I am pleased to announce the release of GNU ed 1.16.
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 For most purposes, however, it is superseded by full-screen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/
http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/ed/ or from your favorite GNU mirror.
