Can this be set so that the current version is displayed, so currently 1.6.9? It 's only a bit difficult to select the right version via Branches and Tags.

No, Github always defaults to master (which is supposed to become 1.7 eventually).

Note that there is also a Release overview where you could download the sources as ZIP.

Thanks! I've completely forgot that. I'll see how to fix that best (probably only for master and 1.6).

Done

Since I'm not very used to the GIT line commands - I suppose I'm not very alone with that - what do you propose for a GUI to get along with all that GIT thingy?
Surprizingly I have two of them installed "Tortoise GIT" and "Git Gui" both never used a long time. I suppose the GitHub Desktop is the right thing. I would appreciate if all the amatours among us could decide to use more or less the same GUI, in case for helping eachother.
Does anybody have already done any experience with those tools?

For those who already worked with TortoiseSVN I'd recommend TortoiseGit; AFAIK it's based on TortoiseSVN and the usage is certainly rather similar.

Not sure if that's necessary. It might be more helpful to learn the basics of the Git command line (even if one is mostly using a GUI); after all, that is the most powerful and general way to use Git. Furthermore, some googling usually quickly yields the required recipe or tip (often on StackOverflow). Note that it's usually fine to mix GUI and CLI usage (sometimes it's even necessary with TortoiseGit, because it doesn't implement all relevant commands, for instance, `git bisect skip` is not yet available).

PS: Several editors and IDEs have some kind of Git integration, in which case it might be best to use this one.
