Subversion Tip – What Has Changed

Have you ever wanted to know what others on your team have changed BEFORE you get the latest changes? Well, you can.

From Windows Explorer, use TortoiseSVN’s context menu to “show log”. From the log messages report, you can right-click on the most recent revision and “Compare with Working Copy.”

You’ll get a window like the below with the files that have changed on the left and the differences on the right. I’m using TortoiseMerge for my diff tool so you might see something a little different. I’ve also switched the left and right views so my working copy is on the left and the latest revision version is on the right.
