    1 Git v1.7.11.6 Release Notes
    2 ===========================
    4 Fixes since v1.7.11.5
    5 ---------------------
    7  * "ciabot" script (in contrib/) has been updated with extensive
    8    documentation.
   10  * "git foo" errored out with "Not a directory" when the user had a
   11    non-directory on $PATH, and worse yet it masked an alias "foo" from
   12    running.
   14  * When the user exports a non-default IFS without HT, scripts that
   15    rely on being able to parse "ls-files -s | while read a b c..."
   16    started to fail.  Protect them from such a misconfiguration.
   18  * When the user gives an argument that can be taken as both a
   19    revision name and a pathname without disambiguating with "--", we
   20    used to give a help message "Use '--' to separate".  The message
   21    has been clarified to show where that '--' goes on the command
   22    line.
   24  * Documentation for the configuration file format had a confusing
   25    example.
   27  * Older parts of the documentation described as if having a regular
   28    file in .git/refs/ hierarchy were the only way to have branches and
   29    tags, which is not true for quite some time.
   31  * It was generally understood that "--long-option"s to many of our
   32    subcommands can be abbreviated to the unique prefix, but it was not
   33    easy to find it described for new readers of the documentation set.
   35  * The "--topo-order", "--date-order" (and the lack of either means
   36    the default order) options to "rev-list" and "log" family of
   37    commands were poorly described in the documentation.
   39  * "git commit --amend" let the user edit the log message and then
   40    died when the human-readable committer name was given
   41    insufficiently by getpwent(3).
   43  * The exit status code from "git config" was way overspecified while
   44    being incorrect.  The implementation has been updated to give the
   45    documented status for a case that was documented, and introduce a
   46    new code for "all other errors".
   48  * The output from "git diff -B" for a file that ends with an
   49    incomplete line did not put "\ No newline..." on a line of its own.
   51  * "git diff" had a confusion between taking data from a path in the
   52    working tree and taking data from an object that happens to have
   53    name 0{40} recorded in a tree.
   55  * The "--rebase" option to "git pull" can be abbreviated to "-r",
   56    but we didn't document it.
   58  * When "git push" triggered the automatic gc on the receiving end, a
   59    message from "git prune" that said it was removing cruft leaked to
   60    the standard output, breaking the communication protocol.
   62  * The reflog entries left by "git rebase" and "git rebase -i" were
   63    inconsistent (the interactive one gave an abbreviated object name).
   65  * "git send-email" did not unquote encoded words that appear on the
   66    header correctly, and lost "_" from strings.
   68  * "git stash apply/pop" did not trigger "rerere" upon conflicts
   69    unlike other mergy operations.
   71  * "git submodule <cmd> path" did not error out when the path to the
   72    submodule was misspelt.
   74  * "git submodule update -f" did not update paths in the working tree
   75    that has local changes.
   76    (merge 01d4721 sz/submodule-force-update later to maint).
   78  * "gitweb" when used with PATH_INFO failed to notice directories with
   79    SP (and other characters that need URL-style quoting) in them.
   81  * Fallback 'getpass' implementation made unportable use of stdio API.
   83  * A utility shell function test_seq has been added as a replacement
   84    for the 'seq' utility found on some platforms.
