Permalink to latest version of file


There should be a permalink to the latest version of a file in the source control. I.e. http://codeplex.codeplex.com/sourcecontrol/directoryA/directoryB/file.cs would be a link to the latest revision of file.cs in DirectoryB.

This is perfect for applications that need to download information without the hassle of updating that file on a seperate website when you could just update it through source control.

I have a project on CodePlex that I like to use as sample code for answering questions on StackOverflow (or other Q&A sites). It would be nice if I could link to the latest version of the file instead of a specific version or have to tell people the path so they can navigate on their own.

If what you want is for PEOPLE to view it (like what @bbrewder wrote), then that's already supported with URLs like:
