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 19.1 preview 5?

Performance, Performance, Performance

In this release we concentrate on performance improvements, especially for the log.

Dark theme on Windows 10.

Improved dark theme

On Windows 10 the dark theme now also supports dark title bar, menu bar, scrollbars. If the Windows 10's default app mode is configured to be dark, the context menus are also dark.

Improved Commits view

If your repository is in a special state (rebasing, merging, cherry-picking, bisecting, ...), a banner indicates it clearly and offers context-dependent commands.

For rebases now see the done and pending commits at one glance.

Rebasing state clearly noticable.
The combined commit details and message view.

Combined Details/Commit Message view

The Details and Commit Message view of the Log window have been unified now to save screen space. Simple commits can be done right from this view.

In the Commit Message view of the Working Tree window also allows committing directly now without using the (still available, more feature rich) dialog.


For Linux a couple of GUI related bugs could be fixed and the dark theme could be fine-tuned (table headers, selection colors, carets).

Experimental support for deleting to trash (without the need of additional tools) has been added to Linux.
