    1 Git Release Notes
    2 =========================
    4 Fixes since v1.8.1.5
    5 --------------------
    7  * An earlier change to the attribute system introduced at v1.8.1.2 by
    8    mistake stopped a pattern "dir" (without trailing slash) from
    9    matching a directory "dir" (it only wanted to allow pattern "dir/"
   10    to also match).
   12  * The code to keep track of what directory names are known to Git on
   13    platforms with case insensitive filesystems can get confused upon a
   14    hash collision between these pathnames and looped forever.
   16  * When the "--prefix" option is used to "checkout-index", the code
   17    did not pick the correct output filter based on the attribute
   18    setting.
   20  * Annotated tags outside refs/tags/ hierarchy were not advertised
   21    correctly to the ls-remote and fetch with recent version of Git.
   23  * The logic used by "git diff -M --stat" to shorten the names of
   24    files before and after a rename did not work correctly when the
   25    common prefix and suffix between the two filenames overlapped.
   27  * "git update-index -h" did not do the usual "-h(elp)" thing.
   29  * perl/Git.pm::cat_blob slurped everything in core only to write it
   30    out to a file descriptor, which was not a very smart thing to do.
   32  * The SSL peer verification done by "git imap-send" did not ask for
   33    Server Name Indication (RFC 4366), failing to connect SSL/TLS
   34    sites that serve multiple hostnames on a single IP.
   36  * "git bundle verify" did not say "records a complete history" for a
   37    bundle that does not have any prerequisites.
   39 Also contains various documentation fixes.
