Friday, January 24, 2014 1 Comments

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

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

Now working on the next release! Enjoy!

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.

If you want to give it a try, download it from here.

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