Usability, bells and whistles¶
We now ship a full-featured interactive git rebase editor. The rebase todo file is edited using the git xbase script which is provided at $prefix/share/git-cola/bin/git-xbase. This script can be used standalone by setting the $GIT_SEQUENCE_EDITOR before running git rebase –interactive.
Fixup commit messages can now be loaded from the commit message editor.
Tool widgets can be locked in place by using the “Tools/Lock Layout” menu action.
You can now push to several remotes simultaneously by selecting multiple remotes in the “Push” dialog.
The grep tool learned to search using three different modes: basic regular expressions (default), extended regular expressions, and fixed strings.
- git cola now depends on the argparse Python module. This module is part of the stdlib in Python 2.7 and must be installed separately when using Python 2.6 and below.
- Support unicode in the output from fetch, push, and pull.
