' (with a new --path alias) without a name now
	  prints the manpath, for compatibility with other man
	  implementations.  The vim viewdoc plugin makes use of this.
