I notice that `Reworked Compare` is a new feature of version 18. It compares code block by block rather than line by line. It looks cleaner than version 17.
However, the granularity of difference is much coarser than version 17. It lose the flexibility of editing code.
For example, the following picture is screen shot of version 18. I can only `stage` lines 5 to 7 or `discard` them all together.
The following picture is screen shot of version 17. I can `discard` line 5 and 7 while `stage` line 6 individually just by three clicks. It is very convenient and flexible. I always think it is a best feature of `SmartGit` diff editor.
If I want to do the same thing in version 18 I must delete line 5 and 7 in my own editor and then `stage` line 6 in the `SmartGit`. It is very boring and inconvenient!
I think it is easy to add an option to switch compare algorithm back to version 17. For example, add button at the up-right corner of the compare pane. The default compare algorithm is version 18. If the button is clicked the compare algorithm is switched back to version 17.
You can use the following sample code to check the algorithm difference between version 18 and version 17:
