[中文说明]


Releases/Binaries

Download from last release : Command line app for Windows , Linux , MacOS; and .so .java for Android.

usage:

  • ZipDiff(oldZip,newZip,out diffData)
    release the diffData for update oldZip;

  • ZipPatch(oldZip,diffData,out newZip)
    ok , got the newZip;
    ZipPatch() requires 4*(decompress stream memory) + ref old decompress memory + O(1), also ref old decompress can use temp disk file without memory;
    ZipPatch() support multi-thread parallel compress mode when writing zip file, which requires more and more memory! (NOTE: patch by multi-thread need ApkNormalized zip files)

  • NOTE:
    if your need newZip(patch result) file byte by byte equal, Released newZip := ApkNormalized(newZip) before run ZipDiff, AND You should not modify the zlib version (unless it is certified compatible);
    if your apk(or jar) file used Jar sign(Apk v1 sign), is same as zip file;
    if your apk used Apk v2 sign(or Apk v3 sign), Released newZip := AndroidSDK#apksigner(ApkNormalized(AndroidSDK#apksigner(newZip))) before ZipDiff;

  • NOTE:
    ApkDiffPath can't be used in the Android app store, because it requires re-signing apk;
    sfpatcher like archive-patcher, is designed for Android app store, but patch is much faster than archive-patcher.
