ExamDiff Pro 9.0 Beta!

We are pleased to announce a public beta program for ExamDiff Pro 9.0.

You can download ExamDiff Pro 9.0 Beta for 32-bit Windows and for 64-bit Windows. The upgrade is free for all users who purchased ExamDiff Pro less than 12 months before this release. See the bottom of this email for upgrade instructions.

Here's what's new in ExamDiff Pro 9.0 (as compared to 8.0):

Updated User Interface

In this release of ExamDiff Pro gets a significantly updated user interface with a greatly improved and modernized look and feel. Along with a generally enhanced user experience, ExamDiff Pro 9.0 features multiple, movable toolbars, better customization options, new toolbar and menu icons, and a new output log pane.

For more information, see our blog entry about updated user interface.

Fast Binary Comparison

One very useful new and much-requested feature is fast binary comparison mode (byte-by-byte comparison). When activated, ExamDiff Pro will simply compare each byte of one file with the corresponding byte of another file, rather than executing the diff algorithm, which is much faster and allows to show the hex memory addresses of each row of bytes.

For more information, see our blog entry about fast binary comparison.

Merge Additions (Master edition)

In version 9.0 we are be making a variety of improvements to three-way diff and merge, including the ability to diff without merging, more ignore options, and general improvements to merge performance.

For more information, see our blog entry about merge additions.


Another major new feature arriving in this version is logging of actions, errors, results, and other messages to the new output pane and, optionally, to a file.

For more information, see our blog entry about logging in ExamDiff Pro.
