SourceTree's built-in gitflow features are terrific. One change I'd like to see is to optionally use a different version tag prefix for hotfixes than for releases. Currently, if you specify a version tag prefix when initializing gitflow, it's used both for the tag when you merge a release branch into master and for when you merge a hotfix into master. I'd rather use separate prefixes for that.
Unfortunately, SourceTree simply wraps nvie's gitflow plugin, which does not allow this type of configuration and has had no active development in nearly two years, so I would not expect any change here.
There is a feature request to switch SourceTree to a popular, active fork of nvie's gitflow (https://github.com/petervanderdoes/gitflow). I don't know if this fork allows for the separate prefixes you're requesting, but if you requested there, it would stand a chance of being added.
