Dear reader,

I'm happy to announce the release of wdiff 1.2.1.

We now have translations for Esperanto. There were also updates for many
others: Czech, German, Spanish, Finnish, Galician, Italian, Dutch,
Polish, Slovenian, Serbian, Swedish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese. Updates
to translations became neccessary due to a recent bug fix, but many of
these updates contained a number of improvements besides that required

This release uses more recent versions of autotools and gnulib. The
former avoids a security vulnerability in some dist* targets, and both
might help portability of this package.

In case you wonder about the version number: the 1.2.0 release was a
beta intended only for translators.

There were no modifications to the core code of the application. is the official
location of the release announcement, in case you want a URL to cite.

You can get the latest release of wdiff from or a GNU mirror of your choice.

GNU wdiff is a front end to diff for comparing files on a word per word
basis. A word is anything between whitespace. This is useful for
comparing two texts in which a few words have been changed and for which
paragraphs have been refilled. It works by creating two temporary files,
one word per line, and then executes diff on these files. It collects
the diff output and uses it to produce a nicer display of word
differences between the original files.
