  1. Number of active code reviews

    please, add a number behind the code review menu item which shows the user how many active code reviews are assigned to him.

    Maybe it could even flash up a bit when there are new reviews.

    • Add a context menu to the 'Checking pending changes' window

      There is no context menu available for changed files in the 'Checking pending changes' window. However, there is a similar view in the 'Pending changes' tab of PlasticSCM's main window and a context menu is available there.

      The thing is that the context menu enables you to view changes using a diff tool you prefer (the one set in application preferences). In the window mentioned in the topic there is no such menu at all and you can view changes only using the diff tool embedded inside that window.

      Most of us in our company are used to WinMerge and…

      • In branch explorer, allow a changset to be dragged from one branch to another to merge it whereever you want.

        This would make merges much slicker, by saving all of the RMB clicking.

        • New preference: "Always undo unchanged on Refresh in Pending Changes"

          When working in the Visual Studio plugin, changed files are always Checked-out when saved. If you re-save a file after restoring it to original contents (by Ctrl+Z or tweak-untweak a value etc), it's still Checked-out and will still appear in Pending Changes with a "Files are identical" Diff. The preference "Compare file contents instead of timestamps when determining Changed status" does not help here as the file is explicitly checked out.

          There is an "Undo unchanged" command but it's dangerously close to the "Undo changes" button. It would be nice to have the option to always perform a silent "Undo…

          • Show unchanged lines only for context in the text diff view

            Option for the built-in diff window to show only a few (maybe configurable) unchanged lines around each changed line.

            We have some multi-metabyte files with many thousands of lines and sometimes a few lines change and it is hard to scroll or click move around with such a large file. The buttons "to to next/previous change" are useful, but it is a lot more messy to actually see the diff.

            See the attached file for a comparison with Araxis merge for an example.

            In Araxis, we can see more information on the same screen.

            • Better issue tracker API

              Here are a few ideas for an improved issue tracker API. These suggestions were first posted in the forum 05 December 2011.

              Create branch from ticket
              I was surprised that I could not create a branch from a list of tickets. Instead I have to use a branch name convension to link my branch to a ticket. It should be trivial to extend the extension API with a "load tickets" method and present the list of tickets when creating a branch. How to select the tickets to be shown could be a matter of extension configuration. This could be made…

              • Have a mechanism to split repositories

                It would be very helpful if there was a means by which certain directories/paths could be moved from 1 repository to another, complete with history.

                • provide an increased level of support for the eclipse ide platform.

                  Basically the visual studio plugin for PlasticSCM is very powerful, however the majorly popular Eclipse IDE open source platform plugin is very very limited. I'd like to see an increased level of support for this platform as I'm sure many others would as well.

                  • Drag and drop files from Windows Explorer. Like Perforce etc. Let Windows do what it is good at.

                    I really miss the drag and drop functionality that most Windows programs have such as Perforce. I'd like to be able to drag files from a windows explorer window to a changelist etc.

                    • Pull Requests

                      Provide a mechanism to approve merges into specific branches.
                      One option is to use pull requests with an approval mechanism (of one or more required approvals).

                      This will allow trace-ability and enforcement of organization rules.
                      Linking it to code review will make it even greater.

                      • Use "tab mechanism" from Branch Explorer sidebar in all other sidebars

                        The Branch Explorer "Options" sidebar has its "tabs" in a vertical layout, which works better when there are several tabs. Other sidebars (in the Branches and Changesets views) use horizontal tabs instead. It would make sense to unify these so the same type of sidebar component is used in all these places.

                        Additionally, I think the "View History" view should have a sidebar as well...

                          • goto child changeset

                            In branch explorer there is a 'goto parent changeset' context menu. A similar one for children, possibly listing multiple branches, would be useful. Navigation is quite difficult in this direction.

                                • Add an option to prevent changing branches when you have added (private) files which are marked as pending adds.

                                  This would prevent you from adding a file and forgetting to add it to source control before changing branch. This idea here is that you would set Plastic up to discover private files so you can see which files need adding. Any solution files or built data you would put in separate folders which aren't under source control and thus aren't detected by Plastic. This approach prevents you from forgetting to add files, i.e it'll build for you locally but not for others.

                                    It would be nice to have some or all of the features of Gluon that are available on Windows also available on Mac. I'm primarily thinking of he ability to download partial repositories to save space by not including certain files.

                                    • Remember splitter heights in "Diff changeset" and "Explore changesets on branch"

                                      Window sizes for these windows are remembered the next time you open them, but adjusted heights of the splitter panes (comment, changes, diff) are not.

                                      • Secure code reviews

                                        Right now there is no mechanism to prevent users from deleting code reviews (unless I've missed something obvious), which is a problem for what we're trying to do. If nothing else it would be nice to have a "before-rmreview" trigger that we can hook into

                                        • automated replication

                                          I'm working on a main computer and a laptop for when i'm on the road.
                                          When i'm working on my laptop I would like to have it automatically push changes to my other computer or the central server when I check-in a change-set.

                                          Also i would like to be able to subscribe to a repo of specific branches so it automatically pulls changesets from the central server or the computer.
