 man-db (2.5.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release.
     - Remove /usr/X11R6/man from MANDATORY_MANPATH (closes: #413349).
     - man now supports the MANPAGER environment variable, overriding PAGER.
     - Resolve ambiguous error message when asking for a nonexistent manual
       page that might also be a section name (closes: #421481).
     - MANSEC -> MANSECT in German man(1) and catman(8) (closes: #430635).
     - Truncate apropos/whatis output to the terminal width by default
       (closes: #411721).
     - lexgrog now ignores alleged manual page names containing spaces, as
       these usually indicate parsing errors or ill-formed NAME sections and
       they clutter up apropos output badly.
     - Discard stderr from formatting processes when outputting to a pager,
       to avoid visual corruption from any error messages (closes: #372939).
     - Disallow sectional extensions of alphabetic sections, e.g. n and l
       from the default configuration (closes: #391977), and sectional
       extensions beginning with a digit (closes: #421481).
     - Suppress warnings in --quiet mode (closes: #348008, #378428, #411220;
       also closes: #334280 since that suggestion is no longer relevant).
     - If MAN_KEEP_FORMATTING is set in the environment, don't strip
       formatting characters with col (closes: #340673).
     - Implement and use a decompression library. This allows cat pages to be
       saved in the background while the pager is active (closes: #18452) and
       operation with a read-only /tmp (closes: #165499).
     - Add a configuration file flag (NOCACHE) to disable cat page caching
       (closes: #196642).
     - Add output keys to a hashtable, and skip any that have already been
       seen (closes: #259338).
     - Execute system utilities by command name rather than by full path
       (closes: #385651).
     - Add apropos -a/--and option to display only items matching all
       keywords (closes: #259340).
     - Adjust Finnish translation of "No manual entry for %s"
       (closes: #320108).
     - Create and use databases for non-English manual hierarchies
       (closes: #29448, #281811).
     - Improve per-locale directory handling. Directories such as "fr.UTF-8"
       may be used for occasions when it is appropriate to specify the
       character set but not the country, and so a full locale name is
     - There is a new "manconv" program which can try multiple possible
       encodings for a file, thus allowing UTF-8 manual pages to be installed
       in any directory even without an explicit encoding declaration.
     - Don't escape the hierarchy path while globbing; it isn't necessary and
       it causes problems for paths containing metacharacters
       (closes: #444187).
   * Use new configure options for external programs rather than hardcoding
     them in configure.ac.
   * Remove code in debian/rules to fiddle manual page paths for Debian,
     since the default of $LL.UTF-8 is now reasonable. (An
     announcement/discussion about what other Debian packages should do will
     be forthcoming shortly.)
   * Build-depend on zlib1g-dev so that we use zlib rather than gzip to
     decompress gzipped manual pages.
