The current version of lynx is 2.8.5

It's available at
2.8.6 Development & patches:

2005-12-18 (2.8.6dev.16)
* change configure option default for --enable-justify-elts to true -TD
* change default for JUSTIFY to "false" (suggested by Bela Lubkin) -TD
* update config.guess (2005-11-11) and config.sub (2005-11-13)
* print the contents of image maps, if any, at the end of a dump (Debian
  #335593) -TD
* fix off-by-one line calculation that allowed the last page to be blank
  (Debian #330413) -TD
* modify statusline() to retain one trailing blank if the given string has a
  trailing blank.  This makes prompts easier to read (report by Karl-Heinz
  Weirich) -TD
* modify pipe read in LYGetHostByName() to retry until either the pipe closes
  or the struct passed back from the child process completes.  This is needed
  for OS/2 EMX (report by Karl-Heinz Weirich) -TD
* strip unneeded " " from translation when building info page using
  wide curses (Debian #342877) -TD
* add scripts/, which can be used to generate test pages for the
  charsets from src/chrtrans/*.tbl -TD
* add ISO-8859-13 and ISO-8859-14 chrtrans tables, revise ISO-8859-10
  based on
  Change display name for ISO-8859-10 to indicate the region -TD
* add codepage 857 (DOSTurkish), since console-tools package provides a
  suitable font -TD
* improve UCSetBoxChars(), checking if the current character set does not
  match the character set inferred from the locale.  This reduces the number
  of cases where line-drawing in the options menu does not work -TD
* rename test/iso8859-1.html and test/iso88592.html to test/iso-8859-1.html
  and test/isoi-8859-2.html, corresponding to the proper MIME names to
  simplify test-scripts -TD
* update Linux console font support to use console-tools package (tested on
  Debian).  The configure script checks for consolechars and setfont programs
  (must find at least one).  The corresponding SETFONT_PATH can be set in
  lynx.cfg to provide a choice between the two -TD
* strip special characters such as '%' from parameters passed to external
  programs for EXTERNAL mechanism on Windows platform.  This is ifdef'd
  with WIN_EX (Takeshi Hataguchi).
* modify definition of addch_raw() to allow scrollbar to work with slang2
  (this only works on the Windows platform) -GV
* modify LYSysShell() to use $COMSPEC if $SHELL is not defined -GV
* workaround for codepage support on OS/2 by changing the effect of unctrl().
  Add/use new preferred function use_legacy_coding() to ncurses which provides
  the same effect with the wide-character ncursesw (report by Karl-Heinz
  Weirich) -TD
* fixes for de.po (Debian #313789, patch by Jens Seidel).
* add a null pointer check for HTCurSelectedOptionValue in 
  to improve handling of this fragment:
  (Alexey Dobriyan).
* add a null pointer check in HTML_TAB case of HTML_start_element() to handle
  this fragment:
  (Alexey Dobriyan).
* remove pointer to
  since it no longer has useful information about SSL for Lynx (Crouton).
* add description of configure --with-build-cc, etc., to INSTALLATION -TD
* modify Switch_Display_Charset() so the font-switching feature can be turned
  off at runtime, rather than silently re-enabling it every time a new page is
  viewed.  The automatic switching is enabled if the user has configured lynx
  to use one of the automatically-detected fonts -TD
* fix ifdef's to allow building --without-font-switch with OS/2 EMX -TD
* work around bug in PDCurses wrapping by adjusting LYcolLimit macro.  The
  dev.14 change to HText_appendCharacter() exposed this bug in the Options menu
  (report by Hataguchi Takeshi) -TD
* fix change to lynx_default_colors() from dev.14 change to work with the
  bright-blue.lss file (report by FLWM) -TD
* add a configure test for ctermid(), needed for OS/2 EMX (report by
  YANAGIHARA Nobuyuki) -TD
