Has the app got progressively worse for anyone else?

This morning I sat at my desk, turned my monitors on and was welcomed by an error message I've been plagued with ever since the last update:

`Askpass.exe - Application Error. The application was unable to start correctly...`

I knew there would be multiple errors I'd have to dismiss, so I counted.


I'm considering jumping ship. I've persevered with Sourcetree for years, but it's got to the point now where I'm losing time and I just can't see it ever being fixed, which is a real pity as the UI, in my opinion, is far superior to all the competitors' solutions.

I completely dropped back to console only. SourceTree is slow, buggy, wasting precious screen space, unwieldy in how the UI works, needs forever to startup or do just anything.


IMHO there are two options right now.

1) Open source the software and let the community fix this mess.

2) Let it die. Finally.
