    Git 2.26 for z/OS has been released and is generally available via conda for download and installation.

    In addition to the platform-independent changes between Git release 2.14.5 and 2.26.2, the following changes apply to the z/OS port.
    • Many more character encodings are now supported on z/OS
    • The Git encoding (the character encoding used in the Git server repositories) for text will now always be UTF-8
    • There are no longer 'default' encodings applied for files in the working tree. This means that, for any given file, if no treatment is specified in gitattributes file:
    • Git will not set a file tag during clone/checkout
    • Git will not allow a tagged file to be added to the index

    *** It is important to read the release notes section: Migrating from Git for z/OS 2.3.5 or Git for z/OS 2.14.4.

    z/OS Git 2.26 is *only* available for download and install via conda, the new download and install system for all z/OS open source language and tool ports.
