.NET 4 and Change Set Listing

[Do you tweet? Follow me on Twitter @matthawley]

We deployed the latest version of the CodePlex software today.

Upgraded to .NET 4

While normally we wouldn’t mention an infrastructure upgrade, we decided that with the recent launch of .NET 4, our more technical audience wouldn’t mind knowing that we are constantly evolving. In fact, we have been running prior beta, escrow and release candidate builds of .NET 4 for several months now. Along with this, we have also upgraded to ASP.NET MVC 2.

Change Set Listing

Another requested feature from our users has been to view the listing of files that have been added, modified, or deleted in a particular change set.


With this page, we are finally highlighting an existing (but rarely known) feature, viewing a diff of the file. The “view diff” link will be present for edited files, and will open a new window with the difference view. To see this in action, view a change set for WikiPlex.


The difference engine (DiffPlex) was built-in house by Matt Manela and is available as an open source project on CodePlex.

    This is great. Awesome work.

    One quick note. On the web diff, what are your thoughts at placing a navigation bar at the top of the page so you can jump to next diff or previous diff. Could be helpful for large files with diffs that are a good ways apart. I’d love to help.

    Thanks again for implementing the Change Set Listing . . . this is going to save so much time!!!
