SourceTree for Windows 1.5

Shouldn't this read SourceTree 1.5 for Windows?

Also would can this do everything that git can do in cygwin?

Placing the version number after "SourceTree" would have a slightly stronger implication that it is a matching release for a different OS (SourceTree 1.5 for Mac == SourceTree 1.5 for Windows).

But this is not the case. Instead, SourceTree for Mac 1.8 == SourceTree for Windows 1.5. Maybe if/when they decide to increment to version 2.x they'll get the version numbers in sync.

No, it can't do everything. No GUI can do everything a CLI can do if the GUI is simply a wrapper for the CLI (unless of course, it provides a way to let you type full commands into the GUI, which doesn't really count). However, I think you'll find that SourceTree supports all the common uses of all the major features of Git on the command line.

If you ever hit a use case that you can't perform in the GUI, it has a handy "Terminal" button to launch the CLI interface inside the current project.

Since those are two completely separate, unrelated questions, I responded with two answers. Keep in mind that on this site, you can choose multiple "correct" answers, whether those are mine or someone else's.
