This has significantly less portability goop, has a tidied up code style, uses terminfo instead of termcap, and has stricter POSIX compliance. Many of our local changes have been accepted upstream: substantial remaining local changes are code to read help files from /usr/share rather than compiling them in, man page and help improvements, and some tweaks to the default options.

Users of the venerable text viewing program probably won't notice any immediate differences. Having a version that's actively maintained in base, however, can only be a good thing. Some fixes from the OpenBSD crew have already been upstreamed as well.
