|Differt kinds of changesets? [message #40789]

I have question about the change set feature of the synchronize view in
Eclipse. I used to be able to click on a button to display changesets, but
for new synchronization actions, this functionality seems to have moved to a
submenu. The problem is, that I like the "old method" much more. I can't
find out how it gets toggled.
On http://i44.tinypic.com/s289y1.jpg you find two screenshots. The upper is
for the situation that I want, the lower is for the other situation. The
strange thing is that they both occur in the same Eclipse installation and
workspace: the "SVN (GoTravelhome)" synchronization action was created a
while ago, while the "SVN (Travelhome.nl)" action was created just now. I
can switch to the GoTravelhome view to get the upper view at this moment, I
am unable to create new views with that button. New views will automatically
have the lower view.
Can anyone shed a light on the difference between the toolbars?
Thanks in advance,

thanks for replying. There were some thing that made me like the old
situation more than the new situation. I will try to make a list of
them, perhaps it might lead to improvements. I recall that I liked the
way in which the file tree was displayed more in the old situation than
in the new situation.
But what my most important question is, is how it is possible that on
the same Eclipse installation and on the same workspace both versions of
this mechanism are available.
I only use PHP projects, which don't have special models for this
perspective. I rather use the old behaviour because of that.
