Mixing annotate and revision history windows in a single interface (or "time-lapse view")
Today I discovered one thing I actually like from the Perforce client and this is the time-lapse view:
Essentially, it mixes TortoiseHg's annotate and revision-history windows when analyzing a file and gives it a nifty slider to browse through the file history.
Now, there is a little more to the slider. This slider has three modes:
- Single revision: lets you browse one revision at a time and pretty much recreate the file history revision by revision.
- Incremental: lets you browse whatever change with respect to the previous one.
- Multiple: Lets you browse the differences between whatever from and to revisions you choose.
You could also see this feature as adding a better way to browse through the history between revisions in the annotate window.
