Git v1.7.11.5 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.7.11.4
* The Makefile rule to create assembly output (primarily for
debugging purposes) did not create it next to the source.
* The code to avoid mistaken attempt to add the object directory
itself as its own alternate could read beyond end of a string while
* On some architectures, "block-sha1" did not compile correctly
when compilers inferred alignment guarantees from our source we
did not intend to make.
* When talking to a remote running ssh on IPv6 enabled host, whose
address is spelled as "[HOST]:PORT", we did not parse the address
correctly and failed to connect.
* git-blame.el (in compat/) have been updated to use Elisp more
* "git checkout <branchname>" to come back from a detached HEAD state
incorrectly computed reachability of the detached HEAD, resulting
in unnecessary warnings.
* "git mergetool" did not support --tool-help option to give the list
of supported backends, like "git difftool" does.
* "git grep" stopped spawning an external "grep" long time ago, but a
duplicated test to check internal and external "grep" was left
Also contains minor typofixes and documentation updates.
