Quick Plastic SCM tour The ‘items view’ shows what you have loaded on your workspace. You can check what you have loaded and also perform all the typical version control operations. The ‘pending changes’ is the main view you will be using from the GUI to find changes and checkin. Here it is showing the ‘changelists’, a custom way to group changed files in your workspace. The Branch Explorer renders how the repository evolves and you can perform all branching operations from here. More here The ‘changesets’ view displaying a list of changesets. All views can be customized with queries (find changesets where...) ‘Pending changes’ showing the embedded side by side diff. It makes really easy to review changes prior to checkin. Diffing an entire branch and displaying the embedded ‘xdiff viewer’ tracking moved code (refactored code). More here The ‘dark theme’ (all black) displaying a Branch Explorer where changesets are colored by user. List of known repositories. A more complex Branch Explorer rendering the legend and also a subtractive merge. Properties of a branch, displaying all merges where the branch was involved (both merge-from and merge-to). List of shelves stored in the server. A shelve is a temporary change also known as ‘stash’ in other version control systems. More here The merge window with a merge in progress. One directory conflict, one file modified by two contributors and a number of automatic merges.
