The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of diffoscope
169. This version includes the following changes:
[ Chris Lamb ] * Optimisations: - Use larger buffer/block sizes when extracting files from libarchive- based archives. - Use a much-shorter CSS class (instead of "diffponct") to dramatically reduce uncompressed HTML output. * Logging improvements: - Don't emit "Unable to stat file" warning/debug messages; we have entirely-artificial directory entries such as ELF sections which, of course, never exist as filesystem files. - Don't emit a "Returning a FooContainer" logging message - we already emit "Instantiating a FooContainer" one and are unlikely to fail in the middle. - Format the report size logging messages when generating HTML reports. - Add the target directory when logging which directory we are extracting containers to. * Miscellaneous: - Ignore "--debug" and similar arguments when creating a (hopefully useful) temporary directory. - Ensure all internal temporary directories have useful names. - Clarify a comment regarding diffoscope not extracting excluded files. [ Vagrant Cascadian ] * Skip a DEX-related test if the "procyon" tool is unavailable.
