Gidday

I've released man-pages-3.10.

This release is now available for download at:

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/docs/man-pages
or ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/docs/man-pages

(The very latest version of man-pages is always available via git, at
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/docs/man-pages/man-pages.git .)

The online changelog is available at
http://www.kernel.org/doc/man-pages/changelog.html
(blogged at
http://linux-man-pages.blogspot.com/2008/10/man-pages-311-is-released.html)
and the current version of the pages is browsable at
http://www.kernel.org/doc/man-pages/

An abridged version of the changes in this release that may be of
particular interest to readers of this list is provided below.

Cheers,

Michael
