A new development version of Meld has been released. Meld is a visual diff and merge tool.

Meld 3.19.1 released


It lets you compare two or three files, and updates the comparisons while you edit them in-place. You can also compare folders, launching comparisons of individual files as desired. Last but by no means least, Meld lets you work with your current changes in a wide variety of version control systems, including Git, Bazaar, Mercurial and Subversion.
