The latest maintenance release Git v220.127.116.11 is now available at the usual places. This contains many bugfixes that have been cooking on the 'master' branch since v1.8.1 was released.
The release tarballs are found at: http://code.google.com/p/git-core/downloads/list and their SHA-1 checksums are: 44b90aab937b0e0dbb0661eb5ec4ca6182e60854 git-18.104.22.168.tar.gz 952e0950d40bb141357be88a63f4cbb58258a4f5 git-htmldocs-22.214.171.124.tar.gz 5089613a434ba09c94f6694d546c246838377760 git-manpages-126.96.36.199.tar.gz Also the following public repositories all have a copy of the v188.8.131.52 tag and the maint branch that the tag points at: url = git://repo.or.cz/alt-git.git url = https://code.google.com/p/git-core/ url = git://git.sourceforge.jp/gitroot/git-core/git.git url = git://git-core.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/git-core/git-core url = https://github.com/gitster/git Git 184.108.40.206 Release Notes ========================= Fixes since v1.8.1 ------------------ * The attribute mechanism didn't allow limiting attributes to be applied to only a single directory itself with "path/" like the exclude mechanism does. * When attempting to read the XDG-style $HOME/.config/git/config and finding that $HOME/.config/git is a file, we gave a wrong error message, instead of treating the case as "a custom config file does not exist there" and moving on. * After failing to create a temporary file using mkstemp(), failing pathname was not reported correctly on some platforms. * http transport was wrong to ask for the username when the authentication is done by certificate identity. * The behaviour visible to the end users was confusing, when they attempt to kill a process spawned in the editor that was in turn launched by Git with SIGINT (or SIGQUIT), as Git would catch that signal and die. We ignore these signals now. * A child process that was killed by a signal (e.g. SIGINT) was reported in an inconsistent way depending on how the process was spawned by us, with or without a shell in between. * After "git add -N" and then writing a tree object out of the index, the cache-tree data structure got corrupted. * "git apply" misbehaved when fixing whitespace breakages by removing excess trailing blank lines in some corner cases. * A tar archive created by "git archive" recorded a directory in a way that made NetBSD's implementation of "tar" sometimes unhappy. * When "git clone --separate-git-dir=$over_there" is interrupted, it failed to remove the real location of the $GIT_DIR it created. This was most visible when interrupting a submodule update. * "git fetch --mirror" and fetch that uses other forms of refspec with wildcard used to attempt to update a symbolic ref that match the wildcard on the receiving end, which made little sense (the real ref that is pointed at by the symbolic ref would be updated anyway). Symbolic refs no longer are affected by such a fetch. * The "log --graph" codepath fell into infinite loop in some corner cases. * "git merge" started calling prepare-commit-msg hook like "git commit" does some time ago, but forgot to pay attention to the exit status of the hook. * "git pack-refs" that ran in parallel to another process that created new refs had a race that can lose new ones. * When a line to be wrapped has a solid run of non space characters whose length exactly is the wrap width, "git shortlog -w" failed to add a newline after such a line. * The way "git svn" asked for password using SSH_ASKPASS and GIT_ASKPASS was not in line with the rest of the system. * "gitweb", when sorting by age to show repositories with new activities first, used to sort repositories with absolutely nothing in it early, which was not very useful. * "gitweb", when sorting by age to show repositories with new activities first, used to sort repositories with absolutely nothing in it early, which was not very useful. * When autoconf is used, any build on a different commit always ran "config.status --recheck" even when unnecessary. * Some scripted programs written in Python did not get updated when PYTHON_PATH changed. * We have been carrying a translated and long-unmaintained copy of an old version of the tutorial; removed. * Portability issues in many self-test scripts have been addressed. Also contains other minor fixes and documentation updates. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Changes since v1.8.1 are as follows: Aaron Schrab (1): Use longer alias names in subdirectory tests Adam Spiers (1): api-allocation-growing.txt: encourage better variable naming Antoine Pelisse (1): merge: Honor prepare-commit-msg return code Christian Couder (1): Makefile: detect when PYTHON_PATH changes Jean-Noël AVILA (1): Add directory pattern matching to attributes Jeff King (9): run-command: drop silent_exec_failure arg from wait_or_whine launch_editor: refactor to use start/finish_command run-command: do not warn about child death from terminal launch_editor: propagate signals from editor to git completion: complete refs for "git commit -c" refs: do not use cached refs in repack_without_ref tests: turn on test-lint by default fix compilation with NO_PTHREADS run-command: encode signal death as a positive integer Jens Lehmann (1): clone: support atomic operation with --separate-git-dir John Keeping (4): git-fast-import(1): remove duplicate '--done' option git-shortlog(1): document behaviour of zero-width wrap git-fast-import(1): combine documentation of --[no-]relative-marks git-fast-import(1): reorganise options Jonathan Nieder (6): config, gitignore: failure to access with ENOTDIR is ok config: treat user and xdg config permission problems as errors doc: advertise GIT_CONFIG_NOSYSTEM config: exit on error accessing any config file build: do not automatically reconfigure unless configure.ac changed docs: manpage XML depends on asciidoc.conf Junio C Hamano (20): apply.c:update_pre_post_images(): the preimage can be truncated format_commit_message(): simplify calls to logmsg_reencode() sh-setup: work around "unset IFS" bug in some shells fetch: ignore wildcarded refspecs that update local symbolic refs xmkstemp(): avoid showing truncated template more carefully t0200: "locale" may not exist t9502: do not assume GNU tar t4014: fix arguments to grep t3600: Avoid "cp -a", which is a GNUism t9020: use configured Python to run the test helper compat/fnmatch: update old-style definition to ANSI t9200: let "cvs init" create the test repository merge --no-edit: do not credit people involved in the side branch SubmittingPatches: who am I and who cares?
