Description Brion Vibber 2005-07-01 09:36:33 UTC
The history list includes two columns of diff links next to each 
revision: a 'cur' diffing against the then-latest revision, and 
a 'last' link diffing against the revision immediately previous 
to the one on that row.

The URLs for the 'cur' links use 'diff=0', which does the diff 
against whatever the latest revision is _at the time you visit_ 
the URL. So if you copy and paste the URL meaning to show a 
particular edit, your link will in the future show different 

Now that current revisions have ID numbers in 1.5, these links 
should use the actual revision number.
