    The orange exclamation point shows pending merge requests on the branch from your remote repository. If you hover over the orange exclamation point it will show “Pending merge requests: Bitbucket”, or whatever remote repository you use such as GitHub. I tested this by merging or declining inbound merge requests. Once nothing was left pending, the exclamation point went away.

    There is a general reference to this functionality in the release notes (you may need to scroll down to find your version):

    Specifically from there for Version 7:

    BitBucket and Atlassian Stash

    BitBucket and Atlassian Stash are now supported with pull requests and comments, similar to GitHub.

    There is also all the new features and bug fixes in the changelog found here:
