I'm coming from a TortoiseSVN background and decided to give TortoiseHg a try. One thing I got really used to with TortoiseSVN was the SVN Repo-Explorer, which worked quite similarly to Windows Explorer. However, when I tried to use TortoiseHg's Repository Explorer, what I got was something else, it was more like TortoiseSVN's Show Log. It showed me what the recent commits were and what files were changed and even had nifty graphs. However, I'm still left wanting for TortoiseSVN's Repo-Explorer.
Does TortoiseHg have anything like this? How am I supposed to poke around the Repository if I can only view changed stuff?

I have a cloned mercurial repository (and working copy) in my own machine. Is it possible if I want to know the parent path to a specific file? For example, I cloned a repository that contains a file at
and file_a is located in my machine at
Is there a command that I can use to get the parent path (the first url) of file_a ??!
hg paths will show the repository path, and hg root your current repository. I think you'd have to do the path munging yourself, however.
I understand hg extensions can be as simple as a python file, so might be easy to write yourself.
