GIT v1.5.4.5 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.5.4.4
* "git fetch there" when the URL information came from the Cogito style
branches/there file did not update refs/heads/there (regression in
* Bogus refspec configuration such as "remote.there.fetch = =" were not
detected as errors (regression in 1.5.4).
* You couldn't specify a custom editor whose path contains a whitespace
via GIT_EDITOR (and core.editor).
* The subdirectory filter to "git filter-branch" mishandled a history
where the subdirectory becomes empty and then later becomes non-empty.
* "git shortlog" gave an empty line if the original commit message was
malformed (e.g. a botched import from foreign SCM). Now it finds the
first non-empty line and uses it for better information.
* When the user fails to give a revision parameter to "git svn", an error
from the Perl interpreter was issued because the script lacked proper
error checking.
* After "git rebase" stopped due to conflicts, if the user played with
"git reset" and friends, "git rebase --abort" failed to go back to the
correct commit.
* Additional work trees prepared with git-new-workdir (in contrib/) did
not share git-svn metadata directory .git/svn with the original.
* "git-merge-recursive" did not mark addition of the same path with
different filemodes correctly as a conflict.
* "gitweb" gave malformed URL when pathinfo stype paths are in use.
* "-n" stands for "--no-tags" again for "git fetch".
* "git format-patch" did not detect the need to add 8-bit MIME header
when the user used format.header configuration.
* "rev~" revision specifier used to mean "rev", which was inconsistent
with how "rev^" worked. Now "rev~" is the same as "rev~1" (hence it
also is the same as "rev^1"), and "rev~0" is the same as "rev^0"
(i.e. it has to be a commit).
* "git quiltimport" did not grok empty lines, lines in "file -pNNN"
format to specify the prefix levels and lines with trailing comments.
* "git rebase -m" triggered pre-commit verification, which made
"rebase --continue" impossible.
As usual, it also comes with many documentation fixes and clarifications.
