EGit/New and Noteworthy/2.3


  • "Fetch from Gerrit..." recognizes Gerrit fetch command copied to clipboard (
  • Linked resources are now handled correctly ( They are typically ignored unless they point to a resource within the same repository as the containing project. In that case they are decorated according to their git status, and one can operate on them along with regular resources.
  • Added git clean action for repositories
  • Repositories View: added "Show In" support for resources and tags
  • Repositories View: Add "History" to Show In menu for all perspectives
  • History View: filtered files are now highlighted in file diff viewer
  • Commit Dialog: Changed table to filtered tree in order to enable quick filtering of file list
  • New preference (on by default): Automatically ignore derived resources by adding them to .gitignore
  • Improved support for logical models in "Compare With" operation
  • Perform synchronization for logical models in Commit and History View
  • Support fast-forward mode configuration in EGit's merge
    • Global config: merge.ff with values true, false or only
    • For specific branches: branch.<name>.mergeoptions with values --ff, --no-ff or --ff-only
  • Merge Tool can now also be used for conflicts of applying stashed changes
  • Font and colors of headlines in diff tab of commit viewer can now be customized via preferences
  • Added checkbox for nested project search to "Import Projects" page

API changes

  • RepositoryFinder has now a more concise API for handling linked resources when searching candidate repositories for a project. The default search behavior has changed: linked resources are now ignored during the search instead of being traversed. Any code that depends on the old default behavior should now use the new find method that also takes a boolean in order to control the traversing of linked resources.

Performance Improvements

  • Only refresh projects with changed resources
  • Synchronize View: Fixed performance problem with GitModelCache#getChildren
  • Synchronize View: Only refresh on repository change if affected
