stage several files on new SourceTree Mac version

I just updated my MAC SourceTree to the Version 1.9.0. This version made some design modifications and one of them was on how to state files to a commit.

Before, we could stage files by dragging them from the "unstaged" to the "staged" section. In the new version, the "stagged" section was removed and you stages the files by checking the checkbox on the each filename.

The problem with that approach is that if I want to stage several files at once (let's say, during an initial commit), I have to check each checkbox one by one....

Is that really the only way? Or is there a easier way to stage multiples files?

You can Cmd+click to highlight multiple files (maybe shift+click as well), then hit the space bar once to check (stage or unstage, depending on current status) all highlighted files.

Thanks for the blog link. It (together with the comments) summarizes everything.
