Among the more notable changes in man-pages-3.62 are the following:

  • A new locale(1) page documents the locale command provided by glibc.
  • The locale(5) page adds documentation of the (GNU-specific) LC_ADDRESS, LC_IDENTIFICATION, LC_MEASUREMENT, LC_NAME, LC_PAPER, and LC_TELEPHONE locale categories. Many other details in this page were also added or improved.
  • Many pieces of information in the feature_test_macros(7) page were updated or improved.
  • Again, Peng Haitao continued adding notes on thread-safety to various manual pages.
