Git 2.25.1 Release Notes
Fixes since v2.25
* "git commit" gives output similar to "git status" when there is
nothing to commit, but without honoring the advise.statusHints
configuration variable, which has been corrected.
* has_object_file() said "no" given an object registered to the
system via pretend_object_file(), making it inconsistent with
read_object_file(), causing lazy fetch to attempt fetching an
empty tree from promisor remotes.
* The code that tries to skip over the entries for the paths in a
single directory using the cache-tree was not careful enough
against corrupt index file.
* Complete an update to tutorial that encourages "git switch" over
"git checkout" that was done only half-way.
* Reduce unnecessary round-trip when running "ls-remote" over the
stateless RPC mechanism.
* "git restore --staged" did not correctly update the cache-tree
structure, resulting in bogus trees to be written afterwards, which
has been corrected.
* The code recently added to move to the entry beyond the ones in the
same directory in the index in the sparse-cone mode did not count
the number of entries to skip over incorrectly, which has been
* Work around test breakages caused by custom regex engine used in
libasan, when address sanitizer is used with more recent versions
of gcc and clang.
* "git fetch --refmap=" option has got a better documentation.
* Corner case bugs in "git clean" that stems from a (necessarily for
performance reasons) awkward calling convention in the directory
enumeration API has been corrected.
* "git grep --no-index" should not get affected by the contents of
the .gitmodules file but when "--recurse-submodules" is given or
the "submodule.recurse" variable is set, it did. Now these
settings are ignored in the "--no-index" mode.
* Technical details of the bundle format has been documented.
* Unhelpful warning messages during documentation build have been
Also contains various documentation updates, code clean-ups and minor fixups.
