In the Fossil "web UI", from the timeline, select a commit. Scroll down to
the file of interest and click on it to show that file's history. In the
"revision graph" (on the left), click the version you want to compare from
(the node will turn red), then the version you want to compare to. This
will display (in the web browser), a differ of the 2 versions.

 To use WinMerge, you need to configure Fossil to use that as the external
diff (or gdiff) tool. then from the command line:

       fossil diff --from VERSION --to VERSION

This will launch WinMerge (with temporary copies) to display the
differences between the 2 versions. However, Fossil will ignore any changes
you make in WinMerge.

Until either Fuel is updated (possibly by some one forking it) or some one
creates a new GUI front end for Fossil (possibly using Electronic or
similar), this is the best you can get.
