Different Enconding
The DiffTool and the MergeTool have been improved because they now support files with different encodings. The user can choose a different encoding for the three different contributors and also for the merge result file.
On the “Preferences View” you can still set the default encoding. This option will be used when the specific contributors encoding can’t be detected. On the other hand, the custom contributor encoding will not be used when a specific contributor encoding is detected.
If the configured encoding is set to “NONE”, the encoding will depend on the contributors encoding. There are several possibilities:
  • If both merge contributors are having the same encoding the merge tool will use that certain encoding for the result merge file.
  • If only one of the merge contributors has changed the encoding, that new encoding will be used for the result merge file.
  • If both contributors change the encoding, the result encoding will be the less restrictive one.
  • If the encoding is not detected the content will be processed in raw mode
Finally, the UTF-8 encoding by default will not write the BOM field, only if the encoding has been changed to UTF-8 with BOM is when the BOM will be written into the result merge file. The UTF-8 BOM filed is not added by default anymore.


The annotate operation was throwing an error when the operation was executed for a checked out item located inside an xlink. Now it’s fixed and working.

Enjoy it!

We develop Plastic SCM, a version control that excels in branching and merging, can deal with huge projects and big binary assets natively, and it comes with GUIs and tools to make everything simpler.

We are also the developers of SemanticMerge, and the gmaster Git client.
