Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:
Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:
[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact. First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball. Then, run a command like this:
gpg --verify sed-4.5.tar.xz.sig
If that 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 7FD9FCCB000BEEEE
and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.
This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
* Noteworthy changes in release 4.5 (2018-03-31) [stable]
** Bug fixes
sed now fails when matching very long input lines (>2GB).
Before, sed would silently ignore the regex without indicating an
error. [Bug present at least since sed-3.02]
sed no longer rejects comments and closing braces after y/// commands.
[Bug existed at least since sed-3.02]
sed -E --posix no longer ignores special meaning of '+','?','|' .
[Bug introduced in the original implementation of --posix option in
sed -i now creates selinux context based on the context of the symlink
instead of the symlink target. [Bug present since at least sed-4.2]
sed -i --follow-symlinks remains unchanged.
sed now treats the sequence '\x5c' (ASCII 92, backslash) as literal
backslash character, not as an escape prefix character.
[Bug present since sed-3.02.80]
$ echo z | sed -E 's/(z)/\x5c1/' # identical to 's/(z)/\1/'
$ echo z | sed -E 's/(z)/\x5c1/'
