New Code Compare v.5.3 is 35% More Compact and Faster

Devart introduced the new version of its Code Compare solution. The recent update brought an improved integration with the latest versions of Visual Studio.

Devart, a recognized vendor of professional database management software, has recently released the new version of Code Compare v.5.3. Now the tool is 35 percent more compact and loads faster not only in Visual Studio 2019 but also in Visual Studio 2017 and 2015. At the same time, the Czech vendor discontinued the support for older versions of Visual Studio 2010–2013, which are already outdated and slowed down Code Compare development.

The release also includes such useful enhancements as:
- Support for PMA mode in VS 2019 for file comparison. Now, a user doesn’t need to disable the PMA mode when creating a file comparison in Visual Studio 2019.
- Online documentation. Instead of the obsolete offline documentation as a .chm file, Devart has implemented new, more complete, online documentation, which will be actively updated and modernized.
- Support for 4K monitors and usability improved. The vendor took into account some comments regarding the UI of monitors with high DPI and made an update of UI in file comparison.

Code Compare is designed to merge and compare various files and folders. The solution integrates with all popular source control systems: TFS, SVN, Git, Mercurial, and Perforce, and is shipped both as a standalone file diff tool and a Visual Studio extension.
