Version 2.3.0 of the Git distributed version control system is now available.

As explained by the 2.3.0 release announcement, "This one ended up to be a release with lots of small corrections and improvements without big uncomfortably exciting features. The recent security fix that went to 2.2.1 and older maintenance tracks is also contained in this update."

Git 2.3.0 brings updates to various sub-commands, a transfer encoding option was added to "git send-email", Git's imap-send now supports using the cURL library, performance improvements, and many bug-fixes over the Git 2.2.x series. Overall, Git 2.3 is a small but significant update for this widely used program by open-source (and closed-source) projects.
