Any java-based diff tool as nice as the one provided by IDEA?

Is there any pure-java diff tool that is as nice as (or better than) the one
provided by IDEA? I love IDEA's diff GUI. Hope I can get another one
to compare my non-java files (.tex, etc.)

The diff window in SmartCVS (Java CVS Client) is equally nice. (IntelliJ uses the core of SmartCVS, isn't it ?)

Any stand-alone program that is dedicated to do this job?

You do know you can compare non-java files with IDEA's diff? Just select two files in your project view, right click and "compare two files". Also there is a request to make the diff a standalone program:

I have never used it but Guiffy seems to be pure-java: http://www.guiffy.com/
IDEA's diff looks a bit nicer though.

The latest SmartCVS contains a SmartFC (file compare), which is an
independent application from SmartCVS.

Which version of IDEA? Cannot find it in 3.0.5

It's been a long time since I used 3.0.5. You probably need at least 4.0 and I'm on 4.5.2 myself.
