Announcement: https://github.com/blog/878-announcing-github-for-mac

Website: http://mac.github.com/

Doesn't do everything yet, eg bug reports, it does allow you to 
push/pull/view diffs/work with branches/view history/revert commits etc. 
It also does rebases if it detects it can do them without rewriting 
history - handy for avoiding lots of merge messages everywhere.

Wow, that looks awesome. GitHub without having to use some #*$^%!*$ &$^&*#$$&* %#&*# webapp. Hope a Windows version comes soon. Reminds me of Sherlock and Watson: Two of the main things that got me interested in trying Macs ten years ago. 'Course, I ended up not liking Macs, but I loved Sherlock and Watson and absolutely hated seeing them dissapear into obscurity instead of flourishing and getting ported to other platforms like they deserved.

I know that you probably don't have the time for that, but creating a Windows version yourself should be entirely possible, as the GitHub API is open (docs at http://developer.github.com/), and libgit2 works on Windows just as well. ;) David

Did github go down for anyone else? It seems to have gone down almost
instantly after I made a push in a new repo. :s

Also that GUI looks nice, I wonder how fast it is though. I don't
think I'd personally venture into building something like that for
Windows, mainly because I only use a minimal set of GIT/GitHub
features. But I do have plenty of free time, as you can see. :p

Seems kind of cool, but I'm quite satisfied with the command line and gitx. -- /Jacob Carlborg
