The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of diffoscope
202. This version includes the following changes:
[ Chris Lamb ] * Don't fail if comparing a nonexistent file with a .pyc file (and add test). (Closes: #1004312) * Drop a reference in the manual page which claims the ability to compare non-existent files on the command-line. This has not been possible since version 32 which was released in September 2015. (Closes: #1004182) * Add experimental support for incremental output support with a timeout. Passing, for example, --timeout=60 will mean that diffoscope will not recurse into any sub-archives after 60 seconds total execution time has elapsed and mark the diff as being incomplete. (Note that this is not a fixed/strict timeout due to implementation issues.) (Closes: reproducible-builds/diffoscope#301) * Don't return with an exit code of 0 if we encounter device file such as /dev/stdin with human-readable metadata that matches literal, non-device, file contents. (Closes: #1004198) * Correct a "recompile" typo. [ Sergei Trofimovich ] * Fix/update whitespace for Black 21.12.
