    1 GIT v1.6.2.2 Release Notes
    2 ==========================
    3 
    4 Fixes since v1.6.2.1
    5 --------------------
    6 
    7 * A longstanding confusing description of what --pickaxe option of
    8   git-diff does has been clarified in the documentation.
    9 
   10 * "git-blame -S" did not quite work near the commits that were given
   11   on the command line correctly.
   12 
   13 * "git diff --pickaxe-regexp" did not count overlapping matches
   14   correctly.
   15 
   16 * "git diff" did not feed files in work-tree representation to external
   17   diff and textconv.
   18 
   19 * "git-fetch" in a repository that was not cloned from anywhere said
   20   it cannot find 'origin', which was hard to understand for new people.
   21 
   22 * "git-format-patch --numbered-files --stdout" did not have to die of
   23   incompatible options; it now simply ignores --numbered-files as no files
   24   are produced anyway.
   25 
   26 * "git-ls-files --deleted" did not work well with GIT_DIR&GIT_WORK_TREE.
   27 
   28 * "git-read-tree A B C..." without -m option has been broken for a long
   29   time.
   30 
   31 * git-send-email ignored --in-reply-to when --no-thread was given.
   32 
   33 * 'git-submodule add' did not tolerate extra slashes and ./ in the path it
   34   accepted from the command line; it now is more lenient.
   35 
   36 * git-svn misbehaved when the project contained a path that began with
   37   two dashes.
   38 
   39 * import-zips script (in contrib) did not compute the common directory
   40   prefix correctly.
   41 
   42 * miscompilation of negated enum constants by old gcc (2.9) affected the
   43   codepaths to spawn subprocesses.
   44 
   45 Many small documentation updates are included as well.
