GIT v1.5.4.2 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.5.4
* The configuration parser was not prepared to see string
valued variables misspelled as boolean and segfaulted.
* Temporary files left behind due to interrupted object
transfers were not cleaned up with "git prune".
* "git config --unset" was confused when the unset variables
were spelled with continuation lines in the config file.
* The merge message detection in "git cvsimport" did not catch
a message that began with "Merge...".
* "git status" suggests "git rm --cached" for unstaging the
earlier "git add" before the initial commit.
* "git status" output was incorrect during a partial commit.
* "git bisect" refused to start when the HEAD was detached.
* "git bisect" allowed a wildcard character in the commit
message expanded while writing its log file.
* Manual pages were not formatted correctly with docbook xsl
1.72; added a workaround.
* "git-commit -C $tag" used to work but rewrite in C done in
1.5.4 broke it. This was fixed in
* An entry in the .gitattributes file that names a pattern in a
subdirectory of the directory it is in did not match
correctly (e.g. pattern "b/*.c" in "a/.gitattributes" should
match "a/b/foo.c" but it didn't). This was fixed in
* Customized color specification was parsed incorrectly when
numeric color values are used. This was fixed in
* http transport misbehaved when linked with curl-gnutls.
