Difference of Two Identical Apps

@John

Can you please explain to me what exactly is the difference between these two WinMerge apps, so far as I can see, they are identical and have even the same description copy down to the letter but are attributed to two different people and one has an older last update date; suggesting it was forked at some point?

thank you,
Mike

Base app fork

As listed in the Features of WinMerge 2011 Portable:

The WinMerge 2011 branch is a continuation of the older WinMerge release.

Ok, I must have missed that

Ok, I must have missed that given the description copy was identical for both of them, thanks. So, curious why continue to post BOTH, why not deprecate and remove the older one altogether?
