What's new in GitKraken

Version 7.0.0:
New:

Got issues? Keep them in Jira! Now you’ll have no issues tracking your issues because you can stay in the GitKraken Git GUI. New integrations for Jira Issue Boards and GitKraken Boards make it possible to resolve and manage issues directly from the GitKraken Git GUI.

GitKraken Git GUI now integrates with the following issue trackers:

  • Jira (Cloud & Self-Hosted)
  • GitKraken Boards

After setting up the integration, users will be able to do the following from the GitKraken Git GUI:

  • View and filter a list of project issues
  • View issue details
  • Create branches that are tied to an issue
  • Add comments*
  • Edit the status/column of an issue*
  • Edit the assignee of an issue*
  • Create new issues*
  • Features denotated with * are paid features for Jira integration and free for GitKraken Boards integration.
Users can now open repositories inside of the following text editors via the Fuzzy Finder, menu, or keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + E):
  • VS Code
  • Atom
  • Sublime
  • IntelliJ
  • Local repositories without a remote setup now include an option to create a remote and push local changes.
Improvements:
  • You’ve still got issues, but at least your favorite Git GUI is still improving...
  • When creating a GitHub pull request in the GitKraken Git GUI, users can now search for reviewers and assignees by name or username.
  • The text color in a commit description will change when the placeholder text has been replaced.
  • Users now have the ability to rename remotes.
  • ed25519 and ecdsa SSH key pairs are now supported.
  • For Windows users: the Open with GitKraken menu option will now open a new tab inside of the GitKraken Git GUI instead of a new window.
  • Pull request links can now be copied through the context menu.
Bug Fixes:
  • We take issue with bugs...
  • The From Repo drop-down menu will populate results when opening a pull request.
  • Users can successfully initialize a repository on a Bitbucket server from the GitKraken Git GUI.
  • For Windows users: the Open in File Manager menu option, keyboard shortcut, and Fuzzy Finder action now work as intended.
Snapcraft:
  • For Snap users: the snap for the GitKraken Git GUI has been moved to the classic confinement! Before updating to v7.0.0 of GitKraken, please install the snap with the --classic flag.

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.

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.

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.

Just another JS/HTML crap. Very slow and unstable.

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.
