How to see history of file rename in Stash?

In Java, we often change "classname" - causing corresponding filename to be changed. However, when I ask to see the history of file - it loses the history before rename. I understand that git treat 'mv' as 'rm' + 'add'. But git-history has option '--follow' to see the full history before rename. However, this option is not available. Is there a way to see history with '--follow'.

We have the same issue with the missing --follow option.

After a SVN import (with the Svn2Git tool), when browsing the history for a renamed/moved file, a lot of history is missing because we are not able to use the --follow option.

I'll open an issue to track this subject.
