Every time you commit a file to the CVS repository, a new revision is created. Each revision is identified by a number (for example, 1.1 or 126.96.36.199). Along with each revision is stored the author, the date, and a commit comment.
To view the resource history for a file:
Note: The History view also shows you all version and branch tags that are associated with the file.
Tip: You can show different types of revisions (your options are: Local and Remote revisions, only Remote revisions or only Local revisions) by using the History view's mode toggle buttons. These toggle buttons are located on the History view toolbar.
Tip: You can drag and drop a file from one of the navigation views into the History view instead of choosing the menu item.
Tip: You can have the History view update automatically to the history of the file in the active editor by enabling the Link with Editor item in the view's toolbar.
