AnkhSVN - General

Welcome to the AnkhSVN feedback forum. Do you have an idea? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one? We want to hear from you!

We track development issues in our issue tracker. Please add references to relevant issues.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Monitor for file changes and auto refresh status

    Monitor for changes to files in your project and in the .svn folders and automatically refresh the SVN change status. This will make using third-party tools easier, like Expression Blend.

    • exclude lists

      Multiple exclude lists to hide elements that should not (yet) committed, would be nice.

        • keep messages in 'pending changes' tab between sessions

          Currently if a message is added to the pending changes tab, it will be discarded upon closing visual studio. It'd be nice if these could be kept between sessions, to help remember any changes since the last commit...

              Popup menu? You probably mean a context-menu somewhere, but on which control is the main question…

              [Reporter answered: I mean when right-click on the Text Editor.]

              Current status: This will be implemented with some extra UI updates to the commit dialog. (You will get into the commit editor of the project containing the file with the current file checked and other changes unchecked)

            • Working copy backup using diff/patch files.

              Add a "Backup working changes" button to the AnkhSVN toolbar. Configure the backup location in Tools > Options -> Source Control. Include tags in the path which can be replaced with the Solution name. This will allow developers to easily backup their current work without checking it into subversion. Having your working copy backed up to a network share, would be useful for day-to-day work that doesn't warrant its own feature branch.

              An option to automatically backup at regular intervals would minimize lost work in the event of a machine failure.

              This could possibly be scripted using the command line,…

                Currently a patch file can’t express all information in a working copy. A new feature partly available in subversions trunk should make it possible to fully capture all changes (including copying and renaming files) in the new svnpatch format.

                A full implementation of this feature will probably require Subversion api changes that are scheduled for 1.7 or 1.8.

              • Allow update when I lock out of date file

                Now, when I have to lock out of date file, I only get warning message "One or more your local resources are out of date.. and so on" with "OK" button. It would be better have dialog with something similar "One or more your local resources are out of date. Do you want get latest version?" with button Yes, No.

                • Add Username Filter to History Viewer

                  It would be very useful to be able to filter the history viewer for a particular user/developer. This has two benefits: 1) When performing code reviews it is helpful to see revisions pushed by a specific developer 2) Our CI system produces several checkins and having to wade through meaningless revisions (in the context of Visual Studio - the CI server checks in an obfuscator file which doesn't affect the solution).

                    • Add mini-AnkhSVN plugin implementing the old MSSCCI api

                      This would allow using a subset of the AnkhSVN 2.X support from older Visual Studios and other applications that use the MSSCCI api.

                      • Add TFS issue tracker integration

                        Although TFS is generally used as a combined issue tracker and source repository, many of the projects at my company use SVN for source control due to legacy reasons and TFS for work item tracking.

                        I'd love to see the ability to link SVN changes to TFS Work Items using a built-in issue tracker extension.

                        • Shown Columns, Sorting and Grouping should be remembered in Pending Changes window

                          I very often find myself using the "Modified" column in the Pending Changes window and sorting by it to find the most recent changes I made amidst a bunch of other modified files that I don't (yet) want to commit. Unfortunately AnkhSVN does not remember those settings, forcing me to re-apply them after every VS restart, respectively for each VS instance I open.

                          I'd be very happy to see it remembering aforementioned settings similar to how Column Sizes are already stored as well.

                          PS: Please also investigate the option of re-applying the Column Sort when the view content changes. Currently…

                              I would like to see a better grouping of changes to different repository paths in the pending changes dialog.

                              E.g. an empty line between files/file groups from different repository locations.

                                Hi, this interface was designed to create multiple suggestions as multiple items (so they can all collect votes).

                                When you right click on the PC-Window header you can choose different columns to sort and group on. I think you are asking for group by Working Copy here.

                                If you create multiple items I can close this suggestion for you.

                              • the min log size?

                                does AnkhSVN can set the min log size as TortoiseSVN use tsvn:logminsize property?

                                • Commit action should unlock file even if no other changes have been made.

                                  When a file is locked, but no other changes have been made to the file, "Commit changes" becomes active in the interface, but selecting it does not unlock the file (and therefore commit changes remains active). This behaviour also exists in Tortoise, but is equally annoying there.

                                  • Allow viewing of last version of deleted file from Pending Changes window

                                    When you delete a file from your project, you are not able to diff or annotate it, because your local changes are gone. However, it can be handy to be able to view the last version from the repository from the Pending Changes area, if you need to refresh your memory regarding what you deleted, to help in writing up the comment.

                                    • default from/to comparison

                                      When diffing a file, I'd like to be able to set the default from type and to type that are specified so that the shift key bypass is more useful to me.

                                      The defaults of Base and Working are useless to me as that shows what I've done locally - which, if I'm committing as often as I should, I know what I've done. Being able to default to Latest Version instead of Base would save me lots of clicks.

                                      • Support multi repository more efficiency?

                                        we have a sln which contains about 30 projects. 2/3 of them in repository A,others in repository B. repository B contains all the helper projects like I/O read and write and so on.

                                        when update reopsitory B, ankh update those porjects one by one, that's Low efficiency!!

                                        • Fix 'Failed to save open documents before committing' error

                                          I would have submitted this to the issue tracker or mailing list, but both were so user-unfriendly that I thought I'd do it here.

                                          The issue (present in 2.1.10129.17) seems to be that, when no documents are open in VS, committing changes results in an error dialog saying "Failed to save open documents before committing." I finally figured out a workaround - open a document before trying to commit.
