I was referring to RAD 7, which should be released this year.I wonder if there is any reason to stay with Eclipse 3.1? I heard that there will be no Rational RAD product based on Eclipse 3.1...If IBM does skip 3.1, it would reduce the need greatly. Of course the 1.0.x release supports it fine. I had heard that they were using 3.1.
You can do as you described, it should work. Another option is to checkout CVS project and then compare it with some revision or previous tag. Result will be shown in Synchronize view, so you can enable Change Sets mode (available since 3.1) or if model support is enabled in Team / CVS / Synchronize/Compare / Allow models you can activate "Change Sets" model (since 3.2).Honestly, when I look at this feature in CVS, I still have no idea what it does or what it is trying to tell me. So I have no idea what supporting it would mean for Subverison. In other words, sorry, I cannot answer.I am not sure what you mean, but the whole reason is to see commits grouped by change sets (in case of SVN it will be per revision). So, I won't have to open history view for project or resource and then scan trough affected paths like it is now, but instead will be able to see this information right in the Synchronize view. This would speedup browsing trough changes and help to review them quicker because I won't have to wait while history view fetch affected paths when I move to next revision.You gave this scenario once before. I understand this part and agree with the concept of the feature. I just meant my question literally. I cannot visualize what the information looks like and therefore how we would get it. I do not use CVS, so I have not really seen it in action. I have tried checking out various Eclipse projects so that I could use those to see the data, but I have not had a lot of success. The one time I got data to show it made no sense to me. I think this is because I have not figured out a way to back-date my workspace so that the Synch view will then have a lot of changes to show me. I should probably checkout an active project like Mylar and then just wait a week to try it.
Here is how it look like. So you can see user, date and commit comment for each change set. For svn it would be a good idea to show revision.
