New package: rdiff/librsync1/librsync-dev-0.9.7-1 -- rsync remote-delta algorithm
Wed Mar 5 15:38:00 GMT 2008
Three new packages, rdiff, librsync1, and librsync-dev are now
librsync is a free software library that implements the rsync
remote-delta algorithm. This algorithm allows efficient remote
updates of a file, without requiring the old and new versions to
both be present at the sending end. The library uses a "streaming"
design similar to that of zlib with the aim of allowing it to be
embedded into many different applications.
rdiff is a utility included with librsync to compute and apply
signature-based file differences.
