GitHub Desktop 1.5 release

The release of GitHub Desktop 1.5 includes three important improvements:

  • You can now easily initiate a merge from the branch dropdown, and it’s much more intuitive which branch you’re merging and the direction of the merge.
  • If you encounter a merge conflict, GitHub Desktop now guides you through the process of resolving the conflicts and completing the merge successfully.
  • You can now clone, create, or add repositories to GitHub Desktop right from the repository dropdown.
