Updating git

updating git-42

Changes already added to the index, as well as new files, will be kept.I just upgraded to Git for Windows, from my previous version 1.7.9.mysysgit.0.

Unfortunately, this is not always possible and results in conflicts.Once you have the path, you can go ahead and uninstall / delete previous version completely.Then if you install and make sure the new installed location is in the path, it should just work fine.I’ve seen a lot of questions on the web about how to update your Mac client to the latest version which contains the fix for the security vulnerability announced last week.It is actually quite simple: Open your terminal prompt and type the following: Then you are going to want to modify your PATH to make git look for the official distro (which we will install in just a sec) to just /usr/local/bin. It is easy just copy and paste this in the terminal window.This problem arose when I began a new Rails project and tried to push it up to Git.

I added the remote: Using the command "where git" find out how command prompt picks up the version.

We also use it in several of the examples in “Contributing to a Project”.

We use it to fetch a single specific reference that is outside of the default space in “Pull Request Refs” and we see how to fetch from a bundle in “Bundling”.

Since it's uninstalled, we don't see it in the list here.

Now we can install the version that we just downloaded.

I'll walk you through these steps now, but it's a good idea for you to open this up and read through it yourself in case there's an update in the future.
