I'm a fan of this app for some of my workflows, but always felt there was a lot to be desired. So I am definitely happy about this. Alongside VSCode, I expect more and more good tooling around GitHub. I hope that this raises the bar for competitors, rather than just squashing them.
I made a post a little while ago asking for thoughts on how folks generally make use of the interplay between GitHub and their desktop environment. This strikes me as relevant to that general outlook.
