SourceTree Release Notes for Current Version

Suggestion: Make an easy-to-access hyperlink to the release notes for the current version of SoureTree (at this time

The release archives does a great job at providing access to the release notes for prior releases.

For exmple, the download archives provides a link to the following URL that contians the release notes for

By modifying the URL for the release notes, I was able to find the page with the release notes.  However, on no page of the website was I able to find a hyperlink that took me to that smae page.


1. Add the current release to the download archives.  Then the release notes could be accessed on the same page as release notes for prior versions.

2. Add a release notes hyperlink to the download page for the current version.

  • When new update is available there is a little Flag at the upper right corner (Win)
  • If you click it you can update and there is a link to release notes
  • Clicking this link goes only to the landing-page of SourceTree
  • ('Help>Release Notes' works)

Yes the release notes are available from the following places at the moment:

  • In the app from the Help/Release Notes menu item
  • During prompts to update there is a link to the updates release notes
    This link does take me to the release notes rather than the parent site.
  • From the download archives

Currently there isn't a link alongside from the main download link.


We can look into that,

I have version for Windows.  I does not show any hyperlink to the release notes for the latest version in the prompt to update.

This link currently takes me to

Yep, it's the same on my machine also. It happened on the version 2.5.5 which notified me about an update to the version 2.6.9.


Thanks for the information. I can't reproduce it at the moment, but can you just clarfy where the release notes link is you are seeing this behaviour from?

Is it:

  • In the Flag notification?
  • In the Tools/Options/Updates tab?


It's in the update notification. And it does not take you to release notes.



Thanks for clarifying. This sounds a bit odd but does it work if you click it twice? We have seen some intermittently odd behaviour with that link but as yet its not been reproducible every time.

Are you asking if it works if I double click? Or if it works when I click the second time?

Second time it doesn't work.

I didn't try to double click because it looks like a link and the mouse pointer changes to a hand IIRC. I don't double click on links.

I was wondering about clicking a second time.

I have seen reports of this, but not been able to reproduce it internally yet, so it seems to be intermittent.

We will continue to investigate
