    Courgette - A new differential executable compressor

    Hello,

    Google Chrome developpers are introducing a new differential file compressor for executables.

    http://dev.chromium.org/developers/d...ates-courgette

    According to them, the resulting patches are a lot smaller than bsdiff's ones (and than xdelta's, I guess).

    A paper is being written; as for now we only know that they dissassemble the original binary to get better results.
