There is a features.html page for every release at
It is a hand-edited text, discussed on lynx-dev when the release come.

Another option is trying to diff lynx.cfg and INSTALLATION
between your version and current [nearly all new features are configurable].

In fact, one may add a "history" link from lynxcfg_toc.html
to list new options added between releases starting 2.6 (IMHO),
it is not a big job.
