Git, a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency, is now at version 1.8.3.1.

Every Git version released so far has a hefty changelog and introduced a huge number of improvements, but this latest one is rather skimpy.

Highlights of Git 1.8.3.1:

• When $HOME was misconfigured to point at an unreadable directory, GIT would handle this problem abnormally. This check has been loosened;
• The handling of a negative exclude pattern, for "!dir" directories, was broken in the update to v1.8.3. This regression has been corrected;
• A handful of trivial code clean-ups, documentation updates, updates to the test suite, and other fixes have been implemented.

For a complete list of changes, check the official announcement.
