1 Git v188.8.131.52 Release Notes
4 Fixes since v1.8.4
7 * Some old versions of bash do not grok some constructs like
8 'printf -v varname' which the prompt and completion code started
9 to use recently. The completion and prompt scripts have been
10 adjusted to work better with these old versions of bash.
12 * In FreeBSD's and NetBSD's "sh", a return in a dot script in a
13 function returns from the function, not only in the dot script,
14 breaking "git rebase" on these platforms (regression introduced
15 in 1.8.4-rc1).
17 * "git rebase -i" and other scripted commands were feeding a
18 random, data dependant error message to 'echo' and expecting it
19 to come out literally.
21 * Setting the "submodule.<name>.path" variable to the empty
22 "true" caused the configuration parser to segfault.
24 * Output from "git log --full-diff -- <pathspec>" looked strange
25 because comparison was done with the previous ancestor that
26 touched the specified <pathspec>, causing the patches for paths
27 outside the pathspec to show more than the single commit has
30 * The auto-tag-following code in "git fetch" tries to reuse the
31 same transport twice when the serving end does not cooperate and
32 does not give tags that point to commits that are asked for as
33 part of the primary transfer. Unfortunately, Git-aware transport
34 helper interface is not designed to be used more than once, hence
35 this did not work over smart-http transfer. Fixed.
37 * Send a large request to read(2)/write(2) as a smaller but still
38 reasonably large chunks, which would improve the latency when the
39 operation needs to be killed and incidentally works around broken
40 64-bit systems that cannot take a 2GB write or read in one go.
42 * A ".mailmap" file that ends with an incomplete line, when read
43 from a blob, was not handled properly.
45 * The recent "short-cut clone connectivity check" topic broke a
46 shallow repository when a fetch operation tries to auto-follow
49 * When send-email comes up with an error message to die with upon
50 failure to start an SSL session, it tried to read the error
51 string from a wrong place.
53 * A call to xread() was used without a loop to cope with short
54 read in the codepath to stream large blobs to a pack.
56 * On platforms with fgetc() and friends defined as macros, the
57 configuration parser did not compile.
59 * New versions of MediaWiki introduced a new API for returning
60 more than 500 results in response to a query, which would cause
61 the MediaWiki remote helper to go into an infinite loop.
63 * Subversion's serf access method (the only one available in
64 Subversion 1.8) for http and https URLs in skelta mode tells its
65 caller to open multiple files at a time, which made "git svn
66 fetch" complain that "Temp file with moniker 'svn_delta' already
67 in use" instead of fetching.
70 Also contains a handful of trivial code clean-ups, documentation
71 updates, updates to the test suite, etc.
