Show server name in main window
My databases have the same name on the production server, the dev server and my local machine.
Sadly Source Control shows me only the database name in the upper right conor of its main window. And because there is neither a status bar nor the server name in the tab name, I'm often unsure which database exactly it compares at the moment.
PS: I know, it is the one with the one with the light-gray-on-white-background in the object explorer, if I scoll up to the database level, but the scrolling is annoying and I have to look twice to see the light gray on white...
This should be available in our next frequent channel update (on/after August 19).

To enable this option in our next frequent release (on/after August 19), you will need to:
- close SSMS
- locate the file RedGate_SQLSourceControl_CommonUI_UIOptions.xml in your user profile, under AppData\Local\Red Gate\SQL Source Control 4
- add a tag somewhere inside the existing UIOptions tags as follows:
- save the file
- start SSMS.
