Dear Git users,

I hereby announce that Git for Windows 2.29.1 is available from:

    https://gitforwindows.org/

Changes since Git for Windows v2.29.0 (October 19th 2020)

Important note: v2.29.0 and v2.29.1 upgrade existing users of Git
Credential Manager for Windows (which was just deprecated) to Git
Credential Manager Core ("GCM Core", which is the designated successor
of the former). This is necessary because GitHub deprecated
password-based authentication and intends to remove support for it
soon, and GCM Core is prepared for this change.

Also, as of v2.29.0, the option to override the branch name used by git
init for the initial branch is featured prominently in the installer.

New Features

  * Comes with Git v2.29.1.
  * The MSYS2 runtime now optionally supports creating Cygwin-style
    symbolic links (via setting the environment variable MSYS=
    winsymlinks:sysfile).
