Dear wdiff users and other interested parties,

I'm happy to announce the wdiff 0.5.94 pre-release available at:

There have been many minor changes, mostly to translatable messages and
the build system. But there are two user-visible changes as well.

The first is a bug fix. wdiff can now cope with non-seekable input, e.g.
in the form of a bash command substitution, like the following:
  wdiff <(echo foo here bar) <(echo foo there bar)
Of course echo isn't particularly interesting, but you get the idea.

The second is a new feature: "wdiff -d" will now allow you to pass a
patch in unified diff format as input. This is useful if you want to
find the actual word changes in a diff generated by another program.

I'll also take this opportunity to introduce myself: I've been recently
appointed wdiff co-maintainer. I originally wrote the patches for the
features described above, and I hope I missed no user-visible changes
Denver made since 0.5.93. I hope to make a real stable release in the
near future, but there are still a few things to do before that.

 Martin von Gagern
