Since the public release of SourceTree for Windows a little over a month ago, we’ve been working hard to expand and improve our Git and Mercurial clients for Windows and Mac.
Windows client adds Git Flow support
Our Git Flow support in SourceTree for Mac turned out to be really popular, and it’s been one of the top feature requests from the community since we released SourceTree for Windows; so we’re very happy to announce Git Flow support for our Windows client!
SourceTree for Mac version 1.6 adds interactive rebase
Having to bring up a terminal when you want to do an interactive rebase is painful. If you aren’t familiar with rebasing or the command-line, the pain level ratchets up to excruciating. We asked ourselves: “How can we make this simpler and keep everything in SourceTree?”. Our solution is a visual, drag-and-drop interactive rebase:
The UI gives you visual feedback on each step of this previously advanced function. Want to re-order your commits? Want two commits to be one commit? No problem, just drag and drop the rows around.
There is so much more…
- Desktop notifications for incoming changesets
- New icons to match our Windows version of SourceTree
- “Log Selected…” on multiple files at once
- The push sheet in Mercurial shows which branch you’re pushing to
- New preference menu shows the pull count for the currently checked out branch
- Git repositories now remember the previously selected options in the pull/merge sheets
- Support for the latest Araxis diff/merge tools
- The “commit merged changes immediately” setting is now remembered between pulls
- Support for longer passwords for Bitbucket, Stash, GitHub and Kiln
