Hi,

we're pround to announce TortoiseGit 1.8.6.0.

We thank all bug reporters, testers and translators for their help!

Google is shutting down its download services for GoogleCode projects by the end
of this year. We are looking for supporters who can provide hosting or mirror
server capabilities. Please contact me off-list.

You can download it here: http://redir.tortoisegit.org/download
