EGit and JGit 0.10 Released

The EGit and JGit teams are happy to announce the 0.10 release, just in time for the holidays!

You can grab the release from the Eclipse Marketplace or from our repository:

I’m happy to say we got a lot done for the 0.10 release. In JGit (new and noteworthy) we improved performance, improved the API and added HTTP basic and digest authentication which should help people behind firewalls. In EGit (new and noteworthy) we added a merge tool, UI for new JGit API (cherry-pick, notes, pull, rebase) and improves the Repositories view.

On the whole, it’s been a long journey since we brought EGit and JGit to earlier this year. Since our first release in early March, we’ve had over 1500 commits and added 5 new committers to the projects. The project has wide support from individual contributors and companies like Google, Red Hat, Tasktop and SAP. While we are still in beta and appreciate the patience of a variety of open source communities, we’re confident we can ship 1.0 in time for the Eclipse Indigo release in June 2011. Next up, we plan to ship 0.11 in late Feburary 2011 in time for the Helios SR1 release.

If you want to help us get to 0.11 and 1.0, please try out the tooling, file bugs and contribute code if you have the time.

    Thank you for the great release and your and all contributors work! 🙂
    Please have a look at one of your links: the EGit “new and noteworthy” link points to the JGit n&n page. Thanks!

  • Thanks Benjamin, I made the fix!

  • Daniel Stein

    Thanks for your effort.
    My company still uses SVN but the rapid progress of egit helps a lot to convince my colleagues to switch to git…

  • Thanks for the kudos Daniel. Both EGit and JGit teams have been working really hard to make sure the Git tooling is fantastic by the Eclipse Indigo release. While we have made a lot of progress, we aren’t there yet. Thanks to you and other ‘early adopters’ we’ll get the necessary feedback we need to make the tooling better.
