New release of SourceTree 1.4

By on May 1, 2012

SourceTree just took another step forward today with SourceTree 1.4. In this release, we have:

What’s new?

Bookmarks window: reloaded

The bookmarks window has been completely redesigned to improve its visual style and usability.

Search your bookmarks in real time, quickly navigating to the projects you want to find regardless of where they are in the tree. Easily re-sort the contents by name or repository type, and get access to common functions without having to open the full repository window first. You can even invoke Custom Actions directly from the list.

Bitbucket support

Enjoy instant access to your source code by cloning with SourceTree from any repository by simply clicking the ‘SourceTree’ clone option in Bitbucket . Your clone details will automatically be configured in SourceTree for you to instantly download source.

Setup Wizard

To welcome new users to SourceTree and get them up to speed, we now include a setup wizard which packages the steps most people want to perform the first time they open SourceTree. In one short swoop, SourceTree can:

Mercurial bookmarks support

You’ve asked for more Mercurial support, and we have listened. Not to be confused with the bookmarks window, Mercurial has its own concept of bookmarks within a given repository. They behave somewhat like local branches in Git, and they can be used to more easily keep tabs on multiple local streams of development.

Commit message drafts

Now you can start drafting your next commit message long before you’re actually ready to commit. Just click the commit drafting button at the lower-left side of the repository window — or press Cmd-Shift-D, to pop up the drafting pane — and start typing.

Draft commonly used commits and create templates that you can use later to save time. This feature also allows you to refine your commit messages until they are ready for your team to see.

Plenty more!

There are plenty of other small improvements and tweaks in 1.4, and we’ll go into more details in follow-up posts in the coming weeks. In the mean time, we hope you enjoy the new release!

    This release has been submitted to the Mac App Store but Apple are taking longer than usual to review it. The direct version will always update faster than the Mac App Store version, and it also has a few extra feature tweaks that improve usability but which Apple don’t allow, such as defaulting clone locations and installing command line tools. We provide the Mac App Store version for convenience but overall recommend the direct version for the best user experience.

    Just wanted to say thanks for SourceTree. It’s easily one of the best git clients out there, free or not. Works great, lots of power, and helps me visualize my tree.
