News for git-annex 7.20200226:

There was a serious regression in gcrypt and encrypted git-lfs remotes. Since version 7.20200202.7, git-annex incorrectly stored content on those remotes without encrypting it. If your remotes are affected, you will want to make sure to delete any content that git-annex has stored on them that is not encrypted! One way to do so is, before upgrading to this version, run git-annex move --from the affected remotes. It will move only the content that was not encrypted.
