Meld 1.7.0 released

Meld 1.7.0 has been released. This is the first release of the new
development series, and features plenty of shiny new toys.

Note to packagers: Meld's 'unstable' series have typically been very
reliable, to the point of being pushed as updates into stable
distribution releases. Please do not assume that the current release
is that reliable.


    * File comparisons are faster! Meld now has a smarter pre-processing step
      for inline highlighting of differences (Piotr Piastucki) and does its
      highlighting calculations asynchronously (Kai Willadsen), leading to
      better overall performance and interactivity.
    * Auto-merge mode is now available from the command-line (Piotr Piastucki)
    * Comparisons can be opened in new tabs (rather than in a new window) from
      the command line (Kacper Wysocki, Antoine, Kai Willadsen)
    * Custom colours can now be configured for all Meld drawing (Kai Willadsen)


    * Improved behaviour when opening many tabs at once (Peter Tyser)
    * Notification of searches wrapping around the buffer (Philipp Müller)
    * Better compatibility with non-standard keyboard layouts (Stephan Hilb)
    * Better error reporting for failed VC comparisons (Kai Willadsen)
    * Version control compatibility updates and fixes (Jan Danielsson, Tim
      Babych, Kai Willadsen)
    * Other miscellaneous bug fixes (Jeff Oliver, Pacho Ramos, Rainer Suhm, Kai

What is Meld?

Meld is a visual diff and merge tool. It lets you compare two or three files,
and updates the comparisons while you edit them in-place. You can also compare
folders, launching comparisons of individual files as desired. Last but by no
means least, Meld lets you work with your current changes in a wide variety of
version control systems, including Git, Bazaar, Mercurial, Subversion and CVS.
