Git v1.7.11.6 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.7.11.5
This consists primarily of documentation updates and low-impact code
clarification and bugfixes.
- "ciabot" script (in contrib/) has been updated with extensive
- The "--rebase" option to "git pull" can be abbreviated to "-r",
but we didn't document it.
- It was generally understood that "--long-option"s to many of our
subcommands can be abbreviated to the unique prefix, but it was not
easy to find it described for new readers of the documentation set.
- The "--topo-order", "--date-order" (and the lack of either means
the default order) options to "rev-list" and "log" family of
commands were poorly described in the documentation.
- Older parts of the documentation described as if having a regular
file in .git/refs/ hierarchy were the only way to have branches and
tags, which is not true for quite some time.
- A utility shell function test_seq has been added as a replacement
for the 'seq' utility found on some platforms.
- Fallback 'getpass' implementation made unportable use of stdio API.
- "git commit --amend" let the user edit the log message and then
died when the human-readable committer name was given
insufficiently by getpwent(3).
- The reflog entries left by "git rebase" and "git rebase -i" were
inconsistent (the interactive one gave an abbreviated object name).
- When the user exports a non-default IFS without HT, scripts that
rely on being able to parse "ls-files -s | while read a b c..."
started to fail. Protect them from such a misconfiguration.
- When "git push" triggered the automatic gc on the receiving end, a
message from "git prune" that said it was removing cruft leaked to
the standard output, breaking the communication protocol.
- "git diff" had a confusion between taking data from a path in the
working tree and taking data from an object that happens to have
name 0{40} recorded in a tree.
- "git send-email" did not unquote encoded words that appear on the
header correctly, and lost "_" from strings.
- When the user gives an argument that can be taken as both a
revision name and a pathname without disambiguating with "--", we
used to give a help message "Use '--' to separate". The message
has been clarified to show where that '--' goes on the command
- "gitweb" when used with PATH_INFO failed to notice directories with
SP (and other characters that need URL-style quoting) in them.
