Win7 libraries (was: (no subject))

You’d be better off with this technical description:




It looks like it’s a virtual container like Control Panel, but there’s no guarantee that the layout of your folders in the library will match the layout on the filesystem (as its designed to be a search container – ie you can scatter all your music files over your HDD, but see them all grouped in a Library).


TSVN would have to operate on the real folder, not the one displayed in the library, as subversion only supports direct filesystem operations, not virtual ones (eg like junctions).


I wouldn’t call it a bug at all.

Bug Report:

In Windows 7 there is a new concept introduced for file storage and access called "Libraries". I have Tortoise installed on my Windows 7 RC machine, and when I am inside a library, the context menu does not include Tortoise's menu entries. If I want to show Tortoise's context menu entries, I have to navigate to the applicable folder via the file system, instead of being able to go through the Library.


For example (attached Picture1):

I have navigated into the "Documents" Library, and when I right-click, there are no TortoiseSVN entries in the menu. You can see in the screenshot that I have a folder checked out called SCIS, but I didn't do it through the Library; I had to find that directory in the file system (next example).


For another example (atached Picture2):

I have found the correct folder in the file system, and have navigated directly there via drive paths, etc. Now, when I right-click, I get the expected TortoiseSVN menu entries, and am able to check-out my code, etc.



I am using the Windows 7 RC, they are expected to RTM in August, or late summer, with Windows 7 hitting the shelves near Christmas. It would be great to have Tortoise working completely with all the new improvements in Windows 7 (including, but not limited to Libraries) by then!


Thank you!
