Added an issue for this

Already done (you can use a nightly build)

This won't be possible to do in TSVN. The Subversion API doesn't provide
that kind of information. And it would be difficult to do:
If there are multiple changes to a specific file, then which
developer/date should be used/shown?

> * Refresh

What would that be good for? The information doesn't change, so a
refresh is IMHO useless.
