Diffinity v0.8.7 (2018-12-15)




Diffinity is a free diff and merging tool for Windows with focus on accurate and easy to read source code diffs.

It will compare the contents of two text files and show all differences line by line and also which individual characters/words that differs.


  • Improved diffing quality for xml and c-style source code
  • Thumbnail view of all diffs
  • Differentiates between changed, removed and added lines
  • Instance highlighting - double click or search for a word to show all instances of it
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Supports Unicode and auto detects encoding (and warns if encoding mismatch)
  • Customizable interface
  • In-line diffs live updated as you type
  • Windows Explorer shell integration
  • Portable (can be run directly from an external device)

Changes in version 0.8.7 (2018-12-15)

  • Automatic text encoding updated, should now be able to detect a bunch of new encodings and also be better at detecting unicode
  • Added support for file paths longer than 260 characters (.NET 4.6.2 required)
  • Added "Highlighted instances" count to status bar
  • Fixed so thumb view works even when no files are diffed (just typing text)
  • Added warning when trying to save text with characters unsupported by the selected encoding
  • Added check for if unicode BOM is missing and show notification + status bar highlight if one file has BOM and the other doesn't

  • Bugfix: Diffinity could crash when closed if shown file was changed on disk
  • Bugfix: Caret position information in status bar did not update when opening a new file
