For a summary of changes and contributors, see:
or run this command from a git-cloned diffutils directory:
git shortlog v3.9..v3.10
Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature:
Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:
Here are the SHA1 and SHA256 checksums:
Verify the base64 SHA256 checksum with cksum -a sha256 –check
from coreutils-9.2 or OpenBSD’s cksum since 2007.
Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact. First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball. Then, run a command like this:
gpg –verify diffutils-3.10.tar.xz.sig
The signature should match the fingerprint of the following key:
pub rsa4096/0x7FD9FCCB000BEEEE 2010-06-14 [SCEA]
Key fingerprint = 155D 3FC5 00C8 3448 6D1E EA67 7FD9 FCCB 000B EEEE
uid [ unknown] Jim Meyering <email@example.com>
uid [ unknown] Jim Meyering <firstname.lastname@example.org>

If that command fails because you don’t have the required public key,
or that public key has expired, try the following commands to retrieve
or refresh it, and then rerun the ‘gpg –verify’ command.
gpg –locate-external-key firstname.lastname@example.org
gpg –recv-keys 7FD9FCCB000BEEEE
wget -q -O- ‘https://savannah.gnu.org/project/release-gpgkeys.php?group=diffutils&download=1’ | gpg –import –
As a last resort to find the key, you can try the official GNU
wget -q https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnu-keyring.gpg
gpg –keyring gnu-keyring.gpg –verify diffutils-3.10.tar.xz.sig
