    1 Git v1.8.2.1 Release Notes
    2 ==========================
    3 
    4 Fixes since v1.8.2
    5 ------------------
    6 
    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).
   11 
   12  * Verification of signed tags were not done correctly when not in C
   13    or en/US locale.
   14 
   15  * 'git commit -m "$msg"' used to add an extra newline even when
   16    $msg already ended with one.
   17 
   18  * The "--match=<pattern>" option of "git describe", when used with
   19    "--all" to allow refs that are not annotated tags to be used as a
   20    base of description, did not restrict the output from the command
   21    to those that match the given pattern.
   22 
   23  * An aliased command spawned from a bare repository that does not say
   24    it is bare with "core.bare = yes" is treated as non-bare by mistake.
   25 
   26  * When "format-patch" quoted a non-ascii strings on the header files,
   27    it incorrectly applied rfc2047 and chopped a single character in
   28    the middle of it.
   29 
   30  * "git archive" reports a failure when asked to create an archive out
   31    of an empty tree.  It would be more intuitive to give an empty
   32    archive back in such a case.
   33 
   34  * "git tag -f <tag>" always said "Updated tag '<tag>'" even when
   35    creating a new tag (i.e. not overwriting nor updating).
   36 
   37  * "git cmd -- ':(top'" was not diagnosed as an invalid syntax, and
   38    instead the parser kept reading beyond the end of the string.
   39 
   40  * Annotated tags outside refs/tags/ hierarchy were not advertised
   41    correctly to the ls-remote and fetch with recent version of Git.
   42 
   43  * The code to keep track of what directory names are known to Git on
   44    platforms with case insensitive filesystems can get confused upon a
   45    hash collision between these pathnames and looped forever.
   46 
   47  * The logic used by "git diff -M --stat" to shorten the names of
   48    files before and after a rename did not work correctly when the
   49    common prefix and suffix between the two filenames overlapped.
   50 
   51  * "git submodule update", when recursed into sub-submodules, did not
   52    accumulate the prefix paths.
   53 
   54  * "git am $maildir/" applied messages in an unexpected order; sort
   55    filenames read from the maildir/ in a way that is more likely to
   56    sort messages in the order the writing MUA meant to, by sorting
   57    numeric segment in numeric order and non-numeric segment in
   58    alphabetical order.
   59 
   60  * When export-subst is used, "zip" output recorded incorrect
   61    size of the file.
   62 
   63  * Some platforms and users spell UTF-8 differently; retry with the
   64    most official "UTF-8" when the system does not understand the
   65    user-supplied encoding name that are the common alternative
   66    spellings of UTF-8.
   67 
   68  * "git branch" did not bother to check nonsense command line
   69    parameters and issue errors in many cases.
   70 
   71  * "git update-index -h" did not do the usual "-h(elp)" thing.
   72 
   73  * perl/Git.pm::cat_blob slurped everything in core only to write it
   74    out to a file descriptor, which was not a very smart thing to do.
   75 
   76  * The SSL peer verification done by "git imap-send" did not ask for
   77    Server Name Indication (RFC 4366), failing to connect SSL/TLS
   78    sites that serve multiple hostnames on a single IP.
   79 
   80  * "git index-pack" had a buffer-overflow while preparing an
   81    informational message when the translated version of it was too
   82    long.
   83 
   84  * Clarify in the documentation "what" gets pushed to "where" when the
   85    command line to "git push" does not say these explicitly.
   86 
   87  * In "git reflog expire", REACHABLE bit was not cleared from the
   88    correct objects.
   89 
   90  * The "--color=<when>" argument to the commands in the diff family
   91    was described poorly.
   92 
   93  * The arguments given to pre-rebase hook were not documented.
   94 
   95  * The v4 index format was not documented.
   96 
   97  * The "--match=<pattern>" argument "git describe" takes uses glob
   98    pattern but it wasn't obvious from the documentation.
   99 
  100  * Some sources failed to compile on systems that lack NI_MAXHOST in
  101    their system header (e.g. z/OS).
  102 
  103  * Add an example use of "--env-filter" in "filter-branch"
  104    documentation.
  105 
  106  * "git bundle verify" did not say "records a complete history" for a
  107    bundle that does not have any prerequisites.
  108 
  109  * In the v1.8.0 era, we changed symbols that do not have to be global
  110    to file scope static, but a few functions in graph.c were used by
  111    CGit from sideways bypassing the entry points of the API the
  112    in-tree users use.
  113 
  114  * "git merge-tree" had a typo in the logic to detect d/f conflicts,
  115    which caused it to segfault in some cases.
