The option to ignore whitespace while diffing two files exists in Meld, it is just hidden away. Go to Edit -> Preferences and click the Text Filters tab. Here you will find a whole set of filters that can be used to ignore whitespace, empty lines, comments and many other diff items.

Tried with: Meld 1.8.4 and Ubuntu 14.04
