I am pleased to announce the release of GNU ed 1.17.
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 For most purposes, however, it is superseded by full-screen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.
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

Key fingerprint = 1D41 C14B 272A 2219 A739 FA4F 8FE9 9503 132D 7742
Changes in version 1.17:
* The commands 'q' and 'Q' now work in a global command. (Reported by J.
* The new option '-E, --extended-regexp' has been added. It tells ed to
use extended regular expressions instead of the basic regular expressions
mandated by POSIX. (Suggested by Shawn Wagner).
* Ed now prints the file name in case of read or write error. (Reported
by Dan Jacobson).
