The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of
version 168 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 168 includes the following changes:
* Don't call difflib.Differ.compare with very large inputs; it is at least
O(n^2) and makes diffoscope appear to hang.
* Don't use "Inheriting PATH of X" in debug log message; use "PATH is X".
* Correct the capitalisation of jQuery.
Version 168 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.
