Does anyone know the only different file(s) between Magento and I'd prefer to replace the updated files only when upgrading Magento rather than executing the patch file. That way I know exactly what changes are made and can be recorded. Observing the patch file is very confusing.

The patch and are two different things.

During the last Magento patches, we had the habbit that the new version of Magento was the same as the old version with the patch applied, this is not the case here: != + SUPEE-8788

Here's a diff between and Magento + SUPEE-8788 : https://gist.github.com/digitalpianism/14a15cd52baede0e5d600e8c653f33e9

  • I end up with installing then copied all the extensions and modded files. A lot of pains! Wish Magento could provide the zip file of all modded files only. Oct 18, 2016 at 0:06
