Branch explorer tourIt's very likely you've drawn a diagram like this one at least once... (and I'll bet probably you do it very often).
It is just a tipycal branch diagram, showing the relationships between branches, merges and labels (changesets are not normally displayed when you draw the diagram manually :-P). It clearly shows when a merge happened (from a project point of view) or when a label (and hence a baseline) was applied.
The folks at Microsoft's Team System group are dreaming about releasing something similar in the future.
The good news is that Plastic already have it! :-)
The branch explorer released with Plastic 2.0 is all about representing branch evolution... the kind of stuff you'd usually draw on paper... but now rendered at your screen.
So, what I'll be showing is a quick tour through the branch explorer, and how an entire branching and merging cycle can run from it.
Watch the entire tour here!
