- Version 220.127.116.11 | Release Date: 2013-12-11 | Download
We’re happy to announce the release of SourceTree 1.8 for Mac. This release includes the much anticipated Subtree support and important Mavericks updates to improve stability.
Submodules were a feature of Git that many people had trouble working with and so subtrees were introduced as a way to solve many of the problems submodules introduced. We’re happy to announce that you can do all of this right from within SourceTree with a little zest added to make subtrees even easier to manage.
SourceTree stores subtree metadata so you can simply pull commits from your remote into your subtree without having to provide the same information over and over. Take a look at Atlassian’s blog “Alternatives To Git Submodule: Git Subtree” to find out more information about how to use Subtree with Git.

SourceTree 1.5.1 - Minor Release
Retina display upgrade - SourceTree now includes higher resolution icons and other tweaks to improve the appearance on MacBook Pros with Retina displays.
Display both the author date and commit date in commit details for Git if different
Added a Preferences option in Git to choose between author date and commit date in log table.
Repository window titles now instantly update when bookmarks are renamed.
When unstaging a file deletion in Git, don't automatically restore the file, leave it in the 'Missing' state so that it's the exact inverse of staging a Missing file as expected. The 'Reset' option is still available to undo the deletion and restore the file at the same time.
Make sure base path & strip options are correctly used in the Apply Patch sheet when manually entered and not tabbed out of
Fix the error message when opening an invalid working copy so that it does not imply that local Subversion repositories are supported.
Search %include files referenced in user .hgrc for extensions to ensure they are correctly recognised
In clone sheet, make sure error details button is hidden when clearing the clone source field after an error
Ensure that Bitbucket hg repo URLs don't get reported as Subversion in the event that Mercurial fails for some reason
Fix bug in launching custom actions whose script name is less than 3 characters

- Version 1.4.0 | Release Date: 2012-05-04 | Download
What's New in Version 1.4.0
• Bookmarks window overhaul!
◦ New improved visual style; more compact and easier on the eyes
◦ Live searching
◦ Sorting by name / type at any level
◦ New menus let you get to lots of functions without opening the full repo window, including Custom Actions you've defined
• Support for Atlassian Stash in the hosted projects view
• New setup wizard leads new users through their initial configuration, setting up Bitbucket and GitHub accounts, searching for local repositories etc.
• Mercurial Bookmarks are now fully supported (akin to local branches in Git). Previously these were displayed in the log but you could not manipulate them. Mercurial Bookmarks are now displayed in the sidebar and you can define them inside SourceTree.
• The Log View uncommitted line mode has been significantly enhanced, meaning all the features available in the File Status view are now also avaialable when selecting the uncommitted line in the Log View (previously you could only perform a subset of the actions).
• Commit message drafting - you can now draft commit messages well before you actually commit by clicking the icon at the bottom-left of the repository window or pressing Cmd-Shift-D.
• Custom URL protocol support - SourceTree will now respond to URLs of the form "sourcetree://cloneRepo/CLONE_URL" so websites can expose clickable links to clone in SourceTree. Also SourceTree will optionally handle github-mac:// URLs.
• Archive support exports a copy of your source code to a compressed archive, minus the repository metadata.
• Miscellaneous improvements:
◦ Improved support for handling multiple heads per branch in Mercurial
◦ Repository-level custom actions are now available on file/log context menus too and not just on the main menu bar
◦ Support for ignoring multiple individual files/folders at once rather than only via a pattern
◦ Commit text views now remember and share changes to their spell checking / correction settings
◦ Add the option not to display the 'Add Bookmarks' window when opening unbookmarked repositories
◦ Prune the log view more in Git when 'Current Branch' is selected when 'Show Remote Branches' is still enabled
◦ Dragging plain (non-repository) folders into SourceTree now defaults to creating a new repository in that folder
- Version 1.3.3 | Release Date: 2012-03-31 | Download
What's New in Version 1.3.3
• Prevent 'git stash show' diff view being broken by user options like diff.external and colours
• Allow any file to be brought in as a patch file, since the Lion open dialog doesn't allow file type filters to be overridden easily
• Suppress refreshes while applying patch files to avoid thrashing on large patches.
• Optimised processing of command output, particularly large outputs like large stashes / diffs
• Optimisation of memory consumption when dealing with edge cases like viewing very large stashes
• Fix SourceTree reporting SSL errors for self-signed certs in Mercurial when command line just displayed warnings
• Change confirmation message on Git delete remote branch to make it clearer that the change affects the remote
• Git push dialog now respects manually configured push settings, for example those used by Gerrit, while still not needing to check remote. Wildcard matching is also supported.
• Prevent the rare case of the repository refresh causing the sidebar selection to override the log view selection, jumping the view elsewhere.
• Improved handling of inconsistently formatted responses from some hosting APIs.
• Sync 'Select All' checkbox with manual selection changes in Git push dialog
• Don't fail when unshelving changes in hg if the same shelf had been unshelved previously without deleting and then reverted
• Stop hgattic overriding the commit behaviour when you apply a shelved change but don't delete it, causing it to try in vain to open Vim
- Version 1.3.2 | Release Date: 2012-02-29 | Download
What's New in Version 1.3.2
• Git pull & push sheets no longer query for remote branches unless prompted to do so, or you use a custom remote path. This speeds up the dialogs considerably; you can click the 'Refresh' button to see any branches you haven't fetched yet on the pull sheet.
• You can now stop a branch from tracking any remote branch from the sidebar, rather than just being able to set it to another branch.
• Unchecking the 'Track?' option in the git push dialog now untracks the branch; previously this only stopped the tracking relationship being set up. The 'Track?' checkbox is now mixed-state, where 'on' means set the tracking relationship, '-' means no change, and 'off' disables tracking on that branch.
• Allow confirmation dialog on branch switch to be disabled in preferences when working copy is clean
• Add extra keyboard shortcuts for log/blame selected
• Diff colours are now configurable in Preferences for accessibility.
• Add an explicit manual refresh button to hosted projects view (View > Refresh / Cmd-R also works)
• Fix gravatar display for emails with +/- in them
• Disallow email addresses as user name for Bitbucket/GitHub, require real user name to avoid invalid clone URLs
• Fix JIRA links consuming superstring references to same-named Crucible project
• Display uninitialised submodules in git. Allow uninitialised git submodules to be automatically initialised when you double-click on their sidebar entry
• When submodules require login and are on a different host, make sure any request for user details is clear about which one is being asked for.
• Automatically synchronise git submodules on pull/checkout, to pick up new submodules and changes in tracked commit without user intervention
• Add '--recursive' option to git submodules update in case you like submodules in your submodules
• Fix items in the sidebar sometimes being cut off so the annotations were not visible.
• Fix problem with using '#' characters in regex commit replacements
• When using 'Discard' or 'Reset' specifically on a working copy change in git, *only* undo the changes in the working copy (git checkout), keep the index. This was potentially confusing.
• Fix conflict between hgsubversion & subrepositories with hg 2.0.1+ which could cause cloning with subrepos to fail.
• Remove defaulting of destination path in clone dialog on App Store version
• Extra safety checking to make sure keycode isn't ever nil on custom actions.
• Always use git config setting core.quotepath to deal with filenames which include utf8. Previously this had to be set in the gitconfig by the user
• Add an author map file option to cloning from Subversion.
• Fix crash when using 'Current Branch' filter in hg on a newly created uncommitted branch. Also fix content display in this case since hg won't filter on that branch until it's committed.
• Fix incorrect git pull default branch selection when config manually changed to branch.master.rebase=true
• Suppress error messages from git log before the first commit on an empty repo
• Allow 'unstage' to work on added files in git before the first commit has been made in a blank repo
- Version 1.3.1 | Release Date: 2012-02-11 | Download
What's New in Version 1.3.1
• Default the commit text to the previous commit if the 'Amend previous commit' checkbox is enabled

• Fix display of uncommitted line in git when the last commit is a merge
• Support display of git octopus merges in log view
• Add 'Stop Tracking' menu option for files
• Ensure that when the Main Menu 'Update To...' / 'Checkout...' item is used, the update sheet selects the current selection if you were on the log view.
• Cope with Git repositories which use a .git file (not folder) with a 'gitdir' clause to redirect the location of the actual git repo content (Git 1.7.8 creates submodules like this)
• Embedded Git updated to 22.214.171.124
• Fix pushing a single branch in Mercurial via the advanced section of the push sheet
• Fix a failure to add a git submodule when manual authentication was required on the clone source
• Fix mercurial subrepo commit tracking changes not showing up in the file status view
• When retrieving the SHA of the current commit in Mercurial, force it to return the full version, not the short version (permanent)
• Fix display of blank keyboard shortcuts in Custom Actions
• Handle unexpected git/hg failures better by alerting the user more explicitly instead of just logging
• Fix hgattic getting stuck if you applied a shelf without deleting, then deleted manually
• Fix linking multiple JIRA / Crucible issues if they were adjacent in the text. Note: requires re-saving the JIRA link to update the regex
• Update help index for better searching
