AppCode 2022.2 Help

History tab

The History tab is added to the Version Control tool window ⌥ 9 on invoking the Show History or Show History for Selection action. A new tab is created for each file or directory with the following name: History: <file_name>. The set of toolbar buttons differs slightly depending on your version control system.

The star next to a commit marks commits where the author and the user who committed the changes are different.
