The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of
version 160 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 160 includes the following changes:
* Check that pgpdump is actually installed before attempting to run it.
Thanks to Gianfranco Costamagna (locutusofborg). (Closes: #969753)
* Add some documentation for the EXTERNAL_TOOLS dictionary.
* Ensure we check FALLBACK_FILE_EXTENSION_SUFFIX, otherwise we run pgpdump
against all files that are recognised by file(1) as "data".
Version 160 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.
