GIT v1.6.5.1 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.6.5

  • An corrupt pack could make codepath to read objects into an
    infinite loop.

  • Download throughput display was always shown in KiB/s but on fast links
    it is more appropriate to show it in MiB/s.

  • “git grep -f filename” used uninitialized variable and segfaulted.

  • “git clone -b branch” gave a wrong commit object name to post-checkout
    hook.

  • “git pull” over http did not work on msys.

Other minor documentation updates are included.
