Git for Windows Release Notes (Git-1.7.4-preview20110204)

Last update: 4 February 2011


These release notes describe issues specific to the Git for Windows

General release notes covering the history of the core git commands are
included in the subdirectory doc/git/html of the installation
directory. Look for files starting with RelNotes.

Known issues

- Some commands are not yet supported on Windows and excluded from the
  installation; namely: git archimport, git cvsexportcommit, git
  cvsimport, git cvsserver, git instaweb, git shell.

- The Logitec QuickCam software can cause spurious crashes. See "Why
  does make often crash creating a sh.exe.stackdump file when I try to
  compile my source code?" on the MinGW Wiki

- The Quick Launch icon will only be installed for the user running
  setup (typically the Administrator). This is a technical restriction
  and will not change.

- curl uses $HOME/_netrc instead of $HOME/.netrc.

- If you want to specify a different location for --upload-pack, you
  have to start the absolute path with two slashes. Otherwise MSys will
  mangle the path.

- git and bash have serious problems with non-ASCII file names (Issue
  80, 159).

- If configured to use plink, you will have to connect with putty first
  and accept the host key.

- As merge tools are executed using the MSys bash, options starting with
  "/" need to be handled specially: MSys would interpret that as a POSIX
  path, so you need to double the slash (Issue 226).  Example: instead
  of "/base", say "//base".  Also, extra care has to be paid to pass
  Windows programs Windows paths, as they have no clue about MSys style
  POSIX paths -- You can use something like $(cmd //c echo
