yesterday, i released mandoc-1.14.6 from:


This is a regular maintenance release, focussing on bugfixes.  It is
expected to be very stable: during the last several months, i refrained
from any major structural changes, and it is also the code that will be
contained in OpenBSD 7.0.  Consequently, all downstream maintainers are
encouraged to update their ports and packages.

The release also contains some new features, in particular improved
support for automatic tagging in both mdoc(7) and man(7) documents and
the new mdoc(7) .Tg (manual tagging) macro, which is supposed to be
used sparingly and only in the unusual cases where automatic tagging
does not work and cannot be improved to make it work.

There are also several improvements to manual page discovery and selection
in man(1), and many of the smaller fixes and additions are related to
HTML and tbl(7), but there are improvements in all areas.
