Additional Information:
Comment 1 Marius Ungureanu 2014-03-13 11:58:18 UTC
This should be fixed when we switch to IKVM JGit.
Comment 2 Matt 2014-05-23 08:30:37 UTC
While I no longer get this exception simply by right clicking, I do get it when I try to rename or add a file. Any ideas?

Comment 3 Marius Ungureanu 2014-12-13 23:01:22 UTC
Sorry, I missed the last comment. Could you nuke your addin cache? It seems your NGit is stale for some reason.
Comment 4 Marius Ungureanu 2015-04-27 09:57:36 UTC
Should be fixed with libgit2 implementation.
Comment 5 Marius Ungureanu 2015-05-08 13:55:01 UTC
Due to changing the whole underlying system in 6.0, this should no longer be an issue. Marking as not reproducible due to it being a typeload exception and these assemblies not existing any longer in 6.0.
