GNU ed 1.18-pre2 is ready for testing here

The sha256sum is:
96176dc16c63449c736ecd9ae86821bd2efb6c07d9e706fca58c9972b40c2a40 ed-1.18-pre2.tar.lz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

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 For most purposes, however, it is superseded by full-screen editors such as GNU Emacs or GNU Moe.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

Changes in this version:

* The shell escape command (!) now removes the backslash from each escaped '%' character within the text of the shell command line.
(Reported by Martin Thomsen).

* The option '--strip-trailing-cr', which removes carriage returns at end of text lines when reading a file, has been added.

Antonio Diaz, GNU ed maintainer.
