This is as intended and won't be changed, sorry.

Can you confirm the exact output you see on Windows?

Fixed this, thanks. Will be in the next MEAP release.

Re: MEAP v3 1.4.1
"Can you confirm the exact output you see on Windows?"
=> I have cut and pasted exactly what I get:

C:UsersJohnDoeGitInPracticeRedux>git add GitInPractice.asciidoc

C:UsersJohnDoeGitInPracticeRedux>git status
On branch master

Initial commit

Changes to be committed:
(use "git rm --cached <file>..." to unstage)

new file: GitInPractice.asciidoc

To be clear:
- I am doing this under Windows 7.
- "git --version" shows: "git version 1.9.0.msysgit.0".
- I am issuing my git commands directly from the Command Prompt window. Should I be using some kind of shell instead?

"Should I be using some kind of shell instead?"

=> A newbie user error on my part.

Once I issued my git commands using Git Bash rather than the Windows Command Prompt window (which works, but imperfectly) everything was fine. Case closed.

Re: MEAP v3 1.4.1
Mystery solved. As mentioned in http://www.manning-sandbox.com/thread.jspa?messageID=158328#158328 I've updated the text to clarify and it'll be in the next MEAP. Thanks!
