3.4.110 Jan 2024 19:04 major bugfix: This is a bugfix release which resolves a bug introduced in the v3.4.0 release, where Git LFS may crash if the Git credential manager returns credentials containing one or more empty fields.
3.4.027 Jul 2023 03:16 major bugfix: (26 July 2023). This release is a feature release which includes support for generating. shell scripts for command-line tab-completion of Git LFS commands with the new `git-lfs-completion(1)` command, providing multiple headers to Git credential helpers (a new feature as of Git 2.41), and installing Git LFS with a Git configuration file stored under the XDG configuration path. Note that this release will be made by a different member of the core. team than the person who performed many of the past releases, and thus this release will be signed with a different OpenPGP key. Please follow the steps in the README to download all of the keys for the core team to verify this release.

3.3.001 Dec 2022 10:05 major feature: (30 November 2022). This release is a feature release which includes package support for Red Hat. Enterprise Linux 9 and compatible OSes, experimental support for multiple Remotes, and some command-line helpers for `git lfs push`. In this release, we no longer include vendored versions of our dependencies in. The repository or the tarballs. These were a source of noise and bloat, and Users can easily download the required dependencies with Go itself. Users who Need to continue to vendor the dependencies can use the `make vendor` target. In addition, we've also switched the documentation to AsciiDoc from. Ronn-flavoured Markdown and included the FAQ in the repository. This means that The manual pages now render properly in the GitHub web interface and it's also Much easier to create additional formats, such as PDF, by leveraging the ability of Asciidoctor to convert to DocBook. It should also be noted that `git lfs migrate import --everything` now processes. All refs that aren't special to Git instead of just branches and tags. This is What it was documented to do, but didn't, so we've it. Finally, please note that future releases may be done by a different member of. The core team than many of the past releases, and thus may be signed by a Different OpenPGP key. Please follow the steps in the README to download all of the keys for the core Team to verify releases Successfully in the future. We would like to extend a special thanks to the following open-source. Contributors: @dhiwakarK for ing a broken link. @dscho for improving our installer. @Leo1690 for speeding things up with sparse checkout. @pratap043 for proposing an extension to locking. @rcoup for ing our Makefile and adding scripting features to `git lfs push`. @srohmen for adding support for alternative remotes. @WhatTheFuzz for improving our error messages. @wuhaochen for ing a long-standing with `git lfs migrate import`. Features: Add the FAQ in the repository #5167. Add s
3.2.026 May 2022 03:17 major bugfix: (25 May 2022). This release is a feature release which includes support for machine-readable. formats for a couple more commands, plus the ability to automatically merge LFS-based text files from the command-line. It's likely that the merge driver will see future improvements, but if you have feedback on the design, please use the discussions feature. Note that our binary release archives no longer unpack into the current. directory, and now contain a top-level directory just like the source archives do. We would like to extend a special thanks to the following open-source. contributors: @bbodenmiller for ing the formatting in our manual pages. @breyed for ing a typo in our manual pages. @btoll for improving our README. @rcoup for ing our Accept header syntax. @vtbassmatt for documenting our deprecation of NTLM.

3.1.015 Feb 2022 11:45 major bugfix: (14 Feb 2022). This release is a feature release which includes support for fallback from. Negotiate to Basic authentication, new ARM64 packages for Debian 11, a new Localization infrastructure, and improved netrc support, in addition to various In addition, we've addressed a performance regression for `git lfs.

3.0.025 Sep 2021 07:25 major bugfix: (24 Sep 2021). This release is a major new release and introduces several new features, such as. a pure SSH-based protocol, packages for several new OS versions, support for ARM64 Windows, Git-compatible pattern matching, and locking multiple files on the command line, among other items. When connecting over SSH, the first attempt will be made to use. `git-lfs-transfer`, the pure SSH protocol, and if it fails, Git LFS will fall. back to the hybrid protocol using `git-lfs-authenticate`. Note that no major forges are known to support the pure SSH protocol at this time. Because it is a major release, we've made some backwards-incompatible changes. A (possibly incomplete) list of them is as follows: NTLM support has been completely removed, since nobody volunteered to in it. Users are advised to use Kerberos or Basic authentication instead. When using an SSH URL (that is, the syntax starting with `ssh://`), the leading slash is not stripped off when invoking `git-lfs-authenticate` or. `git-lfs-transfer`. This is compatible with the behavior of Git when invoking commands over SSH. `git lfs fsck` now additionally checks that pointers are canonical and that files that are supposed to be LFS files actually are. It also exits nonzero if any problem is found. Pattern matching should be stricter and should either match the behavior of. `.gitattributes` or `.gitignore`, as appropriate. Deviations from Git's behavior will henceforth be treated as and accordingly. Git LFS will now write a Git LFS repository format version into the repository. This is designed to allow future extension with incompatible changes. Repositories without this version will be assumed to be version 0. Note that this is different from, but modeled on, Git's repository format version. `git lfs lock` and `git lfs unlock` now handle multiple pathname arguments and the JSON format has changed to handle multiple responses. The Go package name now contains a version number. This should
2.13.011 Dec 2020 03:25 major feature: (10 Dec 2020). This release introduces several new features, such as the `--above` option to. `git lfs migrate import` and support for `socks5h` proxies. In addition, many. Have been and several miscellaneous have been included. Unless someone steps up to and maintain NTLM support, this will be the last. Git LFS release to support NTLM. See #4247 for more details. Note that Git LFS Supports Kerberos as well, which is far more secure and may be a viable Replacement in many situations. We would like to extend a special thanks to the following open-source. Contributors: @EliRibble for adding support for the `--above` option to `git lfs migrate import`. @andrewshadura for adding support for the `GIT_LFS_SKIP_PUSH` environment variable. @sinbad for ing problems with retaining objects used by stashes. @tklauser for cleaning up our use of error constants in the code.
