Hi, I've just installed EAP version 130.1486 CE and I'm happy to see that you can now fairly easily create and switch between branches.
One thing that I think would be very useful would be a tree view of commits, like you would get with the hg log -G command. When working with several branches and bookmarks at once it becomes borderline essential (IMO) to have an easily digestible view of the ancestry of various commits. Are there any plans to implement such a feature?
One other thing I just realised is that there's no way to delete a bookmark once created. There's also no way of marking a branch as "closed" which would be something done at commit time (the --close-branch argument to commit).
