Github has version 2.8 of his desktop clients presented. The focus is on comfort functions for the comparative presentation of code and more opportunities for developers who have very many local repositories.
Comparative representation at the push of a button
Thus, users can extend differences, ie the comparative presentation of two code block, to extend the art at the push of a button to detect a complete image around the past. A new context menu allows developers at this point also to expand the whole file right away. At the same time, users can access a new focus view, which hides less relevant whitespace changes in the diff and the view is free on the actually done in the code.
Github desktop 2.8 can hide changes in spaces and co in the comparative view.
Another focus is on the new release on the handling of local repositories. Whoever works in parallel with multiple copies of directories in parallel, can prove this art with an alias to make it easier to differentiate between different variants.
Github continues to expand the 2017 round-renewable desktop client with new features: the last release ordered a few weeks ago a drag-and-drop feature for selective shifting commits and various innovations in the area of security. Further to the updates and detail improvements under the hood can be found in the client’s release notes, which is available for macos and windows free of charge on github for download.
