The Mac OS X 10.7.4 release is the final build of Git, and now we’re ready to get to work.
This update includes the final release of Git 3.1, the first release in a three-year-long development cycle.
Git 3, released in December 2018, was one of the major releases for Git.
It also introduced a number of new features that were not present in the previous version, including the ability to add or delete files.
This release is a significant milestone for Git on macOS, and I highly recommend upgrading.
The upgrade includes: A number of bug fixes for security vulnerabilities, including CVE-2018-3142, CVE-2017-5059, and CVE-2016-6262.
This means that users who rely on Git to sync code and files from a remote server to their Mac will no longer be vulnerable to those vulnerabilities.
You can download the full list of bugfixes from the GitHub releases page.
Other new features in this release include: A new Git command-line tool, git add-command, which allows developers to quickly add a new file to a Git repository.
This allows them to add and delete files, modify the existing contents of a file, and add or remove tags.
The new git add command allows you to add a Git file to the current working directory, without having to open the repository.
With the addition of the command, you can also add or modify the current directory’s working directory and the path to its child directories, as well as create new folders.
A new feature in Git called git rebase can help automate the process of adding, removing, and modifying files in a Git project.
With this command, the Git master branch is updated to include the latest commits made by the committers, as opposed to the previous method where the master branch was updated every time the committer changes the branch.
The command rebase will perform the addition, removal, and modification of the current branch and all subbranches in the branch, while the commit and remote committers will continue to perform the same tasks in their own branches.
A number a other new features have been added in this update, including: A support for Git 1.9.2, which includes many new features such as the ability for remote users to add new files to the remote repository, as it was introduced with Git 1, and for Git to track the status of remote repositories.
The remote repository can also be accessed using git add -p to add an additional remote repository to the Git repository, and git remote add to add additional remote repositories to the existing Git repository (in the case of Git 1).
Other Git features that have been implemented in this version include: Improved support for merging branches.
If a merge commits changes to a remote branch, Git now adds the new commits to the working directory of the remote branch and the parent remote branch (and any sub-branches) as well.
This way, the merged branch is maintained in sync with the parent branch and its parent remote branches.
Git will also add new branches to the parent repository when it detects a conflict between the remote branches, as a way to resolve conflicts between the two branches.
The ability to rename files using the git rename command.
With Git 1 we used to use the command git rename to rename a file.
This was done because we could only change the name of a single file in the source, while Git 1 supports changing the file name for multiple files.
With version 3.0.1 Git no longer has the option to rename the file’s contents, but now it will use the git add or git diff command to rename each of the file contents, and will then store the new rename value in the remote Git repository for future reference.
Git now supports the –tags option when installing new releases, which enables users to specify a tag to be used by the current build.
When the –release flag is specified, Git will automatically install all new releases in the current release branch, and update the local repository to include all the new releases.
Users can now specify the release to which Git should be installed.
If the –target-version flag is also specified, then Git will be installed on a specific branch of the master repository, which will then be installed in the working tree.
You should also note that Git 3 now includes support for working with Git repositories on a local machine.
