Split the "Copy To..." command into "Copy To..." which now also works
for non HEAD revisions (in case you want e.g. to tag an earlier
revision) and a "Copy To Working Copy..." which works as it did before
for non HEAD revisions (that was the "Save As..." as you thought) - a
copy to a working copy is usefull if you want to e.g. recover a deleted
file without loosing its history.

This was done in revision 1734.

These got fixed in revision 1700 already.

Done in revision 1735.

Fixed in revision 1737.

Added the "Save As..." in revision 1738.
The "Show Log" really isn't necessary, after all, you already have the
log view open _with_ the logs of that file.

What do you mean by "doesn't seem to work correctly"?

That's not possible. Once the update is done, you can't just "diff" that
file - it already _has_ all the changes applied, including the base file
inside the .svn folder. So to do a diff there would mean to get the file
from the repository with the revision it was before in your working
copy. But how to get that revision?
And the "Show Log" is already there in the progress dialog for updates.

Done in revision 1739.

Last time I checked, that context menu was there?

Ok, but that's enough for today. After all, I'm on "vacation" this week ;)
