              Here are two images explaining the graphs

              Please let me get this clear for you.
              Imagine you checked in File1 and File2 in changeset A.
              Then the smallest unit is changeset A (containing File1 and File2).

              When time passes, other changesets will be created (let’s call them by inheritance AA, AB, AAA)
              As graph
              A - AA - AAA
              - AB

              This is what plastic can do today.
              If you wanted to revert the change in File2 you’d have a problem.

              Now here is what I think of:
              Split up changeset A into A1 and A2. As a unit they’re “the same” as the old changeset A, but now you can merge them separately.
              This is what it looks like:
              (A1 - A2) - AA - AAA
              - AB

              That’s the theory. I’m not aware of your designs and maybe you’re right and it’s not possible.
              But in my mind, it should be ;)

              Changeset A is the same as A1+A2, so there should be no problem.
              You would have to change all references from changeset A to A2 of course.
              And maybe you would have to do some reorganization of other data. But still, possible.

              Anyway, please share this with your team. It would be fantastic to see this feature in the future =)

                    With the new version 6 comming and the fact that you release new versions much faster now, it would really help to have a way to automatically update clients.

                    Chrome is a very good example for this. It's always the latest version without anybody needing to install an update. This is how they do it:
                    You need to have two clients installed. While the user uses client A you can update client B in the background. When the program is started the next time, client B will be started instead of client A. Which makes it possible to update client A.

                    One problem is, that the client will run with user privileges and you'll need an admin context to update the other client. That's why you'll need an update service running as local system service. This way you won't see any Windows UAC.

                    Another problem might occur in multi-server-environments, where one client connects to multiple servers with different versions. I think you should add an option to the client configuration wizzard where the update server can be set. Leave it empty and no automatic updates will occur.

                    Finally the server will have to provide client setup files, somehow. This should be easy though, as you use the same setup files for servers and clients. Just store the setup somewhere the server can find and serve it.

                    I really hope that you consider this feature. Updating all clients is a real burden! And with that frequency of releases I'll lose my head =D

                    Maybe there could be a litte update note under the main menu when the client version is older than the server version.
                    With a click on this note a dialog shows up with some little bit of information and an install button which starts a setup of the exact same version which the sever has.
                    The administrator would only have to update the server and all clients get the notification about a version change and the chance to update to the excact version the admin has installed.

                    I don't care if you download the setup files on each client from the web, but maybe the server could hold the setup files and share them with the clients ;) this may reduce traffic and problems with clients connected via VPN and without internet connection.

                        I would prever if all branches had a default weight (maybe with the value of '10' (with some space up and down), maybe even configurable in the settings)

                        Yes! Weight should definitely a private thing.

                        Naming conventions don't work for us.

                        I love the conditional format rules within platic scm!
                        They should work here, too. You could even do the 'naming convention' thing with them ;)
