Leitmotif today announces a major new version of Kaleidoscope, integrating even tighter with git to offer entirely new insights into your coding projects. Customers can save up to 30% of their recurring costs by inviting friends to Kaleidoscope via the new referral program.

MILLSTATT, Austria - GeorgiaChron -- Kaleidoscope 5 now lets you compare branches, tags, or commits of your projects directly from the app. It offers presets to open common comparisons and a simple way to open more complicated comparisons. Combining changesets and the file history in both directions can help you understand code changes like never before. The new Open Changeset in Kaleidoscope service, also used by Kaleidoscope Prism, offers changeset integration to virtually any app on your Mac, including Xcode.

"Git has undoubtedly become the de facto standard in version control" said Christopher Atlan, CEO of Leitmotif. "Integrating Kaleidoscope more deeply with Git enhances the efficiency and precision of managing changes across multiple contributors. This integration is pivotal for streamlined workflows."
