Dear Git users,

It is my pleasure to announce that Git for Windows 2.9.3 is available from:


Changes since Git for Windows v2.9.2 (July 16th 2016)

New Features

  • Comes with Git 2.9.3.
  • Updated Git Credential Manager to version 1.6.0.
  • Includes support for git status --porcelain=v2.
  • Avoids evaluating unnecessary patch IDs when determining which
    commits do not need to be rebased because they are already
  • Sports a new --smudge option for git cat-file that lets it pass
    blob contents through smudge filters configured for the specified

Bug Fixes

  • When offering to Launch Git Bash after the installation, it now
    launches in the home directory, consistent with the Git Bash Start
    Menu entry.
  • When ~/.gitconfig sets core.hideDotFiles=false, git init respects
    that again.
