Announcing GitHub for Unity 1.0

The GitHub for Unity 1.0 editor extension is now available for download from the Unity Asset Store and Version 1.0 includes:

  • File locking improvements: File locking management is now a top-level view within the GitHub window, giving you the ability to lock or unlock multiple files.
  • Diffing support: Visualize changes to files with the diffing program of your choice (set in the “Unity Preferences” area) directly from the “Changes” view in the GitHub window
  • Reduced package size: Previously, the package included full portable installations of Git and Git LFS. These are now downloaded when needed, reducing the package size to 1.6MB and allowing us to distribute critical Git and Git LFS updates and patches to you faster and in a more flexible way
  • Notification of updates: Get a notification within Unity whenever a new version is available. You can choose to download or skip the current update
  • Email sign-in: Sign in to your GitHub account with your GitHub username or the email address associated with your account
  • Improved Git and Git LFS support for Mac
  • A Git action bar for essential operations

You can now view and edit key information in issues and pull requests from within your project board.

Clicking on the title of an issue or pull request card opens a side panel on the right hand side of the screen. This side panel view allows you to make quick edits to select areas including, but not limited to, labels, reviewers, assignees, and description.

Take a look at the documentation for more information.
