libgit2 v0.15.0 “Das Wunderbar Release”

I am aware the codename is not gramatically correct in any language.

Check the COPYING file for the detailed terms on libgit2’s license. Check
the AUTHORS file for the full list of guilty parties.

As we slowly stabilize the API, we’ve dropped 1 function from the library,
and changed the signature of only 5 of them.

In this release of libgit2:

  • git_blob_rawsize
    : Now returns
    instead of int, allowing files >4GB in 64 bit systems.

    • git_commit_message_short
      : Please use
      to get the full message and decide which is the “short view” according to your needs (first line, first 80 chars…)

      + `git_commit_message_encoding`: Returns the encoding field of a commit
      message, if it exists.
  • git_commit_create
    : New argument
    , which adds a encoding field to the generated commit object.

    + `git_config_find_system`: Returns the path to the system's global config
    file (according to the Core Git standards).
  • git_config_get_XX
    : the
    types have been replaced by
    respectively, to make their meaning more obvious.

    + `git_indexer`: An interface to index Git Packfiles has been added in the
    `git2/indexer.h` header.
  • git_reflog_entry_XX
    : Reflog entries are now returned as
    git_oid *
    objects instead of hexadecimal OIDs.

    + `git_remote`: More fetch functionality has been added to the `git2/remote.h`
    functionality. Local, Smart HTTP and Git protocols are now supported.
    + `git_repository_head`: Returns the HEAD of the repository.
    	+ `git_repository_config_autoload`: Opens the configuration file of a
    	including the user's and the system's global config files, if they
    can be found.
  • git_signature_now
    : Now returns an error code; the signature is stored by reference.
