The syntax of the latexdiff-fast is

latexdiff-fast olderversion.tex newerversion.tex >diff-file.tex

which will will show additions/deletions from newerversion.tex in  
blue and red for the olderversion.tex. Because the order of the files  
presented to the Droplatexdiff.app was undetermined (it depends upon  
exactly how you select the two files to be compared) this wasn't  
always the case. I just updated Droplatexdiff.app so that the file  
with the older modification date is always first and the other is  
always second. You can pick up the newer version as  
Droplatexdiff.app.zip from <http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2/>. I also  
produce a latexdiff.log file now that will capture any errors  
(stderr) output from latexdiff-fast as well as some other information.

No documentation is necessary; just select and drop the two files  
onto the Dropscript and compile the resulting .tex file.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
