* Noteworthy changes in release 2.9 (2010-02-11) [stable]
** New features
New diff option --suppress-blank-empty.
Bring back support for `diff -NUM', where NUM is a number,
even when conforming to POSIX 1003.1-2001. This change reverts to
the behavior of GNU diff 2.7 and earlier. This is a change only
when conforming to POSIX 1003.1-2001; there is no effect when
conforming to older POSIX versions.
This change is in response to decisions taken in the January 2005
Austin Group standardization meeting. For more details, please see
"Utility Syntax Guidelines" in the Minutes of the January 2005
sdiff now understands '1' and '2' as synonyms for 'l' and 'r'.
** Changes in behavior
sdiff and diff3 now invoke diff, not $(bindir)/diff
