Upcoming new features in the next version of ExamDiff Pro

We're hard at work on the next version of ExamDiff Pro. Here's what we are planning to include in it:
  • Automated directory synchronization
  • Option to ignore text file lines by their numbers
  • Option to ignore blank lines at the end of a file
  • Ability to copy adjacent ignored lines when diff blocks are replaced
  • New navigation commands
    • First diff
    • Last diff
    • Go to the end of current diff
  • Ability to email a report from the command line
  • Ability to denote text/binary files based on their extensions
  • Option to swap diff and color bars for the first pane
  • Changes in the way empty directories are presented
  • New toolbar buttons
We have some other features that are tentative, but can still make it into the upcoming release. Over the course of the following weeks I'll provide more information on each of the above features, and any new ones that will be included.
