Sometimes, there are empty diffs for review, like in this case. I believed they represent nothing, thus can be discarded. Edit: Actually, the markdown does not show the difference.

One of my Markdown diff engine changes was that you can see these things better now:

(click to enlarge). It's still somewhat subtle (I don't want to add visible characters for newlines, that creates way too much noise), but you can see the difference now.


If you have a look at the rendered output, you will see that the editor added carriage returns after the curly braces.

  • True! Can you see a difference in the markdown, though?
