The current version of lynx is 2.8.7

It's available at
2.8.8 Development & patches:

2011-06-12 (2.8.8dev.9)
* modfy cfg2html to add ".url" directive for referencing RFC's etc -TD
* document blat/blatj usage in lynx.cfg -TD
* add/use WriteStreamTitle(), to provide doctype for cookie-jar page, used to
  help validate the page -TD
* improve readability of cookie-jar page by showing the unescaped cookie
  values, other minor formatting changes -TD
* modify cookie domain-matching to accommodate RFC 6265, which states that a
  leading dot on a domain attribute should be discarded (report by Sebastien
  Hinderer) -TD
* integrate most of the changes from patch in 2.8.6rel.4 package at -TH, TD
  + provide toggle between normal/fullscreen
  + ifdef'd changes for FEP.
  + correct a message translation in ja.po
  + modify Xsystem.c to not use MinGW's system() call.
  + add three items to lynx.cfg
  + replace ifdef's for CONV_JISX0201KANA_JISX0208KANA with configuration
    variable conv_jisx0201kana
  + modify makefile.bcb and lynx.rsp to use openssl and intl libraries.
  + add feature ifdef'd with USE_PROGRAM_DIR which adds fallback definitions
    for pathnames to use the directory of lynx.exe
  + add check for unsafe filenames in DOS/Windows, e.g., those that correspond
    to a device.
* update command-line syntax for the blat mailer, to work with blat 2.6.2 -TD
* change default in makelynx.bat to assume blat rather than blatj, because
  the latter does not provide a way to authenticate user/password on a mail
  server -TD
* change #define's for addrlist-page and alt-bindings to reflect their
  non-experimental status -TD
* change default for --enable-addrlist-page configure option to enabled -TD
* modify blat/blatj configuration so that support for both is compiled-in
  for DOSPATH configurations.  Add "-altblat" option to select blat vs blatj.
  Define USE_ALT_BLAT_MAILER to specify which is the default (prompted by
  report by LarryL) -TD
* correct an interaction between LYCloseOutput() and LYRemoveTemp() as used in
  send_file_to_mail(), to allow a temporary file to be closed and used by
  external program before removing it -TD
* modify lkcstring_to_lkc() to accept hex/octal values, allowing those in the
  KEYMAP configuration as suggested by the commented lines in lynx.cfg (report
  by Richie Wood) -TD
* build-fix for DEC C 5.x with _DECC_V4_SOURCE defined, i.e., missing
  declaration of "off_t" (report/analysis by Rod Reiger) -TD
* build-fixes for Alpha VMS V8.3 with C V7.1-015, based on lynx 2.8.7
  development snapshot (report/analysis by Scott Harrod) -TD
* improve scripts/, to handle translation of octal escapes in the
  approximation comments -TD
* amend implementation of "readonly" attribute from 2.8.7dev.10 to distinguish
  it from "disabled" (report by David Paschal) -TD
* amend change to cookie prefix matching from Debian #460108.  The discussion
  overlooked this definition from RFC 2109:
   Path   Defaults to the path of the request URL that generated the
          Set-Cookie response, up to, but not including, the
          right-most /.
  In that context, lynx was correct to extract the default "path" attribute
  rather than
  as asserted in the report.  However, lynx warned unnecessarily (according to
  the bug report) about the given path attribute.  Deciding whether to suppress
  this warning is under control of the user via the lynx.cfg setting
  COOKIE_QUERY_INVALID_DOMAINS since 2.8.2dev.16 (report by Owen Leibman) -TD
* add eo.po (Esperanto) from
* modify format of ADVANCED_COOKIE_CONFIRMATION message in nl.po per guideline
  to allow localized single-letter responses to prompt (report by Jurgen
  Gaeremy) -TD
* add configure check for <bsd/random.h>, used in Debian package -TD
* modify src/tidy_tls.c to use gnutls_priority_set_direct() in preference to
  various access functions, to eliminate deprecation warnings (report by
  Andreas Metzler) -TD
* updated several configure script macros (TD):
* update config.guess (2011-01-01), config.sub (2011-04-01)
