Git v1.7.3.3 Release Notes

In addition to the usual fixes, this release also includes support for
the new “add.ignoreErrors” name given to the existing “add.ignore-errors”
configuration variable.

The next version, Git 1.7.4, and future versions, will support both
old and incorrect name and the new corrected name, but without this
backport, users who want to use the new name “add.ignoreErrors” in
their repositories cannot use older versions of Git.

Fixes since v1.7.3.2

  • “git apply” segfaulted when a bogus input is fed to it.

  • Running “git cherry-pick –ff” on a root commit segfaulted.

  • “diff”, “blame” and friends incorrectly applied textconv filters to

  • Highlighting of whitespace breakage in “diff” output was showing
    incorrect amount of whitespaces when blank-at-eol is set and the line
    consisted only of whitespaces and a TAB.

  • “diff” was overly inefficient when trying to find the line to use for
    the function header (i.e. equivalent to –show-c-function of GNU diff).

  • “git imap-send” depends on libcrypto but our build rule relied on the
    linker to implicitly link it via libssl, which was wrong.

  • “git merge-file” can be called from within a subdirectory now.

  • “git repack -f” expanded and recompressed non-delta objects in the
    existing pack, which was wasteful. Use new “-F” option if you really
    want to (e.g. when changing the pack.compression level).

  • “git rev-list –format=”…%x00…” incorrectly chopped its output
    at NUL.

  • “git send-email” did not correctly remove duplicate mail addresses from
    the Cc: header that appear on the To: header.

  • The completion script (in contrib/completion) ignored lightweight tags
    in __git_ps1().

  • “git-blame” mode (in contrib/emacs) didn’t say (require ‘format-spec)
    even though it depends on it; it didn’t work with Emacs 22 or older
    unless Gnus is used.

  • “git-p4” (in contrib/) did not correctly handle deleted files.

Other minor fixes and documentation updates are also included.
