The current version of lynx is 2.8.5

It's available at
2.8.6 Development & patches:

2004-10-10 (2.8.6dev.6)
* highlight the target and pause for 20 milliseconds when selecting a link with
  the mouse -GV
* improve layout of options-menu and info-page for multibyte character sets by
  computing the extent of the labels.  This works only for wide-character
  curses (this addresses part of Debian #240069) -TD
* improve check in LYstartPopup() for case where a window would be created too
  far right to be entirely visible.  ncurses changes in 20040417 to allow
  windows to extend beyond the terminal limits exposed this problem (which may
  have occurred with other versions of curses).  Older versions of ncurses
  would return an error in this case (forcing lynx to do the proper layout),
  obscuring the actual problem.  Noticed that the same problem applies to slang
  configuration, and applied a comparable fix there too -TD
* modify HTConfirmCookie() to ensure the translator's note is copied into the
  lynx.pot file, by adding a gettext("Y/N/A/V") call after the comment -TD
* remove references in to the "intl" subdirectory since that is no
  longer packaged with lynx -TD
* modify column limits, allowing text to be written to the last column on the
  screen.  This allows users to view text which is formatted for 80 columns
  without the last character of each line wrapping to the next line -TD
* minor fixes to fr.po (Debian #119751, and aspell) -TD
* remove newline from format in lookup_reject(), fixes a bug introduced in
  2.8.5dev.2 which caused traversal reject-lookups to fail -TD
* minor fixes to fr.po, cs.po and pt_BR.po to eliminate fatal errors as
  reported by "msgfmt -c -v" -TD
* minor fix to fr.po (Debian #271048, report/patch by Arnaud Giersch).
* update URL for "HTML Quick Reference Guide" in lynx_help_main.html (report
  by Jim Jackson).
* update hu.po from
* remove a "defined(gettext)" from the ifdef's in HTConfirmCookie(), since
  recent GNU gettext, e.g., 0.13.1, introduced an incompatible/undocumented
  change to make the function a macro which is defined in terms of dgettext()
  (Debian #204994, report by Mattias Ostergren).
* modify pumpData() in HTMIME.c to improve recovery when a charset is found
  that cannot be translated.  Before this change, the charset was not stripped
  from the format string, e.g.,
        text/html; charset=big5
  and since there would be no match for the format, lynx would offer to simply
  download the page (if interactive), or refuse to format (for dumps).
  Although the content of the page is unusable, the user can still navigate
  the page using the links which may be there (Debian #254603) -TD
* add -nonumbers option, which modifies the output of -dump to suppress the
  link-numbering (Debian #255571) -TD
* add -listonly option, which modifies the output of -dump to show only the
  list of links (Debian #255571) -TD
* modify treatment of symbolic links for ftp-URLs to show the link target, as
  with the local directory editor -TD
* correct sort-order of local directory listing, using the target of a symbolic
  link to determine whether it is grouped with files or directories (adapted
  from patch by Kees Cook) -TD
* modify template for temporary-directory name, adding "lynx" prefix (Debian
  #267356) -TD
* fixes for configure script macros used for --enable-nls when --srcdir is
  used (from bug report for dialog by Mike Castle) -TD
* improve configure script macro CF_XOPEN_SOURCE, ensuring that _POSIX_C_SOURCE
  is defined with a value (comment on comp.sys.stratus newsgroup) -TD
* reduce TRST_MAXROWSPAN and TRST_MAXCOLSPAN to 200, which is more plausible
  than 10000 by 1000 (discussion on lynx-dev related to report by Edgard
  Pineda) -TD
* modify LYShowInfo.c to entify most strings, and provide for alignment of
  fields in different locales -TD
