Git v1.7.5.1 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.7.5

  • When an object “$tree:$path” does not exist, if $path does exist in the
    subtree of $tree that corresponds to the subdirectory the user is in,
    git now suggests using “$tree:./$path” in addition to the advice to use
    the full path from the root of the working tree.

  • The “–date=relative” output format used to say “X years, 12 months”
    when it should have said “X+1 years”.

  • The smart-HTTP transfer was broken in 1.7.5 when the client needs
    to issue a small POST (which uses content-length) and then a large
    POST (which uses chunked) back to back.

  • “git clean” used to fail on an empty directory that is not readable,
    even though rmdir(2) could remove such a directory. Now we attempt it
    as the last resort.

  • The “–dirstat” option of “diff” family of commands used to totally
    ignore a change that only rearranged lines within a file. Such a
    change now counts as at least a minimum but non zero change.

  • The “–dirstat” option of “diff” family of commands used to use the
    pathname in the original, instead of the pathname in the result,
    when renames are involved.

  • “git pack-object” did not take core.bigfilethreashold into account
    (unlike fast-import); now it does.

  • “git reflog” ignored options like “–format=..” on the command line.

  • “git stash apply” used to refuse to work if there was any change in
    the working tree, even when the change did not overlap with the change
    the stash recorded.

  • did not have that many stash entries.

  • An error message from “git send-email” to diagnose a broken SMTP
    connection configuration lacked a space between “hello=<smtp-domain>”
    and “port=<smtp-server-port>”.

And other minor fixes and documentation updates.
