how do i show a diff between to commits on different branches (mercurial)? Follow
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 https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-174875
These docs are incredibly unhelpful.
