    * roff(7): Implement \n(.$ (number of macro arguments).
    * roff(7): Fully implement \z (do not advance cursor).
    * roff(7): Implement the `r'  conditional (register exists).

    * roff(7): Parse and ignore \, and \/ (italic corrections).
    * When there is no -m, no -M, no MANPATH and no /etc/man.conf,

      are deleted during validation.
    * mdoc(7): Avoid a NULL pointer access when .Bd has no arguments.
    * mdoc(7): Avoid a NULL pointer access triggered by mismatching end macros.
    * mdoc(7): Avoid an assertion when .Fo has no argument.
    * mdoc(7): Avoid an assertion when .Ta<tab> occurs in .Bl -column.
    * mdoc(7): Avoid an assertion when a body gets broken and has a tail.
    * roff(7): Avoid an assertion caused by blanks inside \o.
    * tbl(7): Avoid a use after free when the last line of a layout is empty.
    * eqn(7): Avoid an infinite loop caused by recursive "define".

       --- MINOR BUGFIXES ---
    * mdoc(7): Put arguments to end macros of broken partial explicit blocks

    * mdoc(7): Let .Dv force normal font.
    * mdoc(7): Make trailing whitespace significant in .Bl -tag widths.
    * mdoc(7): Fix macro interpretation around tabs in .Bl -column.
    * man(7): Use the default width for .RS without arguments.
    * man(7): On a new RS nesting level, the saved width starts from
