Diff problems after 1.1.6 upgrade

We recently upgraded our 1.1.4 installation to 1.1.6 and now have an issue where diffs run via the Compare Revisions option at the bottom of the page no longer function and generate the following error message:
Foswiki detected an internal error - please check your Foswiki logs and webserver logs for more information.

Can't locate object method "no_expand_entities" via package "HTML::TreeBuilder"

I tried a clean installation on the same system (which is Ubuntu 10.04) and am seeing the same issue though a 1.1.5 installation works normally. I'm under the impression this functionality is provided by the CompareRevisionsAddOn and I attempted to re-install version 1.1.8 on the system though the issue remains. We're using the default template and don't have any other modifications I am aware of that might be causing the issue.

The Foswiki error log shows this upon failure:

Any ideas?

Thanks.

We had an unfortunate change that added a dependency on HTML::TreeBuilder > 4.0. See Tasks.Item12337 / distro:7b15a58808d7 for a fix. This will be corrected in 1.1.7. Release Candidate 3 for 1.1.7 is available here: Download.FoswikiRelease01x01x07RC3

Thanks for the quick response. I grabbed the alternate version of Compare.pm from the link and functionality has been restored.
