diffoscope 146 released

30 May 2020 — Chris Lamb

The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of diffoscope version 146. This version includes the following changes:

[ Chris Lamb ]
* Refactor .changes and .buildinfo handling to show all details (including
  the GPG header and footer components), even when referenced files are not
  present. (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#122)
* Normalise filesystem stat(2) "birth times" (ie. st_birthtime) in the same
  way we do with stat(1)'s "Access:" and "Change:" times to fix a
  nondetermistic build failure on GNU Guix.
  (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#74)
* Drop the (default) subprocess.Popen(shell=False) keyword argument so that
  the more unsafe shell=True is more obvious.
* Ignore lower vs. upper-case when ordering our file format descriptions.
* Don't skip string normalisation in Black.

[ Mattia Rizzolo ]
* Add a "py3dist" override for the rpm-python module (Closes: #949598)
* Bump the debhelper compat level to 13 and use the new
  execute_after_*/execture_before_* style rules.
* Fix a spelling error in changelog.

[ Daniel Fullmer ]
* Mount GuestFS filesystem images readonly.

[ Jean-Romain Garnier ]
* Prevent an issue where (for example) LibarchiveMember's has_same_content
  method is called regardless of the actual type of file.
