Dear Git users,

It is my pleasure to announce that Git for Windows 2.11.0(2) is available from:


Changes since Git for Windows v2.11.0 (December 1st 2016)

New Features

  • Reading a large index has been speeded up using pthreads.
  • The checkout operation was speeded up for the common cases.
  • The status operation was made faster in large worktrees with many
  • The diff operation saw performance improvements when working on a
    huge number of renamed files.
  • PuTTY's plink.exe can now be used in GIT_SSH_COMMAND without
    jumping through hoops, too.
  • The MSYS2 runtime was synchronized with Cygwin 2.6.1.

Bug Fixes

  • Non-ASCII characters are now shown properly again in Git Bash.
  • Implicit NTLM authentication works again when accessing a remote
    repository via HTTP/HTTPS without having to specify empty user name
    and password.
  • Our poll() emulation now uses 64-bit tick counts to avoid the (very
    rare) wraparound issue where it could miscalculate time differences
    every 49 days.
  • The --no-lock-index option of git status is now also respected also
    in submodules.
  • The regression of v2.11.0 where Git could no longer push to shared
    folders via UNC paths is fixed.
  • A bug in the MSYS2 runtime where it performed POSIX->Windows
    argument conversion incorrectly was fixed.
  • The MSYS2 runtime was prepared to access the FAST_CWD internal data
    structure in upcoming Windows versions.
  • Fixed a bug in the experimental builtin difftool where it would not
    handle copied/renamed files properly.
