diffoscope 82 source package in Ubuntu


diffoscope (82) experimental; urgency=medium

  [ Chris Lamb ]
  * New features:
    - Add support for comparing Pcap files. (Closes: #858867)
    - Add support for .docx and .odt files via docx2txt & odt2txt.
      (Closes: #859056)
    - Add support for PGP files via pgpdump. (Closes: #859034)
    - Add support for comparing Ogg Vorbis files.
  * Bug fixes:
    - Don't crash on invalid archives; print a useful error instead.
      (Closes: #833697)
    - Ensure tests and the runtime environment can locate binaries in
      /usr/sbin (eg. tcpdump)
  * Tests:
    - Ensure that PATH is modified.
    - Ensure @tool_required raises RequiredToolNotFound.
    - Don't assume that /sbin/init exists; locate any /sbin binary manually and
      then test for that. This should prevent FTBFS on travis-ci.org.
    - Show packages installed in report output.
  * Misc:
    - comparators.bzip2: Don't print error output from bzip2 call.
    - comparators.pcap: Show the delta, not the absolute time.
    - Use /usr/share/dpkg/pkg-info.mk over manual calls to dpkg-parsechangelog
      in debian/rules.
    - Document PYTHONPATH usage when running tests in README.Source.
    - Add internal documentation for @tool_required decorator.

diffoscope: in-depth comparison of files, archives, and directories

 diffoscope will try to get to the bottom of what makes files or directories
 different. It will recursively unpack archives of many kinds and transform
 various binary formats into more human readable form to compare them. It can
 compare two tarballs, ISO images, or PDF just as easily. The differences can
 be shown in a text or HTML report.
 diffoscope is developed as part of the “reproducible builds” Debian
