man-pages-3.59 and man-pages-3.60 released

I've released man-pages-3.59. The release tarball is available on The browsable online pages can be found on The Git repository for man-pages is available on

The sole change in this release is the conversion of various man pages that contained non-ASCII characters, as well as the changelog, to UTF-8 encoding, a task completed thanks largely to some scripts provided by Peter Schiffer.

Update, 2014-02-18: turns out that a couple of section 7 pages had encoding errors added in man-pages-3.59. So, I've decided to make a quick small 3.60 release that fixes those issues, and includes a few other unrelated minor fixes.
