News from Git in Eclipse

Status:
Accepted

JGit and EGit 4.0 shipped with Mars and 4.1 will be available until EclipseCon. Curious what's in ?

More and more advanced Git features and options are implemented in JGit and enable EGit and other JGit based applications to catch up with the functionality advanced users know from native Git.

Working with symlinks, submodules and stashes has been improved and some git hooks are now supported. Developers using the git-flow workflow will be happy to find git-flow commands in EGit 4.0. Support for gitattributes and git filters is coming soon and we are working on a JGit based implementation of the Large File Storage extension proposed by GitHub [1] to support versioning of large binary files.

We'll show some of the new features and give an outlook.
