1GIT v1.5.6.4 Release Notes
2==========================
3
4Fixes since v1.5.6.3
5--------------------
6
7* Various commands could overflow its internal buffer on a platform
8 with small PATH_MAX value in a repository that has contents with
9 long pathnames.
10
11* There wasn't a way to make --pretty=format:%<> specifiers to honor
12 .mailmap name rewriting for authors and committers. Now you can with
13 %aN and %cN.
14
15* Bash completion wasted too many cycles; this has been optimized to be
16 usable again.
17
18* Bash completion lost ref part when completing something like "git show
19 pu:Makefile".
20
21* "git-cvsserver" did not clean up its temporary working area after annotate
22 request.
23
24* "git-daemon" called syslog() from its signal handler, which was a
25 no-no.
26
27* "git-fetch" into an empty repository used to remind that the fetch will
28 be huge by saying "no common commits", but this was an unnecessary
29 noise; it is already known by the user anyway.

31* "git-http-fetch" would have segfaulted when pack idx file retrieved
32 from the other side was corrupt.
33
34* "git-index-pack" used too much memory when dealing with a deep delta chain.
35

37 line to override the commit title taken from the mail Subject header.
38
39* "git-rebase -i -p" lost parents that are not involved in the history
40 being rewritten.
41
