    1 GIT v1.5.4.6 Release Notes
    2 ==========================
    3 
    4 I personally do not think there is any reason anybody should want to
    5 run v1.5.4.X series these days, because 'master' version is always
    6 more stable than any tagged released version of git.
    7 
    8 This is primarily to futureproof "git-shell" to accept requests
    9 without a dash between "git" and subcommand name (e.g. "git
   10 upload-pack") which the newer client will start to make sometime in
   11 the future.
   12 
   13 Fixes since v1.5.4.5
   14 --------------------
   15 
   16  * Command line option "-n" to "git-repack" was not correctly parsed.
   17 
   18  * Error messages from "git-apply" when the patchfile cannot be opened
   19    have been improved.
   20 
   21  * Error messages from "git-bisect" when given nonsense revisions have
   22    been improved.
   23 
   24  * reflog syntax that uses time e.g. "HEAD@{10 seconds ago}:path" did not
   25    stop parsing at the closing "}".
   26 
   27  * "git rev-parse --symbolic-full-name ^master^2" printed solitary "^",
   28    but it should print nothing.
   29 
   30  * "git apply" did not enforce "match at the beginning" correctly.
   31 
   32  * a path specification "a/b" in .gitattributes file should not match
   33    "sub/a/b", but it did.
   34 
   35  * "git log --date-order --topo-order" did not override the earlier
   36    date-order with topo-order as expected.
   37 
   38  * "git fast-export" did not export octopus merges correctly.
   39 
   40  * "git archive --prefix=$path/" mishandled gitattributes.
   41 
   42 As usual, it also comes with many documentation fixes and clarifications.
