December 19, 2010 // 12:52 am - I wanted to give myself a summary of what's new in PS3 SDK 3.41 compared to PS3 SDK 1.92. diff proved to be less than helpful here, because of all the copyright and SDK version headers that changed.

Download: PS3 SDK Differences

So I put together a simple program to filter the diff results. It stripped almost 150K from the diff of the SPU headers, and nearly 300K from the diff of the PPU headers (approximately 25%). It should also be possible to use this exact same program to filter comparisons on any future incomplete SDK leaks.

I'm hopeful this can be helpful for other developers, so I'm sharing my diffs and the program to create and filter them. The zip contains the following files:

  • Makefile
  • diff_filter.cpp
  • spu_differences.txt
  • ppu_differences.txt

To create your own SDK diffs, modify to point to whichever two SDKs you want to compare, then run make && sh ./build_diffs

I wrote this in Linux (props to evilsperm for his excellent Ubuntu setup), but it should work just fine using msys. If it doesn't, let me know what error you're seeing and I'll get it fixed up.

If anyone sees anything really cool in the diffs, post it here. Hopefully we can get a good pool of knowledge of what's available in 3.41.

Here's the zip, Sorry about that. I'm pretty sure I posted it before, but maybe I accidentally deleted it when I edited the post.

Indeed... if TargTrainer attaches them I will move this to the main page, otherwise I will end up merging it to the existing 3.41 leak thread HERE tomorrow night.

Thanks for the post - but it seems you forgot to attach your zip with the included files!
