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):
- Deleting untracked files from the Staging view can now be done using the delete key (bug 389137).
- Amend now preserves the original authorship date and time (bug 362391).
- When comparing a file with the current version (HEAD), its side now always shows the author and ID of the commit which last affected the file, not from HEAD (bug 359071).
- Git Tree Compare view now has an Expand all button (bug 376241).
