Hi Aidan and Tim, thanks for the suggestions!
We just released a diff tool that you can use to compare two backtest runs of the same strategy. Just go to your backtest list for an algorithm, select two backtests, and click "Compare". For now, we're using a full backtest run as the trigger to save a version, but I can see having more granular control in the future like Aidan suggested with a "Commit" button.
Let us know what you guys think!
