Diffident 0.3

My original plan for Diffident, the side-by-side diff viewer and editor that works in a terminal, was to implement basic editing capabilities before making another release.

Of course, that turned out to be quite ambitious. It involves essentially implementing a full text editor, which is not really what I want to do. I may actually implement a “jump out to $EDITOR” option before the basic text editing facilities.

What I have implemented for this release is the ability to add and remove lines, and copy lines from one side to the other. For my personal use, this covers about 90% of cases, so I think it’s worthy of a release.

There is no undo/redo as yet, but the framework for that is in place, so I may make another release sometime soonish that is just for that.

So the dream of a diff viewer and editor is starting to come true…
