    1 Git v2.3.1 Release Notes
    2 ========================
    4 Fixes since v2.3
    5 ----------------
    7  * The interactive "show a list and let the user choose from it"
    8    interface "add -i" used showed and prompted to the user even when
    9    the candidate list was empty, against which the only "choice" the
   10    user could have made was to choose nothing.
   12  * "git apply --whitespace=fix" used to under-allocate the memory
   13    when the fix resulted in a longer text than the original patch.
   15  * "git log --help" used to show rev-list options that are irrelevant
   16    to the "log" command.
   18  * The error message from "git commit", when a non-existing author
   19    name was given as value to the "--author=" parameter, has been
   20    reworded to avoid misunderstanding.
   22  * A broken pack .idx file in the receiving repository prevented the
   23    dumb http transport from fetching a good copy of it from the other
   24    side.
   26  * The documentation incorrectly said that C(opy) and R(ename) are the
   27    only ones that can be followed by the score number in the output in
   28    the --raw format.
   30  * Fix a misspelled conditional that is always true.
   32  * Code to read branch name from various files in .git/ directory
   33    would have misbehaved if the code to write them left an empty file.
   35  * The "git push" documentation made the "--repo=<there>" option
   36    easily misunderstood.
   38  * After attempting and failing a password-less authentication
   39    (e.g. kerberos), libcURL refuses to fall back to password based
   40    Basic authentication without a bit of help/encouragement.
   42  * Setting diff.submodule to 'log' made "git format-patch" produce
   43    broken patches.
   45  * "git rerere" (invoked internally from many mergy operations) did
   46    not correctly signal errors when told to update the working tree
   47    files and failed to do so for whatever reason.
   49  * "git blame HEAD -- missing" failed to correctly say "HEAD" when it
   50    tried to say "No such path 'missing' in HEAD".
   52 Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code clean-ups.
