PhpStorm 8.0.0 Web Help

Local History makes it possible to view changes made to a certain file or a whole directory. Each entry in the Local History dialog box is displayed with its time stamp, action and optional label. So doing, the local history for a file includes all changes that affect both the selected file and the whole project; local history for a folder shows changes to the source code tree in general. You can explore changes, selecting the respective row in the Local History dialog box.
