What’s new in UltraCompare?

Modernized user interface, more fine-tuning parameters, and all new ways to sync and merge files.


UltraCompare gets a revolutionary update in 2023. Some of the notable changes in this release are visual tweaks to the comparison interface, new folder compare options, and more granular control on how comparisons are executed.

It will also be the first major release that will make its way to the Windows and Mac versions of UltraCompare simultaneously.

The most prominent update will be the functional facelift of the tool’s main comparison panes. Careful thought has gone into deciding what needs to be updated and what would make the most sense in making compare merges much more intuitive.

Secondly, UC 2023 comes with a lot of new filter options and compare parameters. This includes new tweakable options to fine tune your compare and merge settings. These settings include adding time stamps parameters, new hash compares, and setting default session options. Most of these may come off as niche use cases but it is an indispensable addition to those that can use it, so try them out!

Lastly, this release comes with a number of tweaks and bug fixes based on your reports. For a complete list of QoL tweaks and bug fixes read our blog post.

UltraCompare Mac 2022.1 released

UltraCompare Mac 2022 released

If you merge text in UltraCompare, have you ever thought, “I wish this were faster…”? Yeah, us too.

That’s why we’ve pushed pause on installing new functionality in UltraCompare and turned our focus exclusively on making merging faster and more responsive than ever. We’ve re-tooled the text merge engine completely to provide lightning fast merge results. We’ve redesigned UltraCompare’s data handling to completely eliminate unwanted redrawing of compare panes and refreshing of compares so you can get your merges done as quickly and as nimbly as you expect.

UltraCompare for Mac 2022 also includes more granular merge settings for text and folder mode. Check out more below.

Improved merge settings

Want a prompt for folder mode merge but not text mode? You got it. The new Merge section in Preferences provides you with more granular control over merge behavior.


Oh yeah, we threw in a few new application themes for you too.

Check out our three new themes with modernized colors. Just because you’re dealing with data doesn’t mean you can’t do it in style.
