GIT v1.5.3.5 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.5.3.4
* Comes with git-gui 0.8.4.
* "git-config" silently ignored options after --list; now it will
error out with a usage message.
* "git-config --file" failed if the argument used a relative path
as it changed directories before opening the file.
* "git-config --file" now displays a proper error message if it
cannot read the file specified on the command line.
* "git-config", "git-diff", "git-apply" failed if run from a
subdirectory with relative GIT_DIR and GIT_WORK_TREE set.
* "git-blame" crashed if run during a merge conflict.
* "git-add -i" did not handle single line hunks correctly.
* "git-rebase -i" and "git-stash apply" failed if external diff
drivers were used for one or more files in a commit. They now
avoid calling the external diff drivers.
* "git-log --follow" did not work unless diff generation (e.g. -p)
was also requested.
* "git-log --follow -B" did not work at all. Fixed.
* "git-log -M -B" did not correctly handle cases of very large files
being renamed and replaced by very small files in the same commit.
* "git-log" printed extra newlines between commits when a diff
was generated internally (e.g. -S or --follow) but not displayed.
* "git-push" error message is more helpful when pushing to a
repository with no matching refs and none specified.
* "git-push" now respects + (force push) on wildcard refspecs,
matching the behavior of git-fetch.
* "git-filter-branch" now updates the working directory when it
has finished filtering the current branch.
* "git-instaweb" no longer fails on Mac OS X.
* "git-cvsexportcommit" didn't always create new parent directories
before trying to create new child directories. Fixed.
* "git-fetch" printed a scary (but bogus) error message while
fetching a tag that pointed to a tree or blob. The error did
not impact correctness, only user perception. The bogus error
is no longer printed.
* "git-ls-files --ignored" did not properly descend into non-ignored
directories that themselves contained ignored files if d_type
was not supported by the filesystem. This bug impacted systems
such as AFS. Fixed.
* Git segfaulted when reading an invalid .gitattributes file. Fixed.
* post-receive-email example hook was fixed for non-fast-forward
* Documentation updates for supported (but previously undocumented)
options of "git-archive" and "git-reflog".
* "make clean" no longer deletes the configure script that ships
with the git tarball, making multiple architecture builds easier.
* "git-remote show origin" spewed a warning message from Perl
when no remote is defined for the current branch via
branch.<name>.remote configuration settings.
* Building with NO_PERL_MAKEMAKER excessively rebuilt contents
of perl/ subdirectory by rewriting perl.mak.
* http.sslVerify configuration settings were not used in scripted
* "git-add" leaked a bit of memory while scanning for files to add.
* A few workarounds to squelch false warnings from recent gcc have
been added.
* "git-send-pack $remote frotz" segfaulted when there is nothing
named 'frotz' on the local end.
* "git-rebase --interactive" did not handle its "--strategy" option
