Git v2.12.1 Release Notes
Fixes since v2.12
* Reduce authentication round-trip over HTTP when the server supports
just a single authentication method. This also improves the
behaviour when Git is misconfigured to enable http.emptyAuth
against a server that does not authenticate without a username
(i.e. not using Kerberos etc., which makes http.emptyAuth
* Windows port wants to use OpenSSL's implementation of SHA-1
routines, so let them.
* Add 32-bit Linux variant to the set of platforms to be tested with
Travis CI.
* When a redirected http transport gets an error during the
redirected request, we ignored the error we got from the server,
and ended up giving a not-so-useful error message.
* The patch subcommand of "git add -i" was meant to have paths
selection prompt just like other subcommand, unlike "git add -p"
directly jumps to hunk selection. Recently, this was broken and
"add -i" lost the paths selection dialog, but it now has been
* Git v2.12 was shipped with an embarrassing breakage where various
operations that verify paths given from the user stopped dying when
seeing an issue, and instead later triggering segfault.
* The code to parse "git log -L..." command line was buggy when there
are many ranges specified with -L; overrun of the allocated buffer
has been fixed.
* The command-line parsing of "git log -L" copied internal data
structures using incorrect size on ILP32 systems.
Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
