The current version of lynx is 2.8.5

It's available at
2.8.6 Development & patches:

2004-05-23 (2.8.6dev.4)
* use puts() rather than printf() in some messages to avoid chance of "%" in
  the translation -TD
* add experimental option --enable-japanese-utf8 for using libiconv for
  Japanese and UTF-8 -TH, TD
* update makelynx.bat -Victor Schneider
* modify configure script CF_ADD_CFLAGS to put definitions of quoted strings
* fixes from Thorsten Glaser:
  + check for arc4random as a possible random function.
  + modify configure script CF_CHECK_CACHE to look for config.guess in
    $ac_aux_dir if it is not in the source directory.
* fix naming conflict with AS_cmp() function when NOT_ASCII is defined -PG
* read user's ".newsauth" file for news-server authentication information
  (prompted by A R Vener request) -TD
* modify HTSaveAndExecute() to check first for result from HTFileSuffix()
  before choosing between BIN_SUFFIX and HTML_SUFFIX.  This allows the PDF
  viewer on OS X to get the proper suffix (.pdf) rather than .bin -PG, TD
* filter out extra screen-repainting when a charset change is made -IZ
* update README and other documentation to reflect new mailing list -TD
* add PREFERRED_ENCODING to lynx.cfg, along with an options-menu selection for
  this, to set "Accept-Encoding:" string -TD
* add PREFERRED_MEDIA_TYPES to lynx.cfg, corresponding to the option for
  HTFilterPresentations().  A minimal set of media types is used by default,
  though the old behavior can be selected -TD
* modify HTFilterPresentations() to use new option menu entry for specifying
  what parts of the user- and system-mailcap data to use in Accept's.  The
  intent is to provide easily managed subsets of the Accept string, to work
  with servers that do not accept long Accept strings (prompted by discussion
  on lynx-dev mailing list) -TD
* Remove logic from HTFilterPresentations() which reduced the Accept strings
  based on wildcards since RFC 2616 says wildcards are lower precedance than
  other settings -TD
* improve matching for mailcap test-commands in HTInit.c by eliminating
  unnecessary whitespace with TrimCommand() -TD
* remove obsolete note about SSL patches in lynx_url_support.html -TD
