    22 '''Note:''' The browser does not use the Subversion access configuration so if you restrict read access to part of the repository in Subversion that same restriction will not be in place in the Trac browser. (Support for this functionality '''is''' being worked on for future Trac versions)
     27At the top of the browser page, there's a drop-down menu which you can use
     28to select some interesting places in the repository, for example branches or tags.
     29This is sometimes referred to as the ''browser quickjump'' facility.
     30The precise meaning and content of this menu depends on your backend.
     31For Subversion, this list contains by default a few branches (`trunk` and any sub-folder of the latest `branches` top-level folder) and a few tags (any sub-folder of the latest `tags` top-level folder). This can be [TracIni#svn-section configured] for more advanced cases.

    24 == RSS Support ==
     33If you're using a Javascript enabled brower, 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 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.

    26 The browser module supports RSS syndication to monitor changes to a file. To subscribe to an RSS feed of the revision log for a file, open its revision log in the browser and click the orange 'XML' icon at the bottom of the page. For more information on RSS support in Trac, see TracRss.
     35For the Subversion backend, some additional features are available:
     36 - support for `svn:needs-lock` property
     37 - support for `svn:externals` property (which can be [TracIni#svn:externals-section configured])
