Interesting if you could use hg in -p to see if are new changesets available

I think this would be nice. I leave Murky window open all the time when I work, so it would be nice to see if there are new changesets that came in.

You would some how run hg in -p on the current hg paths and display it.
Then it would display above the

{{{

!text

Rev Comment
------ -----------------
current --locally modified--

}}}

and display something like

{{{

!text

Rev Comment
--- -----------------
new --remote commit--

}}}

or something along those lines.
You could also click on the changeset and see the message and files modified. Since running hg in with the 'p' option allow brings the patch you could even allow you to see that.

Some people wouldn't want this so maybe having it as an option would be ideal. Also a sync time would be nice, say 15 minutes?

    I like this idea. I don't think showing it in the table view is the right way to go, though, since the table reflects what's in the repository you're viewing.

    Instead, maybe the Pull icon in the toolbar could light up. Or there could be a status area that would show an indicator.

    One of the reasons why I suggested showing the changesets in the in the table view is that it could easily show many changesets that happen. Also if you did it with table, there would be a lot of code reuse. To better distinguish you could have the --remotely modified-- be in red.

    It's probably also wise to not use -p by default - that probably downloads the entire revision set and would likely offer no performance gain over just pulling all the revs.
