The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of
version 172 of diffoscope.
diffoscope tries to get to the bottom of what makes files or
directories different. It will recursively unpack archives of many
kinds and transform various binary formats into more human-readable
form to compare them. It can compare two tarballs, ISO images, or PDF
just as easily.
Version 172 includes the following changes:
* If zipinfo(1) shows a difference but we cannot uncover a difference within
the underlying .zip or .apk file, add a comment and show the binary
comparison. (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#246)
* Make "error extracting X, falling back to binary comparison E" error
Version 172 is available from Debian unstable as well as PyPI, and
will shortly be available on other platforms surely. More details can
be found here:
… but source tarballs may be located here:
The corresponding Docker image may be run via (for example):
$ docker run --rm -t -w $(pwd) -v $(pwd):$(pwd):ro \
registry.salsa.debian.org/reproducible-builds/diffoscope a b
diffoscope is developed within the "Reproducible builds" effort.
