Git v220.127.116.11 Release Notes
Fixes since v18.104.22.168
On Cygwin, the platform pread(2) is not thread safe, just like our
own compat/ emulation, and cannot be used in the index-pack
program. Makefile variable NO_THREAD_SAFE_PREAD can be defined to
avoid use of this function in a threaded program.
“git add” allows adding a regular file to the path where a
submodule used to exist, but “git update-index” does not allow an
equivalent operation to Porcelain writers.
“git archive” incorrectly computed the header checksum; the symptom
was observed only when using pathnames with hi-bit set.
“git blame” did not try to make sure that the abbreviated commit
object names in its output are unique.
Running “git bundle verify” on a bundle that records a complete
history said “it requires these 0 commits”.
“git clone –single-branch” to clone a single branch did not limit
the cloning to the specified branch.
“git diff –no-index” did not correctly handle relative paths and
did not correctly give exit codes when run under “–quiet” option.
“git diff –no-index” did not work with pagers correctly.
“git diff COPYING HEAD:COPYING” gave a nonsense error message that
claimed that the treeish HEAD did not have COPYING in it.
When “git log” gets “–simplify-merges/by-decoration” together with
“–first-parent”, the combination of these options makes the
simplification logic to use in-core commit objects that haven’t
been examined for relevance, either producing incorrect result or
taking too long to produce any output. Teach the simplification
logic to ignore commits that the first-parent traversal logic
ignored when both are in effect to work around the issue.
“git ls-files –exclude=t -i” did not consider anything under t/ as
excluded, as it did not pay attention to exclusion of leading paths
while walking the index. Other two users of excluded() are also
“git request-pull $url dev” when the tip of “dev” branch was tagged
with “ext4-for-linus” used the contents from the tag in the output
but still asked the “dev” branch to be pulled, not the tag.
Also contains minor typofixes and documentation updates.
Changes since v22.214.171.124 are as follows:
Carlos Martín Nieto (2): Documentation: --no-walk is no-op if range is specified git-cherry-pick.txt: clarify the use of revision range notation Heiko Voigt (1): update-index: allow overwriting existing submodule index entries Jeff King (3): fix pager.diff with diff --no-index do not run pager with diff --no-index --quiet diff: handle relative paths in no-index Junio C Hamano (15): request-pull: really favor a matching tag ls-files -i: pay attention to exclusion of leading paths ls-files -i: micro-optimize path_excluded() tweak "bundle verify" of a complete history path_excluded(): update API to less cache-entry centric builtin/add.c: use path_excluded() unpack-trees.c: use path_excluded() in check_ok_to_remove() dir.c: make excluded() file scope static revision: "simplify" options imply topo-order sort revision: note the lack of free() in simplify_merges() archive: ustar header checksum is computed unsigned revision: ignore side parents while running simplify-merges index-pack: Disable threading on cygwin blame: compute abbreviation width that ensures uniqueness Git 126.96.36.199 Leila Muhtasib (1): Documentation: Fix misspellings Matthieu Moy (2): sha1_name: do not trigger detailed diagnosis for file arguments verify_filename(): ask the caller to chose the kind of diagnosis Michał Górny (1): git-submodule.sh: fix filename in comment. Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy (1): clone: fix ref selection in --single-branch --branch=xxx Peter Krefting (1): Update Swedish translation (1066t0f0u) Thomas Badie (1): git-add--interactive.perl: Remove two unused variables Tim Henigan (1): diff-no-index: exit(1) if 'diff --quiet <repo file> <external file>' finds changes
