Website history

there''s a feature I''m missing in OE (or maybe I just didn''t find it...):
A website history

Lets say I downloaded a website on 1st september, then update it on 2nd september.
Now a page changed, maybe it has been removed, I wasn''t logged in (cookie based auth) and downloaded just the error message - the old version is overwritten. I''d like to be able to choose something like "history - 09/01/08" and then view the project as I downloaded it on this date. Of course I should also be able to change from this version to the version of 2nd september. A history for the whole project would be a really useful thing.
Maybe you could even expand this, e.g. if page a.htm changed, add a notice at the top of this html site, so you can export the project and if you call a.htm you see the current version but also a notice that this page changed and an old version if available (which then can be viewed by clicking the according link).

I hope this can be done, let me know what you think about it or if something isn''t clear.

You are right. We are thinking about such feature for some time already. It is not easy to implement, but we still plan to add it in future. However I cannot tell for sure when it will be done.
