Rosario Preview #1 - Exciting Enhancements Of The Version Control

This is the first post in a series I'm writing about Rosario's tidings.

The first taster will be about the new enhancements in the Source Control area.

So, what's new there?

  • Editable source location field

Editable source location field 

this enables us to navigate to other place in the tree easier, also copy this location.

  • Last checkin column

Last checkin column

we don't need to open the history in order to know when the file was checked-in.

  • Hyperlinks to local working folders

  • Simplified workspace mappings

    • Now you can  cloak folders from the mappings
    • Mapping a folder from the source control itself without opening the workspace manager.

Map to local folder:


Cloak folder:



  • A new Add Files to Source Control wizard and support for drag and drop from Windows Explorer to Source Control Explorer

We can add files from the tree and a wizard is opened. The wizard helps us to map a folder if it's not mapped and even exclude items.





  • Enhanced, non-modal conflict resolution experience, integrated into the pending changes tool window



  • New history view that shows labels applied to a file
