New in 11: Diff Tool for Binary Files

Konstantin Bulenkov

Did you know that IntelliJ IDEA 11 Diff Tool supports some of binary contents? Now, it’s not a problem to see changes from file history or a change list. Every binary content you’re able to open in IntelliJ might be compared in Diff Tool: UML diagrams, SWF files, of course images, and much, much more.

    I don’t think it’s very useful.

    i think the image diff tool should also highlight the changed regions to see the changed parts

    How can I diff files of generic (unknown) binary file type?

    (Actually in my case I want to diff binary files of type .p12 key/certificate, but I suppose they are not supported by any IntelliJ plugin, so I want at least a generic hex diff. Is that possible?)
