Default Daily Insecurity Output

Each morning Charlie Root mails out a daily insecurity output, part of which consists of a list of package list changes.
As explained, - means old, + means new but what does it mean when items are listed without plus or minus signs? Also, what do the @@ symbols signify?
I realize this is a minor point but it annoys me when I don't understand something so obviously simple.

Your code block shows the output from diff(1) in the unified format.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diff#Unified_format
Linux is for people who hate Windows. BSD is for people who love UNIX.

Thank you for the reply (and the link). It does help to clear thinks up a bit.
