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.
