I am pleased to announce the release of GNU ed 1.15.
GNU ed is a line-oriented text editor. It is used to create, display,
modify and otherwise manipulate text files, both interactively and via
shell scripts. A restricted version of ed, red, can only edit files in
the current directory and cannot execute shell commands. Ed is the
"standard" text editor in the sense that it is the original editor for
Unix, and thus widely available. For most purposes, however, it is
superseded by full-screen editors such as GNU Emacs or GNU Moe.
The homepage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/ed/ed.html
The sources can be downloaded from http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/ed/

The sha256sum is:
This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature by
appending '.sig' to the URL. If the 'gpg --verify' command fails because
you don't have the required public key, then run this command to import it:
gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 8FE99503132D7742
Key fingerprint = 1D41 C14B 272A 2219 A739 FA4F 8FE9 9503 132D 7742
Changes in version 1.15:
* The list command has been fixed to print a backslash before every
'$' character within the text. (Reported by Ori Avtalion).
* Address ',,' has been fixed to mean '$,$' instead of '1,$'.
(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.
* Minor fixes have been made to the manual.
* The configure script now accepts appending options to CFLAGS using
the syntax 'CFLAGS+=OPTIONS'.
