Release Notes: "ed.texinfo" has been renamed "ed.texi", following the advice of automake.
Release Notes: The testsuite no longer feeds shell scripts to ed. The "configure" script now accepts options with a separate argument.
Release Notes: No user-visible changes were made. Ed now stops reading stdin when reaching the real End Of File the first time. Previously it needed to reach EOF twice.
Release Notes: Shows the "Try 'ed --help' for more information." message if a bad option is given on the command line. Quote characters in messages have been changed as advised by GNU Coding Standards. The description of address offsets in the manual and a link to the Bash manual have been fixed. The configure option "--datadir" has been renamed to "--datarootdir" to follow GNU Standards. The target "install-bin" has been added to the Makefile.
Release Notes: Displaying of null characters by the "l" command has been fixed. The condition deciding when to show the message "Newline appended" has been corrected. The "modified" flag is now set when reading a non-empty file into an empty buffer. An error that prevented using NUL characters in regular expressions has been fixed. Ed now signals an error if it can't create a shell process when executing a shell command. Ed now flushes stdout/stderr before reading a new command. All command-line options are now documented in the man page.
Release Notes: The "a", "c" and "i" commands have been fixed. (When used in a global command list, the commands following them in the list were ignored). The "e" command has been fixed. (It quitted when invoked a second time with a modified buffer). The new option "--restricted" has been added. "red" has been converted to a script invoking "ed --restricted". The description of ed in the manual has been changed. Obsolete POSIX tests have been removed from the testsuite.
Release Notes: The undo command has been fixed to restore the modified status of the buffer being edited. A race condition with user interrupt has been fixed in search_and_replace. The functions resize_line_buffer and resize_undo_buffer have been added to definitively fix the aliasing warnings. Some minor corrections have been made to the manual.
Release Notes: An aliasing related segfault that only occurs when overoptimizing with GCC on some architectures (alpha, sparc) has been fixed.
