This release includes:

 - Several security related fixes for nlist() reported by Daniel Hodson
   and one by Coverity Scan.
 - Preliminary and partial Windows porting, thanks to Aaron Dierking.
 - Fix for a leak in the vis family of functions.
 - Fix for a configure check to not unnecessarily link against librt.
 - General portability fixes for musl, uClibc, macOS and GNU/kFreeBSD.
 - New architectures support for nlist().
 - Switch the <err.h> *c() functions to be standalone and add err(),
   warn(), errx() and warnx() familiy of functions in case the system
   lacks them.
 - Several man page fixes.

The project got migrated to the FreeDesktop.Org GitLab instance [G]
and now we makes use of its CI to run the test suite on each push.
