Git v1.8.3.2 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.8.3.1
* Cloning with "git clone --depth N" while fetch.fsckobjects (or
transfer.fsckobjects) is set to true did not tell the cut-off
points of the shallow history to the process that validates the
objects and the history received, causing the validation to fail.
* "git checkout foo" DWIMs the intended "upstream" and turns it into
"git checkout -t -b foo remotes/origin/foo". This codepath has been
updated to correctly take existing remote definitions into account.
* "git fetch" into a shallow repository from a repository that does
not know about the shallow boundary commits (e.g. a different fork
from the repository the current shallow repository was cloned from)
did not work correctly.
* "git subtree" (in contrib/) had one codepath with loose error
checks to lose data at the remote side.
* "git log --ancestry-path A...B" did not work as expected, as it did
not pay attention to the fact that the merge base between A and B
was the bottom of the range being specified.
* "git diff -c -p" was not showing a deleted line from a hunk when
another hunk immediately begins where the earlier one ends.
* "git merge @{-1}~22" was rewritten to "git merge frotz@{1}~22"
incorrectly when your previous branch was "frotz" (it should be
rewritten to "git merge frotz~22" instead).
* "git commit --allow-empty-message -m ''" should not start an
* "git push --[no-]verify" was not documented.
* An entry for "file://" scheme in the enumeration of URL types Git
can take in the HTML documentation was made into a clickable link
by mistake.
* zsh prompt script that borrowed from bash prompt script did not
work due to slight differences in array variable notation between
these two shells.
* The bash prompt code (in contrib/) displayed the name of the branch
being rebased when "rebase -i/-m/-p" modes are in use, but not the
plain vanilla "rebase".
* "git push $there HEAD:branch" did not resolve HEAD early enough, so
it was easy to flip it around while push is still going on and push
out a branch that the user did not originally intended when the
command was started.
* "difftool --dir-diff" did not copy back changes made by the
end-user in the diff tool backend to the working tree in some
