Release Notes

New features, improvements, and fixes. Here are the recent updates for Tower.

Release overview of Tower forWindowsmacOS
Version 3 is the biggest update for Tower in 4 years. We implemented countless new features like Pull Requests, Interactive Rebase, Quick Actions, Image Diffing, and Reflog. But we also delivered a huge amount of improvements and enhancements for existing features like File History, Blame, Commit Details, and Search. Last but not least, a beautiful "Dark Mode" appearance also made its way into Tower.
Performance

If you're often working with big repositories (i.e. thousands of remote branches, tags, etc.), then this update might be for you: opening such a repository, displaying the working copy, loading changesets, and many other actions are now up to 5x faster than before!

Dark Mode

Along with Apple's introduction of a "Dark Mode" in macOS 10.14, we implemented a dark theme in Tower, too.

Image Diffing

Tower now supports image diffs for a variety of formats (PNG, JPG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, JPEG2000, HEIC), in both the Working Copy and various history / changeset views. In future updates, we will further extend and improve this feature.

Pull Requests

Create, merge, close, comment and inspect Pull Requests right from within Tower! Integrated into our clear, responsive, and powerful desktop interface, Pull Requests become so much more useful.

Interactive Rebase

Interactive Rebase is an incredibly powerful tool - but also quite awkward to use on the command line. But now, in Tower, it has become as easy as drag and drop!

Quick Actions

The brand new Quick Actions dialog gives you superpowers: Give it a branch name and it will offer a checkout. Give it a file name and it will present the file's history. Give it a commit hash and it will show it in the commit history. Fast as lightning, easy as pie.

Navigation

We've added so many new levels of detail in the new Tower. And at the same time, navigating Tower is now as simple as browsing the web: with the new "back" and "forth" buttons and the improved "Navigation Bar".

Commit Details

We've reworked countless areas in the new Tower. Let's take the brand new "Commit Details" view as an example: with the changeset on the left and lots of space for the diff on the right, you can inspect and review a commit in a more focused manner.

Reflog

A little-known feature, but one with enormous power: Reflog can restore lost commits or branches, move back to a rolled back state, undo a cherry-pick or commit... and is now available in Tower!

File History & Blame

We have redesigned both the "File History" and "Blame" views from scratch. They have become much more useful and informative.

Search

Search functionality in the new Tower has become much more powerful. You can now search for files almost anywhere: in the Working Copy, in a historic file tree, or even inside the changeset of a commit!

Version 2 is the biggest update for Tower in 2 years. We implemented countless new features like Pull Requests, Interactive Rebase, Image Diffing, and Reflog. But we also delivered a huge amount of improvements and enhancements for existing features.
