Description mclaassen 2009-04-01 22:00:52 UTC
My company recently switched to AccuRev VCS.  I really miss the IDE / VCS integration I used to have with CVS.  One
thing that I have been missing a lot, but may not be too hard to have back, is the Quick Diff functionality.  (I don't
know what the official name is, but I am talking about the colored bars in the editor that show changed lines.)

If no more advanced VCS was in use, it would be nice if this would go off of the local history.  I realize that it
would, presumably, take the most recent file in the history...which would refresh its basis with every save.  However,
until that save happened, it would be great.

I think Eclipse has an option for that feature on whether or not those bars are driven by local history or by the VCS. 
I could find no such option in Netbeans.

> I could find no such option in Netbeans.
you are right - there is no such feature in netbeans yet

we were already thinking about doing something like that - the LH-inline-diff would either work against the last version
in LH or against a state given by a specified time

Is there any possibility of this being implemented?  Seems like it is quite an old request but it is something I miss from Aptana and Eclipse.

I reset the target milestone from 7.2 to TBD, because 7.2. has already been released a long time ago.
