Git v184.108.40.206 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.7.8
In some codepaths (notably, checkout and merge), the ignore patterns
recorded in $GIT_DIR/info/exclude were not honored. They now are.
“git apply –check” did not error out when given an empty input
without any patch.
“git archive” mistakenly allowed remote clients to ask for commits
that are not at the tip of any ref.
“git checkout” and “git merge” treated in-tree .gitignore and exclude
file in $GIT_DIR/info/ directory inconsistently when deciding which
untracked files are ignored and expendable.
LF-to-CRLF streaming filter used when checking out a large-ish blob
fell into an infinite loop with a rare input.
The function header pattern for files with “diff=cpp” attribute did
not consider “type *funcname(type param1,…” as the beginning of a
The error message from “git diff” and “git status” when they fail
to inspect changes in submodules did not report which submodule they
had trouble with.
After fetching from a remote that has very long refname, the reporting
output could have corrupted by overrunning a static buffer.
“git pack-objects” avoids creating cyclic dependencies among deltas
when seeing a broken packfile that records the same object in both
the deflated form and as a delta.
Also contains minor fixes and documentation updates.
