Efficient manuscript revision with latexdiff

Hi there,

Here is a nice tip to highlight the revisions in your manuscripts before resubmitting to your favorite journals: use latexdiff!

latexdiff --type=CTRADITIONAL old_shitty_manuscript.tex new_shiny_manuscript.tex > diff.tex

You can then easily customize how differences appear in your pdf by changing the commands in the preamble.
Here are my settings:

\providecommand{\DIFadd}[1]{{\protect\color{blue} #1}} %DIF PREAMBLE
\providecommand{\DIFdel}[1]{} %DIF PREAMBLE

New text appears in blue and old text is simply removed.
