History of Project Dialog Box (Explorer and Plug-in)

Visual Studio 2005

Displays history information for the selected project, including all significant events, such as deletion of files or subprojects, addition of files or subprojects, labeling and renaming of items, and check-ins. For each significant event, the dialog box shows the affected file or subproject, the user who performed the action, the date and time of the event, and the description of the event.
