New Local History implementation

New and old Local History now work simultaneously. Therefore IDEA will consume a bit more memory than usual.
You can access new LH dialog with Show History (New)... action.

...

  • tracking most file changes
  • showing file and directory history and difference
  • basic file rollback (rename, content change)
  • refreshing on file types changes

Unimplemented:

  • full file rollback (move, parent directory recovery)
  • directory rollback
  • refreshing on system file type changes
  • different encoding support
  • user labels
  • extended history table in Show History dialogs

...

  • history is now bounded by 5 days period.
  • there is no storage rebuild feature yet, thus if last save corrupts and exception throws while loading LH you can delete storage manually by removing system/new_lvcs directory.
  • if you experience some critical problems with new Local History that block you work, you can disable it by defining newlocalvcs.disabled jvm-macro in you run scriptmay occur with file encodings

Background VCS Operations

The following VCS operations can now be performed in the background:

  • Perforce add, remove, edit and integrate
  • CVS add and remove

Also, Perforce changelist synchronization no longer blocks the UI thread.
