man-pages-3.17 is released

I've uploaded man-pages-3.17 into the release directory (or view the online pages). Notable changes in man-pages-3.17 are:

  • A new endian(3) page documents functions added in glibc 2.9 that convert between host byte order and little- and big-endian order: htobe16(), htole16(), be16toh(), le16toh(), htobe32(), htole32(), be32toh(), le32toh(), htobe64(), htole64(), be64toh(), and le64toh().

  • A new getifaddrs(3) page documents the getifaddrs() and freeifaddrs() library functions.

  • 8 new pages describe various character sets: cp1251(7), iso-8859-10(7), iso_8859-13(7), iso_8859-14(7), iso_8859-3(7), iso_8859-5(7), iso_8859-8(7), and koi8-u(7). Thanks to Lefteris Dimitroulakis for contributing these!

  • And various smaller changes in many other pages.
