>> Dear Maintainer,
>> Although meld code gives the possibility to hide files and dirs in the dirdiff view, meld gui does not show this feature. So we can not hide items ourself.
>> The attached patch adds "Hide" to the menu, the toolbar and the popup.
>> Also, this bug seems to affect the 3.11.1 from experimental.
Sorry Anaël it seems this won't be fixed. :-(

I'm sorry, but that removal was intentional. The Hide action never had a clear
use case, and having it makes future improvements to the tree view harder.
