RE: BUG: Wrong merge range

I just tried to use TSVN 1.5 to do a merge.
I was used to TSVN 1.4.x and before.
I now see what you are all talking about.

I agree that it seems more natural to treat a revision like a changeset,
but it also appears to be significantly different than previous versions of TSVN that treated revisions
like a point in time.

In earlier versions of TSVN, if you chose a particular from revision in the log dialog, the revision selected in the merge dialog would be the revision before the one you chose and the to revision would be the revision you chose. The difference between the two revisions would be the changes that were committed in the later revision.

Again, I applaud the change of treating revisions like changesets, just please make sure some section in the help reflects
a) the difference in behavior from SVN command line
b) the difference in behavior from previous versions of TSVN.
I realize that some people who read the help will have never used previous versions of TSVN, and some people have never or will never use the SVN command line client - but there are many of us who have and might/will be confused.
