        As explained in this blog post (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2015/10/08/how-we-use-user-voice-to-make-a-better-product.aspx), we had updated the status of this suggestion to “Under Review” to let you know we are tracking it on our backlog. To better indicate which one we are actively working on or which ones are on our 6-month plan, we introduced the states “Started” and “Planned”. The goal is to give an update on in progress suggestions at least every 3 months. This suggestion is still on our backlog, but they are not part of the 6-month plan.

        I would be delighted if Source Control Explorer would remember the column widths I set the last time I adjusted the column widths.

          One other nit to pick... if I resize the compare window to take better advantage of available screen real estate, please have it *remember* the size I last sized it to. The current tool always reverts back to its default window size.

          Just as long as the new comparison tool isn't overly-complex and makes things as easy or easier to visually-compare as the current venerable tool. There have been a LOT of attempts at making visual comparers over the years and the old crusty VSS/TFS tool is still a clearer compare than many many of those subsequent attempts. One thing though that is obvious is it should support right-click copy.. the current one does support Ctrl+C copy but anything that supports Ctrl+C should also support right-click context menu copy.

            I agree... I am constantly needing to resize columns to see the text that has been cut-off by far-too-narrow default column widths. This gets worse, depending on what dialog you're talking about, if you use namespacing like MyCompany.MyAppSuite.MyCurrentApp.MyOtherNamespace, etc. etc. Or AT LEAST make all column widths "sticky" (i.e. saved in the registry or other file) such that I only have to resize the blame things once and once only.
