Description dmladek 2002-06-05 12:11:21 UTC
Product Version       = NetBeans IDE Development
Version (Build 200206050100)
  IDE Versioning        = IDE/1 spec=2.21
  Operating System      = Linux version 2.4.18
running on i386
  Java; VM; Vendor      = 1.4.1-beta; Java
HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.4.1-beta-b13; Sun
Microsystems Inc.
  Java Home             =
  System Locale; Encod. = cs_CZ; ISO-8859-2

There is quite new module borne from vcsgeneric:
diff module.

It knows now: use 2 diff engines (externall/internall)
 would be nice if I could specify more externall
 it could show differences between 2 different
files (not versioned)

Merge Tool (or Conflict resolver) knows till now
only work over versioned files (if they have
status [conflict].

I think with the help of externall diff3 engines
it could be so hard to teach this tool merge 2
different files which are not version controled.

Set target milestone to TBD
Comment 2 Martin Entlicher 2005-05-16 13:47:07 UTC
This can be considered for 4.2 also, but I'm not sure if it's doable in the
given timeframe.
