EGit/New and Noteworthy/3.7

EGit

Features

  • Enable using staging view for submodule repositories
  • Double click on conflicting files in staging view opens the merge tool instead of compare view
  • Consider URLs with and without ".git" when importing project sets
  • Handle external files in CommitUI.getSelectedFiles()

GitHub Connector

  • No new features

Usability Improvements

  • "Updating index" should indicate that view is "busy"
  • "Refresh" operation should indicate that view is "busy"
  • Case insensitive order of remotes in push branch dialog
  • Transparent icons in push branch dialog
  • Make EGit Eclipse welcome page more consistent with other team providers
  • Automatically configure gerrit for projects cloned from a Gerrit server

Performance Improvements

  • Scalability: don't run incremental update if there are too many changes
  • Scalability: label decorator should cache computed repository branch state. This heavily speeds up resource decoration for large repositories
  • Fixed many UI freezes reported via Mars automated error reporting (see issue list).

  • Update build to Tycho 0.22
  • Use target platform DSL and generator to maintain target platforms
