The Meld developers were happy to announce last evening, September 1, the immediate availability for download of version 1.7.5 of the Meld software, a visual diff and merge utility targeted at developers.
Meld 1.7.5 improves the handling of bad gconf setups, adds a filesystem key to force a no-gconf fallback for persistent issues, and introduces a preference for whether to highlight the current line of a file comparison or not.
This release also adds a keyboard shortcut for the commit dialog, and the version control console view is now automatically opened when the exit code of a VC operation pinpoints that there was an issue.
Among the bugs squashed in Meld 1.7.5, we can mention that traversing symlink loops in version control comparisons, as well as overall minor cleanups and fixes.
Last but not least, the following translations have been updated in Meld 1.7.5: Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Galician, Czech, and Polish. For more details, please read the official raw changelog.
