Sure you can: the properties dialog shows you all properties at once too.

Or if you want to look at the properties only, then it's not more work
as before. Instead of choosing "properties" and changing to the
Subversion tab, choose "Properties" in the TSVN submenu. In fact, it's
one click shorter than before.

Added one in revision 7640.

I really don't like to have the same functionality available in two
places. Because that means we have to maintain two code parts which
mostly do the same (but not *really* the same, code wise).
