What’s New

Version 3.6.0:

  • Check Out Pull Requests: This update makes it very easy and convenient to check out a Pull Request as a local branch.
  • Quick Actions Navigation: Opening and closing the "more actions" interface for a Quick Action item is now more fluent and intelligent.
  • GPG Email Settings: Tower now displays a warning message in cases where the committer email and GPG key email do not match.
  • Commit Area UI: When the "commit compose area" is expanded (showing both the "Subject" and the "Description" textfields), it is now possible to click-select a changed file from the list before the UI changes.
  • Commit Changeset Drag and Drop: Dragging an item from a commit's changeset to failed in some situations.
  • Diff Tool Shortcut: The keyboard shortcut to open the diff tool didn't work reliably in the Pull Requests view.
  • Toolbar Buttons Glitch: On some installations, toolbar buttons were misplaced by 1 pixel between groups.
  • Empty View for Pull Requests: When deselecting a Pull Request item, the appropriate "empty view" is now displayed.
  • Crash in Pull Requests: When Tower tried to update a Pull Request item with an invalid/empty username, the app could crash.
  • File Selection: In certain scenarios, when a file in the Working Copy view was selected, Tower could hang when that file was included in a commit.
  • Loading Commit Diffs: Fixed a potential crash when loading commits diffs.
  • Mouse Wheel in Services List: When using a mouse wheel to scroll, some users reported problems in the list of repositories in the "Services" view.
  • Keyboard Shortcuts: Some keyboard shortcuts and menu actions failed to be available in some scenarios.
  • Drag and Drop in History: Dragging a commit in the history table views sometimes did not work as smoothly as expected.
  • Support for "log.showSignature": Users that had the Git config setting "log.showSignature" set to true experienced problems when loading commits in Tower. This has been fixed.
