Git 2.31 Released With Moving More Of The Bisecting Code To C
Git 2.31 isn't the most exciting update in recent times but some of the highlights to this new release include:
- Continuing to rewrite more of the "git bisect" sub-command in C code. This ultimately should help in faster Git bisect operations when the transition is complete.
- Initial work on changes for FSMONITOR integration.
- Retiring more names that have "SHA1" in it, given the ongoing transition to using SHA-256 hashes.
- Continued work on preparing Git itself to be able to use the main branch name by default rather than master.
- While already fixed for Git 2.30.2 and prior, Git 2.31 does bring the fixes as well for the recent "git clone" vulnerability that could potentially lead to remote code execution.
