GitHub for Windows now makes it even easier to see everything local to your machine, whether it’s uncommitted changes or commits you haven’t synced yet.
One of the things you’ll notice when creating commits is the new, compact list of changed files in your working directory.
GitHub for Windows shows the number of files that a commit changed and lets you drill down to see what changed in a given file.
The updated branch selector now groups your recently used branches so that you can jump straight back in to what you were doing before that pesky hotfix distracted you.
We’ve given branch creation a dedicated place in the toolbar. As a bonus, you can pick which branch to base the new one off.
Finally, you can collapse the repository list to reclaim some screen space.
If you have GitHub for Windows installed it will automatically update to the latest version. If you don’t have it installed, download GitHub for Windows from windows.github.com.
