Git v1.7.0.4 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.7.0.3

  • Optimized ntohl/htonl on big-endian machines were broken.

  • Color values given to “color.<cmd>.<slot>” configuration can now have
    more than one attributes (e.g. “bold ul”).

  • “git add -u nonexistent-path” did not complain.

  • “git apply –whitespace=fix” didn’t work well when an early patch in
    a patch series adds trailing blank lines and a later one depended on
    such a block of blank lines at the end.

  • “git fast-export” didn’t check error status and stop when marks file
    cannot be opened.

  • “git format-patch –ignore-if-in-upstream” gave unwarranted errors
    when the range was empty, instead of silently finishing.

  • “git remote prune” did not detect remote tracking refs that became
    dangling correctly.

And other minor fixes and documentation updates.
