It is getting close to 2 years since SRCTREEWIN-2093 was filed. SourceTree has only been on a downward slope since then.

However, today's release 1.8.1 finally breaks the camel's back by making it worse in every way possible. One wonders how such a large corp can fail so badly with engineering for so long.

Here are some tweets and comments from the issue that give you a sense of how bad the issues are:

Its gotten even slower..

Now needs an Atlassian account login, which doesnt work..

GitFlow icon was removed...

Cant even do a commit..

Like the above tweeter, I have switched to [GitKraken]( which is super fast and made by a bunch of people who seem to care.
