Yeah, that a new release of some software might have some release notes is really a surprise, isn't it. ;-)
It isn't really hidden. Every release of Eclipse comes with a "New & Noteworthy" page, the one for 2019-12 is linked there and is at https://www.eclipse.org/eclipseide/2019-12/noteworthy/ . The EGit New & Noteworthy in turn is linked there. Reading the release notes (i.e., New & Noteworthy pages) when upgrading is a good idea. :-) We could probably link to the EGit N&N from more places, though.
Re: Default setting:
No, we chose the new Apache HTTP as default setting on purpose to shake out bugs. The Apache HTTP client is not new code, and it has been well tested, but -- as I see now -- only on OpenJDK. Frankly said, that IBM in their infinite "wisdom" chose to implement this SSLContext.getInstance() differently than OpenJDK is a big surprise. But it's not a show-stopper; there's a work-around by setting that system property or by switching back to Java built-in HTTP, and the next release of EGit will contain code to make this work with Apache HTTP on IBM JDK without having to set that system property.
