Subject: Changed Files

I am getting ready to upgrade from 1.5.2sr4 to 1.6.0

My question is how can I best determine what files have changed since 1.5.2sr4?

The changed files file included with 1.6.0 indicates that only 11 files have been changed.

Are the files listed in the changed files file all of the files that have changed since the last minor release or the last major release?

thanks,

jared

Those were the files that changed since 1.6.0rc2.

I don't think there were a lot of files that didn't change ... Here's the diff command to generate that changed-files list: [code]diff -b -B --brief --recursive -N $OLDVERSION $NEWVERSION[/code]
So unpack a fresh 1.5.2sr4 and a fresh 1.6.0 and compare them. I get a list of 691 differences ...

bye, Dirk

Many thanks! After looking through the different changed files files I was starting to gather what you have said: Many files have changed.
