Description

Since a few days (?) there are linebreaks/wordwrap within single words which make the diff view unreadable.

This was intentional. Why is the word wrap problematic? What would be preferred?

It's simply difficult to read words which have linebreaks at unusual positions (e.g. after the first letter, this disturbs the reading flow). I often read diffs and would like to have word wrap only around spaces or something like hyphenation.

@Nirzar I would appreciate your input here.
