No version of Sourcetree for Linux, despite very clear interest!

I've really come to appreciate Sourcetree on OSX and Windows and would love to be able to use this great tool in Ubuntu Linux.

I've read a lot of posts saying "we're aware you want a Linux version", but little else beyond that. All the while, the requests for a Linux version continue to pile up.

When can we hope to see an Ubuntu PPA for Sourcetree?

Hi Alexander,

We have no plans to develop a Linux version at the moment and a Linux version is not in development, that much I can say. We definitely go by community interest and statistics. Windows came about first as it was more popular based on data that the teams at Atlassian gathered.

But, and a big but, as Steve has rightly pointed out, there were never any plans for a Windows version either. So the official statement is that there's no Linux version in development, nor planned, but that was said about Windows, too.

There was a Windows question on Answers that had so much Windows interest it was one of the driving factors to reconsidering a Windows port. There's a Linux one, too.

Hope that helps
