Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-12-22 15:01:26 UTC
The unified diff view (which can be toggled in the changes view) shows each changed line as a separate hunk. Adjacent hunks are not coalesced even if their context overlaps, which means that hunks can show the old unmodified values for text in adjacent hunks, which is confusing.

Y it's moved to text editor because the diff algorithm is there.
