Hello! On one of the projects that I contribute to ( https://sourceforge.net/projects/blacknova/ ), we recently were upgraded to the 'new' subversion code view. (What is the name for the old and new viewer, other than old/new?)
By which I mean, when you go to the project page, and choose "Code" it directs you to https://sourceforge.net/p/blacknova/code/2463/tree/ . The old system ( http://blacknova.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/blacknova/branches/ ), is still accessible, and has several advantages over the 'new' code view.
Specifically, the old code viewer lets you sort by date so you can quickly look through the latest changes. It also lets you have a side-by-side diff view, instead of a above-below diff view. I use both of those daily, and don't see a suitable replacement in the new code viewer.
Will the old code view remain available? If so, is it possible for us to have the "Code" button link to that instead of the new view? And finally, is there a chance that the 'new' code viewer will add these features (and if so, when)?
If you'd like me to open a feature request ticket for the new code viewer, I'm happy to do so if that will help move things along.
