Unlike Roland, I'm lazy and usually don't bother using Check for Updates
before doing an update, but i do sometimes find myself wondering what
changed in some of the files that come up in the update list.

To determine this at the moment I use the Show Log button, or Show Log
on the specific file i'm wondering about, but i have no way to know what
revision the file was at before the update, so i can't accurately tell
the changes that have been made by the update.

It would be useful if there was a "Show Differences" right click option
on each file listed in the Update window to show exactly what was updated.
I understand that this may not be a trivial addition. TortoiseSVN would
have to either have some way to find the previous revision after the
update, or store the revision of each file before the update, to be able
to show the correct differences. Maybe that would add extra overhead
that is undesireable? I don't know, but if it could be done it would be
a great feature.
