The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of diffoscope
147. This version includes the following changes:
[ Chris Lamb ] * New features: - Add output from strings(1) to ELF binaries. It is intended this will expose expose build paths that are hidden somewhere within the objdump(1) output. (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#148) - Add basic zsh shell tab-completion support. (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#158) * Bug fixes: - Prevent a traceback when comparing a PDF document that does not contain any metadata, ie. it is missing a PDF "/Info" stanza. (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#150) - Fix compatibility with jsondiff 1.2.0 which was causing a traceback and log the version of jsondiff we are using to aid debugging in the future. (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#159 - Fix an issue in GnuPG keybox handling that left filenames in the diff. - Don't mask an existing test name; ie. ensure it is actually run. * Reporting: - Log all calls to subprocess.check_output by using our own wrapper utility. (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#151) * Code improvements: - Replace references to "WF" with "Wagner-Fischer" for clarity. - Drop a large number of unused imports (list_libarchive, ContainerExtractionError, etc.) - Don't assign exception to a variable that we do not use. - Compare string values with the equality operator, not via "is" identity. - Don't alias an open file to a variable when we don't use it. - Don't alias "filter" builtin. - Refactor many small parts of the HTML generation, dropping explicit u"unicode" strings, tidying the generation of the "Offset X, Y lines modified" messages, moving to PEP 498 f-strings where appropriate, etc. - Inline a number of single-used utility methods.
