Will Sublime Merge support git switch and git restore?


In version 2.23 of git, two new commands have been introduced to replace the old git checkout( git checkout is still available, but people new to git should start with these ones preferably). As you would expect, they basically each implement one of the two behaviors described previously, splitting git checkout in two.



Hi @bitsper2nd,

Thanks for the question!

Currently we have no plans to switch the default behavior of Sublime Merge to make use of the switch and restore commands. This is to ensure Sublime Merge remains compatible with different Git versions. This may change in the future if switch and restore become the standard.

For posterity: OP created this enhancement request:



As long as Sublime Merge does the right thing I don’t get why we should care if it runs git checkout or git switch/restore.
