Great - but failure on auto resolving merge conflict

about KDiff3 · Jul 2013 · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

I was very enthusiastic about finally having found a merge tool where I could make out which changes came in from two sides against a base version when merging.
Being able to see 3 columns of base file, remote and local changes, and the resulting file is very nice.
Unfortunately, I had to notice the auto-resolving of conflicts produces wrong results. I can thus not use it in this state for solving merge conflicts sadly.

Official Website is for Linux installer only ...
https://kde.org/applications/development/org.kde.kdiff3
... not a hint of Windows anywhere.
Latest Linux appears to be v1.8 (Feb-2020)
https://cgit.kde.org/kdiff3.git

Windows version is older v0.9.98 (2014-07-04) on http://kdiff3.sourceforge.net/
Softpedia have Windows version too https://www.softpedia.com/get/Office-tools/Text-editors/KDiff3.shtml

Developer last update (2014) ... v0.9.98 (2014-07-04) ... at ... http://kdiff3.sourceforge.net/
AlternativeTo app page (2017) ... latest update was made in Feb 2017 ... ?

Developer's update (2014) is well after Kissaki's comment below , so there is a possibility kfiff3 is fixed
I would like to know if Kissaki's concerns have been addressed by the developer?
This is my first venture into text comparison, so I am a bit nervous at the reliability of kdiff3
