Not long after the release of 4.3, we learned about a bug that
could cause sed to segfault, so this is a bug-fix release,
along with some portability fixes and documentation additions.

Here is the sole NEWS entry:

** Bug fixes

  sed could segfault when invoked with specific combination of newlines
  in the input and regex pattern. [Bug introduced in sed-4.3]

Please give this a workout on any system you care about.
I expect to make a release very quickly. Possibly even tomorrow.
