New Standard Window
The Standard Window is a new window of SmartGit that focuses on keeping things simple, but still powerful.
Git is very powerful and offers plenty of commands.
SmartGit's Log and Working Tree windows both offer access to this full command set.
This is what our power users appreciate about SmartGit.
However, in combination with the many possibly repository states, this makes it hard to understand which operation will be the most appropriate in which situation.
In the Standard Window, we clearly distinguish between Local state (working tree) and History (Log) and adjust the GUI, according to the current repository state.
Furthermore, we limit the Git features to those which are most appropriate for this state.
Thus, the options for the user are more limited and this makes Git easier to learn.
