Dear Git users,

It is my pleasure to announce that Git for Windows 2.22.0 is available from:


Changes since Git for Windows v2.21.0 (February 26th 2019)

New Features

  * Comes with Git v2.22.0.
  * The awk included in Git for Windows now includes extensions such as
  * The file/product version stored in the installer's .exe file now
    matches the version of the included git.exe file's.
  * Comes with OpenSSH v8.0p1.
  * Comes with Git LFS v2.7.2.
  * Comes with MSYS2 runtime (Git for Windows flavor) based on Cygwin
    v3.x (see release notes for Cygwin 3.0.0, 3.0.1, 3.0.2, 3.0.3,
    3.0.4, 3.0.5, 3.0.6, and 3.0.7).
  * There are now experimental built-in versions of git add -i and git
    add -p, i.e. those modes are now a lot faster (in particular at
    startup). You can opt into using them on the last installer page.
  * PortableGit now comes with a meta credential helper, i.e. a GUI
    that lets the user choose which of the available credential helpers
    to use. This should help to avoid storing credentials on other
    people's machines when running portable Git from a thumb drive.
  * Comes with gawk v5.0.0.
  * Comes with Git Credential Manager v1.19.0.
  * Comes with git-flow v1.12.3.
  * Comes with OpenSSL v1.1.1c.
  * Comes with GNU Privacy Guard v2.2.16, specifically patched to
    handle Windows paths.
  * Comes with cURL v7.65.1.
  * Comes with Heimdal v7.5.0. -packages/pull/33).

Bug Fixes

  * Git for Windows' updater is now accessible, i.e. it can be read by
    a screen reader.
  * git update-git-for-windows (i.e. the auto updater of Git for
    Windows) now reports correctly when it failed to access the GitHub
  * Git for Windows' updater no longer runs into GitHub API rate limits
    (this used to be quite common in enterprise scenarios, where many
    users would share one IP as far as GitHub is concerned).
  * gitk no longer fails with "filename too long" when there are 1,000+
  * A bug which on occasion caused lengthy rebase runs to crash without
    error message was fixed.
  * Two workarounds from the Git for Windows 1.x era (concerning
    reading credentials via GUI and fetching via git://) were
    considered obsolete.
  * git difftool --no-index can now be run outside of Git worktrees.
  * git rebase -i used to get confused when an exec command created new
    commits and then appended pick lines for them. This has been fixed.
  * During a run of git rebase --rebase-merges, the output of git
    status now shows label lines correctly, i.e. with the labels' names
    instead of the commit hash they point to.
  * We now avoid problems updating the commit graph when
