[ Chris Lamb ]
* New features:
- Show the list of supported file types in the manual and --help output. We
can copy-paste this into the website, etc.. Thanks to Jonathan Dowland
for the suggestion. (Closes: #893443)
- Add support for comparing Gnumeric spreadsheets. (Closes: #893311)
* Bug fixes:
- Additionally extract the classes.dex file from .apk files; apktool does
not do this by default which was preventing us from recursing into it to
find differences. Thanks to Hans-Christoph Steiner for the report.
(Closes: #890904)
- Recursively reset the permissions of temporary directories prior to
deletion to ensure that non-writable permissions such as 0555 are removed
and do not cause a traceback. (Closes: #891363)
- Support the case where the python3-xattr package is installed but
python3-pyxattr is not. Based on an patch by Doug Freed; thanks!
(Closes: #892240)
- Update Java tests for openjdk-9. (Closes: #893183)
* Output:
- Print a nicer error message if you only specify one file to compare.
- Don't show progress bar if we passed --debug as it just gets in the way.
* Code tidying:
- Avoid some necessary indentation around unconditional control flow.
- Tidy unnecessary assignments.
- Move the documentation for maybe_decode into a docstring on the method
- Import LooseVersion as LooseVersion.
- Use more Pythonic `old_level` variable names (over `oldLabel`) and avoid
using ambiguous `l` variable names.
- Add whitespace around operators and ensure 4-line indentation throughout.
* debian/*:
- Move DOS/MBR check into the testsuite.
- Add explicit runtime dependency on python3-distutils as it was dropped in
src:python3.6 3.6.5~rc1-2.
* Misc:
- Clarify that the Reproducible Builds project is not just about
- Drop executable bit on doc/Makefile.
- Use our bin/diffoscope wrapper in manpage generation to ensure we are
using the local version of diffoscope.

* Update terminology used in docs about exclusion options. Thanks to Paul
Wise for the idea. (Closes: #893324)
* Don't try to decode a string in comparators.utils.file. (Closes: #891903)
* Save a bunch of system calls by resetting tempfile permissions when
we actually need to do it.
