URL for head version of file

I'm using beta 2 and looking at Jazz Web SCM, I can get a URL for a selected resource but if a new revision is created, the URL points to a specific version.

I see in the URL that only difference is in the stateId param, omitting it didn't work.

I got this URL by selecting the file in the Web UI and then selecting "Raw Content".

Thanks in advance

Steve,

I am not aware of any. If you find that this feature does not
exist. please create an enhancement for it since it is a great idea.

What did you have in mind as the "latest" version? Since there will in
general be many streams of development for a give versionable, the
latest version by creation/modification-date is probably not very
interesting/useful.

Actually, let me guess ... you'd like a URL for the "current" version in
a given stream/workspace? (I agree that would be useful/desireable).

Cheers,
Geoff

You can bookmark the SCM web UI page for the current revision of a file, from which you can then get the content via the "Raw Content" link (changed in M5 to "Download").

There's currently no URL for the current content of a file.
It would make allow what you tried: take the download link and remove the stateId param.
I've opened up a feature request for this:
