man-pages-3.75 is released

I've released man-pages-3.75. The release tarball is available on The browsable online pages can be found on The Git repository for man-pages is available on

This is a quite small release. The most notable changes in man-pages-3.75 are the following:

  • A new pthread_rwlockattr_setkind_np(3) page by Robert Schweikert documents two glibc extensions to the POSIX threads API, pthread_rwlockattr_setkind_np() and  pthread_rwlockattr_getkind_np().
  • I've added a number of details about the correct way to handle UNIX domain socket pathnames in the unix(7) page, including details of how to work around a longstanding design bug that I reported some time ago to the Austin Group mailing list.
