Very lentghy release notes in the ANNOUNCE file, whose beginning is:

   These notes are for ncurses 6.2, released February 12, 2020.

   This  release  is  designed  to  be source-compatible with ncurses 5.0
   through  6.1; providing extensions to the application binary interface
   (ABI).  Although  the  source  can  still be configured to support the
   ncurses  5  ABI, the reason for the release is to reflect improvements
   to the ncurses 6 ABI and the supporting utility programs.

   There  are,  of  course,  numerous  other improvements, listed in this

   The  most  important  bug-fixes/improvements  dealt  with user-defined
   capabilities  in terminal descriptions. The release notes also mention
   some other bug-fixes, but are focused on new features and improvements
   to existing features since ncurses 6.1 release.
