Hi Sabine,

There is a method version inspector which uses gitfiletree [1] doesn't loose the old versions of the methods, and it will show versions older than the image (i.e. all versions stored in the git repository holding the package). It's packaged with the AltBrowser [2].

Objet : [Pharo-dev] loosing versions of method after deleting and creating      new


sometimes I have got the following situation:

1) I delete a method
2) I recognize uhhhh, I need it! it was wrong to delete it!
3) I re-write it (or get it from changes file or old image)
4) now, the versions of the method are lost

I would have the following wishes for this situation:
a) it should be easier for me to get back the deleted method (easier as
searching the changes file or load old version of image)
b) after re-writing the method, I want the versions of this method back.

Perhaps there is another way to handle this and I did not know it.
For a while I was renaming methods (e.g. from "methodname" to
"methodnameOLD") instead of deleting it but this is not the way it should be

I was used to have this functionality in envy.

What do you think about this?
