-\cf2\b\fs24 Warning\cf1\par
-\cf2\fs20 This version uses the new directory layout "libexec/git-core", which was introduced with Git 1.6. The new layout requires special adjustments on Windows, which have not yet received much testing. Please report problems to the mailing list.\cf1\b0\par

+\b\fs24 Introduction\b0\fs20\par
These release notes describe issues specific to the Windows release.\par
\pard\fi144 General release notes covering the history of the core git commands are included in the subdirectory doc/git/html of the installation directory. Look for files starting with RelNotes.\par

\b\fs24 Known issues\par
-\pard{\pntext\f1\'B7\tab}{\*\pn\pnlvlblt\pnf1\pnindent0{\pntxtb\'B7}}\fi-288\li432\b0\fs20 git svn is excluded from the end-user installer because it does not reliably work (see discussions on the mailing list). If you want to use git svn you can install the full msysgit developer environment, as explained on the msysgit homepage.\par
-{\pntext\f1\'B7\tab}Some commands are not yet supported on Windows and excluded from the installation; namely: git archimport, git cvsexportcommit, git cvsimport, git cvsserver, git filter-branch, git instaweb, git send-email, git shell, git svn.\par
+\pard{\pntext\f1\'B7\tab}{\*\pn\pnlvlblt\pnf1\pnindent0{\pntxtb\'B7}}\fi-288\li432\b0\fs20 Some commands are not yet supported on Windows and excluded from the installation; namely: git archimport, git cvsexportcommit, git cvsimport, git cvsserver, git filter-branch, git instaweb, git send-email, git shell.\par
{\pntext\f1\'B7\tab}The Logitec QuickCam software can cause spurious crashes. See "Why does make often crash creating a sh.exe.stackdump file when I try to compile my source code?" in the MinGW FAQs (http://www.mingw.org/MinGWiki/index.php/FAQ).\par
{\pntext\f1\'B7\tab}The Quick Launch icon will only be installed for the user running setup (typically the Administrator). This is a technical restriction and will not change.\par
{\pntext\f1\'B7\tab}Git Bash launched through the Explorer shell extension does not have the git icon in its taskbar. This is a technical restriction and will not change.\par
-{\pntext\f1\'B7\tab}Repositories >2 GByte are not yet supported.\par
{\pntext\f1\'B7\tab}git send-mail does not work properly (Issue 27).\par
{\pntext\f1\'B7\tab}curl uses $HOME/_netrc instead of $HOME/.netrc.\par
{\pntext\f1\'B7\tab}If you want to specify a different location for --upload-pack, you have to start the absolute path with two slashes. Otherwise MSys will mangle the path.\par
{\pntext\f1\'B7\tab}git clone fails when the repository contains UTF-8 filepaths (Issue 80).\par
