The History view window of a project or a file is available by the command "Show file history" from the IDE. Besides history viewing, the window provides many additional functionalities for working with a separate file. History window can also show repository revisions tree (aka repository graph). Revisions tree shows branch and tag relations.
The "Project history" and "File log" view modes are very similar. The most importnat part is the bottom grid which is called revisions grid. By default revisions grid shows only 20 last revisions. If you need to dig deeper you have to press "Next 20 revisions" button. When all revisions will be retrieved button will be disabled. In the revisions grid you can select active revision or mark several revisions. All controls below revisions grid show infomation or perform actions for currently selected active revision.
