Optimal overview.

See your repository state at one glance: your working tree, Git's Index, available branches, which commits need to be pushed.

What's New:

Fixed Bugs

  • Commit, Discard: invoking Compare for renamed file does not show source file, but only empty file
  • Git-Flow:
    • Integrate did not honor custom base (if configured)
    • Start Hotfix fails if an unrelated version-tag is present
    • Start Release may suggest invalid (already existing) release name
  • Tools: tools with only ${dirSelect} did not show up in menu
  • Startup: under certain conditions always asks for confirmation to send bug traces

Linux:

  • smartgit.sh suggested to add jre= line if no JRE was found, but ignored this line
  • https authentication failed if SmartGit path contained spaces

Installation Instructions for Windows

  1. if you have an older SmartGit version installed, exit SmartGit (use Project|Exit; there should be no more SmartGit tray icon),
  2. unpack the downloaded file,
  3. launch the installer and follow the instructions

Installation Instructions for Mac

  1. if you have an older SmartGit version installed, quit SmartGit,
  2. unpack the downloaded file (e.g. by double clicking it) and move the application directory structure to a directory of your choice (typically /Applications)
  3. if you prefer, drag'n'drop the application to the dock to create an icon

Installation Instructions for Linux

  1. unpack the downloaded file into a directory of your choice,
  2. ensure, that the correct Java Runtime Environment is installed on your system,
  3. start the application by using the launcher script from the bin directory

If the application fails to start, e.g. because you have an incompatible JRE version on your system, it might be necessary to set the SMARTGITJAVAHOME environment variable to the root path of the Java Runtime Environment 1.6 from SUN. To create an icon on your desktop, you'll find suitable images in different sizes in the bin directory.
