The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of diffoscope
164. This version includes the following changes:
[ Chris Lamb ] * Truncate jsondiff differences at 512 bytes lest they consume the entire page. * Wrap our external call to cmp(1) with a profile (to match the internal profiling). * Add a note regarding the specific ordering of the new all_tools_are_listed test. [ Dimitrios Apostolou ] * Performance improvements: - Improve speed of has_same_content by spawning cmp(1) less frequently. - Log whenever the external cmp(1) command is spawn.ed - Avoid invoking external diff for identical, short outputs. * Rework handling of temporary files: - Clean up temporary directories as we go along, instead of at the end. - Delete FIFO files when the FIFO feeder's context manager exits. [ Mattia Rizzolo ] * Fix a number of potential crashes in --list-debian-substvars, including explicitly listing lipo and otool as external tools. - Remove redundant code and let object destructors clean up after themselves. [ Conrad Ratschan ] * Add a comparator for Flattened Image Trees (FIT) files, a boot image format used by U-Boot.
