Git 2.9 has been released a few days, bringing in some very useful functionality, such as showing renamed files in git diff and git log, forbidding the merge of two branches that have no common ancestors, configurable path to hooks, and more. All are welcome changes, making the life of a developer easier.
But what I found interesting is how two largest git companies – GitHub and BitBucket – reflect on it. Surely, the new release is important to both, but it’s insightful to see which features each of them looks at first. Have a look:
- BitBucket : Git 2.9 is out!
- GitHub: Git 2.9 has been released
