I wonder… the dev versions have been more stable than other projects’
releases since at least 2.8.3dev.* so… IMHO lynx doesn’t even really
need releases, except for publicity reasons. There are very few things
which break, such as the UTF-8 stuff in dev.12, even though we’re all
humans and TD has about as much work as I do…

Anyway, the GnuTLS version seems to be a little weird (unless this is
a bug in lynx-cur in Debian):
        $ lynx
works fine with OpenSSL, provided that the Root CA certifi-
cate is located in /etc/ssl/certs/5ed36f99.0 whereas the GnuTLS built
needs to
① # cat /etc/ssl/certs/* >/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
② uncomment that line in /etc/lynx-cur/lynx.cfg
③ it now works with but not
  so the GnuTLS build doesn’t recognise X.509v3 subjectAltName… I had
  thought Joey ported my code to do that from OpenSSL to GnuTLS?

That was with 2.8.7dev.12-2 from sid (

I might end up packaging a lynx built against OpenSSL myself…
