After far more delay than I'd have liked, version 2.21.0-1 of Git has
been uploaded and should be coming soon to a mirror near you. Because
a lot of the delays in producing this version have been down to
getting a stable and clean build, and that's the sort of thing that
has caused problems in the past, for now this release is available as
a test version only. If you're able, I'd be very grateful if you can
install it and check it works as expected.

If there are no identified problems, I intend to promote this to
stable in a couple of weeks.

This new version incorporates a fix for a long standing path issue that was
introduced Dec 2016:

https://github.com/git/git/commit/05b458c

and I reported Nov 2018:

https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2018-11/msg00136.html

and patched Dec 2018:

https://github.com/git/git/commit/1cadad6

My basic test passes so thats appreciated. Also this new version incorporates a
feature addition "git blame --color-by-age" which was introduced May 2018:

https://github.com/git/git/commit/3d24129

I never requested a new version because... reasons:

https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2018-05/msg00193.html

at any rate, my basic test for "blame" with color passes so thats appreciated.
