The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of diffoscope
181. This version includes the following changes:
[ Chris Lamb ] * New features and bug fixes: - Don't require apksigner in order to compare .apk files using apktool. - Add a special-case to squshfs image extraction to not fail if we aren't root/superuser. (Closes: #991059) - Reduce the maximum line length to avoid O(n^2) Wagner-Fischer algorithm, which meant that diff generation took an inordinate amount of time. (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#272) - Include profiling information in --debug output if --profile is not set. - Don't print an orphan newline when the Black source code formatter self-test passes. * Tests: - Update test to check specific contents of squashfs listing, otherwise it fails depending on the test systems uid-to-username mapping in passwd(5). - Assign "seen" and "expected" values to local variables to improve contextual information in/around failed tests. * Misc changes: - Print the size of generated HTML, text (etc.) reports. - Profile calls to specialize and diffoscope.diff.linediff. - Update various copyright years.
