EDelta is a fast XDelta-style binary differ, but optimized for executables which have a very systematic way of changing between versions. EDelta has not been thoroughly evaluated so far, but on one example (two versions of Vim) it produces a 30kB delta where XDelta needs 250kB.

My personal use for edelta is to quickly deploy Linux kernels from my development-laptop to my test-machines, especially when working over my slow ADSL line at home. I frequently see factor of 100 speedups compared to shipping the whole file.

What's New in 0.9e Stable Release:

This release adds a -q switch, better arguments parsing, and an improved version of the epatch script for remote patching using SSH.

What's New in 0.10a Development Release:

This version adds the -le switch, which provides better compression on Intel and other little-endian platforms.
It also fixes a few bugs.
