Frederik Tilmann submitted an update to the latexdiff package. Version: 1.3.2 2021-12-27 License: gpl3 Summary description: Determine and mark up significant differences between LaTeX files Announcement text:
# latexdiff ## API adaptions: - latexdiff now completes with exit code 0 after --help or --version command (see issue #248) ## New features / feature extensions - extend CUSTOMDIFCMD related postprocessing to deal properly with multiline commands, or a sequence of several commands in the same line (see github issue #204) - support for additional macros from import package (\import, \inputfrom, \includefrom, \subimport,\subinputfrom, \subincludefrom). Provided by janniklasrose in PR #243 (fixes #239) - replace default driver dvips->pdftex ## Bug fixes: - fix bug reported in issue #218 by replacing \hspace{0pt} after \mbox{..} auxiliary commands with \hskip0pt (IMPORTANT as old way apparently breaks latexdiff output under default setting with recent versions pdflatex) - fix issue #206 affecting proper markup of text commands which are not also safe cmds and have multiple arguments - fix issue #210 by adding \eqref (amsmath package) to the list of safe commands - fix bug reported in issue #168 mangled verbatim line environment - more ways to process \frac correctly with atomic arguments. Provided by julianuu PR #246 - fix a bug in biblatex mode, which prevented proper processing of modified \textcite (see: https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/555157/latexdiff-and-biblatex-citation-commands) - -h string fix: add -driver option # latexdiff-vc ## Bug fixes: - when setting config variables with the command lines it is now possible to use quotes to include spaces in the value, e.g. -c LATEX="pdflatex --shell-escape" - as --only-changes is not compatible with graphics markup, --graphics-markup=none is now set automatically when this option is selected - when --pdf or --postscript is select, then replace tildes in version names with underscores in output file (e.g. diffHEAD_1 instead of diff HEAD~1. This is necessary because pdflatex strips ~n strings at the end of the filename, when generating output file names # latexrevise ## New features - Introduce option -r / --replace which removes markup of the form \replaced{new text}{old text} in the changes package - Functionality -c option: if comment to be deleted is the last in the line replace new line by space character. This is done to avoid errors or unintended line breaks from empty lines after deletion (which are interpreted as \par)

latexdiff – Determine and mark up significant differences between LaTeX files

Latexdiff is a Perl script for visual mark up and revision of significant differences between two files. Various options are available for visual markup using standard packages such as color. Changes not directly affecting visible text, for example in formatting commands, are still marked in the source. A rudimentary revision facilility is provided by another Perl script, latexrevise, which accepts or rejects all changes. Manual editing of the difference file can be used to override this default behaviour and accept or reject selected changes only.
