dotnew is a utility to help with management of .new system
configuration files in slackware and slackware based systems.
dotnew provides both console and graphical interfaces. The console
interface uses dialog to present the user with a menu for each new
configuration file present in his system. The graphical interface is
using the GTK+2 toolkit. The user is allowed to replace the old
configuration file with the new one, delete the new configuration
file, view a diff between the two files or merge diffs between the
files using vimdiff or gvimdiff (GTK+2 interface only)
