SourceTree - Why does the latest major update killed the ability to see file mode changes ?

I've been able to see something like "filemode 100755 -> filemode 100644" in diff view in ST 1.8.x (OSX), but since the 1.9 update, i'm not able to see filemode changes, and when it's the only thing changing on a file, i can see a very frustrating empty diff view.... Can we have this (simple) feature back in SourceTree 1.9 ?

Hey Samir,

I'm pretty sure that's a bug that'll be fixed in the next minor release which we're hoping will go out next week. We've had a lot of feedback so a lot of issues users are experiencing/reporting have already been fixed pending release.

If you'd like to report verifiable, reproducible issues though then you can report them over at
