More information in Recent Changes window
I suggest you show more information in the Recent Changes window. This is the window which shows what happened to the repository, but it does so in a way which makes it suboptimal. In particular:
1) If a remote change occured, I want to be able to see (for changes on the repository which I do not yet have):
a) The committer
b) The revision number (so I can see which changes are part of one commit)
c) The commit message
d) (optional) The commit date and time
2) The "compare" SplitButton defaults to "Compare with Original Version". However, in this window it should default to "Compare with latest version", since this is the window to view repository changes.
3) If no local change is done to a file (such as when a file changed in the repository), the "compare" button is disabled. This means that to see what changed in the file, I have to right-click on the file, select the Subversion menu, select "Compare...", change "From Type" to "Latest version". If you do nothing else out of this list, please enable the SplitButton!
