Target version:Candidate for next major release


The "Blame" view of GitHub and Gitlab has a feature called "View blame prior to this change". With the feature, you can easily jump to an older change of the line.

I think it would be useful if Redmine also has the feature. Currently, it requires some manual steps to see older changes in the "Annotate" view of Redmine.

#2 Updated by Go MAEDA 2 months ago

  • Target version set to Candidate for next major release

#3 Updated by Mischa The Evil about 1 month ago

  • Subject changed from View annotate prior to the change to Git: View annotate prior to the change

+1 This is a real handy feature when browsing (Git) repositories a lot. Given the usability of this change I wonder if this is something that could be implemented (easily) for other SCMs (Hg, SVN, ...) too?!
