Git a free and open source released a new version 2.15, it is a distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to large projects with speed and efficiency.It is a client for the Popular GitHub.

In this tutorial, I will show you how to install git 2.15 On Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / 17.04 , LinuxMint and CentOS

The Latest version of GIT is 2.15 which is a stable version and it is released on 30th October 2017

Changelog

  • Use of an empty string as a pathspec element that is used for 'everything matches' is still warned and Git asks users to use a more explicit '.' for that instead.
  • The hope is that existing users will not mind this change, and eventually the warning can be turned into a hard error, upgrading the deprecation into removal of this (mis)feature.
  • That is now scheduled to happen in Git v2.16, the next major release after this one.
  • Git now avoids blindly falling back to ".git" when the setup sequence said we are _not_ in Git repository. 
  • A corner case that happens to work right now may be broken by a call to BUG().
  • We've tried hard to locate such cases and fixed them, but there might still be cases that need to be addressed--bug reports are greatly appreciated.
  • "branch --set-upstream" that has been deprecated in Git 1.8 has finally been retired.
