GNOME visual diff and merge tool

'Meld' is a graphical diff and merge tool. It lets you edit files in place (diffs update dynamically), and a middle column shows detailed changes and allows merges. It has user-friendly diff-browsing. The margins show location of changes, and it also has a tabbed interface that lets you open multiple diffs at once.
