Auto complete/suggest filenames and/or class types in checkin comments (PlasticSCM client)
Way back when I still used TortoiseSVN, I really enjoyed the fact that it's commit comment textbox would suggest types and filenames when committing new changes. See the attached image for an example.
The simplest implementation would be for the client to check the pending changes, compile a list of the filepaths and filenames, and then determine if the current typed word would match one of these list entries. If a word partially matches one of the entries, show a dropdown of these entries to let the user choose or dismiss the entries.
Just to elaborate, this is not an auto-fill feature (like #6389015), but more an autocomplete used to aid in comments like "VirtualFileBrowser now caches previous opened items" or "Removed Delete method from AbstractObjectCollection".
Super interesting indeed! This is one of the features we'd love to implement :)
Seems like the attachment has vanished, here's an example of Tortoise's autocomplete:
