The Git Quick Diff provider also detects renames now (bug 335081).

  • Consider the ancestor when comparing with remote revisions (bug 400943).
  • Allow users to show server messages while pushing (bug 398387).
  • Share project: Allow "Create Repository" even when a parent directory already contains a repository (bug 407190).
  • Commit dialog: the file section can now be resized by hovering the mouse just above the file section title and dragging the sash up or down, making the message section increase/decrease accordingly (bug 343712).
  • Also show committer if different from author in result dialogs of fetch, pull and push (bug 363023).
  • History view: Adjust column widths and don't show e-mail addresses by default to improve space use
  • Improve error reporting for pull failures due to conflicts
  • When opening a resource which exists in more than one project (due to nested projects), open it in the most specific project (bug 404629).

GitHub Connector Features

  • Adapt github connector to use JGit/EGit 3.0
  • Switch UserPlan fields to long instead of int
    • This expected size can be common for large Enterprise installs.

  • Fix branch names shown in Configure Branch dialog (bug 407465).

  • File enhancement bugs on EGit Core to specify EGit APIs you need. Prepend [API] to the bug title to mark it as API relevant.
