The current version of lynx is 2.8.5

It's available at
2.8.6 Development & patches:

2005-10-17 (2.8.6dev.14)
* add configure script support for large files; some changes made be needed to
  the C code in dev.15 to exploit this -TD
* work around part of the forms-menu extra wrapping from dev.12 by adjusting
  text-field maximum size in HText_beginInput().  There is still wrapping of
  options lists, which has to be treated differently.  The cause for this
  is the fix made to HText_appendCharacter() in dev.12 -TD
* extend experimental option --enable-japanese-utf8, allowing lynx to convert
  EUC-JP and Shift_JIS strings to UTF-8 -TH
* modify CF_BUILD_CC to avoid clobbering environment variable $BUILD_CC
  (from ncurses changes) -TD
* remove special case in CF_XOPEN_SOURCE which suppresses _XOPEN_SOURCE
  definition for Darwin (request by Emanuele Giaquinta)
* fix an off-by-one error in comparison in HText_appendCharacter(), from dev.12
  changes which showed up as wrapped lines in the options menu -TD
* use h_addr_list[0] rather than h_addr in HTTCP.c for POSIX compatibility
  (Emanuele Giaquinta)
* remove references to LIBCMU in HTTCP.c, since it is long obsolete -TD
* force a newline in HTML_end_element() after a </pre>, which causes lines
  containing only whitespace before the </pre> to display a new line, rather
  than putting that whitespace before text that follows the </pre> (report by
  Thorsten Glaser for -TD
* improve fix for LYstartPopup() in dev.6 by keeping the menu width as-is and
  adjusting its position rather than simply using the full screen-width when
  the first try fails (report by Gene Small) -TD
* correct logic in lynx_default_colors() so the color-style configuration does
  not attempt to use default colors on a terminal which does not support it
  (report by Bryan Henderson) -TD
* add/improve limit checks in HTLex.c -Ulf Harnhammar, TD
* ifdef'd out unused code in HTGroup.c -TD
* eliminate fixed-size buffers in LYExpandHostForURL() to guard against
  buffer overflow resulting from too-long domain prefix/suffix data from
  lynx.cfg (report by Ulf Harnhammar, CAN-2005-3120) -TD
* add a check for missing ':' in gopher response, to recover from the error
  (patch by Ulf Harnhammar)
* eliminate fixed-size buffers in HTrjis() and related functions to avoid
  potential buffer overflow in nntp pages (report by Ulf Harnhammar) -TD
* correct "escape" character used in HTMake822Word, which was literally an
  ASCII escape character rather than the RFC-822 backslash from 2.8.2dev.3
  changes (report by Frederic Briere, Debian #318034) -TD
* fix:  when first "option" element of "select" had "disabled" attribute, Lynx
  turned the entire "option/choice list" UNMODIFIABLE.  The "disabled"
  attribute of later "option" elements within the same "select" did not have
  this effect.  If the "disabled" attribute is honored, it should disable only
  that element, not parent element or sibling elements (report by Paavo
  Hartikainen) -TD
* make CF_TAR_OPTIONS configure macro work with DJGPP by using $EXEEXT -DK
* update config.guess (2005-09-19) and config.sub (2005-07-08)
* configure script updates from tin and ncurses -TD
* modify LYwaddnstr() to avoid sign-extension from changes in dev.12 (report
  by FLWM) -TD
* modify initialization so that
        cat options.txt | lynx -
  will allow interactive use (report by Arne Kowallik) -TD
* add NO_MARGINS and NO_TITLE to lynx.cfg (request by Stef Caunter) -TD
* adjust line-position for form fields when -notitle option is used (report by
  Arne Kowallik) -TD
