The current version of lynx is 2.8.6

It's available at
2.8.7 Development & patches:

2008-09-21 (2.8.7dev.10)
* remove rw.po, since the translation project no longer supplies it -TD
* implement "readonly" attribute for TEXTAREA and TEXT fields -TD
* update Lynx's tables of HTML attributes to cover (except for events) the
  keywords from HTML 4.01 -TD
* modify initial active link in download-page to be the first download
  action rather than the "help" link which is provided in Novice mode
  (Debian #376259) -PBM, TD
* implement "chunked" transfer-encoding to work with servers that ignore the
  version number in HTTP get's -TD
* change initialization of trace file, handing this during the first part of
  argument parsing along with -help and -version, to show steps done for
  initialization of presentors, etc -TD
* minor fix to LYstartPopup() to handle a case where the popup menu was too
  large for the screen -TD
* fixes for srcdir!=objdir (report by FLWM) -TD
* modify to work from subdirectory, e.g., its parameter would be
  "../" -TD
* set POSIX locale for and since they use character
  ranges -TD
* add switch -xhtml-parsing and lynx.cfg XHTML_PARSING setting to control
  whether the extensions for XHTML 1.0 are used (prompted by bug report by
  FLWM, as well as discussion on lynx-dev) -TD
* modify external editing of TEXTAREA to not do tab-conversion -TD
* modify LYhighlight() to limit display of multicolumn characters -TD
* rewrite LYRefreshEdit(), to display multibyte/multicolumn characters properly
  when using wide-character curses -TD
* revise introductory comment written to ".lynxrc" (Debian #461158) -TD
* discard anchor's post_data field in HTLoadDocument() if Lynx is about to
  reload a document.  That would happen if the result of the form includes a
  link back to the form.  Removing the data causes Lynx to prompt the user,
    Resubmit POST content to http://localhost/cgi-bin/ ? (y/n)
  to offer the user the choice between revisiting form or re-POST'ing the
  data that was on the form (report by Andreas K Foerster) -TD 
* fixes for LYHighlight() when the highlighted text is empty -TD
* translate named entities, etc., for "content" field of refresh-URL, cf:
  2.8.5dev.13 (report by Ivan Shmakov) -TD
* suppress computation in TrimmedLength() for source-view, which is not needed
  for Debian #204515 (patch by Mike Knight)
* add check-po rule to po/makefile -TD
* modify top-level makefile to work with configure --srcdir -TD
* add update-po rule to top-level makefile -TD
* update fr.po, nl.po, tr.po, vi.po, zh_TW.po,sv.po from
* parse doctype for xhtml, to tell when empty tags such as "<textarea />" can
  be discarded (report by Nils Dagsson Moskopp) -TD
* parse xml processing-instruction to turn on UTF-8 decoding, as well as
  disable upper/lower case transforming in source view (discussion on
  lynx-dev) -TD
* fix typo in Lynx_users_guide.html (report by Kristof Zelechovski)
* minor fix to documentation in lynx.cfg -PW
* use off_t rather than long for representing file sizes, e.g., when used to
  print progress messages (reports by LP, Tomas Liska, TG, PG) -TD
* use dtd_util to replace most of HTMLDTD.h and HTMLDTD.c with source generated
  from the existing tables in those files -TD
* add program dtd_util which can be used to dump the SGML tables in readable
  form -TD
* change calls to LYhandlePopupList() to turn on (or off) numbering when
  keypad_mode is not NUMBERS_AS_ARROWS -PBM
* move close of session-file outside ifdef for VLINK_IN_SESSION, closing
  session file properly if that ifdef is disabled.  Add a null-pointer check
  for visited links that are saved -PBM
* make auto_session and session_file configurable with ENABLE_LYNXRC -PBM
* separate configure "--enable-sessions" option from "--enable-session-cache"
  option -PBM
* add ncurses scroll-wheel support, which requires the extended-mouse configure
  option of ncurses (Debian #476394) -TD
  Caveat:  if running on a local terminal, setting the ESCDELAY environment
  variable to 0 (zero) helps, since the event rate is rather high.  That would
  not help on a network with delays (this is true of all text applications that
  use xterm's mouse protocol, such as gpm and ncurses).
* adapt/extend parsdate.y from tin to improve parsing of cookie expiration
  times (Debian #480144) -TD
* update de.po (patch by Fabian Fingerle)
