man-pages-3.82 is released

I've released man-pages-3.82. The release tarball is available on kernel.org. The browsable online pages can be found on man7.org. The Git repository for man-pages is available on kernel.org.

As well as a large number of minor fixes to more than 80 man pages, the more significant changes in man-pages-3.82 include the following:

  • A new nptl(7) page documents some of the specifics of the NPTL (Native POSIX Thread Library) implementation provided by glibc. In addition, many man pages for signal-related system calls added some details on where the glibc NPTL wrapper functions implement semantics that differ from the the underlying bare system call.
  • A large number of changes were made in the user_namespaces(7) page, including the addition of documentation for the /proc/PID/setgroups file that was added in Linux 3.19 in order to fix a security problem related to the use of setgroups(2) inside user namespaces.
