Git v1.7.8.5 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.7.8.4

  • Dependency on our thread-utils.h header file was missing for
    objects that depend on it in the Makefile.

  • “git am” when fed an empty file did not correctly finish reading it
    when it attempts to guess the input format.

  • “git grep -P” (when PCRE is enabled in the build) did not match the
    beginning and the end of the line correctly with ^ and $.

  • “git rebase -m” tried to run “git notes copy” needlessly when
    nothing was rewritten.

Also contains minor fixes and documentation updates.

Changes since v1.7.8.4 are as follows:

Andrew Wong (1):
      rebase -m: only call "notes copy" when rewritten exists and is non-empty

Dmitry V. Levin (1):
      Makefile: add thread-utils.h to LIB_H

Jeff King (1):
      imap-send: remove dead code

Jim Meyering (1):
      am: don't infloop for an empty input file

Junio C Hamano (2):
      Git 1.7.6.6
      Git 1.7.8.5

Michał Kiedrowicz (1):
      grep -P: Fix matching ^ and $
