Dear Git users,

It is my pleasure to announce that Git for Windows 2.23.0 is available from:


Changes since Git for Windows v2.22.0 (June 8th 2019)

New Features

  * Comes with Git v2.23.0.
  * Comes with patch level 3 of the MSYS2 runtime (Git for Windows
    flavor) based on Cygwin 3.0.7.
  * Comes with PCRE2 v10.33.
  * Comes with GNU Privacy Guard v2.2.17.
  * Comes with cURL v7.65.3.
  * Comes with Git LFS v2.8.0.
  * When configuring Git for Windows to use plink, there is now a
    checkbox specifically for TortoisePlink.
  * The FSCache feature is now used with git checkout and git reset in
    sparse checkouts.

Bug Fixes

    processes (such as git.exe) but also completely skip all
    environment variables that sort after said variable.
  * git clean -dfx no longer follows NTFS junction points (also known
    as mount points).
  * A workaround now allows cloning to certain network drives (e.g.
  * Fixed CVE-2019-1211 in MinGit/Portable Git by being more careful
    about validating the Windows-wide config.
