Linux GUI (GTK GUI): A new native, gtk-based side-by-side diff viewer is out!
The new built-in diff has been added to the 'diff branch/changeset' window.
The new diff works for changed files and the contents for added, deleted and moved files.
This is an initial release, so there are a list of limitations to consider:
* Right now you can’t directly diff moved files under the “moved” group. We will add it later. In the meantime, go to the same file under “changed” to see the diffs.
* There are no diffs for xlinks, directories and binary meta-data yet.
* Some options are still missing: you can’t change the comparison method, syntax highlight or encoding. The comparison method is set to “recognize all” by default, which means it won’t ignore EOLs & whitespaces.
* Partial Xdiff support: it already detects moved fragments, but there are no buttons yet to navigate to the moved code or show the “sub-diff” of the fragments.
