Git v1.7.5.1 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.7.5
* When an object "$tree:$path" does not exist, if $path does exist in the
subtree of $tree that corresponds to the subdirectory the user is in,
git now suggests using "$tree:./$path" in addition to the advice to use
the full path from the root of the working tree.
* The "--date=relative" output format used to say "X years, 12 months"
when it should have said "X+1 years".
* The smart-HTTP transfer was broken in 1.7.5 when the client needs
to issue a small POST (which uses content-length) and then a large
POST (which uses chunked) back to back.
* "git clean" used to fail on an empty directory that is not readable,
even though rmdir(2) could remove such a directory. Now we attempt it
as the last resort.
* The "--dirstat" option of "diff" family of commands used to totally
ignore a change that only rearranged lines within a file. Such a
change now counts as at least a minimum but non zero change.
* The "--dirstat" option of "diff" family of commands used to use the
pathname in the original, instead of the pathname in the result,
when renames are involved.
* "git pack-object" did not take core.bigfilethreashold into account
(unlike fast-import); now it does.
* "git reflog" ignored options like "--format=.." on the command line.
* "git stash apply" used to refuse to work if there was any change in
the working tree, even when the change did not overlap with the change
the stash recorded.
* "git stash apply @{99999}" was not diagnosed as an error, even when you
did not have that many stash entries.
* An error message from "git send-email" to diagnose a broken SMTP
connection configuration lacked a space between "hello=<smtp-domain>"
and "port=<smtp-server-port>".
And other minor fixes and documentation updates.
