|ssdeep 2.10 released
||[Jul. 17th, 2013|12:19 am]
Thank you to everybody who beta tested the new ssdeep! I've fixed the bugs you found and have released the new version 2.10. As a reminder, this version contains a complete re-write of the hashing engine itself. The code, written by Helmut Grohne, is now thread-safe. Please note the ssdeep program is not multi-threaded—yet. But the library on which its based can now easily be used in multi-threaded applications.
This version also fixes a long-standing bug regarding long file paths on Windows. By default, paths are limited to 255 characters. There is a way to extend that limit, however, which I have finally gotten around to implementing.
You can directly download the Windows binaries or source code.
