TFS2010: Visualization of merging partial changes in changeset

November 11, 2009

Yesterday (during the Source Code Management session of Brian Harry at TechEd 2009 in Berlin), I noticed for the first time that merging partial changes in a changeset is also clearly visible afterwards. I just found some time between sessions to test it out …

In the screenshot above you may notice that changeset 9 (dev branch) is merged to the main branch. But look at the yellow color of the bar after the merge and the tooltip that is shown when I hover over changeset 11. Changeset 9 consisted of 2 different files that were modified while the merge operation took only 1 modified file in changeset 11. Valuable information!
