I've released man-pages-3.74. The release tarball is available on The browsable online pages can be found on The Git repository for man-pages is available on

Aside from various minor changes to many pages, the most notable changes in man-pages-3.74 are the following:

  • A new cp1252(7) page by Marko Myllynen documents the CP 1252 character set. Marko also submitted a large number of patches that made the various character set pages in Section 7 more consistent content and layout.
  • I've written a new pldd(1) page that documents the pldd command added to glibc in version 2.15.
  • I've made a number of updates to the mq_overview(7) page, among them to add documentation of the  /proc/sys/fs/mqueue/msgsize_default and  /proc/sys/fs/mqueue/msg_default files.
