Git for Windows Release Notes (Git-184.108.40.206-preview20101002)
Last update: 2 October 2010
These release notes describe issues specific to the Git for Windows
General release notes covering the history of the core git commands are
included in the subdirectory doc/git/html of the installation
directory. Look for files starting with RelNotes.

path, so you need to double the slash (Issue 226). Example: instead of
“/base”, say “//base”. Also, extra care has to be paid to pass Windows
programs Windows paths, as they have no clue about MSys style POSIX
paths — You can use something like $(cmd //c echo “$POSIXPATH”).
