Description Antonin Nebuzelsky 2005-10-06 10:29:21 UTC
What would be really cool and usefull differentiator for our versioning support
in the IDE is generating changelogs for selected project(s). The UI could look
pretty similar to the Search History window. User would choose two points (two
timestamps or/and two CVS tags) and the IDE would look through all CVS logs for
the included files and generate a changelog in the format

timestamp1 - username1 - log file message1:
* <list of all files changed with this commit>
* file1: revisionA
* file2: revisionB

timestamp2 - username2 - log file message2:
* <list of all files changed with this commit>
* file1: revisionA
* file2: revisionB


The list of files should be displayed as hyperlinked text. Clicking on a
filename would open the file, clicking on the revision number would open the
diff view on that file.

User should be able to specify if the changelog is sorted by timestamps or by

User should also be able to save the changelog to a file.
