v2.7.0 is released

New in this release - Simulink

  • Added support for Simscape.
  • Added support for R2022a.
  • Added support for Stateflow entry and exit ports (introduced in R2021b).

Fixed in this release - Simulink

  • Toggling the split direction while in the undocked state no longer causes an error.
  • Previously, a diff filter such as subviewS/* would fail to apply on an empty subviewS node - it falsely assumed there would be a subviewS/someProperty=foo. This is now fixed, which reduces noise in diff reports, especially related to embedded MATLAB scripts.

New in this release - general usage

  • Keyboard shortcuts for tab navigation.
    • Ctrl+W to close the current tab.
    • Ctrl+Shift+T to reopen a recently closed tab.
    • Ctrl+Tab / Ctrl+Shift+Tab to navigate through tabs (or Ctrl+PgUp/PgDown).
  • Instead of "Accept commits", you now get "Accept 4 commits" (as appropriate).

Fixed in this release - general usage

  • log4j has been entirely removed from DiffPlug.
  • Dragging and dropping changed files in the commit diff viewer is fixed.
  • When uploading a new branch to a remote, the --set-upstream tracking information wasn't being saved to disk. Now fixed.
  • On MacOS only, DiffPlug startup could hang on proxy configuration when no network connections were available. Now fixed.
  • Viewing and diffing folders which filenames containing [...] has been fixed.
Extend to 2.6.1
