Git Integration enhancements in RAD Studio XE8

VersionInsight in RAD Studio XE8 has been extended further, with deeper Git integration and also support for Mercurial (in addition to Git and Subversion). In this article I want to quickly highlight the new Git features, as that’s what I mostly use, but you can see more about the Mercurial support here.

As an aside, if you’re not familiar with VersionInsight, I did some videos quite awhile ago that showed how to use it against Subversion, and then another video which shows it working against Git.

Migrating SVN to Git with history

I’ve been using Git more and more lately, mostly because it allows me to do lots of checkins locally, even when disconnected, and then push those centrally when I get back online.

Uwe continues to do great work on the community version of VersionInsight

Uwe Schuster just keeps on adding new features to VersionInsight.

If you’re using Subversion he’s posted a long list of changes/fixes/new features here. He’s well underway on adding Mercurial and Git support as well and LiveBlame is looking very cool also.

If you haven’t updated the version of VersionInsight that comes with XE to the Community version yet, he’s even got you covered with instructions. Nice one Uwe!
