    Release Notes: There is now an option to choose whether the lines from the older file or the newer are displayed first in the diff window. After double-clicking on a filename, dragging doesn't select more files. Copying, removing, and rediffing when the selection includes directories now works better.

      Release Notes: A file mode to display the differences of up to 5 files., double-clicking on a filename displays the various diffs through the pairs of active directories, and new options to do a BitKeeper get on the files, (not) expand keywords or get files for editing, redisplay without re-diffing all the files, invert the state of all the diff checkboxes, (de-)activate directories, only display a line if the file is different in two of the active directories, and touch (update) the modification time of the files. The filecmp library wasrenamed to for ldconfig, and installs in /usr/bin and /usr/lib by default.

        good app
        first of all, thanks for good program
        and secondly :) it would be nice to have an option to use some external program for 2 file diff view, say tkdiff.

        Works Great
        Just tried this out on my Slackware 7 box to compact
        two directories of images in which I had duplicates. Fantastic. Sure beats clicking the "no, don't
        overwrite" button all the time.
