Well, the package in jessie is identical to the package in unstable prior to yesterday's upload, so the diff for 4.7l-3+deb8u1 or -4~deb8u1 would be the same as in debian.diff except for the version number itself. Does that answer your question?
I haven't prepared the jessie-specific package yet, because I wasn't sure it was worthwhile... I can rebuild against jessie or unstable, whichever you prefer.
