    1 Git v1.7.8.1 Release Notes
    2 ==========================
    4 Fixes since v1.7.8
    5 ------------------
    7  * In some codepaths (notably, checkout and merge), the ignore patterns
    8    recorded in $GIT_DIR/info/exclude were not honored. They now are.
   10  * "git apply --check" did not error out when given an empty input
   11    without any patch.
   13  * "git archive" mistakenly allowed remote clients to ask for commits
   14    that are not at the tip of any ref.
   16  * "git checkout" and "git merge" treated in-tree .gitignore and exclude
   17    file in $GIT_DIR/info/ directory inconsistently when deciding which
   18    untracked files are ignored and expendable.
   20  * LF-to-CRLF streaming filter used when checking out a large-ish blob
   21    fell into an infinite loop with a rare input.
   23  * The function header pattern for files with "diff=cpp" attribute did
   24    not consider "type *funcname(type param1,..." as the beginning of a
   25    function.
   27  * The error message from "git diff" and "git status" when they fail
   28    to inspect changes in submodules did not report which submodule they
   29    had trouble with.
   31  * After fetching from a remote that has very long refname, the reporting
   32    output could have corrupted by overrunning a static buffer.
   34  * "git pack-objects" avoids creating cyclic dependencies among deltas
   35    when seeing a broken packfile that records the same object in both
   36    the deflated form and as a delta.
   38 Also contains minor fixes and documentation updates.
