     4The Trac repository browser can be used to browse specific revisions of directories
     5and files stored in the repository of the configured version control system.
    87Directory entries are displayed in a list with sortable columns. The list

     24''(since 0.11)'':
     26The color bar next to the Age column gives a visual indication of the age
     27of the last change to a file or directory. In the default configuration,
     28blue is older and red is newer, but this can be [TracIni#browser-section configured].
     30At the top of the browser page, there's a drop-down menu which you can use
     31to select some interesting places in the repository, for example branches or tags.
     32This is sometimes referred to as the ''browser quickjump'' facility.
     33The precise meaning and content of this menu depends on your backend.
     34For Subversion, this list contains by default the top-level trunk directory and sub-directories of the top-level branches and tags directories (`/trunk`, `/branches/*`, and `/tags/*`).  This can be [TracIni#svn-section configured] for more advanced cases.
     36If you're using a Javascript enabled browser, you'll be able to expand and collapse folders in-place by clicking on the arrow head at the right side of a folder. Alternatively, the [trac:TracKeys keyboard] can also be used for this: use 'j' and 'k' to go to the next or previous entry, and 'o' (or 'Enter') to toggle between expanded and collapsed state of the selected folder or for visiting the selected file.
     38For the Subversion backend, some additional features are available:
     39 - Displays the `svn:needs-lock` property
     40 - Support for the `svn:externals` property (which can be [TracIni#svn:externals-section configured])
     41 - The `svn:mime-type` property is used to select the syntax highlighter for rendering the file. For example, setting `svn:mime-type` to `text/html` will ensure the file is highlighted as HTML, regardless of the file extension. It also allows selecting the character encoding used in the file content. For example, if the file content is encoded in UTF-8, set `svn:mime-type` to `text/html;charset=utf-8`. The `charset=` specification overrides the default encoding defined in the `default_charset` option of the `[trac]` section of [TracIni#trac-section trac.ini].
