The latest maintenance release Git is now available at the usual places.
This is primarily to tighten the host verification when imap-send is talking to your mail server via TLS/SSL. The topic that was merged to the tip of 'maint' track consists of 3 patches and is based on the 1.7.6 maintenance track. This is to make it easier for the distro folks to merge the topic to their older maintenance branches to issue hotfix binary releases if they wanted to.
This release itself also contains many small updates to the user-manual.

The release tarballs are found at:

and their SHA-1 checksums are:
