Dear Git users,
I hereby announce that Git for Windows 2.41.0-rc2 is available from:
Changes since Git for Windows v2.40.1 (April 25th 2023)
As announced previously, Git for Windows will drop support for Windows
7 and for Windows 8 in one of the next versions, following Cygwin's and
MSYS2's lead (Git for Windows relies on MSYS2 for components such as
Bash and Perl).
Following the footsteps of the MSYS2 and Cygwin projects on which Git
for Windows depends, the 32-bit variant of Git for Windows is being
phased out. As of Git for Windows v2.41.0, the 32-bit variant of the
POSIX emulation layer (known as "MSYS2 runtime", powering Git Bash
among other components shipped with Git for Windows) is in maintenance
mode and will only see security bug fixes (if any). Users relying on
32-bit Git for Windows are highly encouraged to switch to the 64-bit
version whenever possible.
Please also note that the code-signing certificate used to sign Git for
Windows' executables was renewed and may cause Smart Screen to show a
warning until the certificate has gained a certain minimum reputation.
* Comes with Git v2.41.0-rc2.
* Comes with OpenSSH v9.3p1
* Comes with MinTTY v3.6.4.
* The Git for Windows installer now also includes the Git LFS
documentation (i.e. git help git-lfs now works).
* Comes with Perl v5.36.1.
* Comes with GNU Privacy Guard v2.2.41.
* Comes with Git Credential Manager v2.1.2.
* Comes with MSYS2 runtime (Git for Windows flavor) based on Cygwin
3.4.6. (This does not extend to 32-bit Git for Windows, which is
stuck with v3.3.* of the MSYS2 runtime forever.)
* To help with Git for Windows' release mechanics, Git for Windows
now ships with two variants of libcurl.
* Comes with cURL v8.1.1.
* Git GUI's Repository>Explore Working Copy was broken since v2.39.1,
which has been fixed.
* The MSYS2 runtime was adjusted to prepare for an upcoming Windows
