GIT v1.6.0.3 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.6.0.2
* "git archive --format=zip" did not honor core.autocrlf while
--format=tar did.
* Continuing "git rebase -i" was very confused when the user left modified
files in the working tree while resolving conflicts.
* Continuing "git rebase -i" was also very confused when the user left
some staged changes in the index after "edit".
* "git rebase -i" now honors the pre-rebase hook, just like the
other rebase implementations "git rebase" and "git rebase -m".
* "git rebase -i" incorrectly aborted when there is no commit to replay.
* Behaviour of "git diff --quiet" was inconsistent with "diff --exit-code"
with the output redirected to /dev/null.
* "git diff --no-index" on binary files no longer outputs a bogus
"diff --git" header line.
* "git diff" hunk header patterns with multiple elements separated by LF
were not used correctly.
* Hunk headers in "git diff" default to using extended regular
expressions, fixing some of the internal patterns on non-GNU
* New config "diff.*.xfuncname" exposes extended regular expressions
for user specified hunk header patterns.
* "git gc" when ejecting otherwise unreachable objects from packfiles into
loose form leaked memory.
* "git index-pack" was recently broken and mishandled objects added by
thin-pack completion processing under memory pressure.
* "git index-pack" was recently broken and misbehaved when run from inside
.git/objects/pack/ directory.
* "git stash apply sash@{1}" was fixed to error out. Prior versions
would have applied stash@{0} incorrectly.
* "git stash apply" now offers a better suggestion on how to continue
if the working tree is currently dirty.
* "git for-each-ref --format=%(subject)" fixed for commits with no
no newline in the message body.
* "git remote" fixed to protect printf from user input.
* "git remote show -v" now displays all URLs of a remote.
* "git checkout -b branch" was confused when branch already existed.
* "git checkout -q" once again suppresses the locally modified file list.
* "git clone -q", "git fetch -q" asks remote side to not send
progress messages, actually making their output quiet.
* Cross-directory renames are no longer used when creating packs. This
allows more graceful behavior on filesystems like sshfs.
* Stale temporary files under $GIT_DIR/objects/pack are now cleaned up
automatically by "git prune".
* "git merge" once again removes directories after the last file has
been removed from it during the merge.
* "git merge" did not allocate enough memory for the structure itself when
enumerating the parents of the resulting commit.
* "git blame -C -C" no longer segfaults while trying to pass blame if
it encounters a submodule reference.
* "git rm" incorrectly claimed that you have local modifications when a
path was merely stat-dirty.
* "git svn" fixed to display an error message when 'set-tree' failed,
instead of a Perl compile error.
* "git submodule" fixed to handle checking out a different commit
than HEAD after initializing the submodule.
* The "git commit" error message when there are still unmerged
files present was clarified to match "git write-tree".
* "git init" was confused when core.bare or core.sharedRepository are set
in system or user global configuration file by mistake. When --bare or
--shared is given from the command line, these now override such
settings made outside the repositories.
* Some segfaults due to uncaught NULL pointers were fixed in multiple
tools such as apply, reset, update-index.
* Solaris builds now default to OLD_ICONV=1 to avoid compile warnings;
Solaris 8 does not define NEEDS_LIBICONV by default.
* "" tests relied on unnecessarily more recent version of Perl.
* "gitweb" triggered undef warning on commits without log messages.
* "gitweb" triggered undef warnings on missing trees.
* "gitweb" now removes PATH_INFO from its URLs so users don't have
to manually set the URL in the gitweb configuration.
* Bash completion removed support for legacy "git-fetch", "git-push"
and "git-pull" as these are no longer installed. Dashless form
("git fetch") is still however supported.
Many other documentation updates.
