Git v2.13.2 Release Notes
Fixes since v2.13.1
* The "collision detecting" SHA-1 implementation shipped with 2.13.1
was still broken on some platforms. Update to the upstream code
again to take their fix.
* "git checkout --recurse-submodules" did not quite work with a
submodule that itself has submodules.
* Introduce the BUG() macro to improve die("BUG: ...").
* The "run-command" API implementation has been made more robust
against dead-locking in a threaded environment.
* A recent update to started skipping all the
tests in the script when a web server testing is disabled or
unavailable, not just the ones that require a web server. Non HTTP
tests have been salvaged to always run in this script.
* "git clean -d" used to clean directories that has ignored files,
even though the command should not lose ignored ones without "-x".
"git status --ignored" did not list ignored and untracked files
without "-uall". These have been corrected.
* The timestamp of the index file is now taken after the file is
closed, to help Windows, on which a stale timestamp is reported by
fstat() on a file that is opened for writing and data was written
but not yet closed.
* "git pull --rebase --autostash" didn't auto-stash when the local history
fast-forwards to the upstream.
* "git describe --contains" penalized light-weight tags so much that
they were almost never considered. Instead, give them about the
same chance to be considered as an annotated tag that is the same
age as the underlying commit would.
* The result from "git diff" that compares two blobs, e.g. "git diff
$commit1:$path $commit2:$path", used to be shown with the full
object name as given on the command line, but it is more natural to
use the $path in the output and use it to look up .gitattributes.
* A flaky test has been corrected.
* Help contributors that visit us at GitHub.
* "git stash push <pathspec>" did not work from a subdirectory at all.
