Already tried a plugin for VS.NET, but without the 10k$/year for VSIP
the possiblilities are to say the least 'limited' - or to be honest: it
sucks.
So I gave up that project and joined TortoiseSVN. If you know TortoiseCVS
then you'll know what that is.
Plans are to release a first public version of TortoiseSVN as soon as
version 0.17 of subversion is out. I'll work on Win2k and XP and
*should* work on 98/Me too, but we don't have such systems ready
to test that.
You can find the source on www.tortoisesvn.org.
BTW: <commercial>TortoiseSVN is better than a plugin for VS 'cause you can
use it without the need to have VS installed - and you can work
with any editor you like </commercial>
