   Changes in version 1.14.6, released on XXX XXX, 2019
       --- MAJOR NEW FEATURES ---
    * man(1) -T ascii: slowly start implementing tagging support for man(7)
      pages: tag alphabetic arguments of .IP, .TP, and .TQ macros
    * -T html: wrap text and phrasing elements in paragraphs unless
      already contained in flow containers; never put them directly
      into sections.  This helps to format paragraphs with the CSS
      class selector .Pp.
       --- MINOR NEW FEATURES ---
    * roff(7): implement the .break request (break out of a .while loop)
    * if messages are shown and output is printed without a pager,
      display a heads-up on stderr at the end because otherwise, users
      may easily miss the messages
    * mandoc.css: support prefers-color-scheme: dark
    * man(1): do not segfault if /tmp/ is not writeable
    * tbl(7): fix a crash when the last column is only reached by spans
    * tbl(7) -T ascii: fix a NULL pointer access on empty data cells
    * tbl(7) -T ascii: fix a NULL pointer access on a line next to a short row
    * -T html: fix an assertion failure caused by .ft in rare situations
    * roff(7): fix a rare case of writing one byte past the end of the input buffer
    * man(1) -h: for pages lacking a SYNOPSIS, show the NAME section
    * man(1): when the first argument starts with a digit, optionally
      followed by a letter, and at least one more argument follows,
      interpret the first argument as a section name even when additional
      characters follow after the digit and letter
    * man(1): with a specific section requested, try harder to find
      the best match; use this order of preference:
      1. The section in both the directory name and the file name matches exactly.
      2. The section in the file name matches exactly.
      3. The section in the directory name matches exactly.
      4. Neither of them matches exactly.
    * man(1): if no tags were generated at all, unlink(2) the empty
      tags file as soon the condition can be detected and do not pass
      it to less(1)
    * makewhatis(8): handle both dangling symlinks and .so links
      in manual page directories more gracefully
    * man.cgi(8): for invalid queries and for valid queries returning
      no result, return the appropriate 40x status code rather than 200
    * tbl(7) -T utf8: improved rendering of horizontal lines
    * mdoc(7) -T html: format .Nd with <span> rather than <div>
    * mdoc(7) -T lint: do not warn about $Mdocdate$ without an actual date
    * mdoc(7) -T lint: do not complain about function types of the
      form "ret_type (fname)(args)", but otherwise check names more strictly
       --- MINOR BUGFIXES ---
    * man(1): do the search for each name independently, and show the
      results in the order of the command line argument
    * man(1): when asking for a single manual page by name, prefer
      file name matches over .Dt/.TH matches over first NAME matches
      over later NAME matches, but do not change the ordering for
      apropos(1) nor for man -a
    * roff(7): when calling an empty macro, do not clobber existing arguments
    * mdoc(7) .Bl -column: parse Macro in .It "word<tab>word" Ta word Macro<eol>
    * -T html: remove some spurious line breaks, in particular inside <pre>
    * move some code out of the giant main() into separate functions
      doing one well-defined task each
    * clearly separate parser state (struct curparse) and formatter state
      (struct outstate), don't mix them in the same struct
    * in the HTML formatter, assert(3) that no HTML nesting violation occurs
    * let html_close_paragraph() close any phrasing context
