how do i show a diff between to commits on different branches (mercurial)?


in tortoise hg, i select two commits and ask for a visual diff.

does such a feature exist in intellij?

for example, i want to see all the differences between two releases.

it seems i can do this only using the history view, but here, i can't easily find my commits since the branch is not shown


It is possible for Git, bit not for Mercurial.

You are right that to compare 2 arbitrary commits one needs to use File History view. The Git File History is able to show all branches, while Mercurial file history is not. See


These docs are incredibly unhelpful.
