5.3.231 27-Feb-20

New async Code Compare package for VS 2015-2019

Now Code Compare is 35 percent more compact and loads faster not only in Visual Studio 2019 but also in Visual Studio 2017 and 2015, but we had to discontinue support for older versions of Visual Studio 2010-2013, which had been already outdated and their support slows down Code Compare development.

Support for PMA mode in VS 2019 for file comparison

Now you don't need to disable the option "Optimize rendering for screens with different pixel densities" in Visual Studio 2019 and a file comparison will be created as before. Also, we've fixed scaling of some dialogs in this mode. In general we continue to improve the scaling of our UI in the Visual Studio extension moving to modern technologies.

Online documentation

Instead of the obsolete offline documentation as a .chm file, we've implemented a more complete new online documentation, which is located on our global resource and will be actively updated and modernized.

Support for 4K monitors and usability improved

Is this version, we've taken into account some commnets about the UI of monitors with hight DPI and updated button UI used for moving blocks in file comparison.

New activation system with support for Customer Portal

Now when you activate a paid license, it will be added to your personal account at the  Registered User's Area and is bound to your computer with a unique hardware identifier.  To conveniently manage licenses, for product activation, we also use a computer name that will be displayed in your personal account next to Hardware.

Integration with GitKraken in a standalone application

We supported opening comparison with GitKraken in Code Compare standalone application. You can learn more about Code Compare and Gitkraken integration by referring to our documentation.

Possibility to check license expiration in the installer

To avoid any compatibility issues between a new product version and an existing expired license, we force a license check before an old version is uninstalled.
