Commands like Compare with HEAD do a triple-dot comparison, e.g., master...my-branch. This lists new stuff in my-branch but also new commits in master. (This has been introduced in #240 / 54941e6.)

In practice, I'm much more often interested in changes in my-branch only, which is done using a double-dot comparison master..my-branch.

@borekb Is this something a global setting would solve for you? If I were to offer a choice -- what would you name it?

I'd probably keep the two-dot comparison only – it's something I want in 99% cases. Actually, I can't remember when I last needed the three-dot one.

There is now a gitlens.advanced.useSymmetricDifferenceNotation setting which can be set to false to use the .. notation rather than the ... default.
