Eclipse CVS compare
Comparing local and CVS versions of files with Eclipse

Eclipse's Synchonize feature shows you how many incoming, outgoing and conflicting files exists. It then creates a browsable directory structure for you to quickly view, compare and edit these files.
See the example picture below. It shows we have 21 outgoing, no incoming and no conflicting changes.

First you must tell Eclipse about the new branch.
WARNING This proceedure will delete all files in your project directory no matter if they are part of the CVS tree or not. If you have any files you want to save, back them up now.
