For improved management and control of application development, you can now define the branch where you save the changes that you make in App Studio. By defining branch preferences, you can use branches as sandboxes to create features that you can review, and then save or discard your changes without affecting a whole application. Also, your team can work on multiple features independently by saving changes in different branches. You can set your branch preferences to a localization ruleset and use App Studio to quickly locate elements of your application.
You can define branch preferences in App Studio and Dev Studio. When you define branch development preferences, Dev Studio uses these preferences as default settings. For example, you can create a branch to enhance a feature, and set the default to save all future changes in that branch.
The following figure shows the Branch development preferences dialog box in which you create a new branch:
