EGit and JGit 0.9 Released

The EGit and JGit teams are proud to announce the availability of EGit and JGit 0.9 today. You can download via our p2 repository, Helios SR1 when it comes out or via the Eclipse Marketplace.

In terms of what’s new, on the EGit side, we added preliminary support for a synchronize view:

We also added some usability improvements to the history and repositories views. We also added a configuration editor to help manage your .gitconfig:

There were many other new things so I encourage to check out our new and noteworthy pages. On the JGit side we added a preliminary user guide, support for .gitignore, rename detection and a resolve merge strategy. On top of that, we refactored JGit to support non-filesystem based persistence which will enable JGit to run on the cloud (I’ll follow up in another post why this is important). If you’re interested in more information, please check out our release review slides as part of the Eclipse development process:

We’ll be releasing EGit and JGit 0.10 later this year to stay true to our relatively brief release schedule. The plan is to release 1.0 on time for the Indigo simultaneous release. Other than that, please enjoy the release and file any issues you come across. There are many ways to contribute, please check out our contributor guide for more information.

On a side note, if you want to show your support for the EGit and JGit teams, please consider on the Eclipse Marketplace.
