man-pages-3.09 is released

I've uploaded man-pages-3.09 into the release directory (or view the online pages). Notable changes in man-pages-3.09 are:

  • A new fopencookie(3) page, documents a library function that allows a custom implementation of a stdio stream.
  • A new networks(5) page (adopted from Debian) documents the /etc/networks file.
  • Feature test macro requirements were added or fixed for various pages.
  • Many parts of the hsearch(3) man page were fixed and rewritten.
Dan Jacobson remarked that people who read the COLOPHON at the end of each man page may have a kernel or glibc bug to report, rather than a man-pages bug report, but that following the URL in the COLOPHON only leads to a page describing how to report documentation bugs. So, I wrote a new page giving some pointers about reporting kernel and glibc bugs, and that page is linked from the man-pages reporting bugs page.

Fast fertig auf da Wiesn
