The new version control UI added in version 6 (in particular, the Changes
view) to a large degree duplicates the UI that existed in previous version
(File View). To reduce the confusion and improve the UI consistency across
all supported VCS integration, we're planning to drop the File View in IntelliJ
IDEA 6.5 and integrate its important functionality into other views.
To understand the requirements better, we'd like to request community feedback.
If you're using a VCS integration where the File View is supported, do you
use it at all? If you do, how do you use it? Which of its current features
do you consider essential, and which are not?
General suggestions on improving the presentation of VCS-related information
in IntelliJ IDEA are also welcome in this thread.
