Git v188.8.131.52 Release Notes
Fixes since v184.108.40.206
Bash completion script (in contrib/) did not like a pattern that
begins with a dash to be passed to __git_ps1 helper function.
Adaptation of the bash completion script (in contrib/) for zsh
incorrectly listed all subcommands when “git <TAB><TAB>” was given
to ask for list of porcelain subcommands.
The build procedure for profile-directed optimized binary was not
working very well.
Some systems need to explicitly link -lcharset to get locale_charset().
t5541 ignored user-supplied port number used for HTTP server testing.
The error message emitted when we see an empty loose object was
not phrased correctly.
The code to ask for password did not fall back to the terminal
input when GIT_ASKPASS is set but does not work (e.g. lack of X
with GUI askpass helper).
We failed to give the true terminal width to any subcommand when
they are invoked with the pager, i.e. “git -p cmd”.
map_user() was not rewriting its output correctly, which resulted
in the user visible symptom that “git blame -e” sometimes showed
excess > at the end of email addresses.
“git checkout -b” did not allow switching out of an unborn branch.
When you have both …/foo and …/foo.git, “git clone …/foo” did not
favor the former but the latter.
“git commit” refused to create a commit when entries added with
“add -N” remained in the index, without telling Git what their content
in the next commit should be. We should have created the commit without
“git diff –stat” said “files”, “insertions”, and “deletions” even
when it is showing one “file”, one “insertion” or one “deletion”.
The output from “git diff –stat” for two paths that have the same
amount of changes showed graph bars of different length due to the
way we handled rounding errors.
“git grep” did not pay attention to -diff (hence -binary) attribute.
The transport programs (fetch, push, clone)ignored –no-progress
and showed progress when sending their output to a terminal.
Sometimes error status detected by a check in an earlier phase of
“git receive-pack” (the other end of “git push”) was lost by later
checks, resulting in false indication of success.
“git rev-list –verify” sometimes skipped verification depending on
the phase of the moon, which dates back to 1.7.8.x series.
Search box in “gitweb” did not accept non-ASCII characters correctly.
Search interface of “gitweb” did not show multiple matches in the same file
Also contains minor fixes and documentation updates.
