+Changes in version 1.14.6, released on XXX XXX, 2019
+ * man(1) -T ascii: slowly start implementing tagging support for man(7)
+   pages: tag alphabetic arguments of .IP, .TP, and .TQ macros
+ * -T html: wrap text and phrasing elements in paragraphs unless
+   already contained in flow containers; never put them directly
+   into sections.  This helps to format paragraphs with the CSS
+   class selector .Pp.
+ * roff(7): implement the .break request (break out of a .while loop)
+ * if messages are shown and output is printed without a pager,
+   display a heads-up on stderr at the end because otherwise, users
+   may easily miss the messages
+ * mandoc.css: support prefers-color-scheme: dark
+ * man(1): do not segfault if /tmp/ is not writeable
+ * tbl(7): fix a crash when the last column is only reached by spans
+ * tbl(7) -T ascii: fix a NULL pointer access on empty data cells
+ * tbl(7) -T ascii: fix a NULL pointer access on a line next to a short row
+ * -T html: fix an assertion failure caused by .ft in rare situations
+ * roff(7): fix a rare case of writing one byte past the end of the input buffer
+ * man(1) -h: for pages lacking a SYNOPSIS, show the NAME section
+ * man(1): when the first argument starts with a digit, optionally
+   followed by a letter, and at least one more argument follows,
+   interpret the first argument as a section name even when additional
+   characters follow after the digit and letter
+ * man(1): with a specific section requested, try harder to find
+   the best match; use this order of preference:
+   1. The section in both the directory name and the file name matches exactly.
+   2. The section in the file name matches exactly.
+   3. The section in the directory name matches exactly.
+   4. Neither of them matches exactly.
+ * man(1): if no tags were generated at all, unlink(2) the empty
+   tags file as soon the condition can be detected and do not pass
+   it to less(1)
+ * makewhatis(8): handle both dangling symlinks and .so links
+   in manual page directories more gracefully
+ * man.cgi(8): for invalid queries and for valid queries returning
+   no result, return the appropriate 40x status code rather than 200
+ * tbl(7) -T utf8: improved rendering of horizontal lines
+ * mdoc(7) -T html: format .Nd with <span> rather than <div>
+ * mdoc(7) -T lint: do not warn about $Mdocdate$ without an actual date
+ * mdoc(7) -T lint: do not complain about function types of the
+   form "ret_type (fname)(args)", but otherwise check names more strictly
+    --- MINOR BUGFIXES ---
+ * man(1): do the search for each name independently, and show the
+   results in the order of the command line argument
+ * man(1): when asking for a single manual page by name, prefer
+   file name matches over .Dt/.TH matches over first NAME matches
+   over later NAME matches, but do not change the ordering for
+   apropos(1) nor for man -a
+ * roff(7): when calling an empty macro, do not clobber existing arguments
+ * mdoc(7) .Bl -column: parse Macro in .It "word<tab>word" Ta word Macro<eol>
+ * -T html: remove some spurious line breaks, in particular inside <pre>
+ * move some code out of the giant main() into separate functions
+   doing one well-defined task each
+ * clearly separate parser state (struct curparse) and formatter state
+   (struct outstate), don't mix them in the same struct
+ * in the HTML formatter, assert(3) that no HTML nesting violation occurs
+ * let html_close_paragraph() close any phrasing context
