GNU ed 1.15-pre2 is ready for testing here

The sha256sum is:
01c43b16456b214da1d6862e3aa13a4831d5ad6ed5b77d58bbec8e81c4fc5598 ed-1.15-pre2.tar.lz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

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

The homepage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/ed/ed.html

Changes in this version:

* Address ',,' has been fixed to mean '$,$' instead of '1,$'. (Reported by Matthieu Felix).

* A 's' command that is part of a 'g' or 'v' command-list can again split a line by including a newline escaped with a backslash '\' in the replacement string. For this to work, the closing delimiter of the replacement string can't be omitted unless the 's' command is the last command in the list, because otherwise the meaning of the escaped newline would become ambiguous.

* Following a recent change in the posix standard, the 'c' command no longer accepts an address of 0, and the documentation for the 'i' command now explains that it treats address 0 as meaning "at the beginning of the buffer", instead of as a synonym for address 1.

* The configure script now accepts appending options to CFLAGS using the syntax 'CFLAGS+=OPTIONS'.
