I've released man-db 2.11.1.


man-db contains an implementation of the man command, which is the
primary way of examining the on-line help files (manual pages).  Other
utilities provided include the whatis and apropos commands for searching
the manual page database, the manpath utility for determining the manual
page search path, and the maintenance utilities mandb, catman and
zsoelim.  The package requires a troff installation, such as groff (GNU
troff) to format and display the manual pages.

About this release


 * Transfer Git repository to


 * SECURITY: Replace `$` characters in page names with `?` when constructing
   `less` prompts.
 * Silence error message when processing an empty manual page hierarchy with
   a nonexistent cache directory.
 * `man(1)` now sorts whatis references below real pages, even if the whatis
   references are from a section with higher priority.


 * Add section `3type` to the default section list just after `2`.  This is
   used by the Linux man-pages package.
 * Recognize more Hungarian translations of the `NAME` section.

For full details, please see the ChangeLog file in the source
