    1 Git v1.8.5.5 Release Notes
    2 ==========================
    4 Fixes since v1.8.5.4
    5 --------------------
    7  * The pathspec matching code, while comparing two trees (e.g. "git
    8    diff A B -- path1 path2") was too aggressive and failed to match
    9    some paths when multiple pathspecs were involved.
   11  * "git repack --max-pack-size=8g" stopped being parsed correctly when
   12    the command was reimplemented in C.
   14  * A recent update to "git send-email" broke platforms where
   15    /etc/ssl/certs/ directory exists but cannot be used as SSL_ca_path
   16    (e.g. Fedora rawhide).
   18  * A handful of bugs around interpreting $branch@{upstream} notation
   19    and its lookalike, when $branch part has interesting characters,
   20    e.g. "@", and ":", have been fixed.
   22  * "git clone" would fail to clone from a repository that has a ref
   23    directly under "refs/", e.g. "refs/stash", because different
   24    validation paths do different things on such a refname.  Loosen the
   25    client side's validation to allow such a ref.
   27  * "git log --left-right A...B" lost the "leftness" of commits
   28    reachable from A when A is a tag as a side effect of a recent
   29    bugfix.  This is a regression in 1.8.4.x series.
   31  * "git merge-base --octopus" used to leave cleaning up suboptimal
   32    result to the caller, but now it does the clean-up itself.
   34  * "git mv A B/", when B does not exist as a directory, should error
   35    out, but it didn't.
   37 Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code clean-ups.
