Git 2.3.1 Officially Released with a Bunch of Improvements

The Git 2.3.1 point release also repairs an error message from the “git commit” command in order to avoid any confusion when adding an author name that doesn’t exist as a value to the “–author=” parameter. The broken pack .idx file that prevented the dumb HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) transport from retrieving a decent copy of the repository has been removed.
