GitHub Releases Desktop App Version 1.2

A brand-new release of the GitHub Desktop app just shipped yesterday that will help you more easily sync up your changes with coworkers and teammates. The headline release feature is that you can compare your branch to another branch in the repository. You can then merge that branch (i.e., master) into your current working branch. Next up, you can select multiple files and perform actions on them like discarding changes. You can select multiple files with Shift + Command/Ctrl and clicking on individual files. If you werent aware, GitHub desktop is an Electron-based application, which enables you to build cross-platform desktop applications with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. Eighteen different people contributed to the v1.2 release though GitHub pull requests: GitHub Desktop is open source. Thanks to our community, weve merged 26 contributions from 18 different contributors. Since launching 1.1 in February, weve fixed bugs, improved existing features, and extended GitHub Desktop. In fact, our multi-file select feature started as a pull request from our community . Wed love to have you join us and contribute to future versions of Desktop.
