The program 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.

Today I'm announcing the release of wdiff 1.1.2. This new release so shortly after the 1.1.1 release aims to fix a build-time issue due to the removal of the gets function from the C language in the C11 standard. Praveen Kumar reported that this currently prevents bundling for Fedora. The fix is a backport of a single gnulib changeset. [...]

wdiff 1.1.1 released
     posted by gagern, Tue 22 May 2012 08:48:24 PM UTC

I'm happy to announce the release of wdiff 1.1.1.

This release works around an error in the formatting of the man page. The proper fix will be in 1.2.x, but as that requires a change to translatable strings, this release here will apply a patch instead.

There are some updates to translations as well: Danish and Vietnamese have been updated, and a Serbian translation newly added.
