The current version of lynx is 2.8.6

It's available at
2.8.7 Development & patches:

At the moment the web-server is offline (I'm guessing it is a disk problem).
So I put the patches and updated tarballs in the ftp area only:

2008-12-14 (2.8.7dev.11)
* add support for HTML5 rel=author in link (mailing list comments) -TD
* modify cookie-writing to not write if no cookies were read from the file
  and none are available (Debian #354282) -TD
* fix src/tidy_tls.c X509_get_issuer_name to actually take the issuer DN of the
  present certificate and not hope that it is the same as taking the subject DN
  of the "next" certificate which may or may not exist (Debian #499945, patch
  by Thomas Viehmann)
* modify exit code when doing a "-dump" to exit with error if the server
  returned an error status for the page (Debian #299711) -TD
* fix ipv6 literal command-line parsing (Debian #180654, analysis by Fabio
  Massimo Di Nitto) -TD
* extend configure macros CF_SSL and CF_GNUTLS to check for pkg-config, using
  that for the default if the corresponding openssl or gnutls packages are
  installed (suggested by PGNet) -TD
* add fi.po from
* update fr.po from
* correct handling of the option value from configure "--with-ssl", which was
  not being used in the search-list (report by PGNet) -TD
* update configure script macros -TD
  CF_CURSES_LIBS - add "pdcurses", e.g., to link with mingw
  CF_UTF8_LIB - use CF_FIND_LINKAGE to better work with BSD ports.
  CF_XOPEN_SOURCE - add case for dragonfly
* document width-limitation in manpage, fix a few stray 1024's still in the
  source (report by Barry Haddow) -TD
* add "read_timeout" to lynx.cfg, and -read_timeout option to command-line
  (prompted by Dries De Moor report on mailing list) -TD
* modify to handle a special case where the content-type is given as one of the
  compressed types, to check if the address (after stripping the file suffix
  for that compression) has a suffix that lynx could present -TD
  For example:
  would display the uncompressed "bar.html" rather than offering to download
  the file.  This also allows one to add SUFFIX commands to lynx.cfg to display
  the corresponding plain files.
  For example:
* workaround for STRING redefinition in parsdate.c on DJGPP -GV
* improve configure-check to determine proper fallback when no long-long
  printing format is available -TD
* update win32 makefiles/build scripts to add LYmktime, parsdate modules -TD
* update config.guess (2008-04-14), config.sub (2008-06-16)
