Dear Git users,

I hereby announce that Git for Windows 2.39.0-rc2 is available from:


Changes since Git for Windows v2.38.1 (October 18th 2022)

New Features

  * Comes with Git v2.39.0-rc2.
  * Comes with OpenSSL v1.1.1s.
  * Comes with cURL v7.86.0.
  * The Portable Git edition (which comes as a self-extracting 7-Zip
    archive) now uses the latest 7-Zip version to self-extract.
  * Comes with OpenSSH v9.1p1.
  * It is now possible to generate and use SSH keys protected by
    security keys (AKA FIDO devices) via Windows Hello, e.g. via
    ssh-keygen.exe -t ecdsa-sk.
  * Portable Git no longer configures color.diff, color.status and
    color.branch individually, but configures color.ui instead, which
    makes it easier to override the default.
  * Comes with GNU TLS v3.7.8.
  * Comes with Git Credential Manager Core v2.0.877.
  * Comes with MinTTY v3.6.2.
  * Comes with Bash v5.2 patchlevel 12.
  * Comes with Git LFS v3.3.0.

Bug Fixes

  * The Git executables (e.g. git.exe itself) used to have incomplete
    version information recorded in their resources, which has been
  * A regression introduced in Git for Windows v2.38.0 that prevented
    git.exe from running in Windows Nano Server containers was fixed.
