I've released man-pages-3.79. The release tarball is available on The browsable online pages can be found on The Git repository for man-pages is available on

Aside from many smaller fixes and improvements to various pages, the most notable changes in man-pages-3.79 are the following:

  • A new getrandom(2) page has been added. This page, written by Heinrich Schuchardt, Ted T'so, and me, describes the getrandom() system call that was added in Linux 3.17.
  • The kexec_load(2) page has been substantially updated by Vivek Goyal and me. Documentation of the kexec_file_load() system call that was added in Linux 3.17 has been added to the page. In addition, the documentation of the older kexec_load() system call has been substantially improved.
