Git 2.8.4 Source Code Management System Brings More Bug Fixes and Improvements

Release highlights of Git 2.8.4 include updated documentation for the “git merge –verify-signatures” command to reflect the fact that only the commit’s signature is being verified, support for hide .git and files marked with a dot in front of them as hidden on Microsoft Windows operating systems, and the ability for the “git fsck” command to catch NUL bytes in a commit object and report them as possible errors.
