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".

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.

    As some of you might (or might not) know my work on AnkhSVN, SharpSvn and Subversion is paid by CollabNet.

    So the development is partially funded by companies that subscribe to CollabNet support packages (which btw. include AnkhSVN support).

    We are currently not looking at opening other ways of funding, but casting a lot of votes on this request might make us change our mind.

  2. Do not crash when comparing csproj files.

    When I am reviewing before a checkin it is good if I review EVERYTHING.
    The fact that your tool thinks a csproj file is binary is not helpful.

    Your greatest strength is being aware of visual studio.
    Good Luck.

  4. Make it possible to enable "Auto Lock" without setting "needs-lock" for files

    If I understand correctly subversion-lock on files that don't have the needs-lock property set, can still be committed by other users, thus not changing the behavior that much, if locked. Having every source file change "Auto Lock" would therefore inform the user that the file is worked on by someone, before him/her starting to work on it, without "upsetting" the "svn philosophy" too much...
    We have some sensitive code that would benefit greatly from this. Also, when in a major rewrite of a lot of code, as we are now, merging sometimes is as much work as the actual coding…

  5. need access to older version of msi installer

    An update cannot be applied to Anhksvn without the currently installed version of the msi. This msi is no longer available for download and the cached version was destroyed during hardware failures. Therefore I cannot update to the most stable version without having the current msi version and I am unable to find it on your site.

  7. When updating, file are briefly shown as changed

    I can see a new issue in 2.3 (SVN 1.7) - when I update from the Pending changes, some files are for a brief moment shown as red (changed, added, or deleted). This happens only for a short while and disappears once the update is completed.

    The best place to implement this would be in the Subversion core libraries. Otherwise some subversion clients would work while others fail.

    (The proxy settings in Tools→Options→Source Control→Subversion also apply to all other Subversion clients, as they just change the shared registry location)

  10. Bug VS2010 automatically lock files on change without user confirmation

    Version 2.3.11269 does not appear to pay attention to the setting "automatically lock files on change without user confirmation". Even when it is checked, the confirmation dialog appears.

  12. It would be very useful to have an option in the context menu that allows you to copy the filepaths of selected check-ins.

    It would be very useful to have an option in the context menu that allows you to copy the filepaths of selected files like the tortoise interface has.

  14. Download button is really not obvious

    I suggest you put a download link that clearly states: "Download", at put it under a "Download Links" section, rather than only an icon displayed in some kind of area that looks like a notice or ad section that eyes naturally ignore.

  15. Access Developer Extension

    I hope the project can add a wrapper for old-style MSSCCI, which is used by Access Developer Extension.

    I will yield the project to get into the environ with only VBA.

    It should be possible to implement a MSSCCI provider using .Net 4.0 as that can work side by side in .Net 1.X applications.

    This would allow some level of code reuse. (But none of the current AnkhSVN developers is personally interested in this feature at this time)

  16. Add "Open With..." option to file context menu in Pending Changes

    The context menu for modified files in the Pending Changes tool window is lacking an "Open With..." item.

    "Open With" is useful when reviewing changes that open up a full designer - for example, complex XAML Workflows can take a very long time to open and occasionally it makes more sense to open them with the XML Editor.

    This is true for just about all files with designers.

  17. save the 'Pending Change' Message between application restarts

    Ever written a long ass commit message, documented everything perfectly, only to then have VS crash on you? You come back and all that beautiful typing is gone! Documentation, all over again!

  18. Anonymise the email addresses on the error reports

    I used to get NO spam whatsoever, because I've always been so careful not to keep my address off the internet. Recently I've been getting heaps of spam and I wondered where it came from so I searched for my email address on google and then got a page of hits on this ankhsvn site. I did not expect my address to be publicised when I submitted error reports, especially not with my full name!

  19. I clicked download now button for ankh update

    How about starting a progress bar to show the download is working? I am taken to another web page that doesn't say anything about downloads. How do I download?

  20. View older revisions in Repository Explorer

    Currently the Repository Explorer shows the current state of the repository. It would be nice to be able to see an older state (ie. older revision).

    For example, if a file or directory is deleted, currently the only way to find it is to browse through the History Viewer, trying to find it there.
