What is Git?

Git is a distributed SCM/VCS, which means every developer has a full copy of all history of every revision of the code, making queries against the history very fast and versatile. The EGit project is implementing Eclipse tooling on top of a Java implementation of Git.

What is JGit?

JGit is a EDL/BSD licensed, lightweight, pure Java library implementing the Git version control file access routines, network protocols, and core version control algorithms.

See the embrynonic JGitTutorial.

What is EGit?

EGit is an EPL licensed Eclipse Team provider for Git, built on top of JGit.

Where can I find older releases of EGit?

It's recommended to use the latest released version of EGit, find it's p2 repository here http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates.

In case you need an older version, try an older repository:

Release Version p2 repository URL http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates-1.0
0.12.1 (Incubation) http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates-0.12
0.11.3 (Incubation) http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates-0.11
0.10.1 (Incubation) http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates-0.10
0.9.3 (Incubation) http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates-0.9
0.8.4 (Incubation) http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates-0.8

The project follows a pattern of http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates-<release> for its sites.

Retention Policy

All release p2 repositories will be kept forever.
