Git v1.8.4.5 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.8.4.4

  • Recent update to remote-hg that attempted to make it work better
    with non ASCII pathnames fed Unicode strings to the underlying Hg
    API, which was wrong.

  • “git submodule init” copied “submodule.$name.update” settings from
    .gitmodules to .git/config without making sure if the suggested
    value was sensible.

Changes since v1.8.4.4 are as follows:

Junio C Hamano (2):
      submodule: do not copy unknown update mode from .gitmodules

Richard Hansen (1):
      remote-hg: don't decode UTF-8 paths into Unicode objects
