What do all the icons mean?

I'm trying to figure out the status of a branch of a project I haven't worked on for a while - being fairly new to Git and SourceTree - I have no idea if the branch has been merged back to master or not.

Other than the main toolbar buttons, which are self explanatory, the rest of the SourceTree UI is a mystery - not at all obvious to me.

It would be great if it had some docs - at least a simple single page detailing what the various UI components and icons do/mean.  

Thanks

Thanks Seth - but that answers only a small percentage of the UI. What do the branching icons mean? eg the icon immediately to the left of the word "release" in the image in the link you posted? Thanks Tim

The branch icon just means that the name next to it is a branch. If it has a check, that's the branch that is checked out.
