-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
A new release of diffstat, 1.48-1, is available for those testing cygwin
1.7, leaving 1.47-1 as the previous version.
This is a new upstream release. It also includes a patch to recognize .xz
files in addition to .lzma files (which will probably be incorporated in
an upstream 1.49 sometime soon). From the CHANGES file, the upstream
changes since 1.47 are:
add decompression tests for lzma and pack file types.
check for zcat and uncompress in preference to "compress -dc".
modify to check the first few bytes of standard input, and use a
corresponding decompression utility if the stream appears to be
compressed. This requires making a temporary copy of the data
add -N option, to truncate filenames.
use getc_unlocked() rather than fgetc_unlocked()
modify to recognize Perforce-style diffs (patch by Ed Schouten).
update configure macros to improve compiler warning checks, use
$PATH_SEPARATOR rather than $PATH_SEP (for consistency with some
fix typo in configure --with-install-prefix option (report by
update config.guess, config.sub
See also /usr/share/doc/diffstat/.
diffstat reads the output of diff and displays a histogram of the
insertions, deletions, and modifications per-file. It is useful for
reviewing large, complex patch files.
