This is totally awesome, thank you very much!!!
According to the release notes this is windows only. Please add to gtkplastic!
Just to note, this one has been "Planned - Working on it" for way over a year now.
Should be a no-brainer. Needed it just now - here's a use-case:
I needed to find the branch where my coworker did the latest checkin. Quickest way to find it was to open the Changesets view, filter on coworker username, pick the latest changeset. Fine, now I know the branch, just right-click and jump to Branch Explorer / Branches - no wait that's not possible... (Doh!)
Actually, my duplicate was more related to this one:
This was duplicated by me here: http://plasticscm.uservoice.com/forums/15467-general/suggestions/9588258-branches-view-add-submenu-branch-explorer-for-q
I'll append my comments here, for reference:
Currently, there is no easy way to jump into the Branch Explorer from selected branch(es) in the Branches view.
This would be very convenient since it can sometimes be cumbersome to locate a specific task branch etc in the main Branch Explorer, while it's quick to find it in the excellent "Tree view" of the Branches view.
I'd like to have in the Branches view a (partial?) clone of the "Branch Explorer" submenu from the Branch Explorer view:
* Show selected branches in a new diagram
* Show selected and related branches in a new diagram
Also, when only one branch is selected I'd like a command to simply switch to the standard branch explorer and focus the "head" changeset.
It would be also useful in Code reviews and Annotate.
Basically, a possibility to make the main actions with a changeset should be possible from everywhere, where the changeset number is shown. Showing the changeset in a Branch Explorer (without a need to copy or sometimes even remember the changeset number, to navigate to the branch explorer manually and fill the changeset number into the filter box) enables all other actions with the changeset.
Often, I found a changeset in a Changesets view and I want to see this changeset in the Branch Explorer to see easily where it was integrated to which branch etc. Now, I need to go to Properties, copy the chageset number, switch to the Branch Explorer and paste the changeset number there. It would be great, if I could just click on the changeset with the right mouse button and select Show this changeset in Branch Explorer.
Similarly it would be helpful for branches in a Branches view.
