version of WinMerge, we hope that this beta build will prove to have only
minor bugs, if that is the case then an actual release will come soon.
Please report any bugs you find in this beta build on
If you find a bug which has to do with comparing files, then please also
include the files in your bug report, so we may reproduce the bug.
If anybody is interested in translating the user interface to your language,
then this might be a good time to do it. Grab a copy of merge.rc here
and when you are done upload the file as a patch here
Please note that partial translations already exists for Brasillian, Czech,
Dutch, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Turkish. They are in different
states of completeness, please evaluate if you want to update those, or
start over from scratch.
