The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of diffoscope
167. This version includes the following changes:
* Temporary directory handling: - Ensure we cleanup our temporary directory by avoiding confusion between the TemporaryDirectory instance and the underlying directory. (Closes: #981123) - Use a potentially-useful suffix to our temporary directory based on the command-line passed to diffoscope. - Fix some tempfile/weakref interaction in Python 3.7 (ie. Debian buster). (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#239) - If our temporary directory does not exist anymore (eg. it has been cleaned up in tests, signal handling or reference counting), make sure we recreate it. * Bug fixes: - Don't rely on magic.Magic(...) to have an identical API between file's magic.py and PyPI's "python-magic" library. (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#238) - Don't rely on dumpimage returning an appropriate exit code; check that the file actually exists after we call it. * Codebase changes: - Set a default Config.extended_filesystem_attributes. - Drop unused Config.acl and Config.xattr attributes. - Tidy imports in diffoscope/comparators/fit.py. * Tests: - Add u-boot-tools to test dependencies so that salsa.debian.org pipelines actually test the new FIT comparator. - Strip newlines when determining Black version to avoid "requires black >= 20.8b1 (18.9b0\n detected)" in test output (NB. embedded newline). - Gnumeric is back in testing so re-add to test dependencies. - Use assert_diff (over get_data, etc.) in the FIT and APK comparators. - Mark test_apk.py::test_android_manifest as being allowed to fail for now. - Fix the FIT tests in buster and unstable.
