The current version of lynx is 2.8.8

It's available at
2.8.9 Development & patches:


2017-04-28 (2.8.9dev.12)
* correct logic in cell2char(), which gave up too early in determining the
  number of cells needed for a multibyte string in the editable text-fields
  (Debian #841155) -TD
* improve manual page discussion of environment variables, prompted by
  comments in Debian #791452, which overlooked the fact that details of proxy
  behavior are found in the user guide -TD
* cleanup some of the user's guide formatting, e.g., for quote-characters -TD
* consistently use "_" in command-line options table and manual page, to work
  with program logic that treats "-" as "_", but not the reverse (report by
  Larry Hines) -TD
* improved several configure macros:  CF_ADD_CFLAGS, CF_CC_ENV_FLAGS,
* modify Windows makefile to allow SSL_LIBS and SSL_DEFS to be overridden,
  reflecting naming-incompatibility in recent OpenSSL development -TD
* modify ncurses-specific code to allow its TERMINAL struct to be opaque -TD 
* refine special case of server Content-Type from 2.8.7dev.11 changes to
  decompress files offered for download when the server has gzip'd them
  (report by TH) -TD
* amend comparision from 2.8.8dev.10 changes to handle slang specially
  (report/testcase by TH) -TD
* minor cleanup of UCDomap.c -TD
* build-fix for color-style with leak-checking -TD
* amend merge/fixes from
  as well as problem introduced by 2.8.8dev.6 cleanup -TH
* update ca.po, from
* tidy whitespace in lynx.cfg (report by David Niklas)
* fix two more typos in the list of ENABLE_LYNXRC in lynx.cfg -TD
* remove a repeated item for SEND_USERAGENT from lynx.cfg (Larry Hynes)
* accept userinfo in a URL, subject to override by -auth option or -pauth
  options.  According to RFC-3986, this is deprecated, but testing shows other
  clients support it -TD
* fix several minor warnings reported by Coverity -TD
* remove redundant asserts which follow a check that leads to outofmem(),
  added in 2.8.8dev.4 to appease clang 2.6, since clang 3.x understands
  no-return function declarations -TD
* when converting host+params to idna, temporarily separate the params to
  avoid a warning from idna_to_ascii_8z() -TD
* improve warning messages from 2.8.9dev.11 fixes when stripping user/password,
  dropping an unnecessary message and fixing a case where all-punctuation
  user name was not logged (report by Axel Beckert) -TD
* update config.guess (2017-03-05), config.sub (2017-02-07)
