Awesome tool - the best Git GUI I've found, and I think I tried most of them today!

It would be nice (for me) if the "Diff Viewer"

(*) displayed line numbers on the left (like gedit for example)

(*) had a context menu entry that did "Launch Editor", since that's where my mouse normally is when I want to do such a thing

(*) Had up/down arrows for next-hunk/previous hunk

(*) had a tool-tip for the little "detach window" icon - I did not know what it was for initially

Thanks

Would also be nice the CTRL-E shortcut to open the editor worked when in the diff text panel.

I also want the Ctrl-E shortcut to work in the diff panel. These are all very nice suggestions. The actions for launching the editor are low-hanging fruits and easier to do. I'll roll as many of these as possible into the next release.

Agreed, awesome tool! One additional feature request regarding diffs: It would be great if it would recognize renamed files and diff them automatically (rather than showing them separately as added / deleted). Thank you!

  • Highlight the actual changes in the lines (as github.com does it).

and I can agree with everyone here: awesome project, thank you very much!
