Git v188.8.131.52 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.8.0
The configuration parser had an unnecessary hardcoded limit on
variable names that was not checked consistently.
The “say” function in the test scaffolding incorrectly allowed
“echo” to interpret “\a” as if it were a C-string asking for a
“git mergetool” feeds /dev/null as a common ancestor when dealing
with an add/add conflict, but p4merge backend cannot handle
it. Work it around by passing a temporary empty file.
“git log -F -E –grep=<ere>” failed to use the given <ere>
pattern as extended regular expression, and instead looked for the
“git grep -e pattern <tree>” asked the attribute system to read
“<tree>:.gitattributes” file in the working tree, which was
A symbolic ref refs/heads/SYM was not correctly removed with “git
branch -d SYM”; the command removed the ref pointed by SYM
Earlier we fixed documentation to hyphenate “remote-tracking branch”
to clarify that these are not a remote entity, but unhyphenated
spelling snuck in to a few places since then.
“git pull –rebase” run while the HEAD is detached tried to find
the upstream branch of the detached HEAD (which by definition
does not exist) and emitted unnecessary error messages.
The refs/replace hierarchy was not mentioned in the
Sometimes curl_multi_timeout() function suggested a wrong timeout
value when there is no file descriptors to wait on and the http
transport ended up sleeping for minutes in select(2) system call.
A workaround has been added for this.
Various rfc2047 quoting issues around a non-ASCII name on the
From: line in the output from format-patch have been corrected.
“git diff -G<pattern>” did not honor textconv filter when looking
Bash completion script (in contrib/) did not correctly complete a
lazy “git checkout $name_of_remote_tracking_branch_that_is_unique”
RSS feed from “gitweb” had a xss hole in its title output.
“git config –path $key” segfaulted on “[section] key” (a boolean
“true” spelled without “=”, not “[section] key = true”).
“git checkout -b foo” while on an unborn branch did not say
“Switched to a new branch foo” like other cases.
Also contains other minor fixes and documentation updates.
