man-db (5 August 2019)

Major changes since man-db 2.8.6:

  • Fix missing memory copies in ult_src that caused segfaults in mandb.

Major changes since man-db 2.8.5:

  • If more than one of "../man", "man", "../share/man", and "share/man" exist relative to a directory on $PATH, then all of them are now added to the automatically-determined manpath; previously, only the first was considered.
  • Remove arbitrary limit on manpath size.
  • The systemd database maintenance service now runs mandb with the --quiet option, avoiding excess log messages.
  • Default to --without-systemdsystemunitdir and --without-systemdtmpfilesdir on non-Linux systems.
  • Fix failure to link libman using the Darwin linker.
  • "apropos -w" now works when given a non-lower-case pattern.
  • Convert most list and hash table code to Gnulib's container types: these are more flexible and normally more concise than home-grown equivalents.
  • There is a new configure option --disable-manual, which causes the man-db manual not to be built or installed.
