GIT v1.6.2.4 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.6.2.3
* The configuration parser had a buffer overflow while parsing an overlong
* pruning reflog entries that are unreachable from the tip of the ref
during "git reflog prune" (hence "git gc") was very inefficient.
* "git-add -p" lacked a way to say "q"uit to refuse staging any hunks for
the remaining paths. You had to say "d" and then ^C.
* "git-checkout <tree-ish> <submodule>" did not update the index entry at
the named path; it now does.
* "git-fast-export" choked when seeing a tag that does not point at commit.
* "git init" segfaulted when given an overlong template location via
the --template= option.
* "git-ls-tree" and "git-diff-tree" used a pathspec correctly when
deciding to descend into a subdirectory but they did not match the
individual paths correctly. This caused pathspecs "abc/d ab" to match
"abc/0" ("abc/d" made them decide to descend into the directory "abc/",
and then "ab" incorrectly matched "abc/0" when it shouldn't).
* "git-merge-recursive" was broken when a submodule entry was involved in
a criss-cross merge situation.
Many small documentation updates are included as well.
