EGit Features

Add files to .gitignore in Staging view

For an untracked file, the Staging view now has a Ignore action in the context menu. This will add the file to .gitignore.

Staging view honors label decoration preferences

For example, when the label decorations are configured to not show any text decorations, but instead use an icon for the "dirty" state (bug 390297):
