by June 20, 2016 0 comments

The latest version of the open-source distributed version control system Git is now available. Git 2.9 features new features, enhancements, and bug fixes. Git is an open-source version control system.

Version 2.9 brings several changes to Git. Several bugs have been fixed, and there have been some improvements “under the hood” to improve its performance. That’s always good news, but it’s hardly exciting.

In the latest version, Git aims to make submodules faster and more flexible than before. In the last release, the team gave users the option to fetch submodules in parallel in order to save time. This time, it is extending that option to cloning, updating or processing submodules. In addition, users can now specify how to clone and fetch submodules.

Also new in Git 2.9 is the addition of an experimental feature called “multiple work tree,” which promises to keep your work safer by forbidding various operations on a Git branch that’s being accessed from a different location or checked out. The feature detects when the respective branch is being rebased and notifies the user.

The full release notes are available here.
