Description christo 2006-07-03 16:07:09 UTC
It would be nice to view the changes using either the graphical or textual 
diff between different CVS branches. This would probably be the current 
selected branch and another branch of the user's choice.

Obviously it makes sense to extend the request to graphically (or textually) view diffs between two arbitrary tags (or
dates) on an arbitrary selection. Use case: If a problem was found in a build tagged with build_N but is not in a build
tagged with build_N-1 it would quite useful to browse the changes between the two builds in NB's sophisticated diff viewer.
