RepoZ v5.4 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-08-15 // 7 months ago
  • ๐Ÿฑ Empowering the right-clickers ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป

    I was lucky and got some contributions for this version, big thanks to Glenn F. Henriksen for helping out.

    โœ๏ธ He added support for Visual Solution solutions (#116), meaning RepoZ will automatically find *.sln files and add them to the context menu of a repository. By the way, he surely did not fix some typos in RepoZ ...

    ๐Ÿ Speaking of the context menu, the Mac version now finally has the same feature set as RepoZ on Windows.

    With this version I added two additional functions you can find in the screenshot above:

    • Open repositories directly in Visual Studio Code (#108)
    • ๐Ÿ’ป Browse remote repositories (#98) which fires up a browser and navigates to the remote address, like here on GitHub, for example.

    (pretty proud of having Scott Hanselman himself helping out with the naming)

    ๐Ÿ Simon Dobie extended my horizon by pointing out that not everyone has the Windows taskbar docked to the bottom (#110) ๐Ÿ˜… RepoZ looked weird if the taskbar was docked to the top or to the left - with this version, all docking scenarios are supported.

    ๐Ÿ’ป In addition, I'm pretty happy with the way I could improve the grr cd ... command. By using the clipboard, I'm not forced to type each char in the target process command line anymore.

    One more thing.

    Last but surely not least, I'm very proud to mention issue #114. An issue created by noone else than Patrik Svensson, the creator of cakebuild.netโœด, who also offered to help out with this.

    ๐Ÿฑ This is a highly requested feature enabling developers to customize their context menu actions. Developers keep being developers ๐Ÿ˜‡. We did not begin to work on that issue, yet. I encourage everyone to jump in and help us shaping this feature.

    โœด Cake Build is a cross-platform build automation system which allows you to write your builds in C#. I use it in every single project of mine. You need to try it, it's incredibly good.


    As always, I hope you enjoy using RepoZ.
    ๐Ÿฑ Have fun โœ‹

Previous changes from v5.3

  • ๐Ÿ Welcome Windows Terminal ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป

    The awesome Windows Terminal was supported with grr and grrui since it appeared in the Microsoft Store. With this release, Windows Terminal made it to the RepoZ GUI as well:

    ๐Ÿ As shown in the screenshot, Windows Terminal will be the first console app to be listed if it is installed.

    ๐Ÿ Even more, if RepoZ finds that Windows Terminal is installed, it will replace PowerShell as default action (when hitting CTRL+Return or Command+Return). If Windows Terminal is not present, a PowerShell console will be used as before.

    โž• Additionally, some users reported a rare issue when they opened a repository from RepoZ in PowerShell. This is fixed now as well.
