Hi, people.

A new release of GNU `wdiff' is now available for anonymous ftp from [], in pub/gnu, as file wdiff-0.5.tar.gz.
Thanks to all those who contributed comments or suggestions.

The program `wdiff' is a front end to `diff' for comparing files
on a word per word basis.  A word is anything between whitespace.
This program is particularily useful for comparing two texts in
which a few words have been changed and for which paragraphs have
been refilled.

Most reported problems are solved.  Some bugs or suggestions may

Here are the user visible changes since the last official version:

* Option --ignore-case (-i) will fold case while comparing.
* Filename "-", used once, means that file comes from standard input.
* A few bugs, not all, have disappeared.


[ Most GNU software is packed using the GNU `gzip' compression program.
  Source code is available on most sites distributing GNU software.

  For information on how to order GNU software on tape, floppy or cd-rom, or
  printed GNU manuals, check the file etc/ORDERS in the GNU Emacs distribution

  By ordering your GNU software from the FSF, you help us continue to
  develop more free software.  Media revenues are our primary source of
  support.  Donations to FSF are deductible on US tax returns.

  The above software will soon be at these ftp sites as well.
  Please try them before as prep is very busy!
