Git 2.6.4 Open Source Distributed Version Control System Has Many Improvements and Fixes

Git 2.6.4 is here to add support for talking HTTP and HTTPS over socks proxy, to improve the “configure” script with support for -lpthread testing, as well as to support ignoring of standard input for all hooks. It also includes a few fixes for some portability issues, one introduced in the first maintenance release of Git 2.6, and another one related to the Microsoft Windows operating system, which could have rewritten the $SHELL variable via non-POSIX paths.
