Written by Michael Larabel in Free Software on 26 March 2015 at 06:01 PM EDT. 1 Comment
An early preview release of Git 2.4 is now available but it doesn't add too many features as this cycle has organically found itself doing a ton of polishing and bug fixing.

Git maintainer Junio Hamano explained in announcing Git 2.4.0-rc0, "An early preview release Git v2.4.0-rc0 is now available for testing at the usual places. This cycle is turning out to be a 'product excellence' release---majority of the changes are bugfixes, about one-third of which are also already in the v2.3.x maintenance track."

Those wishing to find out more about the polishing that's went into Git 2.4, see the release announcement that was posted a short time ago to the Linux kernel mailing list.
