The best of both worlds: diff a file + editing power of vim. See More

I use Meld on Linux for more than 6 years. Is fast, stable, easy! See More

Meld allows users to compare two or three different folders for differences. But if a user wants to 'zoom in' and compare files contained in these folders, Meld gives you the ability to do so and launch file comparisons between files contained in different folders or in the same folder. See More
Through the GNOME Translation project and the translators that have worked for it, Meld is available in multiple languages. You can check if your language is supported in the translation statistics page. If you can't find your language or if your language translation is unfinished and you want to help, you can do so by joining the GNOME Translation Project. See More
Straightforward and you don't need to read tutorials to use it. Just click and select and you instantly see how the difference and merges are connected to each other. Three sub-windows instead of four, which reduces the mess during merge and let you see more of the surrounding files rather than just five lines. See More
Meld supports the major version control systems (Git, Mercurial, Subversion and Bazaar). You can launch file comparisons between different versions to see what parts changed before commiting. Simple version control actions are also supported and possible. For example: commit/update/add/remove/delete files. See More
So parts you don't want to see in your comparison can be hidden with ignore masks. Parts that are okay to be changed can be set with change-lists so Beyond compare knows what's the replacement value and skips displaying this. So you can focus on the for you important changes. For example, with the ignore mask you can compare two logs with different timestamps but nearly same content (beginning with timestamps the first x characters adding to ignore). See More
using Beyond Compare 4 I ended up with a lot of duplicates becuse a long list of orphans where not orphans at all. I did any kind of check and I conclude that the long names of nested folders are probably not handled by this program. I rebuilt all the indexes. I did all I could in my knowledge. So to me there is a bug See More

This is useful when resolving Git conflicts where you can see the original version and the two conflicting checkins. Clear display of changed lines (background color) and changed characters (foreground color). It can also be used to merge changes where no version control like Git is used. See More
After a merge sometimes you have conflicts. You can resolve them by using a merge tool. You can run git mergetool --tool-help to get more details about what tools are supported. You will get an output like the following git mergetool --tool=<tool> may be set to one of the following: p4merge tortoisemerge vimdiff vimdiff2 vimdiff3 The following tools are valid, but not currently available: araxis bc bc3 codecompare deltawalker diffmerge diffuse ecmerge emerge gvimdiff gvimdiff2 gvimdiff3 kdiff3 meld opendiff tkdiff winmerge xxdiff Some of the tools listed above only work in a windowed environment. If run in a terminal-only session, they will fail. See More
No update for years; last official release was made in 2013. Two forks are still in active development as of 2017. WinMerge2011: https://bitbucket.org/jtuc/winmerge2011/ As of 2015 it was on par with the historical version, and has additional features such as showing only differences and a 64-bit version. Winmerge-v2-jp: https://bitbucket.org/sdottaka/winmerge-v2 and https://github.com/sdottaka/winmerge-v2 Adds support for 3-way merge, diff-only view, and improvements to the diff algorithm among other additions. Has a 64-bit version. An 'official' list of forks is maintained (despite the url) at http://www.geocities.co.jp/SiliconValley-SanJose/8165/unofficial_winmerge_nightly_builds.html See More
