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.

Surprisingly SmartGit is not that smart.It's just a copy cat of git gui with little added value. built on top of java, it is quite stable but really doesn't help much in my daily workflow: I still need my command line interface.

It is probably the best GIT client for Windows.

However on Mac there is a much better alternative (and full featured) called SourceTree.

Or there is Tower, which is even better than SourceTree in my opinion.

I'm very happy with SmartGit, just as I was for years with SmartSVN.
It has all the features one can want. It's not, like some other Git clients, a simple shell over a standard commandline interface, but adds its own smartness on top of it.

I also like the fact that I can configure viewer and comparison tools to be used for particular file types. E.g, for my REALbasic project, I can assign Arbed as the viewer, and for other text files I use BBEdit.

Just like with SmartSVN, it's always been 100% reliable and stable for me. And the developers are responsive and helpful, usually within the same day.

If I had to complain about something, it'd be the user interface sometimes not following proper Apple guidelines. Sometimes a modal window doesn't appear like one (it appears like a doc window), and similar little things. Nothing of a problem, just a sad little result of this app being in Java, and Apple's Java support lacking (i.e. shame on Apple, not on the SmartGit developers here!).

Certainly give this tool a good trial run. It works well, is well maintained, and you can't beat the free personal license.

Uh, little correction (I confused "private" and "personal"): It's free for non-commercial use.

Have been using it for quite some time and it's wonderful. I've tried GitX, Gity, Gitbox and an extended beta test of Tower (which was excellent, but bloody expensive) and SmartGit wins. The default layouts are sensible, the speed of working with it is excellent, and it's solid and stable.

Anyone who overlooks this because it's a non-cocoa client should give it another chance, you're only losing out yourself.

Well, I was wrong. The experimental branch of GitX has a lot of potential, but I've found that it's too buggy even just for casual use. I've switched to using SmartGit, and despite the fact that it's a non-native, java-based app, it's a very well written and well designed Git-Client.

I tried SmartGit and although I had no serious problems using it, it's still a java app and not a native client. I recommend using the experimental branch of GitX instead http://github.com/brotherbard/gitx/downloads. It works very well and it is made for mac.

SmartGit has been my client of choice since its beta has been released and I am really happy with it, I must say. It made my first steps with Git so much easier and is powerful.

Sure, one could hope for a native cocoa app as much featured as SmartGit is but don't be fooled by the fact it is a Java application. It works fine and even looks good.
