Noted but until it is in beta I am not planning to release it.

The notes do not show anything critical

"less-527 has been released for BETA testing.
This version changes the new M command to take a mark letter, making it 
similar to the m command, except the M command marks the bottom line on 
the screen rather than top line. This version also adds a command ESC-m 
to remove a mark, fixes a bug that caused an erroneous binary file 
warning when viewing a UTF-8 file containing SGR sequences, and now 
correctly handles the keypad Enter key."
