Aside from a number of minor improvements and fixes to various pages, the notable changes in man-pages-3.64 are the following:

  • I've written a new open_by_name_at(2) page that documents the name_to_handle_at() and open_by_handle_at() system calls that were added to Linux in version 2.6.39.
  • I've made substantial updates to the inotify(7) man page to document some of the limitations, complexities, and pitfalls of the inotify API.
