Dear Squeakers using Git,

I have just released a new version of Squot, maybe more commonly known as
the "Git support and browser" from the end of the first startup wizard, or
as the "Git Browser" from the Tools menu.

One highlight is that the saving of new commits in projects with larger
FileTree/Cypress packages is now much faster because it does not
rewrite all the files anymore, but rather only writes those that actually
require changes.

While Tonel repositories do not benefit from that particular improvement
yet (but they have much less files anyway), it is now possible to preserve
method timestamps in Tonel repositories. Note that if you make
contributions to Pharo projects from Squeak, you should not turn this
feature on there unless you want to annoy somebody.

Also the tools now use the new layout hints that Marcel has implemented
along with the scaling features. So the tools now look well with a scale
factor other than 100%.

Please find the full release notes here:

If you already have the Git Browser installed in a previous version, you
can use the self-update action from its window menu.

If you encounter any problems, please let me know by creating an issue on
GitHub: https://github.com/hpi-swa/Squot/issues

Kind regards,
