Changes, Ian Baird’s sweet new $40 file comparison and folder differencing app, has shipped. Think of it as a pro version of FileMerge. My favorite feature is the optional view that condenses the text to just the lines that have changed along with a few surrounding ones for context. It integrates smoothly with BBEdit and TextWrangler (using menu scripts that override the built-in diff commands) and TextMate (with its own bundle). Ian sent me a discount code for DF readers: enter “DARINGFIREBALL” through March 8 and you’ll save $10.
