The Subversion support is there, we would need to add new methods to
ISVNClientAdapter as well as implementations for JavaHL and the CLI. I
only mentioned 1.2.1 because there is a performance problems with this
feature in 1.2.0.

I was thinking two things for filtering.

1) Say you have a bunch of revisions loaded. A search option could
search the data that is loaded, and filter the view to only show the

2) Some new options on the view to grab a specific set of messages, such
as between dates X and Y.

An idea might be to change the Show in Resource History action to first
display a dialog that lets the user indicate how many messages to fetch
and/or a date range for the messages. Just thinking out loud.

I was mainly thinking about:

a) make compare enabled in more circumnstances. Currently, you can only
do compare if you are showing the revisions for a specific file.

b) perhaps provide a few compare options. Such as showing the specific
change for that revision (probably in diff format). Comparing against the
local pristine copy vs. the local edited copy. Perhaps options to show
unified diff of the entire revision? Like a patch option?

I think that is a good idea. Please send a patch.
