What's New in This Release:
- Support has been added for diff3-style merges and for most features of the "diff --git" format, including renames and copies, permission changes, and symlink diffs, but not including binary diffs.
- Filenames can now be double-quoted as C string literals.
- Normal patches are no longer applied to symlinks (this behavior can be reverted with the new "--follow-symlinks" option).
- Timestamps with timezones are now honored correctly.
