I've released man-pages-4.01. The release tarball is available on kernel.org. The browsable online pages can be found on man7.org. The Git repository for man-pages is available on kernel.org.
This release resulted from patches, bug reports,and comments from nearly 50 contributors. As well as a large number of minor fixes to over 100 man pages, the more significant changes in man-pages-4.01 include the following:
- A new bpf(2) man page documents the bpf() system call. This page was primarily written by Alexei Starovoitov, the author of the system call.
- The queue(3) page has been updated (by reimporting and editing a recent FreeBSD version of the man page) to include a number of functions that were formerly undocumented.
- Thread-safety information was added to more than 50 man pages, bringing the total number of pages that carry this information to over 500.
- Marko Myllynen provided substantial updates for the locale(5) man page, so that it now provides near-complete documentation of the format of locale definition files.
