SmartGit overview

SmartGit is a graphical version-control client for Git, Mercurial, and Subversion. It is designed to wrap Git's and Mercurial's powerful commands into a slick and easy-to-use user interface and runs on Windows, OS X, and Linux.

What’s new in version 22.1.4

Fixed Bugs:
  • Background scan: fixed memory leak if Detect Local Changes is disabled
  • Changes view: Resolve may fail with "Input length = ..." error depending on the used encodings
  • Fetch More: internal error when trying to fetch non-branch, like Gerrit refs/changes/01/000002/3
  • Standard window:
    • Files: possible incorrect original path shown for renamed file
    • Filter: various regex-selectors, e.g. .* were non-functional
    • GitHub: possible internal error during refresh
    • Rebase may silently do nothing
  • Linux bundle: old .svg file was bundled
Other Noteworthy Changes:
  • Tools: the obsolete ff-merge.sh tool is removed automatically, even if upgraded from older SmartGit versions

Pricing is absurdly unrealistic - $100 for a java app that is a GUI to a command-line tool is simply not acceptable. Consider that apart from the much cheaper, and much more polished commercial alternatives - like Tower and Fork - if you're willing to put up with an non-native, unintuitive interface, there are also several open source and FREE alternatives, like SourceTree.

I want to express kudos to SmartGit devs who kindly acted on my GitLab related bug report, even though I have no entitlement for support with my free license, and fixed a problem it in this version.

Marc at syntevo went along with my submission with best client support practices, as it should be done, including followup emails.

This shows a high level of commitment and care about the product syntevo makes. Even a clause saying that free use of SmartGit for non-commercial comes without support, did not get in the way of improving the app.

Previously used GitKraken but switched to this, for now at least, as I needed GitLab personal access token support. CONs: uses Java and has a so-so UI PROs: I can use GitLab's personal access tokens, Yay! I'm overlooking the CONs and giving the app 5 stars. Because I can :-)

The MU download link downloads a small tat.gz file (4.4 kb), whereas the developer's site has a downloaded for a newer (vers. 4.5.2) and much larger (32.1 mb) dmg file. Also noticed that the version number for a number of applications I am looking at today here at MU appears to be significantly older versions than what are available at the developers' sites. Don't know if this is just happenstance or if there is something systematic going on at MU. This comment is primarily meant for MU, and feel free to purge it.

We recently switched to git and I am very glad to have SmartGit. V3 is more than "just a copy cat of git gui". It's easily the best gui for Windows, although there is competition on the Mac side. Yes it's written in Java but so what? It works well and is stable. Great for those of us still learning the git command line.
