Release Notes: This release has been re-licensed to the BSD license. There are no other changes.
Release Notes: This first release is a rather blind port of the C based bsdiff utility. A vast bulk of the code has been ported to Java without any modification. There is scope for optimization (the C bsdiff is twice as fast as JBDiff). The diff file format used is similar to but currently not compatible with bsdiff. This release comprises a command line tool to make a diff and to apply the patch. There is also a method suitable for incorporation in other programs that that will accept Java.io.File objects as arguments.
