I'm happy to announce the release of wdiff 1.1.0.

Translations can now make use of plural forms. While this means a drastic improvement for some languages, it may also mean that some languages for which no such plural forms are available yet might be lacking user visible message strings, not only error messages, but also for e.g. statistics. You might want to check the translation status if your users have problems with English.

Other changes center around the use of pagers. We no longer auto-detect whether the output pager is less. If it is, it will now receive its arguments from the environment, not the command line. As we now pass console control sequences to less, instead of some simulated overstriking, it should be better at handling multibyte encodings like UTF-8. This hopefully fixes bug #34224. The old "--less-mode" is still available if explicitely selected.

The test suite used to test pagers had some portability problems, causing the tests (particularly the one using screen) to fail. This should be fixed now. If you encounter any errors, please contact the developers or file a bug report on Savannah.
