Hello HamsterofDeath,

what are these features? i can't find anything in idea's help


"New Local VCS" is not really a new feature, but rather a rewrite of the
Local VCS implementation. "Create Patch" allows you to create a file in the
standard .patch (unified diff) format which contains the changes you made
to some of the files. The patch can then be applied by other people, using
either IntelliJ IDEA or many other tools compatible with the format.

I was thinking awhile back it would be neat to have a "patch" mode in IDEA where the ide automatically created the .patch file for you on the fly as you edit/change files, modified files would go into one changelist and the .patch file into the current change list. You could then commit/revert to the current patch insted of the actual files.

A bit of a ludicrous idea, but I've been in a situation where I wanted just that behaviour.
