Annotate/Blame is part of Visual Studio since 2010

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/09/26

I totally forgot to blog about the Annotate feature that has been introduced in Visual Studio 2010 (lots of Tortoise SVN and GIT users will know it as blame).

It is a view of a historic (can be the current) version of a source file, adding before each line a note containing the revision number and author of that line.

Great to find out when a particular change was introduced and by who.

Here is the MSDN documentation about annotate: View File Changes Using Annotate.

The not so good feature that you can only use this feature from the Source Control Explorer window, not from any other part of Visual Studio (unlike History, Compare, etc).

If you have an older version of Visual Studio, then use this:
Annotate (also known as blame) is now a power toy – Buck Hodges – Site Home – MSDN Blogs.
