What’s new in version 8.5.0

Updated on May 18 2022

New:
  • Git is what gives a dev their power...It binds the galaxy together.
  • GitKraken WorkSpaces now support Azure DevOps repositories.
  • Any Workspace created for Azure DevOps will automatically include repos for a selected Azure Project.
  • Workspaces can currently support up to 100 repositories for an Azure Project.
  • Visual interactive rebase can now be initiated from the GitKraken CLI, which you can access from a Terminal Tab or a Repo Tab by clicking the Terminal icon in the top toolbar.
  • Users can type either gk rebase -i or gk rebase --interactive along with two refs to open the interactive rebase view. If only one ref is passed it will perform the rebase of the branch currently checked out onto the specified ref.
Improvements:
  • An elegant Git client for a more civilized age.
Git LFS Improvements:
  • Users will experience a reduced delay in updating the graph and commit detail panel when selecting commits in LFS enabled repos.
  • Note: Significant work towards reducing checkout times for LFS repos is underway and we plan to include these improvements in the GitKraken Client v8.6.0 release, scheduled for June.
  • When creating a new Team, members can now be added as part of the creation process.
  • Team members are now sorted by username in the Teams section, found in the left panel of GitKraken Client.
Improvements to GitKraken Workspaces:
  • Workspaces can now be shared as Team Workspaces, allowing users to share the Workspace with specific teams within their Organization.
  • In the Workspaces Repository view, clicking on the name of a repository will open it in a Repo Tab.
  • Users can view repository information by clicking on the Open Repository Details option, found on the right side of the Repositories view.
  • Organization admins and owners will see a new "Show All Workspaces" checkbox, allowing a simplified way to see all available Workspaces.
  • Users can now leverage GitHub’s search syntax when using the Workspaces Pull Requests view search.
Users will find more options for filtering in the Workspaces Pull Requests view. The new options include:
  • "Opened by Me", to show pull requests that were opened by the user. This filter is available for GitHub, GitHub Enterprise, GitLab, and GitLab Self-Managed repositories.
  • "At Risk", to show any pull requests that are not drafts and have been open for longer than 7 days. This filter is currently only available for GitHub, GitHub Enterprise, GitLab, and GitLab Self-Managed repositories.
  • "By repository", to limit the view to a single repo within the Workspace. This filter is currently available for Azure DevOps, GitHub, GitHub Enterprise, Gitlab, and Gitlab Self-Managed repositories.
  • For Windows users, GitKraken Client will now respect the core.longpaths setting in .gitconfig. Previously, GitKraken Client had its own longpaths setting independent of the user’s .gitconfig setting.
  • On Windows, core.longpaths now only applies to the files in the working directory, not in the .git directory, to maintain compatibility with Git for Windows.
GitKraken CLI autocomplete will now be able to suggest more than one argument in these commands:
  • git add
  • npm install
  • npm remove
  • yarn add
  • yarn remove
  • Notifications with a Call to Action will now be marked as read when the CTA is clicked.
Users encountering merge conflicts can now right-click on the conflicts shown in the Commit Panel to reveal new options for easier and faster conflict resolution. The new options available are:
  • "Take current", which applies the changes from the branch currently checked out to resolve the conflict.
  • "Take incoming", which applies the changes from the incoming branch to resolve the conflict.
Bug Fixes:
  • Bugs…You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
  • GitKraken Client will now open as expected for users on OpenSSL 3 Linux distributions such as Ubuntu 22.04 and Fedora 36.
  • Users will see increased performance when opening a commit diff for very large images. Large images will now display as a binary file Instead of producing an error.
  • For large files, such as images and other media, we recommend using Git LFS.
  • Dotted graph lines will no longer take precedence when overlapping with solid lines in graph views.
  • Users can now type in the GitKraken Terminal as expected on a wider range of OS versions.
  • When un-hiding a remote, users can continue hiding or un-hiding remotes without waiting for the triggered automatic fetch to resolve.
  • Azure DevOps integrations and all self hosted integrations will now work properly on our new Teams license tier.
  • Users with hundreds or thousands of Azure DevOps Projects will see improved performance when integrating Azure DevOps.
  • Users can now use quotation marks when naming Workspaces.
  • All Organization and Team actions will remain available after using the login screen.
  • The scrollbar in the GitKraken Terminal will now remain clickable in all situations.
  • When a user pushes many files up at once to GitHub, they will no longer experience an OAuth infinite loop.
  • Opening repositories via gitkraken --path when GitKraken is already open will now work as expected.

I have been using this app for a long time and it is one of the best on the market. I love the concept of software and project management on a global scale.

Git kraken has a lot of promise, but there developers are no good and refuse to provide support or even recognize issues. High ram usage, cpu usage, and a slow interface is what greets you on any real repo. Its overpriced for the kind of support given, and can sit for hours doing what source tree or terminal commands can complete in seconds. I would never trust them to even have the capability to improve this product.

2/6/20 This failed to connect to Github out of the box with a 1003 error. I emailed the company and got an autoreply. I never signed up on their site. Proceeded to get a bunch of marketing emails about all sorts of deals. Finally, support contacted me to tell me it's an "authorization error" but by then, I'd tossed Gitkraken into the trash with extreme prejudice. I complained to the tech support person about all the marketing email and that their marketing person was being way to aggressive. I had to explain that I'd never logged in or signed up for ANYTHING but sending them a support email. And that, in my opinion, did not give them permission to SPAM me to death. The support person "passed this feedback onto their team" but I still continue to get SPAM from them, which I'll continue to report to SENDGRID and their content provider. 3/10 tried 6.5.4 and it logged me into Github w/o a problem, so they fixed that. Apparently this app uses a subscription model ($30/year) just to access private repos. No thanks. Tossed it in the trash again.

This is a fantastic product in 2019. I don't know anything about the previous versions. I use 6.2.x. I watch my buddies use github's junky client and or telnet direct, what a nightmare they live in. GitKraken is a masterpiece of version control software. Branches are visual. You can SEE what just happen to a recent update with a nice interface. If you depend on Github for your source, this is THE best client.

Another electron based crapware. Avoid like the plague. Tower and SourceTree are much better native options.

This app used to work somewhat ok. They release automatic updates for it, changing the interface and other "features", and now it is a piece of garbage that sits here saying, "Opening Repo" and won't do anything else. Tried reinstalling the app.

I surely would prefer any of my apps to be Electron/JS and Java free as well, but when alternatives are not so plentiful, I can only complain. If I understand correctly, Tower is great alternative, but there is no free use option. Now I'm downgrading GitKraken to 4 starts, not because of Electron, but because there is no GitLab integration, and SSH option is not good enough for me any more. And, so I've now switched to Java *sigh* based app SmartGit.

I use GitKraken to run (update, modify) a site on GitLab Pages. This git client works well with GitLab and I did not need to perform any sort of complicated integration with the service. UI and workflow are very pleasing and straightforward. The app is free. 3 PROS and cannot think of any CONS.
