i have installed v3.26 of the faq on ctan, and on the faq web processor
at http://www.tex.ac.uk/faq

there are several minor improvements and corrections (see summary list
below) but nothing, i think, that's particularly important.

Web interface, etc.:
 The "default archive" (used in links from answers) is now mirror.ctan.org
