     --- MAJOR NEW FEATURES ---
- * man(1) -T ascii: slowly start implementing tagging support for man(7)
-   pages: tag alphabetic arguments of .IP, .TP, and .TQ macros

-   into sections.  This helps to format paragraphs with the CSS
-   class selector .Pp.
+ * mdoc(7): automatic tagging improved in many respects
+ * mdoc(7): new .Tg (tag) macro to explicitly mark a place as defining a term
+ * man(7): implement some automatic tagging support

+   This helps to format paragraphs with the CSS class selector .Pp.

+ * man(1): switch the default pager from "more -s" to "less"
+ * man(1): in the fallback code to look for manual pages without using
+   mandoc.db(5), accept files "man<one-digit-section>/<name>.<full-section>"
+   in addition to the already supported "man<full-section>/name.[01-9]*"
+ * 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
+ * man.cgi(8): add a Content-Security-Policy HTTP header
+ * man.cgi(8): switch off autocomplete and autocapitalize
  * mandoc.css: support prefers-color-scheme: dark

+ * tbl(7) -T tree: print more details about columns, options, rows, and cells
+ * roff(7): implement the .break request (break out of a .while loop)
+ * roff(7): support the CB and CI fonts in \f and .ft
+ * -T lint: new STYLE message if a file name extension contradicts .Dt/.TH

+   a symbolic link that points to a directory

  * tbl(7): fix a crash when the last column is only reached by spans
+ * tbl(7): fix a NULL pointer access in some cases of two spans on one row
  * 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

+    --- PORTABILITY IMPROVEMENTS ---
+ * rename HOMEBREWDIR to READ_ALLOWED_PATH, allow it to contain more than
+   one directory, and explain how to use that for NixOS and GNU Guix Linux
+ * configure: stop trying to ask make(1) what the default compiler is
+   because that test was too fragile; just use "cc" by default
+ * configure: various simplifications and improved robustness
+ * configure: only compile compat_*.c implementations that are needed
