SourceTree Beta 1 is here! Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve announced a beta program and given you a look behind the curtains. The wait is over. Today, those of you who’ve signed up to be a trusted tester will get access to SourceTree Beta 1. In our first beta we’ve addressed:

        That’s confusing; considering the feature request has been open for 3 years on your answers board, with thousands of votes and continued regular activity. You’re also ignoring at least 20% of developers per both Stack Overflow and Jet Brains surveys, for a reason that Atlassian still refuses to answer. Some justification would be appropriate at this point.

    There’s no Linux version, it’s awful.

    Apparently everyone at SourceTree is a Mac user because the latest Windows version looks like crap and is completely broken, and a Linux version is nowhere to be found. Really frustrated because SourceTree has been my favorite Windows Git GUI for the last 2 years. As much as I hate looking for alternatives, I’m considering switching to GitKraken, at least until SourceTree makes it back to a usable state. 🙁

      Thanks for writing in. What’s completely broken on the Windows version for you?

        Hi Rahul. I modified a text file and attempted to add those changes to the active repo in order to commit them. I would click “Include” checkbox, a loading bar would pop up for a quarter of a second, disappear, then the checkbox would uncheck itself. No error, no indication of what I did wrong or what failed.

          Ah okay. Thank you. Are you a member of the beta program?

            I am not. I don’t have time to deal with beta issues as I’m working on big production systems and need reliable source management software. I’ve reverted to the latest available sub-version of SourceTree 7.0 and am evaluating other options. So far, SourceTree 7.0 seems to be the most stable product available on the market. I’m very disappointed that a beta product was released as an automatic update to a stable product without making that fact obvious to the end-user and without offering a proper downgrade path. Extremely unprofessional, but I honestly do hope SourceTree returns to its former glory soon.

            I’d like to clarify a a couple things. SourceTree 1.8 was a rocky release. We resolved a majority of the issues in several releases since then. After the rocky release we launched a new Beta program. Bugs like the ones you’re experiencing will be fixed and be released in SourceTree Beta prior to being made generally available. The latest version of SourceTree Beta is 1.9.2-beta-1.  I encourage you to sign up and try it. It will run in parallel with your copy of 1.7.
