I'm using the tool on Linux and love it's standalone (ie no Gnome/KDE dependencies). Being spoiled by using Beyond Compare in Windows I'm missing a few features:

1. File merge dialog assumes one direction (left to right). This means one has to remember to always select first file/folder as the reference and second as the target. It should allow both ways (ie click on the left side and say replace with Right, Paste should work etc.)
2. While in File Diff viewer it's very useful to be able to delete files and copy in both direction.
3. While in File merge dialog when a single line is selected would be nice to display the two version (left, right) at the bottom one below each other. It's especially useful for long lines that would not fit in half screen.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Thanks for the comments.

We've had several requests for each of the features that you've listed. We're considering each of them for the next major release. I can't promise anything right now, but they are being considered.

Thanks again for the comments.

I'm after "Replace with Right" feature.
I've upgraded from 3.3.1 to 3.3.2 to see if it was fixed already, but it's not.
Most of the Diff tools support that (such as Meld, opendiff, etc.).

Correct, DiffMerge still only allow editing in the right panel (and in the middle panel of a merge window).
This is only my list, but hasn't made it to the top yet.

Sorry,
