GIT v1.6.0.2 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.6.0.1
* Installation on platforms that needs .exe suffix to git-* programs were
broken in
* Installation on filesystems without symbolic links support did not
work well.
* In-tree documentations and test scripts now use "git foo" form to set a
better example, instead of the "git-foo" form (which is an acceptable
form if you have "PATH=$(git --exec-path):$PATH" in your script)
* Many commands did not use the correct working tree location when used
with GIT_WORK_TREE environment settings.
* Some systems need to use compatibility fnmatch and regex libraries
independent from each other; the compat/ area has been reorganized to
allow this.
* "git apply --unidiff-zero" incorrectly applied a -U0 patch that inserts
a new line before the second line.
* "git blame -c" did not exactly work like "git annotate" when range
boundaries are involved.
* "git checkout file" when file is still unmerged checked out contents from
a random high order stage, which was confusing.
* "git clone $there $here/" with extra trailing slashes after explicit
local directory name $here did not work as expected.
* "git diff" on tracked contents with CRLF line endings did not drive "less"
intelligently when showing added or removed lines.
* "git diff --dirstat -M" did not add changes in subdirectories up
correctly for renamed paths.
* "git diff --cumulative" did not imply "--dirstat".
* "git for-each-ref refs/heads/" did not work as expected.
* "git gui" allowed users to feed patch without any context to be applied.
* "git gui" botched parsing "diff" output when a line that begins with two
dashes and a space gets removed or a line that begins with two pluses
and a space gets added.
* "git gui" translation updates and i18n fixes.
* "git index-pack" is more careful against disk corruption while completing
a thin pack.
* "git log -i --grep=pattern" did not ignore case; neither "git log -E
--grep=pattern" triggered extended regexp.
* "git log --pretty="%ad" --date=short" did not use short format when
showing the timestamp.
* "git log --author=author" match incorrectly matched with the
timestamp part of "author " line in commit objects.
* "git log -F --author=author" did not work at all.
* Build procedure for "git shell" that used stub versions of some
functions and globals was not understood by linkers on some platforms.
* "git stash" was fooled by a stat-dirty but otherwise unmodified paths
and refused to work until the user refreshed the index.
* "git svn" was broken on Perl before 5.8 with recent fixes to reduce
use of temporary files.
* "git verify-pack -v" did not work correctly when given more than one
Also contains many documentation updates.
