    Git version 2.14.4 for z/OS is now available for download from Rocket Software, at:

     https://my.rocketsoftware.com/
    

    This version supersedes the prior version, Git 2.3.5.

    In addition to the platform-generic changes from the previous version, the following z/OS-specific changes have been made:

    • The https protocol is now supported for access to remote repositories, in addition to the ssh protocol.

    • The working-tree-encoding attribute has been replaced by a new attribute, zos-working-tree-encoding.

    NOTE

    It is vital that all users of the working-tree-encoding attribute migrate to the new zos-working-tree-encoding attribute as soon as possible. See the release notes notes (supplied with the download) regarding an incompatibility with git releases after 2.18 on other platforms.

    Regarding the “zos-working-tree-encoding”…

    I assume I could code “zos-working-tree-encoding” in repos using my current 2.3.5 version of Git together with “working-tree-encoding”. So when I switch to 2.14.4 the encoding would be seamless. I’d remove “working-tree-encoding” once 2.14.4 is accepted into production.

    Comments ?

    Regards, Gary

    Yes. In 2.3.5, zos-working-tree-encoding is not a recognized attribute and will be ignored. In 2.14.4, it has priority over working-tree-encoding.
