Robert, please give the latest 8.1 preview a try. It's not what you are asking, but maybe helps a step forward.
Thomas, I'm unclear as to what feature/configuration option you're proposing as a potential substitute for being able to set/unset line wrapping in the changes display. It's a feature I'm desperate to see added to SmartGit as well, and if there's currently an analogue for it in the software that I'm unaware of I'd like to shed that ignorance posthaste. Could you more precisely describe what you're suggesting we try?
