Rider 2021.3: git status bar widget missing

After the update the git status bar widget is missing. It is also not listed using appearance - status bar widgets. The git plugin is enabled.

Anyone experiencing the same and maybe found a solution?

Hi Sascha Andres

Please try to turn on the new toolbar in `View | Appearance | Toolbar` (instead of "Toolbar Classic") for now. The widget is included in the new toolbar.

Turns out I already activated the new toolbar. Anyhow, I've just not realized it's there.

Alexandra Guk thanks for pointing out!

I am having the same issue in Rider 2021.3.1.  If I choose the Classic Toolbar option it's there, but the new toolbar option doesn't have it.

I was about the report the same experience as Matt Smith
However I just realised that there is now a new git widget which appears at the top-left rather than bottom-right.
I must have missed this change in the What's New notes.

Oh wow, there is too.  Despite looking around the UI on several occasions I never saw it.  Thanks Francis!

It's now on top. They seems to have declutered the bars, great idea.

Alexandra Guk I think you mean the opposite?  "Toolbar Classic" will show the branch in the status bar at the bottom. 

If you're installing 2022.2.3 on a box that never had Rider, it will set the default "Toolbar". In this mode, as fabian sosa escalada pointed out, you'll see your branch on the top-left in the toolbar.

If you want it in the status bar, use View > Appearance > Toolbar Classic.
