Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : xdelta
Version     : 1.1.3                      
Release     : 16.fc3                  
Summary     : A binary file delta generator and an RCS replacement library.
Description :
Xdelta (X for XCF: the eXperimental Computing Facility at Berkeley) is
a binary delta generator (like a diff program for binaries) and an RCS
version control replacement library. The Xdelta library performs its
work independently of the actual format used to encode the file and is
intended to be used by various higher-level programs such as XCF's
Project Revision Control System (PRCS). PRCS is a front end for a
version control toolset. Xdelta uses a binary file delta algorithm to
replace the standard diff program used by RCS.

Update Information:

xdelta shipped with FC3 isn't compiled with large file
support and uses obsolete glib-1.2 library. The libedsio
symbols are missing from the installed libxdelta library.

This release introduces xdelta ported to glib-2 and fixes
the noted issues.
