    1 Git v1.7.11.6 Release Notes
    2 ===========================
    3 
    4 Fixes since v1.7.11.5
    5 ---------------------
    6 
    7  * "ciabot" script (in contrib/) has been updated with extensive
    8    documentation.
    9 
   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.
   13 
   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.
   17 
   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.
   23 
   24  * Documentation for the configuration file format had a confusing
   25    example.
   26 
   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.
   30 
   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.
   34 
   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.
   38 
   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).
   42 
   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".
   47 
   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.
   50 
   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.
   54 
   55  * The "--rebase" option to "git pull" can be abbreviated to "-r",
   56    but we didn't document it.
   57 
   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.
   61 
   62  * The reflog entries left by "git rebase" and "git rebase -i" were
   63    inconsistent (the interactive one gave an abbreviated object name).
   64 
   65  * "git send-email" did not unquote encoded words that appear on the
   66    header correctly, and lost "_" from strings.
   67 
   68  * "git stash apply/pop" did not trigger "rerere" upon conflicts
   69    unlike other mergy operations.
   70 
   71  * "git submodule <cmd> path" did not error out when the path to the
   72    submodule was misspelt.
   73 
   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).
   77 
   78  * "gitweb" when used with PATH_INFO failed to notice directories with
   79    SP (and other characters that need URL-style quoting) in them.
   80 
   81  * Fallback 'getpass' implementation made unportable use of stdio API.
   82 
   83  * A utility shell function test_seq has been added as a replacement
   84    for the 'seq' utility found on some platforms.
