Missing Git feature

The following has been written somewhere else but is worth repeating here:

This could be obtained by showing working tree modifications in the Log like a Stash.

This feature would add value to the Log Windows from which I work a lot when rebasing/cherry-picking/merging features

For SmartGit 18.2 Preview, you will be able to see the Working Tree and the Index modifications in the Log (i.e. the same information as in the main window).

What exactly are the use cases for seeing the differences between your working tree/index and a non-head commit?

Narrowed this topic to compare Index against arbitrary commit. Comparing the working tree (including local modifications) will require significant more work and will be significantly slower. If this is still what you are looking for, vote for: https://smartgit.userecho.com/topics/822


Implemented in version 18.2.


how can I compare the index with a previous file commit?
