Git v1.7.6.4 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.7.6.3

  • The error reporting logic of “git am” when the command is fed a file
    whose mail-storage format is unknown was fixed.

  • “git branch –set-upstream @{-1} foo” did not expand @{-1} correctly.

  • “git check-ref-format –print” used to parrot a candidate string that
    began with a slash (e.g. /refs/heads/master) without stripping it, to make
    the result a suitably normalized string the caller can append to “$GIT_DIR/”.

  • “git clone” failed to clone locally from a “.git” file that itself
    is not a directory but is a pointer to one.

  • “git clone” from a local repository that borrows from another
    object store using a relative path in its objects/info/alternates
    file did not adjust the alternates in the resulting repository.

  • “git describe –dirty” did not refresh the index before checking the
    state of the working tree files.

  • “git ls-files ../$path” that is run from a subdirectory reported errors
    incorrectly when there is no such path that matches the given pathspec.

  • “git mergetool” could loop forever prompting when nothing can be read
    from the standard input.

Also contains minor fixes and documentation updates.
