The changes view would be far more useful if it yielded a way to see the actual changes within the files. Currently, for git, it lists the commit ID, and the files in the commit.
It would be nice if it either:
- did a gitdiff to see within the affected files, or
- provided a way to specify a URL (e.g. of the git-repo, of fisheye, etc) so that you could navigate from changes to something capable of exploring the change in more detail.
There are plugins, e.g. Last Changes, that do this but are additional effort to install and configure, and their output is not part of the standard 'Changes' view.
