mlocate is a new locate implementation. The "m" stands for "merging",
because updatedb reuses the existing database to avoid rereading most of
the file system, which makes updatedb faster and does not trash the system
caches as much. The locate(1) utility is intended to be completely
compatible to slocate. It also attempts to be compatible to GNU locate,
when it does not conflict with slocate compatibility.
This release fixes "-" handling in database paths and adds some examples to
the man pages.
Release focus: Minor bugfixes
