Git v1.7.5.3 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.7.5.2

  • The bash completion scripts should correctly work using zsh’s bash
    completion emulation layer now.

  • Setting $(prefix) in config.mak did not affect where etc/gitconfig
    file is read from, even though passing it from the command line of
    $(MAKE) did.

  • The logic to handle “&” (expand to UNIX username) in GECOS field
    miscounted the length of the name it formatted.

  • “git cherry-pick -s resolve” failed to cherry-pick a root commit.

  • “git diff –word-diff” misbehaved when diff.suppress-blank-empty was
    in effect.

  • “git log –stdin path” with an input that has additional pathspec
    used to corrupt memory.

  • “git send-pack” (hence “git push”) over smalt-HTTP protocol could
    deadlock when the client side pack-object died early.

  • Compressed tarball gitweb generates used to be made with the timestamp
    of the tarball generation; this was bad because snapshot from the same
    tree should result in a same tarball.

And other minor fixes and documentation updates.
