Sherlock Holmes and Watson, Han Solo and Chewbacca, Batman and Robin. Every hero has a trusty sidekick to complement his/her talents and form a kick-ass team. With the recent release of Sourcetree 1.4, we can now say that it’s no different at Atlassian with Sourcetree and Stash, Atlassian’s Git repo management tool for the enterprise.

Holy Sourcetree, Batman!

In a secret laboratory hidden deep within Sydney, Stash was born to solve the problems that plagued Enterprise teams trying to manage Git repositories behind the firewall. Meanwhile, on the other side of the globe, Sourcetree was hard at work developing new features to help Stash fight the good fight. In Sourcetree 1.4 the two products combine forces to provide an easy-to-use experience that will certainly rescue your development problems and ease your DVCS adoption fears.

Git is a powerful version control system, but it can be very complex for new users. One of the biggest problems that development teams using Git face is that as the team grows, the time it takes to get new people onboard increases. Stash and Sourcetree solve this problem by providing two GUIs that are completely compatible with your Git repositories and make them easy to manage. A new team member can simply click Stash’s Clone in Sourcetree button and have the source downloaded straight into Sourcetree. Jump into Sourcetree and start working with the repository without ever fiddling in the command line.
