I run a political public relations firm, so I am practiced at spotting spontaneous, unscripted, unpaid, ordinary guy/gal-on-the-street interviews that are neither spontaneous and unscripted nor unpaid and ordinary. One would be a fool to believe all the overly effusive comments about DeltaWalker posted in this thread. Think about it. Have you ever seen a single application with more than TWENTY gushing and highly articulate testimonials in a row, each of which hits every important marketing point with extraordinary specificity, NONE of which ever mentions any major or even minor aspect of the application that needs improvement or modification NOR requests the addition of any feature? If you have, then ask yourself one more question: Is folder comparison and syncing such a difficult undertaking or deeply moving personal experience that a program which does it well should be so universally adored and revered, as this one is? In the biz, we have a name for such a "softball" interview or unsolicited commentary that asks no difficult questions or elicits no negative comparisons, and instead serves only to extol the subject's virtues. They usually turn out to be covertly sponsored by the subject or developer himself or his corporation. We call it a "BJ," and it looks very much like the reviews and comments in this thread. You know it's a BJ when repeated, supposedly unsolicited comments about the person or product say some or all of the following: #1 - It is the best in its class; so good, in fact, that the entire industry considers it the standard to beat (but, of course, they never could); #2 - It not only works well, it's a thing of beauty to watch and use; #3 - If you buy this product, YOU will be a thing of beauty and an inspiration to your peers; #4 - You can believe me because I'm a highly experienced professional who has tried them all [which, I suppose, pertains to my comments as well], and this one is head and shoulders above the rest; #5 - Not only is the product great, but so is the company that makes it; #6 - Product support is the best in the business; #7 - Tech support is full of awesome personnel who are a) always there for you; b) completely committed to solving your problems; c) highly skilled; d) aware that your time is money, so they'll have you up and running again ASAP; and are e) personable and fun to work with. #8 - The commenter is not associated in any way with the company that makes this product. Of course, I could be wrong.

I left a longer review on the Oro edition, but rest assured: As a user since '08, I still believe that DeltaWalker (in any flavor) is STILL the best comparison utility available on any platform.

From their website: Purchases made on Aug 16, 2011 or on/after Nov 1, 2011 qualify for a free upgrade to DW 2.0. If you have bought DW directly, you should get an email with your new serial soon, if you bought it via a bundle, you need to send a mail to their support: sales@deltopia.com »If you did not purchase DW directly from us, but as part of a promotion or through a reseller, please provide the date or purchase, your DW 1.x license key and the promo/reseller you purchased it through.« Hope this helps.

I've been using this software since october of last year and before I thought I needed software like this. Now it has become indispensable and with version 2.0 even faster and more powerful then the previous version before. Had an issue that I emailed customer support about and they got back to me within a matter of minutes with a solution. Great software. Great support. I recommend it!

They did contact me with a genuine apology for the delay and I received a free upgrade to the latest version, which I must say is excellent in all ways, and visually in keeping with the latest OS X UI design. Many improvements!

The only Mac 3-way diff tool I know of. Unfortunately an Eclipse-based Java app. That means an application size which is 220MB and a memory consumption which can easily go over 500MB of RAM with spikes to 1.2GB. And that's just for a comparison of a single small file while keeping the app open for some hours.

Really? What about kdiff3. It's the most complete diff app probably on any platform including the mac. It's not pretty, but it is probably the best.

Great positive reviews, but very little info how this app will improve my developer/author life over open source tools like Mercurial combined with DiffMerge and similar. What do a purchaser actually get for the $464 asked? When do you need DeltaWalker rather than other available tools?

Why do Macupdate keep putting the price to the combined bundle price when there is one? No-one is interested in that outside of the bundle page! Macupdate should stop this practice right now. It's NOT informative. Of course the price for DeltaWalker is $39.95 so let me rephrase: What do a purchaser actually get for the $39.95 asked?

Hi Mikael, It'd be fair to say that with 9 apps in a bundle a promoter can highlight only a few of each app's key features. A detailed comparison of a small aspect of one of the apps functionality with its respective competitors will likely be of little interest to the vast majority of potential buyers. To your question: you will find a good deal of overlap if you were to compare what DeltaWalker and DiffMerge have to offer with respect to Mercurial integration - they both offer a command line interface allowing integration with SCMs such as Mercurial, a 2 and 3-way comparison and merge. The differences in those areas might be more in the way the two apps go about doing things - UI, performance, etc. And for that, the best might be to take DeltaWalker for a spin. If Mercurial is already installed on your machine, DW will integrate with it with only a few mouse clicks i.e. it'll locate the Mercurial config file and make all the necessary changes for you. Once a 2 or 3-way comparison is opened, you might like the way DW presents differences as well as the little fly-by buttons allowing easy point-and-click merging. Should your Mercurial repository store images that requiring visualization and comparison, DW would offer you the most comprehensive image file format support amongst any diff tools and a beautiful, functional image comparison UI. Ditto for compound docs such as Office, iWork, PDF, RTF - DW supports text extraction and comparison of them all, as well as structure view and comparison of XML files in addition to comparing them as text. Remote file and folder comparison and synchronization over SFTP, FTPS, FTP, WebDAV is also supported in DW. So are extensive folder comparison and synchronization options. As far as folder comparison performance, it's orders of magnitude faster in DW compared to DiffMerge.

Thank you for your comprehensive answer, Deltopia Support. I'm tempted, but probably I don't need the fidelity DW offers today. If my team grows or my the depth of my projects changes this may become different.

Thanks, guys! DeltaWalker's core logic is written in Java, main IO functionality and entire user interface, including retina display support, are 100% Cocoa/native. The key aspect of retina display support, that for fonts, has been available since DeltaWalker 1.9.9.3 (Dec. 2012). There's a chance that hi-res images e.g. icons will be ready on time for 2.0, if not, they'll be offered shortly afterwards.

Just marked my fourth year as a dedicated user of DeltaWalker, and it just keeps getting better. The developers are top-notch and quick to respond on the off chance you have a problem or suggestion. I definitely consider this a "must have" in my development toolbox now.
