git-cola v1.7.1

Usability, bells and whistles


  • Boolean git config settings with no value are now supported (these are not created by git these days but exist in legacy repositories).
  • Unicode branches and tags are supported in the “branch diff” tool.
  • Guard against low-memory conditions and more interrupted system calls.


  • Added desktop launchers for git-cola.desktop and git-dag.desktop. This replaces the old cola.desktop, so some adjustments to RPM .spec and debian/ files will be needed.
  • Fixed the darwin app-tarball Makefile target to create relative paths.


  • The –style option was removed. git cola follows the system theme so there’s no need for this option these days.
