I am pleased to announce the release of GNU ed 1.8.

GNU ed is an 8-bit clean, more or less POSIX-compliant implementation of the standard Unix line editor.

The homepage is at

The sources can be downloaded from or from your favorite GNU mirror.

The md5sums are:
af292b89343ea38adf6bcc06361994ee  ed-1.8.tar.lz
2268d2344b3c52d23730acb2e3c942fe  ed-1.8.tar.gz

This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature by appending ".sig" to the URL.

Changes in version 1.8:

* Ed now stops reading stdin when reaching real End Of File the first time. (Before it needed to reach EOF twice).

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden

This version is also available in lzip format. In the improbable case that lzip is not packaged in your distro, you can download it from

If you are packaging ed for a distribution, please, try to use the lzipped source tarball, as this can improve the support for the lzip format in packaging systems. Thanks.

Antonio Diaz, GNU ed maintainer.
