    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.

    Apparently two issues with this plugin make it difficult to use since Notepad++ 6.2.2., as noted in recent posts in the open discussion forum. A fix for at least the issue that disables javascript language settings (and maybe others) would be great. Thanks!

    The compare plugin is DANGEROUS! When installed, you have default shortcut of Alt-S which reverts all changes you've made to edited file to state of last save. So I've had a script version from yesterday and I've lost half a day of writing code, because some stupid guy which wrote Compare plugin made a function to forget every change and compare two unrelated files without giving any messagebox warning!!! A-D-I-O-S. WinMerge rules! Good bye!
