EGit/New and Noteworthy/5.10
The Apache MINA sshd client that is used by default now supports the ProxyJump directive in the SSH configuration file ~/.ssh/config. This is useful to access git repositories behind a bastion server or jump host. The configuration must be done in the ~/.ssh/config SSH configuration file; there is no UI for this.
EGit 5.10 includes some less noticeable improvements in the UI, plus a number of bug fixes. The complete list of new features and bug fixes is available in the release notes.
The following 4 developers worked on this release:
Chenhui Xu, Matthias Sohn, Michael Keppler, Thomas Wolf
