What happened to GitLens?


1 min read

Today I updated Gitlens.

Then, an icon appeared in the activity bar(*1). I didn't like it very much, but I passed. 😤
However, I found that something I had never installed(*2). Since the publisher is GitKraken, it was probably installed due to an update in GitLens.

I immediately uninstalled this.

And returned the version of GitLens to 11.7.0.
I went straight to the marketplace and checked everyone's reactions. Everyone was angry. 🤬

Below is GitKraken's comment I found among GitLens reviews:
