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. Features: Add --above parameter to 'migrate import'. #4276. Add GIT_LFS_SKIP_PUSH to allow skipping the pre-push hook #4202. Lfshttp: add support for socks5h proxies #4259. Add manual pages to release assets #4230. Honor GIT_WORK_TREE #4269. : Make git lfs migrate import handle missing extensions #4318. fs: don't panic when using a too-short object ID to push #4307.

2.12.003 Sep 2020 00:45 major feature: (1 Sep 2020). This release introduces several new features, such as support for the SHA-256. Repositories coming in a future version of Git, restored support for Go 1.11, The ability to read the contents of.lfsconfig from the repository, signed and Notarized binaries on macOS, and pre-built 32-bit ARM binaries on Linux.
