New CVS Integration

I tried the new CVS integration for the first time and it seems to be a step backwards compared to the old one in Ariadna, at least at the moment. A lot of options are missing and where is the CVS file view?
Before I start complaining/filing requests and do a time-consuming search in the forums and the tracker, I want to ask whether there exists a document or more detailed overview (than "New CVS Integration") what is planned and already completed for the "New CVS Integration".
So I don't have to file requests that are already planned.

There are open requests in tracker for the features/bugs that are planned to
implement/fix.

Just curious: why do you need the old CVS file view?

1. To get an easy (and compressed by using the "Hide..."-buttons) overview, which files are not up-to-date/need to be commited, which are new, which have been merged/have conflicts, ...

2. To see the revisions, sticky tags, branchs, ... of the files.

3. To select the sets of files to commit with the same comment. I normally don't commit all modified files in one go, but e.g. select some files that contribute to a certain modification and commit them together with the same comment. Or commit some files individually. The cvs view was a very convenient way for this.

4. To select modified files to perform a diff against the repository (to see what I have changed :) ) before commiting.


Maybe there is a new way to do these things and I missed it.
Or maybe these functions could/should be integrated within the project structure. For example as a new view in addition to "Sourcepath", "Classpath" (but these will be changed anyway, don't they?) or by adding the old "Hide..."-buttons and a new button "Show CVS informations" for revision, sticky, ...

Shall I file a new request for this or open a new discussion about the cvs view?

He's probably trying to get a list of files he modified before committing,
or so.

There were a few things I felt I needed from the old cvs integration until I
noticed (in 816, could have been there in 815 as well) that you can bring up
the commit project dialog and exclude files from commit, go and edit them
from there, compare them., etc.

I think the only "scary" part is that you have to choose commit in order to
view a change status. An option for showing just the status (with a link to
commit) might be a more natural option in this case.

Try Cvs/Commit Project... and right click on a file. You'll be able to do
all the things you mention (I missed the old cvs as well until they've
implemented this functionality in one of the recent builds - it wasn't there
in 813 for sure).

HTH,

Old request of mine:

to

view a change status. An option for showing just the status (with a link

It doesn't have the same functionality.

- I can't see the revisions, sticky tags, branches, which files have been merged/have conflicts,...

- And it only shows the modified/added/deleted files, so I also can't get these informations for other files.

- If I want to commit files in some sets, I repeatingly have to open "Commit Project" again and again and each time exclude the files that I don't want to commit together. This is very annoying and much more time consuming than with the old CVS View where I just could select the files that I want to commit together.

- And after all, selecting "Commit Project" to just get some informations or an overview of the current changes that have been made, is a little unusual way...

Exactly (with the addition of showing more status information, see above post)!
