An updated sed package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The sed package provides is a stream or batch (non-interactive) editor that takes text as input, performs an operation or a set of operations on the text, and outputs the modified text.
Prior to this update, the is_selinux_disabled() function was not correctly checked. With this update, this check returns the correct value and now the check works as expected.
Prior to this update, the behavior of the i/--in-place option for symlinks and hardlinks was not clearly documented. With this update, the manpage and the user documentation has been improved and this problem is resolved.
All sed users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
