This is the first post in a series I'm writing about Rosario's tidings.
The first taster will be about the new enhancements in the Source Control area.
So, what's new there?
Editable source location field
this enables us to navigate to other place in the tree easier, also copy this location.
Last checkin column
we don't need to open the history in order to know when the file was checked-in.
Hyperlinks to local working folders
great feature – click on this link opens the local mapped folder .
Simplified workspace mappings
- Now you can cloak folders from the mappings
- Mapping a folder from the source control itself without opening the workspace manager.
Map to local folder:
A new Add Files to Source Control wizard and support for drag and drop from Windows Explorer to Source Control Explorer
We can add files from the tree and a wizard is opened. The wizard helps us to map a folder if it's not mapped and even exclude items.
Enhanced, non-modal conflict resolution experience, integrated into the pending changes tool window
New history view that shows labels applied to a file
