WinMerge 2011 Portable 2011.5.427 has been released. WinMerge 2011 is a comparison and differencing tool with support for syntax highlighting and patch file generation. It's packaged in Format so it can easily integrate with the Platform. And it's open source and completely free.

Update automatically or install from the portable app store in the Platform.


ScreenshotWinMerge 2011 is an Open Source visual text file differencing and merging tool. It is highly useful for determing what has changed between project versions, and then merging changes between versions. It features visual differencing and merging of text files, a flexible editor with syntax highlighting, line numbers and word-wrap and handles DOS, UNIX and MAC text file formats. It also includes full support for archives with the bundled 7-Zip plugin. The WinMerge 2011 branch is a continuation of the older WinMerge release. Learn more about WinMerge 2011...

There's a mismatch in the updater DB.
Currently it is listed with WinMerge's hash instead of its own, so an install from the platform's app store fails.

Fixed, thanks for the heads up. Apologies to all for the inconvenience.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
