Dear reader,

I'm happy to announce the release of wdiff 1.2.2.

Over a year after ist predecessor, this release updates the build
system. One may hope that this will help building wdiff on more recent

The translations for Vietnamese, Swedish, Estonian, Chinese
(traditional), Brazilian Portuguese and Russian were updated as well.
Thanks again to our 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.
