Some of the main features of the new version include being able to see any project you’re working on in the sidebar from which you can clone them or start a new one, as well as collaboration tools. You can also see, switch and create branches in the repository view and visualize your history in a graph that outlines changes and commits and merge or deploy your code.
Some people seem to be missing the apps already though…
