GIT v1.5.0.2 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.5.0.1
* Bugfixes
- Automated merge conflict handling when changes to symbolic
links conflicted were completely broken. The merge-resolve
strategy created a regular file with conflict markers in it
in place of the symbolic link. The default strategy,
merge-recursive was even more broken. It removed the path
that was pointed at by the symbolic link. Both of these
problems have been fixed.
- 'git diff maint master next' did not correctly give combined
diff across three trees.
- 'git fast-import' portability fix for Solaris.
- 'git show-ref --verify' without arguments did not error out
but segfaulted.
- 'git diff :tracked-file `pwd`/an-untracked-file' gave an extra
slashes after a/ and b/.
- 'git format-patch' produced too long filenames if the commit
message had too long line at the beginning.
- Running 'make all' and then without changing anything
running 'make install' still rebuilt some files. This
was inconvenient when building as yourself and then
installing as root (especially problematic when the source
directory is on NFS and root is mapped to nobody).
- 'git-rerere' failed to deal with two unconflicted paths that
sorted next to each other.
- 'git-rerere' attempted to open(2) a symlink and failed if
there was a conflict. Since a conflicting change to a
symlink would not benefit from rerere anyway, the command
now ignores conflicting changes to symlinks.
- 'git-repack' did not like to pass more than 64 arguments
internally to underlying 'rev-list' logic, which made it
impossible to repack after accumulating many (small) packs
in the repository.
- 'git-diff' to review the combined diff during a conflicted
merge were not reading the working tree version correctly
when changes to a symbolic link conflicted. It should have
read the data using readlink(2) but read from the regular
file the symbolic link pointed at.
- 'git-remote' did not like period in a remote's name.
* Documentation updates
- added and clarified core.bare, core.legacyheaders configurations.
- updated "git-clone --depth" documentation.
* Assorted git-gui fixes.
