EGit Features

"Push to Gerrit..." action

Delete untracked files in Staging View and Repositories View

The Staging View now has a context menu action Delete which makes it possible to delete untracked files directly from the view. The Repositories View has the same action.

When all the selected files are workspace resources, it's possible to undo the delete using the Edit -> Undo menu.

Before, it was always necessary to locate the file in the Package Explorer or Navigator. In the case of non-workspace resources, it was necessary to leave Eclipse.

Commit using Ctrl+Enter (Cmd+Enter) in Staging View and Commit Dialog

After having entered the commit message, it's now possible to commit using the Ctrl+Enter (or Cmd+Enter on Mac OS X) shortcut instead of clicking on the toolbar icon.

Show warnings/errors on files in Staging View and Commit Dialog

When there is a problem on a file, it was previously only possible to see this in the Package Explorer or Navigator. Now the decorations are also shown when preparing a commit, in the Commit Dialog and in the Staging View:


Context menu in Git Tree Compare view

The Git Tree Compare view now has a context menu, with Open Working Tree Version and a Show In menu:


It now also acts as a selection provider, so that other views (e.g. History view) can track the selection of the Tree Compare view.

Improved conflict markers for rebase/cherry-pick conflicts

Instead of OURS/THEIRS, the conflict markers now show more useful information. For example, a conflicting cherry-pick:

<<<<<<< master
>>>>>>> bad1dea Message of the commit I'm cherry-picking

A conflict during rebase:

<<<<<<< Upstream, based on master
>>>>>>> b161dea Message of a commit I'm rebasing

Garbage Collector and Repository Storage Statistics

Branch Tracking Status Decoration for Tracking of Local Branches

EGit does now decorate local branches tracking another local branch with the number of commits the checked out local branch differs from the other local branch it's tracking.

Improved autocrlf Support

  • EGit now expands LF to CRLF in input for compare editors if autocrlf = true

One-click Commit and Push

  • The Commit Dialog now supports "commit" and "push to upstream" in one step

Synchronize View Enhancements

Now synchronization configuration is persisted between eclipse sessions. Users can also "pin" configured synchronization.

Other Improvements

  • Performance of decorations in Synchronize View was improved
  • MultiPullResultDialog supports multi-selection. The details button in MultiPullResultDialog can now also work with multi-selections.
  • Staging View prompts if there are unsaved files on commit
  • Merge does now support option --squash (see git-merge)
  • "Create Patch..." command was added to the context menu of the Synchronize View
  • "Show In > Git Repositories" in Repositories View supports multi-selection
