[ANNOUNCE] Git for Windows 2.16.1(2)

Dear Git users,

It is my pleasure to announce that Git for Windows 2.16.1(2) is available from:


The main purpose of this out-of-band release is to update the BusyBox, cURL,
Perl and Heimdal components to newer versions.

Changes since Git for Windows v2.16.1 (January 22nd 2018)

New Features

  * Comes with Heimdal v7.5.0.
  * Comes with cURL v7.58.0.
  * Comes with Perl v5.26.1.
  * When using GNU nano as Git's default editor, it is now colorful
    (shows syntax-highlighting).
  * Comes with tig v2.3.3.
  * When using Secure Channel as HTTPS transport behind a proxy, it may
    be necessary to disable revocation checks, which is now possible.
  * Comes with BusyBox v1.28.0pre.16550.0b3cdd76c.

Bug Fixes

  * When Git spawns processes, now only the necessary file handles are
    inherited from the parent process, possibly preventing file locking
  * The git update command has been renamed to git
    update-git-for-windows to avoid confusion where users may think
    that git update updates their local repository or worktree.
