Release 1.5.0
Backward-incompatible change
The name of classes for environment was misnamed as `*Environement`.
It is now `*Environment`.
New features
* A Thread-Index header is now added to each email sent (except for
combined emails where it would not make sense), so that MS Outlook
properly groups messages by threads even though they have a
different subject line. Unfortunately, even adding this header the
threading still seems to be unreliable, but it is unclear whether
this is an issue on our side or on MS Outlook's side (see discussion
* A new variable multimailhook.ExcludeMergeRevisions was added to send
notification emails only for non-merge commits.
* For gitolite environment, it is now possible to specify the mail map
in a separate file in addition to gitolite.conf, using the variable
Internal changes
* The testsuite now uses GIT_PRINT_SHA1_ELLIPSIS where needed for
compatibility with recent Git versions. Only tests are affected.
* We don't try to install pyflakes in the continuous integration job
for old Python versions where it's no longer available.
* Stop using the deprecated cgi.escape in Python 3.
* New flake8 warnings have been fixed.
* Python 3.6 is now tested against on Travis-CI.
* A bunch of warnings have been fixed.
Bug fixes
* SMTPMailer logs in only once now. It used to re-login for each email
sent which triggered errors for some SMTP servers.
* migrate-mailhook-config was broken by internal refactoring, it
should now work again.
This version was tested with Python 2.6 to 3.7. It was tested with Git, 2.15.1 and
Release 1.4.0
New features to troubleshoot a git-multimail installation
* One can now perform a basic check of git-multimail's setup by
running the hook with the environment variable
GIT_MULTIMAIL_CHECK_SETUP set to a non-empty string. See
doc/troubleshooting.rst for details.
* A new log files system was added. See the multimailhook.logFile,
multimailhook.errorLogFile and multimailhook.debugLogFile variables.
* can now be made more verbose using
* A new option --check-ref-filter is now available to help debugging
the refFilter* options.
Formatting emails
* Formatting of emails was made slightly more compact, to reduce the
odds of having long subject lines truncated or wrapped in short list
of commits.
* multimailhook.emailPrefix may now use the '%(repo_shortname)s'
placeholder for the repository's short name.
* A new option multimailhook.subjectMaxLength is available to truncate
overly long subject lines.
Bug fixes and minor changes
* Options refFilterDoSendRegex and refFilterDontSendRegex were
essentially broken. They should work now.
* The behavior when both refFilter{Do,Dont}SendRegex and
refFilter{Exclusion,Inclusion}Regex are set have been slightly
changed. Exclusion/Inclusion is now strictly stronger than
* The management of precedence when a setting can be computed in
multiple ways has been considerably refactored and modified.
multimailhook.from and multimailhook.reponame now have precedence
over the environment-specific settings ($GL_REPO/$GL_USER for
gitolite, --stash-user/repo for Stash, --submitter/--project for
* The coverage of the testsuite has been considerably improved. All
configuration variables now appear at least once in the testsuite.
This version was tested with Python 2.6 to 3.5. It also mostly works
with Python 2.4, but there is one known breakage in the testsuite
related to non-ascii characters. It was tested with Git,, 2.1.4, and 2.10.0.rc0.1.g07c9292.
Release 1.3.1 (bugfix-only release)
* Generate links to commits in combined emails (it was done only for
commit emails in 1.3.0).
* Fix broken links on PyPi.
Release 1.3.0
* New options multimailhook.htmlInIntro and multimailhook.htmlInFooter
now allow using HTML in the introduction and footer of emails (e.g.
for a more pleasant formatting or to insert a link to the commit on
a web interface).
* A new option multimailhook.commitBrowseURL gives a simpler (and less
flexible) way to add a link to a web interface for commit emails
than multimailhook.htmlInIntro and multimailhook.htmlInFooter.
* A new public function config.add_config_parameters was added to
allow custom hooks to set specific Git configuration variables
without modifying the configuration files. See an example in
* Error handling for SMTP has been improved (we used to print Python
backtraces for legitimate errors).
* The SMTP mailer can now check TLS certificates when the newly added
configuration variable multimailhook.smtpCACerts.
* Python 3 portability has been improved.
* The documentation's formatting has been improved.
* The testsuite has been improved (we now use pyflakes to check for
errors in the code).
This version has been tested with Python 2.4 and 2.6 to 3.5, and Git
v1.7.10-406-gdc801e7, 2.1.4 and
No change since 1.3 RC1.
Release 1.2.0
* It is now possible to exclude some refs (e.g. exclude some branches
or tags). See refFilterDoSendRegex, refFilterDontSendRegex,
refFilterInclusionRegex and refFilterExclusionRegex.
* New commitEmailFormat option which can be set to "html" to generate
simple colorized diffs using HTML for the commit emails.
* git-multimail can now be ran as a Gerrit ref-updated hook, or from
Atlassian BitBucket Server (formerly known as Atlassian Stash).
* The From: field is now more customizeable. It can be set
independently for refchange emails and commit emails (see
fromCommit, fromRefChange). The special values pusher and author can
be used in these configuration variable.
* A new command-line option, --version, was added. The version is also
available in the X-Git-Multimail-Version header of sent emails.
* Set X-Git-NotificationType header to differentiate the various types
of notifications. Current values are: diff, ref_changed_plus_diff,
* Preliminary support for Python 3. The testsuite passes with Python 3,
but it has not received as much testing as the Python 2 version yet.
* Several encoding-related fixes. UTF-8 characters work in more
situations (but non-ascii characters in email address are still not
* The testsuite and its documentation has been greatly improved.
Plus all the bugfixes from version 1.1.1.
This version has been tested with Python 2.4 and 2.6 to 3.5, and Git
v1.7.10-406-gdc801e7, git- and 2.6.0. Git versions prior to
v1.7.10-406-gdc801e7 probably work, but cannot run the testsuite
Release 1.1.1 (bugfix-only release)
* The SMTP mailer was not working with Python 2.4.
Release 1.1.0
* When a single commit is pushed, omit the reference changed email.
Set multimailhook.combineWhenSingleCommit to false to disable this
new feature.
* In gitolite environments, the pusher's email address can be used as
the From address by creating a specially formatted comment block in
gitolite.conf (see multimailhook.from in README).
* Support for SMTP authentication and SSL/TLS encryption was added,
see smtpUser, smtpPass, smtpEncryption in README.
* A new option scanCommitForCc was added to allow git-multimail to
search the commit message for 'Cc: ...' lines, and add the
corresponding emails in Cc.
* If $USER is not set, use the variable $USERNAME. This is needed on
Windows platform to recognize the pusher.
* The emailPrefix variable can now be set to an empty string to remove
the prefix.
* A short tutorial was added in doc/gitolite.rst to set up
git-multimail with gitolite.
* The post-receive file was renamed to post-receive.example. It has
always been an example (the standard way to call git-multimail is to
call, but it was unclear to many users.
* A new refchangeShowGraph option was added to make it possible to
include both a graph and a log in the summary emails. The options
to control the graph formatting can be set via the new graphOpts
* New option --force-send was added to disable new commit detection
for update hook. One use-case is to run after
running "git fetch" to send emails about commits that have just been
fetched (the detection of new commits was unreliable in this mode).
* The testing infrastructure was considerably improved (continuous
integration with travis-ci, automatic check of PEP8 and RST syntax,
many improvements to the test scripts).
This version has been tested with Python 2.4 to 2.7, and Git 1.7.1 to
Release 1.0.0
* Fix encoding of non-ASCII email addresses in email headers.
* Fix backwards-compatibility bugs for older Python 2.x versions.
* Fix a backwards-compatibility bug for Git 1.7.1.
* Add an option commitDiffOpts to customize logs for revisions.
* Pass "-oi" to sendmail by default to prevent premature termination
on a line containing only ".".
* Stagger email "Date:" values in an attempt to help mail clients
thread the emails in the right order.
* If a mailing list setting is missing, just skip sending the
corresponding email (with a warning) instead of failing.
* Add a X-Git-Host header that can be used for email filtering.
* Allow the sender's fully-qualified domain name to be configured.
* Minor documentation improvements.
* Add this CHANGES file.
Release 0.9.0
* Initial release.
