“SourceTree beats everything else I’ve looked at for presenting the
information I want and then simply getting out of the way,” said Julian Adams
of Mad Atom Games, an independent video game developer. “We use SourceTree
because it stops revision control being a problem and lets us get on with
making games! For our Windows users, SourceTree makes sense of the Git
experience like nothing else.”

“With the explosive growth of Git amongst developer populations, enterprises
are increasingly in search of tools to smooth its learning curve for
employees,” said Stephen O'Grady, principal analyst with RedMonk. “And with
millions of businesses using Windows worldwide, SourceTree's new Windows
version will not lack for an addressable market.”

repositories, and fits seamlessly into a developer's workflow. It automates
complex command line operations and enables users to visualize change
setsacross multiple branches and forks. With SourceTree, newbies and more
advanced DVCS veterans alike can:
