I am pleased to announce the release of GNU ed 1.7.

This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature by appending ".sig" to the URL.

Changes in version 1.7:

* Show the "Try 'ed --help' for more information." message if a bad option is given in 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.

* Configure option "--datadir" has been renamed to "--datarootdir" to follow GNU Standards.

  * The target "install-bin" has been added to the Makefile.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden

This version is also available in lzip format. If your distro doesn't yet distribute the lzip program, you can download it from

If you are packaging ed for a distribution, please, try to use the lzipped source tarball, as this can improve the support for the lzip format in packaging systems. Thanks.
