Why no "File View" when using subversion?

We have recently changed from CVS to subversion and people are somewhat missing the "File View" they were accustomed to when using CVS. Is there a reason why the File View functionality is not available ? If there is no reason I'm willing to give it a try with com.intellij.openapi.vcs.fileView, but I'm guessing that the fact that this not already done or that I'm not finding anything in the plugin section indicates a bigger underlying problem?

Hello Jurgen,

We have recently changed from CVS to subversion and people are
somewhat missing the "File View" they were accustomed to when using
CVS. Is there a reason why the File View functionality is not
available ? If there is no reason I'm willing to give it a try with
com.intellij.openapi.vcs.fileView, but I'm guessing that the fact that
this not already done or that I'm not finding anything in the plugin
section indicates a bigger underlying problem?


The File View has been completely removed from IDEA 7 because its functionality
is now provided by other VCS views (namely Changes | Local and Changes |
Committed). Implementing it in the IDEA 6 version of the Subversion plugin
should be possible with no major problems, but developing something for a
two-major-numbers-old version of IDEA looks like wasted effort to me.
