The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of
version 235 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 235 includes the following changes:

  [ Akihiro Suda ]
  * Update .gitlab-ci.yml to push versioned tags to the container registry.
    (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope!119)

  [ Chris Lamb ]
  * Fix compatibility with PyPDF2. (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#331)
  * Fix compatibility with ImageMagick 7.1.
    (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#330)

  [ Daniel Kahn Gillmor ]
  * Update from PyPDF2 to pypdf. (Closes: #1029741, #1029742)

  [ FC Stegerman ]
  * Add support for Android resources.arsc files.
    (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope!116)
  * Add support for dexdump. (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#134)
  * Improve DexFile's FILE_TYPE_RE and add FILE_TYPE_HEADER_PREFIX, and remove
    "Dalvik dex file" from ApkFile's FILE_TYPE_RE as well.

  [ Efraim Flashner ]
  * Update external tool for isoinfo on guix.
    (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope!124)
