groff 1.22.3 has been released.

It is available from

and mirrors of that site (see list of mirror sites at  Current development snapshots are
available from the git repository at

groff is the GNU implementation of troff, a document formatting system. 
Included in this release are implementations of troff, pic, eqn, tbl, grn,
refer, -man, -mdoc, -mom, and -ms macros, and drivers for PostScript, PDF,
TeX DVI format, HP LaserJet 4 printers, Canon CAPSL printers, HTML and XHTML
format (beta status), and typewriter-like devices.  Also included is a
modified version of the Berkeley -me macros, the enhanced version gxditview
of the X11 xditview previewer, and an implementation of the -mm macros.

See below for the relevant snippet from the NEWS file.

Please report bugs using the bug tracker available from the project
page at





o X11 resources for `gxditview', which were previously installed in
  /usr/X11/lib/X11/app-defaults no matter which `prefix' was set, are
  now installed in appresdir=$prefix/lib/X11/app-defaults.  If
  `appresdir' is not a standard X11 resource directory, the environment
  variable XFILESEARCHPATH should be set to this path.  The standard
  default directories depends on the system `libXt'.  Common directories

  Note that if the option `--with-appresdir' is passed to `configure',
  the `prefix' will not be added to `appresdir'.


o This new preprocessor (contributed by Bernd Warken) allows embedding of
  code for GNU LilyPond (, a music typesetter.  The
  data gets automatically processed and embedded as EPS images.


o Bernd Warken contributed a new preprocessor to handle Perl code that can
  be evaluated and then processed by groff.


o Another preprocessor from Bernd Warken to pretty-print Pinyin syllables
  like `guo2wang2' as `guówáng'.


o The pdfroff utility script now activates its `--no-toc-relocation' option
  by default, unless a request similar to:

     .if !\n[PHASE] .tm pdfroff-option:set toc_relocation=enabled

  is invoked during input file processing; (`.if !\n[PHASE] ...' ensures
  that the effect of the `.tm' request is restricted to the document setup
  phase of processing, as pdfroff sets it to 1 or 2 in the output phase,
  but leaves it unset in the setup phase).

  The bundled `spdf.tmac' macro package, which implicitly activates
  `-mpdfmark' for `ms' macro users, ensures that TOC relocation is
  appropriately enabled, when the `.TC' macro is invoked.

Macro Packages

o The -mom macro package now has full support for eqn, pic, and tbl, as well
  as captioning and labelling of pdf images and preprocessor output.  Lists
  of Figures, Equations, and Tables can now be autogenerated.  PDF_IMAGE has
  a new FRAME option.

o A French introduction to the -me macro package has been added (file

o In -mdoc, command %C is now available, providing a city or place
