This preview version is a "rolling" release so it will require direct internet access to download the latest patches.

You can install and use the preview version in parallel to the release version, in this case:

  • For Windows, make sure to use the Portable bundle. The installer won't work for such a setup.
  • The preview version (except of the portable Windows bundle) will initially copy the settings from the release version, but writes them to its own settings directory. This means that settings of both versions will diverge.

What's new in SmartGit 20.1 preview 8?

Performance, Performance, Performance

In this release we concentrate on further performance improvements, and on reducing the memory usage for large repositories.

Unified Index-Working-Tree node in the Log Graph.

Log Graph with unified Working Tree/Index Node

Until recently, there existed separate Working Tree and Index nodes in the Graph. Now they are unified to one node to be more compact and less distracting, especially if a commit is checked out that is not the top most one.

Files view: separate Working Tree and Index

A lot of new users are used to having separate lists for Working Tree and Index changes. Now you have the option to see all changes in one list or have them separated into 2 lists.

If no or all files are staged, a second empty list would be useless, so we don't show it in this case.

Optionally the files can be shown in separate lists for Working Tree and Index changes.
For the dark theme refs are now also shown dark.

Dark Theme improved

For the dark theme refs are now also shown darker.

Remove Worktree

It is now possible to remove worktrees directly without workarounds.

New remove worktree command.
