Meld 1.3.1 has been released!
As well as the usual batch of improvements, there have been a lot of little issues and inconsistencies fixed in this release, thanks to lots of great contributions. Between cursor-warping improvements, corner case fixes, and some speed-ups, the editing experience should now be much smoother.

2009-08-14 meld-1.3.1

  * Add svk support (Vincent Legoll)
  * Add support for marking conflicts as resolved (Matthijs van de Water, Vincent Legoll)
  * Warp the text cursor to the start of jumped-to diff chunks (Vincent Legoll)
  * Allow toggling of toolbar and statusbar visibility, and add a fullscreen option (Michael Budde, Stephen Kennedy, Kai Willadsen)
  * Improved change merging and conflict resolution (Piotr Piastucki)
  * Speed up file comparisons and highlighting, significantly improving interactive editing performance (Kai Willadsen, Piotr Piastucki)
  * Meld has a shiny new application icon (Josef Vybíral)
