SVN Revision Graph

'SVN Revision Graph' is a graphical representation of history for any resource. Using Revision Graph we can see a resource history with copy operation, applied for this resource. Represented information includes information about branches and tags for resource, so it allows to see a revision history for a resource and all its branches and tags. It's a main advantage of the Revision Graph over a History View, because History View is able to display only a history for resource, but not its copies. As the result Revision Graph is very useful in case if branches and tags are used, so users can see the whole picture of resource changes together with all branches and tags, where it was used on the one screen.

Revision Graph features:

Revision Graph options:

You can specify whether to show merge info and other options in revision graph options dialog:

SVN Revision Graph Options

Option Description Default
Show all revisions Specifies whether to show all revisions or filter them on predefined default criterions. This option can be useful for large graphs. Disabled
Show merge info Specifies whether to fetch from repository merge information and show it on revision graph. It's available only for SVN 1.5 and higher clients. Note that despite this option is enabled there can be servers which don't support merge information. Enabled

This is how 'SVN Revision Graph' looks like:

Merge information:

If you selected to show merge information and there were merges then merge information is presented on graph. Each revision node may have incoming and(or) outgoing merges which are shown on revision node by corresponding blue arrows directed to left or right. For each type of merges there's number near the arrow which means number of merges, for incoming merges there are also shown revision numbers (in brackets) affected by merges. By default, merge connections between nodes are not shown, as there can be lots of merge connections which can significantly complicate graph presentation and understanding. If you want to see merge connections for revision node you can either click on blue merge arrow on revision node or call corresponding action from node's context menu such as 'Show Outgoing Merges' or 'Show Incoming Merges'. In order to differ merge connections from general connections merge connections are shown in blue. If you want to hide merge connections for revision node you can either call corresponding context menu actions ('Hide Outgoing Merges' or 'Hide Incoming Merges') or call 'Clear Merge Connections' action from toolbar which hides all merge connections on graph. This is how merge information is presented:
