    Woohoo! Open. Update. Quit. Relaunch. Crash. Relaunch. Crash... :(

      Yeah, really buggy for me too. Until they fix things — you can grab the previous version here

      (And then stop it from auto-updating by marking GitHub.app as read-only in the Finder info window)

      There's also a fix (as detailed by GitHub's support) that worked for me, but it's quite a hassle

        I redownloaded it and replaced Github.app, and now it opens without crashing (they may have updated it since then). But overall, it's still just as buggy and slow as the last version sadly.

        Clicking on History and viewing diffs is completely unusable at this point.

        I really want to use the GitHub app because its workflow makes the most sense to me, but I'll have to resort to something else for now.

    Might revisit this. I ditched the last version in favor of SourceTree: http://sourcetreeapp.com/

    Terminal. Or you're doing it wrong.

    Nice update but the UI is still very clunky (esp. Changes view) and inconsistent.

    Gitbox is by far still the best for Mac (at least for me).

    I've really been enjoying the updates to the Mac app these past few months, this being the most radical of changes I've noticed in a while.

    There are two features that they've removed a few versions back that I really miss:

    1. You can't collapse a commit when viewing the history. This is particularly frustrating when a commit has a lot of files.
    2. There's no way to get the exact date/time of a commit. I reference this quite a bit. It'd be nice to toggle it somehow, even if it was on the tooltip.

    You know what's even faster and simpler than a faster, simpler GitHub for Mac?

    Terminal.

    Am I moving my file to trash when all I want is reset a file? I'm confused. :( !Github for Mac - Disregard Change

    It's very buggy and merging is very "interesting". Not the best interaction. But perhaps this new revisited version will get designers using Github and Git more.

    Nice update. For those commenting on alternatives, I've been using Tower for a long while now and really like it.

    Thanks for sharing this!!! I like this update!

    I would love if you guys joined our conversation here on how you (designers) use Github with engineers.

    Thanks!

      What's it like being a designer for Target?

        It's a great experience specially for designers. We hang out in a facility called Target Creative where we get to meet exceptional designers form all industries (fashion designer, illustrators, print designers, etc) and from all over the world. Oh, and the photography studio is also here. There's a lot good influence/inspiration for designers here. I'd say I am really enjoying my time here.

    Looks like a nice redesign.

    Making it more OS X-like makes it immediately easier to understand. I think they launched the original app in the era when apps like Twitter and Sparrow used a trendy "dark icon sidebar". I'm really glad to see that go, as the new version looks crisper, and more professional.

    p.s. A more descriptive title would be nice. :/
