Git 1.7.6.3

The latest maintenance release Git 1.7.6.3 is available but unfortunately
not at the usual places.

The release tarball is found at:

http://code.google.com/p/git-core/downloads/list

and its SHA-1 checksum is:

7264c0b0d97cb6a70447ba3b4b6fa488810d8115 git-1.7.6.3.tar.gz

Also the following public repositories all have a copy of the v1.7.6.3
tag and the maint branch that the tag points at:

url = git://repo.or.cz/alt-git.git
url = https://code.google.com/p/git-core/
url = git://git.sourceforge.jp/gitroot/git-core/git.git
url = git://git-core.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/git-core/git-core

Git v1.7.6.3 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.7.6.2

  • “git -c var=value subcmd” misparsed the custom configuration when
    value contained an equal sign.

  • “git fetch” had a major performance regression, wasting many
    needless cycles in a repository where there is no submodules
    present. This was especially bad, when there were many refs.

  • “git reflog $refname” did not default to the “show” subcommand as
    the documentation advertised the command to do.

  • “git reset” did not leave meaningful log message in the reflog.

  • “git status –ignored” did not show ignored items when there is no
    untracked items.

  • “git tag –contains $commit” was unnecessarily inefficient.

Also contains minor fixes and documentation updates.
