    68There are different kinds of ''change sets''.  Some correspond to revisions made in the repositories, others aggregate changes made in several revisions. Ultimately, any kind of difference can be shown.
     
    810The changeset view consists of two parts, the ''header'' and the ''diff views''.

    3436Below the header is the main part of the changeset, the diff view. Each file is shown in a separate section, each of which contains only the regions of the file that are affected by the changeset. There are two different styles to display the diffs: ''inline'' or ''side-by-side''. You can switch between the styles using the preferences form:

    4749When viewing a repository check-in, such as when following a changeset [wiki:TracLinks link] or a changeset event in the [wiki:TracTimeline timeline], Trac will display the exact changes made by the check-in.
     
    4951There will be also navigation links to the ''Previous Changeset'' to and ''Next Changeset''.

    5355Often you want to look at changes made on a file or on a directory spanning multiple revisions. The easiest way to get there is from the TracRevisionLog, where you can select the ''old'' and the ''new'' revisions of the file or directory, and then click the ''View changes'' button.

    57 One of the core features of version control systems is the possibility to work simultaneously on different ''Lines of Developments'', commonly called “branches”. Trac enables you to examine the exact differences between such branches.

    5961Using the '''View changes ...''' button in the TracBrowser allows you to enter ''From:'' and ''To:'' path/revision pairs. The resulting set of differences consist of the changes that should be applied to the ''From:'' content to get to the ''To:'' content.
     
    6163For convenience, it is possible to invert the roles of the ''old'' and the ''new'' path/revision pairs by clicking the ''Reverse Diff'' link on the changeset page.
