Dear Git users,

I hereby announce that Git for Windows 2.28.0 is available from:


Changes since Git for Windows v2.27.0 (June 1st 2020)

New Features

  * Comes with Git v2.28.0.
  * Comes with subversion v1.14.0.
  * Comes with the designated successor of Git Credential Manager for
    Windows (GCM for Windows), the cross-platform Git Credential
    Manager Core. For now, this is opt-in, with the idea of eventually
    retiring GCM for Windows.
  * Comes with cURL v7.71.1.
  * Comes with Perl v5.32.0.
  * Comes with MSYS2 runtime (Git for Windows flavor) based on Cygwin
    3.1.6 (including the improvements of Cygwin 3.1.5).
  * Comes with GNU Privacy Guard v2.2.21.

Bug Fixes

  * A typo was fixed in the installer.
  * The new git pull behavior option now records the fast-forward
    choice correctly.
  * In v2.27.0, git svn was broken completely, which has been fixed.
  * Some Git operations could end up with bogus modified symbolic links
    (where git status would report changes but git diff would not),
    which is now fixed.
  * When reinstalling (or upgrading) Git for Windows, the "Pseudo
    Console Support" choice is now remembered correctly.
  * Under certain circumstances, the Git Bash window (MinTTY) would
    crash frequently, which has been addressed.
  * When pseudo console support is enabled, the VIM editor sometimes
    had troubles accepting certain keystrokes, which was fixed.
  * Due to a bug, it was not possible to disable Pseudo Console support
    by reinstalling with the checkbox turned off, which has been fixed.
  * A bug with enabled Pseudo Console support, where git add -i would
    not quit the file selection mode upon an empty input, has been
  * The cleanup mode called "scissors" in git commit now handles CR/LF
    line endings correctly.
  * When cloning into an existing directory, under certain
    circumstances, the core.worktree option was set unnecessarily. This
    has been fixed.
