I can only repeat what wiffafoll wrote in an earlier review: "Has a horrible bug where comparing two files will destroy your undo history. Other bugs will cause it to remove the colour syntaxing and de-activate word wrapping. And it will also swap the tab position of the two files being compared for unknown reasons. You have been warned." That was 1.5 years ago. The bugs are still there.
Please add new version to official repository, available from Plugin Manager
It mainly works, that's good. Bug report: Menu buttons are broken. They always stay checked. Feature request in line difference: Can you please add some color indicating where chars are different in a line. It's hard to spot difference in long lines. Medieval ways of copy line, paste it under another line, finger scroll and eyeball checking are just way too slow. Yes, my text goes up to 300 chars in a line. No, it's not a code. No, I can't/won't break it in multiple lines.
