   Changes in version 1.14.2, released on July XXX, 2017
       --- MAJOR NEW FEATURES ---
    * New mdoc(7) -Tmarkdown output mode.
    * For -Thtml, implement internal hyperlinks pointing to authoritative
      definitions of various syntax elements, similar to the ctags(1)-like
      less(1) :t internal searching in terminal mode.
    * Provide a superset of the functionality of the former mdoclint(1)
      utility and a new -Wstyle message level with several new messages,
      including validity checking of .Xr cross references.
    * tbl(7): Implement automatic line breaking inside individual table
      cells, and several other formatting improvements.
    * eqn(7): Complete rewrite of the lexer, resulting in several bugfixes.
    * Continue parser unification, in particular allowing generation
      of syntax tree nodes on the roff(7) level, allowing implementation
      of many additional roff requests.
    * Delete the manpage(1) utility.  It was never enabled in any release.
    * Delete the -Txhtml command line option.  It has been an obsolete
      alias for the -Thtml output mode for more than two years.
       --- MINOR NEW FEATURES ---
    * mdoc(7): Various .Lk formatting improvements.
    * man(7): Implement the .MT/.ME block macro (mailto hyperlink).
    * man(7): Implement the .DT macro (restore default tab positions).
    * man(7): Improved support for manuals generated with reStructuredText
      by partial support for the \n[an-margin] number register.
    * man(7) -Thtml: Support deep linking to .SH and .SS headers.
    * tbl(7): Implement the "allbox" table option.
    * tbl(7): Implement the column spacing and the 'w' (minimum column
      width) layout modifiers.
    * tbl(7): Significant improvements of the manual page.
    * eqn(7): Much improved font selection, including recognition of
      well-known function names, and a few other formatting improvements.
    * eqn(7) -Thtml: Use <mn> and <mo> in addition to <mi>.
    * roff(7): Implement the .ce (centering), .mc (margin character),
      .rj (right justify), .ta (define tab stops), .ti (temporary indent),
      .als (macro alias), .ec and .eo (escape character control),
      .po (page offset), and .rn (macro rename) requests.
    * roff(7) .am: Implement appending to mdoc(7) and man(7) macros.
    * roff(7): implement the \h (horizontol motion), \l (horizontal
      line drawing), and \p (break output line) escape sequences,
      and also several additional character escape sequences.
    * roff(7): Implement the 'd' conditional (macro or string defined).
    * man.cgi(8) now uses pledge(2), too.
