sed-4.7 released [stable]

Item posted by Jim Meyering <meyering> on Fri 21 Dec 2018 06:14:11 AM UTC.


Here's a snap release to fix a regression introduced in sed-4.6.
See the NEWS below for details:

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:
  http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/sed/sed-4.7.tar.xz
  http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/sed/sed-4.7.tar.xz.sig

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:
  https://ftpmirror.gnu.org/sed/sed-4.7.tar.xz
  https://ftpmirror.gnu.org/sed/sed-4.7.tar.xz.sig

[*] 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-4.7.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:
  Autoconf 2.69.197-b8fd7
  Automake 1.16a
  Gnulib v0.1-2302-g5d6a3cdd5

NEWS

* Noteworthy changes in release 4.7 (2018-12-20) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  Some uses of \b in the C locale and with the DFA matcher would fail, e.g.,
  the following would mistakenly print "123-x" instead of "123":
    echo 123-x|LC_ALL=C sed 's/.\bx//'
  Using a multibyte locale or certain regexp constructs (some ranges,
  backreferences) would avoid the bug.  [bug introduced in sed 4.6]
