[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hello,

Version 1.0 of tig is now available. This release brings many smaller
tweaks and improvements as well as a number of fixes and compatibility
changes to work with the newer versions of git. See the release notes
below for a detailed list of changes.

Note that the master repository has been moved to:

	git://github.com/jonas/tig.git.

So if you were tracking the old master repository, please update your
.git/config or run:

	$ git remote set-url origin git://github.com/jonas/tig.git

What is tig?
------------
Tig is an ncurses-based text-mode interface for git. It functions mainly
as a git repository browser, but can also assist in staging changes for
commit at chunk level and act as a pager for output from various git
commands.

Release notes
-------------
The master repository is git://github.com/jonas/tig.git, and the old
master repository (http://jonas.nitro.dk/tig/tig.git) will be retired.

Improvements:

 - Use git-log(1)s default commit ordering. The old behavior can be
   restored by adding `set commit-order = topo` to ~/.tigrc.
 - Support staging of single lines. Bound to '1' default. (GH #21)
 - Use +<lineno> to open the initial view at an arbitrary line. (GH #20)
 - Add show-notes ~/.tigrc option. Notes are displayed by default.
 - Support jumping to specific SHAs in the main view.
 - Decorate replaced commits.
 - Display line numbers in main view.
 - Colorize binary diff stats. (GH #17)
 - Custom colorization of lines matching a string prefix (GH #16).
   Example configuration: color "Reported-by:" green default
 - Use git's color settings for the main, status and diff views.
   Put `set read-git-colors = no` in ~/.tigrc to disable.
 - Handle editor options with multiple arguments. (GH #12)
 - Show filename when running tig blame with copy detection. (GH #19)
 - Use 'source <path>' command to load additional files from ~/.tigrc
 - User-defined commands prefixed with '@' are run with no console
   output, e.g.

   	bind generic 3 !@rm sys$command

 - Make display of space changes togglable in the diff and stage view.
   Bound to 'W' by default.
 - Use per-file encoding specified in gitattributes(5) for blobs and
   unstaged files.
 - Obsolete commit-encoding option and pass --encoding=UTF-8 to revision
   commands.
 - Main view: show uncommitted changes as staged/unstaged commits.
   Can be disabled by putting `set show-changes = no` in ~/.tigrc.
 - Add %(prompt) external command variable, which will prompt for the
   argument value.
 - Log information about git commands when the TIG_TRACE environment
   variable is set. Example: `TIG_TRACE=/tmp/tig.log tig`
 - Branch view: Show the title of the last commit.
 - Increase the author auto-abbreviation threshold to 10. (GH #49)
 - For old commits show number of years in relative dates. (GH #50)

Bug fixes:

 - Fix navigation behavior when going from branch to main view. (GH #38)
 - Fix segfault when sorting the tree view by author name.
 - Fix diff stat navigation for unmodified files with stat changes.
 - Show branches/refs which names are a substring of the current branch.
 - Stage view: fix off-by-one error when jumping to a file in a diff
   with only one file.
 - Fix diff-header colorization. (GH #15)
