The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of
version 257 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 257 includes the following changes:

  [ James Addison ]
  * Parse the header and hunksize of diffs strictly before parsing the context
    below. (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#363)
  * Reformat code to comply with the latest version of Black (24.1.1).

  [ Chris Lamb ]
  * Expand the previous changelog entry to include the CVE number that was
    subsequently assigned.
  * Bump the miniumum Black requirement to run the "Black clean" test and make
    test_zip.py Black clean.

## Download

Version 257 is available from Debian unstable as well as PyPI, and
will shortly be available on other platforms surely. More details can
