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.
