Subject: mandoc-1.13.4 released
Date: Thu, 14 Jul 2016 16:48:20 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20160714144820.GA6433@athene.usta.de> (raw)


mandoc = mdocml 1.13.4 is now publicly available
from <http://mdocml.bsd.lv/>.

After more than a year of development since 1.13.3, this is a regular
maintenance release, fixing many bugs.  This release contains almost
the same mandoc code as the upcoming OpenBSD 6.0 release.  Upgrading
is recommended for all downstream projects.

There are also some new features.  In particular,

 - the man.conf(5) file format has been simplified
 - when using less(1), you can now jump to various internal targets
   like command line options, internal commands, environment
   variables, and command modifiers using the :t (tag) command
   inside less
 - a soelim(1) implementation by Baptiste Daroussin is included
 - for privilege limitation, OpenBSD pledge(2) or OS X sandbox_init(3)
   are used when available
 - man.cgi(8) now supports short URIs like http://man.openbsd.org/mdoc
 - one unified stylesheet is used rather than three different ones

See <http://mdocml.bsd.lv/NEWS> for more details about fixed bugs
and new features.

Thanks to Baptiste Daroussin, Anthony Bentley, and Todd Miller
for code contributions, Jonathan Gray for yet more testing with afl(1),
and Svyatoslav Mishyn and Sevan Janiyan for extensive release testing.
Many others sent in patches, reported bugs, suggested features,
and helped with testing, see the NEWS file for a full list.


It seems likely that this will be the last release needing SQLite
for database support.  I have started work on removing the dependency
on SQLite without loss of functionality and without needing any
replacement, relying on POSIX interfaces only.  So it is likely
that we will have a 1.14.1 release this autumn that no longer needs
SQLite.  Then again, if there is substantial demand, i might maintain
the 1.13 branch for some time in parallel.
