Bug Description

I'm using bzr latest version (2.4.1.1) with QBZR. My default diff is defined as external software (beyond compare).
When i press "diff" in commit window , the external software will run. but when i press on the "diff" option under modified files , the builtin diff program will run.

is it a bug or missing configuration?

I can confirm this. A co-worker is using 2.3.4 and it also has this bug - using the diff button from the commit window correctly starts my external diff tool (kdiff3), but the other diff buttons only start qdiff.

Here on my computer with bzr 2.4.1-1 there is the same behaviour.

I suspect the same behavior will be if your run simply `bzr qdiff` this is what bzr-explorer does under the hood.

I think the latest changes from Hidetaka could help here.

Thanks.
Bialix , do you know when next release will be ?
I understood that the changes from Hidetaka together with the take_this and take_other in the conflicts (what we talked about in the discussion group) will be in the next release

It should be available in the next bzr 2.6 beta release. Check their
schedule.
