    1 Git v2.10.2 Release Notes
    2 =========================
    3 
    4 Fixes since v2.10.1
    5 -------------------
    6 
    7  * The code that parses the format parameter of for-each-ref command
    8    has seen a micro-optimization.
    9 
   10  * The "graph" API used in "git log --graph" miscounted the number of
   11    output columns consumed so far when drawing a padding line, which
   12    has been fixed; this did not affect any existing code as nobody
   13    tried to write anything after the padding on such a line, though.
   14 
   15  * Almost everybody uses DEFAULT_ABBREV to refer to the default
   16    setting for the abbreviation, but "git blame" peeked into
   17    underlying variable bypassing the macro for no good reason.
   18 
   19  * Doc update to clarify what "log -3 --reverse" does.
   20 
   21  * An author name, that spelled a backslash-quoted double quote in the
   22    human readable part "My \"double quoted\" name", was not unquoted
   23    correctly while applying a patch from a piece of e-mail.
   24 
   25  * The original command line syntax for "git merge", which was "git
   26    merge <msg> HEAD <parent>...", has been deprecated for quite some
   27    time, and "git gui" was the last in-tree user of the syntax.  This
   28    is finally fixed, so that we can move forward with the deprecation.
   29 
   30  * Codepaths that read from an on-disk loose object were too loose in
   31    validating what they are reading is a proper object file and
   32    sometimes read past the data they read from the disk, which has
   33    been corrected.  H/t to Gustavo Grieco for reporting.
   34 
   35  * "git worktree", even though it used the default_abbrev setting that
   36    ought to be affected by core.abbrev configuration variable, ignored
   37    the variable setting.  The command has been taught to read the
   38    default set of configuration variables to correct this.
   39 
   40  * A low-level function verify_packfile() was meant to show errors
   41    that were detected without dying itself, but under some conditions
   42    it didn't and died instead, which has been fixed.
   43 
   44  * When "git fetch" tries to find where the history of the repository
   45    it runs in has diverged from what the other side has, it has a
   46    mechanism to avoid digging too deep into irrelevant side branches.
   47    This however did not work well over the "smart-http" transport due
   48    to a design bug, which has been fixed.
   49 
   50  * When we started cURL to talk to imap server when a new enough
   51    version of cURL library is available, we forgot to explicitly add
   52    imap(s):// before the destination.  To some folks, that didn't work
   53    and the library tried to make HTTP(s) requests instead.
   54 
   55  * The ./configure script generated from configure.ac was taught how
   56    to detect support of SSL by libcurl better.
   57 
   58  * http.emptyauth configuration is a way to allow an empty username to
   59    pass when attempting to authenticate using mechanisms like
   60    Kerberos.  We took an unspecified (NULL) username and sent ":"
   61    (i.e. no username, no password) to CURLOPT_USERPWD, but did not do
   62    the same when the username is explicitly set to an empty string.
   63 
   64  * "git clone" of a local repository can be done at the filesystem
   65    level, but the codepath did not check errors while copying and
   66    adjusting the file that lists alternate object stores.
   67 
   68  * Documentation for "git commit" was updated to clarify that "commit
   69    -p <paths>" adds to the current contents of the index to come up
   70    with what to commit.
   71 
   72  * A stray symbolic link in $GIT_DIR/refs/ directory could make name
   73    resolution loop forever, which has been corrected.
   74 
   75  * The "submodule.<name>.path" stored in .gitmodules is never copied
   76    to .git/config and such a key in .git/config has no meaning, but
   77    the documentation described it and submodule.<name>.url next to
   78    each other as if both belong to .git/config.  This has been fixed.
   79 
   80  * Recent git allows submodule.<name>.branch to use a special token
   81    "." instead of the branch name; the documentation has been updated
   82    to describe it.
   83 
   84  * In a worktree connected to a repository elsewhere, created via "git
   85    worktree", "git checkout" attempts to protect users from confusion
   86    by refusing to check out a branch that is already checked out in
   87    another worktree.  However, this also prevented checking out a
   88    branch, which is designated as the primary branch of a bare
   89    reopsitory, in a worktree that is connected to the bare
   90    repository.  The check has been corrected to allow it.
   91 
   92  * "git rebase" immediately after "git clone" failed to find the fork
   93    point from the upstream.
   94 
   95  * When fetching from a remote that has many tags that are irrelevant
   96    to branches we are following, we used to waste way too many cycles
   97    when checking if the object pointed at by a tag (that we are not
   98    going to fetch!) exists in our repository too carefully.
   99 
  100  * The Travis CI configuration we ship ran the tests with --verbose
  101    option but this risks non-TAP output that happens to be "ok" to be
  102    misinterpreted as TAP signalling a test that passed.  This resulted
  103    in unnecessary failure.  This has been corrected by introducing a
  104    new mode to run our tests in the test harness to send the verbose
  105    output separately to the log file.
  106 
  107  * Some AsciiDoc formatter mishandles a displayed illustration with
  108    tabs in it.  Adjust a few of them in merge-base documentation to
  109    work around them.
  110 
  111 Also contains minor documentation updates and code clean-ups.
