SourceTree for Windows adds Git Flow support

By on May 1, 2013


Our Git Flow support in SourceTree for Mac turned out to be really popular, and it’s been one of the top feature requests from the community since we released SourceTree for Windows; so we’re very happy to announce that you can now use Git Flow in Windows as of version 0.9.2 beta!

If you’d like some more detail on what Git Flow is about and how SourceTree helps you use it, the blog post Smart branching with SourceTree and Git-flow is a good place to start. We wrote it for the Mac version, but the Windows version operates in exactly the same way and the interface looks the same too barring a few small details.


We hope you enjoy using this feature! Since the public release of SourceTree for Windows a little over a month ago we’ve been working hard to expand and improve it, and there will be plenty more updates in the weeks to come.

    I tried updating to get this new feature but SourceTree is telling me that my current version ( is the latest version so there isn’t an update required, even though the changelog in the same window shows the enhancements and fixes for 0.9.2

      I’ve updated a few machines here from to 0.9.2 and didn’t see this issue – 2 ways that I’ve seen it happen are proxy caching on some intermediate server, or occasionally if you’ve previously used the ‘Repair’ option on an installation it can ignore updates. Please try again but if it persists uninstalling and re-installing from should fix it.

      FWIW we’ve had enough random problems with ClickOnce updates that we intend to move away from it as soon as we can.

    I upgraded today, and am psyched to use it. Thanks for your hard work!

    When should we expect Hg support on Windows? I know they are very similar but I find Git very confusing and Mercurial very intuitive. Given the choice I would use Mercurial even as a Git client.

      As soon as we can, it’s a high-priority item. Put it this way, we want to get it in for 1.0, and version numbers are running out 🙂

    The front page ( still has a note that there is no support for git flow on Windows. You might want to remove that.

    Looks like Git flow doesn’t support the new git 2.x. Whenever I click “new feature” I get an error message that claims this is not a git repository though I can commit, TortoiseGit does not complain and git fsck neither.

    That was a nice feature. Too bad, it was removed in the last release…
