Please, add support for Git worktree "linked working tree" [1].

The current state is:
- linked working tree files look like new files (green highlighting)
- viewing file history and diff does not work

Updated the version number and platform as this is an issue in 8.2 on Windows 10 x64 too. Also added a "Depends on" as that issue is of a similar nature.

@gpebrownbridge The version number should not be changed once an issue has been filed. It's meant for "the first version this issue was reported against". Also, I don't see how git submodules are related to git working trees.
Comment 3 gpebrownbridge 2017-09-22 16:16:56 UTC
@terje7601 My apologies regarding the version number. Regarding the submodules, they both use a .git file to point to the actual location of the .git directory. Feel free to remove the dependency if you don't think that information is useful.
