difference between two directories

I’m a bit a fan of observium, sadly they switched from “open-source” to a fremium model. The Community version is free, but only gets two updates a year. Its also not visible when a new version is out and the download is “latest” not version/revision …. So you end up gambling when there is an update. Even within the structure there is no clear version given.
So the only way to know if its a new version is to compare the two directories but guess what, its as easy as :
diff -rq /path/to/observium /path/to/observium_new?
Good little tool. By the way it seems I was up-to-date ! (no new eye-candy)
