Hi git-devs,


I installed git 2.27.0 on a fresh Windows 10 system, there where no old installations of mingw or git. Unfortunatly I have encountered a bug with vim when doing 'git rebase -i' or 'git commit':

I am not able to type capital letters, so commands for selecting rows (<Shift>V), pasting above (<Shift>P) etc are not working. I am also not able to type 'ABCDE' in insertion mode. Small letters and capital umlauts (ÄÖÜ) work. If I open the vi without git, I can type the capital letters. If I use nano as editor, I can type capital letters as well. 

Downgrading to git 2.24.1.2 solved the problem for now (I double checked and reinstalled 2.27.0 again => same issue).


Regards

Daniel Dyk

If I remember correctly this occurred because of changes to the terminal
support used. It's been reported on the Git-for-Windows Issues [1] list
and a fresh snapshot [2] created that resolves the problem .

Installing the latest snapshot resolved it, thanks.
