Dear Git users,

I hereby announce that Git for Windows 2.29.0-rc2 is available from:

    https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/releases/tag/v2.29.0-rc2.windows.1

Changes since Git for Windows v2.28.0 (July 28th 2020)

This version upgrades existing users of Git Credential Manager for
Windows (which was just deprecated) to Git Credential Manager Core
("GCM Core", which is the designated successor of the former). This is
necessary because GitHub deprecated password-based authentication and
intends to remove support for it soon, and GCM Core is prepared for
this change.

Also, the option to override the branch name used by git init for the
initial branch is now featured prominently in the installer.

New Features

  * Comes with Git v2.29.0-rc2.
  * Comes with MSYS2 runtime (Git for Windows flavor) based on Cygwin
    3.1.7.
  * Comes with Git LFS v2.12.0.
  * Comes with GNU Privacy Guard v2.2.23.
  * Comes with OpenSSL v1.1.1h.
  * Comes with libcbor v0.8.0.
  * Comes with libfido2 v1.5.0.
  * Comes with OpenSSH v8.4p1.
  * Comes with Git Credential Manager Core v2.0.252.766.
  * Existing Git Credential Manager for Windows users are now
    automatically upgraded to Git Credential Manager Core.
  * Git for Windows' installer learned to let users override the
    default branch used by git init.
  * The installer size was reduced by dropping a couple unneeded .dll
    files.
  * Comes with cURL v7.73.0.

Bug Fixes

  * The credential helper selector (used as default credential helper
    in the Portable Git) now persists the users choice correctly again.
  * The full command-lines of MSYS2 processes (such as cp.exe) spawned
    from Git's Bash can now be seen in sysmon, wmic etc by default.
  * A bug preventing Unicode characters from being used in the window
    title of Git Bash was fixed.
  * OpenSSH was patched to no longer warn about an "invalid format"
    when private and public keys are stored separately.
  * Non-ASCII output of paged Git commands is now rendered correctly in
    Windows Terminal.
  * It is now possible to use wordpad.exe as Git's editor of choice.
  * When using Git via the "Run As..." function, it now uses the
    correct home directory.
  * The Git Bash prompt now works even after calling set -u.
  * Git for Windows can now be installed even with stale AutoRun
    registry entries (e.g. left-overs from a Miniconda installation).
