Git Release Notes
Fixes since v1.8.1.5
* An earlier change to the attribute system introduced at v1.8.1.2 by
mistake stopped a pattern "dir" (without trailing slash) from
matching a directory "dir" (it only wanted to allow pattern "dir/"
to also match).
* The code to keep track of what directory names are known to Git on
platforms with case insensitive filesystems can get confused upon a
hash collision between these pathnames and looped forever.
* When the "--prefix" option is used to "checkout-index", the code
did not pick the correct output filter based on the attribute
* Annotated tags outside refs/tags/ hierarchy were not advertised
correctly to the ls-remote and fetch with recent version of Git.
* The logic used by "git diff -M --stat" to shorten the names of
files before and after a rename did not work correctly when the
common prefix and suffix between the two filenames overlapped.
* "git update-index -h" did not do the usual "-h(elp)" thing.
* perl/ slurped everything in core only to write it
out to a file descriptor, which was not a very smart thing to do.
* The SSL peer verification done by "git imap-send" did not ask for
Server Name Indication (RFC 4366), failing to connect SSL/TLS
sites that serve multiple hostnames on a single IP.
* "git bundle verify" did not say "records a complete history" for a
bundle that does not have any prerequisites.
Also contains various documentation fixes.
