Customize column headings in repository file view

In the current file views for a SourceTree repositiory, the only columns visible are status Icon (?), Filename, and Path.

Is there any way to add columns or customize this view to include information such as Date Modified, Date Created, Kind, etc.?

If this is not possible, could it be added as a feature? Being able to sort the file listing on this information would be highly useful.

This isn't supported right now, and the main reason is that it would add additional overhead to these views. The views are built entirely from the results of hg/git, which cannot report the information above as part of their operation. The only way to retrieve them would be to perform additional queries via the OS before the information is displayed. People are really sensitive about performance so I'm reluctant to add this as a standard part of the list - even if it's an option, people will turn it on without really understanding its additional overhead and then complain that SourceTree has got slower ;)

Ok, thanks Steve.

I didn't realize what would be involved. You're right about being sensitive to performance, and I understand not wanting to risk slowing down ST in any way.

Thanks for the quick reply.

SmartGit also shows this information without major overhead.
