Window title is not updated when changing branch #170

When I change a branch or checkout on the window title is not updated. When I restart the git-cola the windows title is set to the current branch. When the change is done outside of git-cola I understand the issue, but if the change is done from inside the gui I don't.

what version are you using? Works for me(TM) ;-)

You can do:

git cola --version

and it'll show you the version.

I'm running under ubuntu 12.04

cola version 1.8.0

And before issuing this issue I upgraded the default install of 1.4.5 to 1.8.0 which is in ppa:winski/git-cola

Thanks Cedric. If you could open a bug against the Ubuntu package then it may help them update their version sooner. If you clone the latest git-cola from github here you will see that the problem is fixed. It's pretty easy to run git-cola without installing it. Simply clone the repo somewhere and run /path/to/repo/bin/git-cola.

I hope that helps. Thanks for the report.


Thanks for your help it works great now
