SmartGit can be used free of charge for non-commercial purposes (e.g. OpenSource developers or students). For commercial use or if support is needed, you can purchase a commercial license. The commercial license includes 1 year of free updates and either 90 days or 1 year of e-mail support.

New Russian time-zones

If you are living in Russia and are affected by incorrectly displayed times in, e.g., SmartGit, here comes the solution.

The reason for the incorrect time-zone display is that the Java version shipped with SmartGit does not know about such new time-zone changes (see the chart for time-zone changes and Java versions).

To work-around, please edit smartgit.vmoptions, add following line (and tweak if necessary)

-Duser.timezone=Etc/GMT-3

and restart SmartGit.
