ECMerge 1.2 is a free upgrade for users who have purchased ECMerge 1.x or ECMerge Beta.
ECMerge is now multi-threaded, for a better resource usage on new Dual Core and multi-processors computers
Converters Files can now be preprocessed by user-defined converters. This allows to export PDF/Word files to plain text, or ZIP archives to folders. More info.
Reports Patch, XML and HTML reports can be generated on both File and Folder Comparisons. Many customizable options. Define recurrent comparisons as .ecmt files and generate merge reports periodically. Reports in Folder Comparisons can be generated on the whole hierarchy, or on the selected/bookmarked items. More info.
Comparisons statistics Displays a dialog box with the summary of the comparison: number of changed, unchanged, inserted, removed, ignored items. Comparisons statistics in Folder Comparisons can be generated on the whole hierarchy, or on the selected/bookmared items. More info.
Options sets Define several sets of options you often use for Text or Folder Comparisons (comparison options, filters, converters, display). When opening a new comparison, you can select which set of options to use for it. More info.

Show/hide hidden files and folders Files and folders that were excluded from the comparison (regarding Name/Status/Date criteria) can be displayed in the Folder Comparison view, using the coloured assigned to "ignored" items.
More comparison heuristics ECMerge now handles more heuristics to apply on files, so as to determine whether they are equal or not regarding the specified criteria (based on date and/or size information). When these heuristics do not determine the file status, ECMerge will perform a content comparison. More info.
Time zone adjustment Capability to set an offset for any of the folders hierarchies. More info.
Generic Copy from one source to another ECMerge opens a dialog box to test/perform a copy action from one folder hierarchy to another one. This dialog box shows how many file/folder creation, deletion or copy will occur. The user can choose not to do some of the predetermined operations. More info.
Write merge result confirmation box equivalent feature to the "Generic Copy", when writting Folder Merge result. More info.
Comparison views can now be displayed horizontally or vertically
