As part of our participation in the open source SCM community, WANdisco provides up-to-date binary downloads for Git and Subversion for all major platforms. We now have the latest Git binaries available for download on our Git downloads site.
One interesting new feature is git push –atomic. When you’re pushing several refs (e.g. branches) at once, this feature makes sure that either all the refs are accepted or none are. That’s useful if you’re making related changes on several branches at once. Those who merge patches onto several releases at once are often in this position.
The Git community has done a great job of ensuring a stable upgrade process, so there’s generally little concern about upgrading. It’s always a good idea to review the release notes of course.
