Unit Testing



Tree view in the Diff panel


You can switch between the flat table and the tree view with the two toggle buttons in the toolbar.

Simpler clone wizard


You don't have to go through all three clone wizard's panels. If you fill the destination folder directly on the first panel and click on Finish, the action will work much like the git clone with a commandline client and it will use default values for remote and checkout branch.

Transparent work with Git submodules

Working with submodules should be much easier. You can now commit a submodule's state directly from the IDE, submodules will be automatically (if you accept it of course) initialized and updated after a clone. When pushing the parent repository the IDE will check if all submodule's changes will have been committed and warn you before reaching an inconsistent state in the remote repository.

Other improvements

  • ability to change branch tracking - in the Git Repository Browser you can select a local branch and call Setup Tracked Branch from the popup menu to set the branch tracking for this local branch
  • improved push to upstream work-flow - when a git push would result in a non fast-forward merge (the remote repository contains unmerged commits), you are warned and offered the option to pull the changes into the current local branch and eventually do the push again automatically.
