Microsoft dropped it from Windows Explorer but it kept working in the
third-party file managers which implemented the other side of the
interface themselves (as opposed to delegating everything to the

(Directory Opus is one such file manager, which I use and work on. It
can show the TSVN columns and/or apply searching/filtering and
highlighting against them (e.g. highlight modified files in red). I
think Xplorer2 also supports them, although I may be getting it mixed
up with another one. We use the columns ourselves on our Win7/Win8
machines. They'll be used by fewer people these days, due to what
Microsoft did to Explorer, but definitely they're still very useful to
a few of us.)

FWIW, after this came up originally, and having noticed that simply
re-adding the registry value made everything work again, I had a look
at the TortoiseSVN code repository to see if the change was
intentional. I couldn't see a change in the installer that
corresponded with the change in behaviour and it still looked like it
wanted to create the relevant registry value, but doesn't now for some
reason. I may just have been looking in the wrong place or at the
wrong tag/revision, though.
