GIT v1.6.0.5 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.6.0.4
* "git checkout" used to crash when your HEAD was pointing at a deleted
* "git checkout" from an un-checked-out state did not allow switching out
of the current branch.
* "git diff" always allowed GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF and --no-ext-diff was no-op for
the command.
* Giving 3 or more tree-ish to "git diff" is supposed to show the combined
diff from second and subsequent trees to the first one, but the order was
screwed up.
* "git fast-export" did not export all tags.
* "git ls-files --with-tree=<tree>" did not work with options other
than -c, most notably with -m.
* "git pack-objects" did not make its best effort to honor --max-pack-size
option when a single first object already busted the given limit and
placed many objects in a single pack.
* "git-p4" fast import frontend was too eager to trigger its keyword expansion
logic, even on a keyword-looking string that does not have closing '$' on the
same line.
* "git push $there" when the remote $there is defined in $GIT_DIR/branches/$there
behaves more like what cg-push from Cogito used to work.
* when giving up resolving a conflicted merge, "git reset --hard" failed
to remove new paths from the working tree.
* "git tag" did not complain when given mutually incompatible set of options.
* The message constructed in the internal editor was discarded when "git
tag -s" failed to sign the message, which was often caused by the user
not configuring GPG correctly.
* "make check" cannot be run without sparse; people may have meant to say
"make test" instead, so suggest that.
* Internal diff machinery had a corner case performance bug that choked on
a large file with many repeated contents.
* "git repack" used to grab objects out of packs marked with .keep
into a new pack.
* Many unsafe call to sprintf() style varargs functions are corrected.
* Also contains quite a few documentation updates.
