man-pages-3.76 is released

I've released man-pages-3.76. We've just passed 12k commits in the project, and this release, my 158th,  marks the completion of my tenth year as maintainer of the man-pages project.

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 a large number of smaller fixes and improvements to many pages, the most notable changes in man-pages-3.76 are the following:

  • The adjtimex(2) page has been greatly expanded adding many more details on the behavior of the adjtimex() system call (but much further work remains to be done on the page).
  • The sigreturn(2) page has been expanded to include an explanation of why this system call is need, as well as some details of the so-called signal trampoline code.
