Git v1.7.3 Release Notes (draft)
Updates since v1.7.2
* git-gui got various updates and a new maintainer, Pat Thoyts.
* Gitweb allows its configuration to change per each request; it used to
read the configuration once upon startup.
* When git finds a corrupt object, it now reports the file that contains
* "git checkout -B <it>" is a shorter way to say "git branch -f <it>"
followed by "git checkout <it>".
* When "git checkout" or "git merge" refuse to proceed in order to
protect local modification to your working tree, they used to stop
after showing just one path that might be lost. They now show all,
in a format that is easier to read.
* "git clean" learned "-e" ("--exclude") option.
* Hunk headers produced for C# files by "git diff" and friends show more
relevant context than before.
* diff.ignoresubmodules configuration variable can be used to squelch the
differences in submodules reported when running commands (e.g. "diff",
"status", etc.) at the superproject level.
* http.useragent configuration can be used to lie who you are to your
restrictive firewall.
* "git rebase --strategy <s>" learned "-X" option to pass extra options
that are understood by the chosen merge strategy.
* "git rebase -i" learned "exec" that you can insert into the insn sheet
to run a command between its steps.
* "git rebase" between branches that have many binary changes that do
not conflict should be faster.
* "git rebase -i" peeks into rebase.autosquash configuration and acts as
if you gave --autosquash from the command line.
Also contains various documentation updates.
Fixes since v1.7.2
All of the fixes in v1.7.2.X maintenance series are included in this
release, unless otherwise noted.
* "git merge -s recursive" (which is the default) did not handle cases
where a directory becomes a file (or vice versa) very well.
* "git fetch" and friends were accidentally broken for url with "+" in
its path, e.g. "git://".
