Completely agree; first, the registration pop which loads the authentication web page never loaded; After re-launching it, it loaded but was too narrow to see anything; Finally got past that and now, every time I merge from another branch into my current branch, the entire UI becomes blocked by what appears to be a hidden/invisible popup. I can no longer click on the anything and the "quit" option on the file menu is blocked!! Not to mention the UI looks awful.
Yeah what was wrong with the previous icons? Now I have to take screenshots of these new icons for my user guide. Terrible decision on that one.
I'm okay with the font changes, removing redundant buttons, and decreasing white-space. Free-ing up screen realstate is a good thing.
But why so monochromatic. Hurts my eyes.
This is a productivity tool, it's not an app that just sits there and looks nice.
People who are using this app are constantly clicking and using it the whole time it's active. A media player for example someone clicks play and then does nothing for an hour while watching.
The media player is a candidate for a no-colour interface as the click rate might be 1-10 clicks per hour. This tool people click 100s to 1000s of times per hour which is why colour to find what you need to click is paramount.
Echoing what so many others have said - this latest update is crap. The things that are bugging me the most:
Really hoping I can figure out how to downgrade... this is ridiculous.
Well, I guess I have myself to blame. It is a FREE license so I guess I cannot expect too much. Learned the lesson, take extreme care when upgrading!!! "Log in to existing account" just show a blank display with a cancel button as only option. DON'T ATLASSIAN TEST? Luckily I have another Mac with the old, working, 2.1, so I could revert on all my Macs. Hope they fix it soon or should I look for another program?
I agree with you Benjamin. I will added willing to pay if that means a better support and development for source tree.
Tree view on windows, after 2 long years of asking to have it, is gone again, deprecated because considered slow... so every other software out there must be done with some sort of magic coding...
Also, trimming the sidebar text to a hardcoded length makes it totally unusable. No mouseover or click would show me the full name of my branches or stashes, leaving the end-user totally blind:

And this doesn't respond to resize or anything, so there's really no easy way to figure the list items out.
That's a shame!
This UI suck so much! is those people do test their app before releasing it ???
It's no more usable at all.
I'm used to select a commit and Press Cmd+R to reload content, it was keeping the selected commit after update done.
Now it always goes to the local latest commit.
Worse, adding a file to the index (staging) also reproduce the problem, making code review a nightmare...
I care less about the aesthetic changes. It was only a matter of time before SourceTree jumped on the flat UI bandwagon. My issue is staging is largely broken if you're trying to stage hunks and lines, which is really what I use SourceTree for. It used to excel at that.
This is on a Windows 7 Enterprise laptop I use at work. Haven't tried it at home on my Windows 10 box and frankly, not even going to bother. I'll be using the link above to rollback to 1.7.
Ditto. I upgraded this morning. First problem: no bookmarks. Next problem: UI didn't refresh after moving a file from Unstaged to Staged. Next problem: UI froze when switching from File Status tab to Log/History tab.
All this in the first 3-4 minutes! I'm running v22.214.171.124 on Windows 7 x64.
This is pretty shocking.
I have the same problem. I click on branch a, spinning pizza for 1 minute. Click on branch b, spin for 1 minute. Click on branch b again, spin for another minute.
Usability is very questionable.
I do like the new UI frankly, but the lag/spin is making this app almost unusable in day to day work.
