The SVN version of tasks displays the TODO notes from all open documents. With various un-related files open, the list can quickly get overcrowded, while the TODO notes for the current document can get (visually) lost among the lines.

Would it be possible to implement a "show tasks for all open documents" so that the user be able to uncheck it and have in the tasks window only the TODO notes of the current, visible file? This should help users to concentrate on the work to be done in the active file, and avoid being distracted by tasks from other files.

    Added an appropriate option in SVN defaulting to process only the current document which is the same as the old behaviour.

    One minor issue with the new default option:
    When switching between documents, the list of tasks will always be shown from the beginning. This is fine when the documents have few tasks. However, this can become cumbersome when one of the documents has a long list of tasks (say, 20), and simply switching for and back will make you to scroll to the exact line where you left.

    Would it be difficult to make the plug-in remember the state of the tasks window?

    It wasn't as one could expect but it is now implemented in SVN :).
    I'm not completely sure whether it works stable in every case already, so feedback is welcome.

    It works whenever a task is selected, and does not when no tasks are selected. The implementation looks fine to me. Thanks!
