Re: Feature Request: diff projects

maybe i have an idea how to add a select menu of more than 50 "projects" to meld. Please see the screenshot i attached.
If we add a new tab here witch lists all projects in a list or a tree view it's very easy to filter the list by typing something. Link in Nautilus if you are in the file tree and start typing.

What do you think about this?

I don't know how we'd come up with a decent interface that copes with 50 'projects'. Basically, it seems that you'd like recent-files functionality in Meld. We already keep a history of directories and files that you compare. The logical extension of this would be to keep history for pairs (or triplets) that make up a comparison. That's not unreasonable. I'm not sure that it would be particularly usable, but if someone wants to prototype it, that would be great.
