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?
What is EGit?
What is New and Noteworthy?
You can find the latest changes for EGit and JGit below:
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|
The project follows a pattern of http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates-<release> for its sites.
All release p2 repositories will be kept forever.
What versions of Eclipse does EGit target?
In general EGit promises to support at least the latest two Eclipse releases (as of this writing in Oct 2011 this is 3.6.2 "Helios SR2" and 3.7.1 "Indigo SR1").
If possible we will not prevent usage in older releases but if we want to take advantage of new functionality only available in one of the latest two Eclipse releases but not in older releases we will update dependencies which will in fact discontinue support for older releases.
THIS TABLE IS CURRENTLY A DRAFT
|EGit||released for||Supported Version of Eclipse|
|1.2-SNAPSHOT||3.7.1 (Indigo SR1)||still Eclipse 3.5.2+ (Galileo) BUT if we find good reasons why we want to drop Galileo support in order to take advantage of new functionality only available in Helios we reserve the right to change this to 3.6.2+ (Helios)|
|184.108.40.206109151100-r||3.7.1 (Indigo SR1)||Eclipse 3.5.2+ (Galileo)|
|220.127.116.11106090707-r||3.7.0 (Indigo)||Eclipse 3.5.2+ (Galileo)|
Since 0.7.1 EGit requires Eclipse 3.5.2 (Galileo) or newer. See bug 308027 for more details on providing support for Eclipse 3.4.
Compatible version of Git: To Be Announced.
