Which is why TortoiseGIT works exactly the same as TortoiseSVN in this 
regard.  You can do a diff, you can diff with previous versions and save 
the result.. The method of distributing patches probably won't change.  
The functionality is all there.  Using a tool is irrelevant as you can 
do it with or without.

I favorited a tweet on this last month.  It seems appropriate..
"@sdenike based on dev friends ditching SVN for Git it's mature enough. 
Also, use the CLI you lazy jerkface. You don't need a 3rd party app." -
