Not for history things which I think are only stored on the server!

My environment is actually Eclipse with the pydev and subclipse
plugins. How do you get the side-by-side comparison - I don't think I
have seen that except when trying to do a merge?
However, it is not just a matter of the side by side comparison. There
are MANY other features of ViewVC that I miss.
For example, the log of changes at any point in the tree - Allura
'history' only gives you a log from the root, wherever you are in the
tree (so you can't get a log of changes to just trunk, or just one
particular file), and to add insult, the log entries are abbreviated.
For example, the ability to do diffs between ANY two commits of a file
for example, the ability to see all the changes for any particular
) and from there to get either the log for that file before then, or
the diff report.
