JGit/New and Noteworthy/5.13



The GPG support in bundle org.eclipse.jgit.gpg.bc now also honors the GNUPGHOME environment variable. If set and containing a valid path of a directory, that directory is used as the GPG home directory -- the one that contains the GPG keys. If this environment variable is not set, JGit by default uses %APPDATA%\gnupg on Windows and ~/.gnupg on other operating systems.

If neither is appropriate, users can set the Java system property jgit.gpg.home to define the path. If set and containing a valid directory path, that directory is used (even if GNUPGHOME is also set).


  • Bundle org.eclipse.jgit.gpg.bc newly requires Bouncy Castle 1.69 (previously 1.65).
  • Bundle org.eclipse.jgit.ssh.apache newly requires Apache MINA sshd 2.7.0 (previously 2.6.0). As always, this bundle may not work with newer versions of Apache MINA sshd because of incompatible upstream API changes.
