    5359=== Examining Differences Between Revisions
     
    5965One of the core features of version control systems is the possibility to work simultaneously on different ''Lines of Developments'', commonly called "branches". Trac enables you to examine the exact differences between such branches.

    61 Using the '''View changes ...''' button in the TracBrowser allows you to enter ''From:'' and ''To:'' path/revision pairs. The resulting set of differences consist of the changes that should be applied to the ''From:'' content to get to the ''To:'' content.
     67Following the '''View changes ...''' button in the TracBrowser leads to the diff page, where you can enter ''From:'' and ''To:'' path/revision pairs. The resulting set of differences consist of the changes that should be applied to the ''From:'' content to get to the ''To:'' content.

    6369For convenience, it is possible to invert the roles of the ''old'' and the ''new'' path/revision pairs by clicking the ''Reverse Diff'' link on the changeset page.
