We released GitHub for Mac almost exactly 5 months ago. Today we’re excited to release its first big update.
So, what’s new?
The entire changes view has been redesigned. It’s now easier to review your changes and roughly 5 gazillion times faster.
We think commit messages are pretty important. But it’s hard to create meaningful messages if you have unrelated changes in the same file.
So we added per-line committing.
Select the lines you’d like to commit. Write an awesome commit message. Commit.
We’ve added Commit & Sync. It’s now just one step to share your changes.
A few other noteworthy changes:
The app will automagically update itself. If you want to make sure it’s grabbing the new version, go to the GitHub => About GitHub menu.
It took blood, sweat, and 951 commits to create 1.1. We think it’s a huge step forward.
As always, feel free to contact us if you need any help.
