    1 Git v1.7.6.1 Release Notes
    2 ==========================
    3 
    4 Fixes since v1.7.6
    5 ------------------
    6 
    7  * Various codepaths that invoked zlib deflate/inflate assumed that these
    8    functions can compress or uncompress more than 4GB data in one call on
    9    platforms with 64-bit long, which has been corrected.
   10 
   11  * "git unexecutable" reported that "unexecutable" was not found, even
   12    though the actual error was that "unexecutable" was found but did
   13    not have a proper she-bang line to be executed.
   14 
   15  * Error exits from $PAGER were silently ignored.
   16 
   17  * "git checkout -b <branch>" was confused when attempting to create a
   18    branch whose name ends with "-g" followed by hexadecimal digits,
   19    and refused to work.
   20 
   21  * "git checkout -b <branch>" sometimes wrote a bogus reflog entry,
   22    causing later "git checkout -" to fail.
   23 
   24  * "git diff --cc" learned to correctly ignore binary files.
   25 
   26  * "git diff -c/--cc" mishandled a deletion that resolves a conflict, and
   27    looked in the working tree instead.
   28 
   29  * "git fast-export" forgot to quote pathnames with unsafe characters
   30    in its output.
   31 
   32  * "git fetch" over smart-http transport used to abort when the
   33    repository was updated between the initial connection and the
   34    subsequent object transfer.
   35 
   36  * "git fetch" did not recurse into submodules in subdirectories.
   37 
   38  * "git ls-tree" did not error out when asked to show a corrupt tree.
   39 
   40  * "git pull" without any argument left an extra whitespace after the
   41    command name in its reflog.
   42 
   43  * "git push --quiet" was not really quiet.
   44 
   45  * "git rebase -i -p" incorrectly dropped commits from side branches.
   46 
   47  * "git reset [<commit>] paths..." did not reset the index entry correctly
   48    for unmerged paths.
   49 
   50  * "git submodule add" did not allow a relative repository path when
   51    the superproject did not have any default remote url.
   52 
   53  * "git submodule foreach" failed to correctly give the standard input to
   54    the user-supplied command it invoked.
   55 
   56  * submodules that the user has never showed interest in by running
   57    "git submodule init" was incorrectly marked as interesting by "git
   58    submodule sync".
   59 
   60  * "git submodule update --quiet" was not really quiet.
   61 
   62   * "git tag -l <glob>..." did not take multiple glob patterns from the
   63    command line.
