Exciting news in the dev world – a major new version of the Git command-line utility has been released, Git 2.3.0.

The good folks over at GitHub have picked out their favourite new features and given an excellent breakdown of what they do and when to use them.

Here’s a quick-glance overview:

  • Push to deploy – Push changes directly to the repository on your server for instant deploy.   
  • Faster cloning – instead of transferring a lot of data over the network, Git copies the objects it can from a local repository and the remainder from the remote repository. The two clones remain independent.
  • Simple git push behaviour – avoid accidentally pushing changes to the wrong branch.
  • Flexible SSH invocation – tweak how Git connects to a remote host via the SSH protocol with a new shell variable.
  • Friendlier credential subsystem – scripts which don’t expect user input will no longer hang.
  • Bug fixes, improvements & security fix.

While 2.3 is slightly smaller than recent feature releases, it still involved 255 non-merge commits by 61 contributors, with 19 new people involved this time round!
