I've added the 2.27.0-rc0 release candidates for Git and Git for
Windows to Bitbucket Server's test matrix. No failures to report.

Thanks as always for these early release candidates!

Best regards,
Bryan Turner

Thank you so much!

To be honest, this time round I would _really_ like to ask for some manual
testing. I upgraded the MSYS2 runtime from being based on Cygwin v3.0.7 to
v3.1.4, and the biggest new feature is support for those new-fangled
pseudo terminals that Windows 10 now supports. I did find a couple of
rough edges in my use cases, but I am not exactly a typical Git for
Windows user...

Could I ask for some manual testing in particular of anything run inside
the Git Bash?

Thanks,
Dscho

Oh, please don't apologize. I appreciate all your help!

Wonderful!

Thank you for testing,

Turns out that I ran into even more issues when trying to do a visual
selection in `vim`: it would frequently "lose" the selection when I moved
via the cursor keys.

So I've come to the conclusion that the pseudo console support code is
still too buggy to unleash onto Git for Windows' users, except as an
experimental option. I will patch it to make the pseudo console feature
opt-in instead of opt-out, and then also offer to configure it in Git for
Windows' installer via an experimental option.

Has anybody else run into issues with console programs (such as `vim`,
interactive Bash, etc)? Or is there anybody with a very different
experience than mine, i.e. _not_ having run into any issues despite using
(interactively) Git Bash extensively?

Ciao,
Dscho

Hi Dscho,

I've installed Git for Windows 2.27.0 rc0 in my $work_machine today,
I've run into this error during installation:

	Cannot create file "<my %localappdata%>\Programs\Git\dev\fd".
	Access is denied.

I have GfW 2.19.0 installed (by IT policy) in "%programfiles%\Git", and
GfW 2.26.2 installed in %localappdata%\Programs\Git. I don't have the
right to install software in my $work_machine

I can still use git-bash (by double-click git-bash.exe) after
installation, though.

If you want more information, please tell me,
I'll try to get it, tomorrow.

My Windows machine is only used to run Ubuntu in a Virtual Box.
My limited exposure to GfW doesn't have any trouble.
My normal vim usage in GfW's git-bash works pretty well.
FWIW, I don't use arrow keys with vim.

Is there anything that you would like to have a cross-check,
I can check during my free time, I can't promise much since I mostly
work inside my Ubuntu virtual machine.
