Eclipse EGit: Git Integration for Eclipse 6.7.0

Security Fixes


  • 581875 Add UI support for $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/git/config
  • 582225 Team->Share: consider git config option init.defaultBranch
  • EGitCredentialsProvider: support asking for a password only. JGit may ask for a password only, if a PKCS11 provider is used.

Usability Improvements

  • 582226 History view: dynamic label for "Push Commit...". Change the command handler to update its label to "Push Branch..." if there is a local branch pointing to the selected commit.

Performance Improvements

  • 578768 Improve performance of staging view by caching RepositoryState
