Using 2.0.0.3 and comparing directories with large
number of files, refreshing using Edit | Refresh or
pressing F5 causes a full directory scan.

It would be convenient if individual files could be
selected from the Directory Comparison Result, right
click to produce the popup context menu and select from
it a Refresh menu item to refresh those selected files.

    Good idea. And of course shortcut key Shift-F5 or Ctrl+F5.

    Increasing priority. This is pre-requirement for several
    other fixes and features.

    Ok, finally I have required backend changes done for this.

    Assigning to me. I expect to submit patches in few days, so
    next beta version will have this implemented.

    Ok, two-phase dircompare patch is now in CVS, took longer I
    expected, but there was some difficulties with architecture.
    I have now working patch for this with UI. Its currently
    simple, just one context menu item which refreshes selected
    items from compare.

    I'm not yet quite sure if this should be in context menu or
    in main menu. Also, I need a bit more testing in cases files
    are added/deleted so that item status changes from unique to
    different for example. These aren't trivial cases to handle.

    Patch applied to CVS trunk (2.3). So this will be
    implemented in next 2.3.x release (experimental or beta
    release).

    Closing as fixed.
