It would be very helpful in day-to-day scenario if users would be able to see a list of files changed in recent commits.

The thing is: As you work, you keep the files you work on open. Then you commit, create a pull request, close everything and move on to another task. Then the PR is reviewed and you need to change something, so you'd like to instantly open all the files that you have changed in that PR. And this is not currenly not easy in NetBeans.

It could be somehow integrated with the Projects window - users could select the commit he wants to compare to, and the files would appear green/blue/gray as they do now, only compared to chosen commit instead of the latest one.

Also, the context menu on a project could have an item "open files changed since commit..." and the submenu would list, say, last 10 commits.

Thanks for considering this.
