SmartSynchronize 3.4.3 Brings A Lot Of Fixes And Changes

As you may know, SmartSynchronize is an open-source, cross-platform file and directory comparison tool, permitting the users to compare files and perform 3-way merges and compare entire directory structures.

Main features of SmartSynchronize:

File Compare:

  • comfortable editing and transfer of changes from one file to the other
  • inner-line change detection

Directory Compare:

  • configurable filter for customized directory scanning (inclusion and exclusion)
  • configurable filter for ignored files
  • easy transfer of changes from one directory structure to another
  • saving configuration for later re-use (“profile”)
  • automatic synchronization depending on file times and previous synchronization time


  • ability to edit each of the three files
  • easy merge from changed files to resulting files


  • command line interface for easy invocation from other applications
  • configurable font, colors and accelerators
  • support for all major text file encodings

The latest version available is SmartSynchronize 3.4.3, which brings the below changes:

  • About dialog: ability to update installation directory
  • Autoupdate:when configured to only report a new version, allow to trigger the download from the notification and better cleanup of older builds
  • Directory Compare: show progress in task bar icon
  • Table filtering: changing the filter automatically selects first row

Fixed Bugs:

  • Autupdate: may fail because running instance could not be exited correctly
  • Docking: drag-and-drop preview showed non-rectangular form
  • Encoding: internal error selecting, e.g., x-JISAutoDetect
  • File Compare, View Settings: “Trim equal start/end of inner-line change” was
    not remembered
  • File Compare/Merge: refresh did not reload files form disk
