We’re happy to announce the new version of SemanticMerge: 1.0.53 is now out! It includes a good number of improvements that users have been asking for, so we hope you really like this new version!
As usual the binaries are ready in semanticmerge.com
Embedded diff and rearranged controls
We have finally added the embedded diff so now you don’t have to launch an external tool to diff the methods if you don’t want to (it is still doable by clicking SHIFT + the diff button). This way diffing becomes way much faster. It was one of the top requests in UserVoice too.
I have highlighted some of the differences in the screenshot below.
We’re applying both requests from users and also the recommendations from a usability study we’ve just completed with the help of another company. We still have to apply some additional usability improvements.
We’ve also replaced most of the notifications made with dialogs by a new notification area:
And the VisualMerge also benefits from the embedded diff as you can see below:
Now you can also click on the ‘change icons’ in the graphic (the “c” and “m” for instance) and it will show the difference between the corresponding members in the embedded diff. Really useful!
We just solved one of the top requests in our UserVoice: add keyboard shortcuts.
Press “ALT” and the available shortcuts will show up:
Redesigned diff tool
The SemanticDiff has also been redesigned and now it is more similar to SemanticMerge:
Other improvements and UserVoice tasks closed
- We’ve improved the installer on Windows so that it now correctly shows the icon and the installed size on the “installed software” application.
- The installer now also properly cleans up the registry entries on uninstall.
- We’ve closed the UserVoice entry asking for drag and drop
- Also closed the request for a Tortoise tutorial since it is already available
