Subversion: How to get history informatiuon about a project ?

I'm new to Subversion Integration in IntelliJ.
My question: Where do i get information about what changes in my project
over time ?
I only have found 'browse changes'
But this view does not show me the versionnumbers and comments/Commit
Messages ?
For a single file i can use 'show history' but why are this information
not shown in browse changes ?

It definitely does show both revision numbers (in the list of revisions matching
the criteria you've entered) and commit messages (when you select a particular
revision).

I see the comment when i click on an item but where are the revision
numbers ?
(And it would be better if the comments would also be printed in the
table (like in show history))

Oops, indeed. I was so used to seeing them in other version control integrations
that I didn't bother checking Subversion. That's a bug, and it will be fixed
soon.

It would be great to see the commit message in the table as well... I see quite a few people asking for that...

I would like to second this. I provided feedback on this in the beta, but didn't hear anything about it.

Currently, the Browse Changes feature with Subversion is a bit of a joke. It's fortunate that TMate still works with IDEA 6. TMate does a great job with this, much nicer than IDEA 6 -- what's the deal there???

I hope that TMate is continued or, even better, rolled into IDEA. I guess the problem is TMate is CVS/SVN-specific, while you are trying to make VCS support more generic? In any case, TMate is a model of user-interface design.

John - instead of leaving it at "is a bit of a joke" - any key areas you're finding it lacking? Any links to JIRA tickets about improvements at all?

Hi Mark,

I'm sorry if my phrasing is not constructive. If, as Dmitry says, this will be fixed in 6.0.1, that will be great. (In the meantime, I will continue to call it a joke. It really is quite silly as it stands.)

I have a small list of usability issues I have accumulated over the past few weeks, and I have been meaning to post them in some form. The trouble is, I find it takes a lot of time to do that properly. I feel I need to search through the forums and JIRA, to avoid wasting other peoples' time. And in the past when I've tried to do this, I found I still created duplicate entries, so I got a bit discouraged.

For example, I just tried to search for a JIRA issue using "changes browser subversion comment". I get hits on JAR file parsing performance, the GUI designer and XML/XSLT support! I have no idea whether there is a JIRA for this issue. (I'm not very good with JIRA.) (And now of course someone searching for "GUI designer" in the forum will probably hit this thread. :(

Sorry not to be more constructive.

There was a request for this, but I can't find it right now. :(

Improving the overall VCS UI, and in particular Browse Changes, is one of
our major goals for 6.5. And yes, we do plan to integrate more TMate functionality
into IDEA.

Please don't be discouraged by this. It's really our job to find duplicates,
not yours. (Although we really appreciate the help of those users who do
find them for us. :) )

Thanks for your encouragement, Dmitry.

I hope I can get my list of usability issues posted shortly. I did notice today that many of my issues have in fact been fixed by now. Well done.

I am pleased to hear there is more enhancement planned for 6.5. I do think a lot of the new VCS interface is great, and I should have said so. Rolling more TMate-style functionality in will only improve things.
