Our documentation needs to be updated for DWARF4 support:

  • Changeset [r3029] introduced a new API dwarf_next_cu_header_c() and deprecated dwarf_next_cu_header_b(). We need manual page changes, and an update to the [libdwarf] wiki page.

    It appears the man pages have been committed; is it only the wiki update remaining?
