[Subclipse-users] Feature request: graphical UI for merging between branches

From: <joller_lee_at_himax.com.tw>

When merging changes between branches by Subclipse,
there are some options including `dry run' and `merge'.
The latter simply applies changes to the working copy,
which provides no chance of previewing and conflict-resolving in advance.
After the merge, some files may contain conflicts,
but one has to manually search over the working copy to find them out and
perform resolution.

On the other hand, the `dry run' option only prints messages to the SVN
console.

Ideally, some GUI similar to that of `Synchronize with repository' can be
provided
which lets the user preview and confirm the merging process.
At least, there should be a quick way for the user to find out all the
conflicts after the merge.

Are the features proposed already implemented?
If not, is there any plan on implementing them?
Or is there any workaround?

Thanks a lot!
