man-pages-3.58 is released

I've released man-pages-3.58. 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 was a relatively small release. Among the more notable changes in man-pages-3.58 are the following:

  • The pipe(2) man page adds documentation of the new O_DIRECT flag that was implemented for pipe2() in Linux 3.4.
  • Daniel Borkmann added a description of the PACKET_QDISC_BYPASS socket option to the packet(7) man page.
  • The recv(2) man page underwent some reworking to add some details and make its structure more comprehensible.
  • And, as ever, Peng Haitao continued adding notes on thread-safety to various manual pages.
In addition, smaller improvements and fixes have been made to many other pages.
