EGit/New and Noteworthy/5.8
The outline view of the diff viewer has now a toolbar:
There's a button to collapse all folders, and a button to toggle the presentation from a flat folder list to a hierarchical display.
When clicked, the content is shown using nested folders.
Additionally, the diff viewer now also has a "quick outline" that can be opened with the standard keybinding Ctrl/Cmd-O.
- Repositories View
- Tag filtering; describe pattern syntax (substring, wildcards allowed, ^ and $ anchors; #<number>)
- Can select a git bundle file to clone from.
- org.eclipse.egit.ui.RepositoriesViewClone command newly has a command parameter "repositoryUri". The value should be a string containing a clone URI. The command opens the clone wizard, if repositoryUri is set, it is used to pre-fill the dialog from the given clone URI. If the value cannot be parsed as a URI, it is silently ignored.
EGit 5.8 includes lots of 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.
