git-cola v1.8.1

Usability, bells and whistles

  • git dag got a big visual upgrade.

  • Ctrl+G now launches the “Grep” tool.

  • Ctrl+D launches difftool and Ctrl+E launches your editor when in the diff panel.

  • git-cola can now be told to use an alternative language. For example, if the native language is German and we want git-cola to use English then we can create a ~/.config/git-cola/language file with “en” as its contents:

    $ echo en >~/.config/git-cola/language

  • A new git cola merge sub-command was added for merging branches.

  • Less blocking in the main UI
