2======================

4Updates since v2.18
5-------------------
6
7UI, Workflows & Features
8
ed843436
JH
9 * "git diff" compares the index and the working tree. For paths
10 added with intent-to-add bit, the command shows the full contents
11 of them as added, but the paths themselves were not marked as new
12 files. They are now shown as new by default.
13
14 "git apply" learned the "--intent-to-add" option so that an
15 otherwise working-tree-only application of a patch will add new
16 paths to the index marked with the "intent-to-add" bit.
17
b7bd9486
JH
18 * "git grep" learned the "--column" option that gives not just the
19 line number but the column number of the hit.
20
21 * The "-l" option in "git branch -l" is an unfortunate short-hand for
22 "--create-reflog", but many users, both old and new, somehow expect
23 it to be something else, perhaps "--list". This step warns when "-l"
24 is used as a short-hand for "--create-reflog" and warns about the
25 future repurposing of the it when it is used.
26
ffc6fa0e
JH
27 * The userdiff pattern for .php has been updated.
28
29 * The content-transfer-encoding of the message "git send-email" sends
30 out by default was 8bit, which can cause trouble when there is an
31 overlong line to bust RFC 5322/2822 limit. A new option 'auto' to
32 automatically switch to quoted-printable when there is such a line
33 in the payload has been introduced and is made the default.
34
1d89318c
JH
35 * "git checkout" and "git worktree add" learned to honor
36 checkout.defaultRemote when auto-vivifying a local branch out of a
37 remote tracking branch in a repository with multiple remotes that
38 have tracking branches that share the same names.
39 (merge 8d7b558bae ab/checkout-default-remote later to maint).
40
41 * "git grep" learned the "--only-matching" option.
42
43 * "git rebase --rebase-merges" mode now handles octopus merges as
44 well.
45
46 * Add a server-side knob to skip commits in exponential/fibbonacci
47 stride in an attempt to cover wider swath of history with a smaller
48 number of iterations, potentially accepting a larger packfile
49 transfer, instead of going back one commit a time during common
50 ancestor discovery during the "git fetch" transaction.
51 (merge 42cc7485a2 jt/fetch-negotiator-skipping later to maint).
52
63749b2d
JH
53 * A new configuration variable core.usereplacerefs has been added,
54 primarily to help server installations that want to ignore the
55 replace mechanism altogether.
56
57 * Teach "git tag -s" etc. a few configuration variables (gpg.format
58 that can be set to "openpgp" or "x509", and gpg.<format>.program
59 that is used to specify what program to use to deal with the format)
60 to allow x.509 certs with CMS via "gpgsm" to be used instead of
61 openpgp via "gnupg".
62
63 * Many more strings are prepared for l10n.
64
65 * "git p4 submit" learns to ask its own pre-submit hook if it should
66 continue with submitting.
67
fa03cdc3
JH
68 * The test performed at the receiving end of "git push" to prevent
69 bad objects from entering repository can be customized via
70 receive.fsck.* configuration variables; we now have gained a
71 counterpart to do the same on the "git fetch" side, with
72 fetch.fsck.* configuration variables.
73
74 * "git pull --rebase=interactive" learned "i" as a short-hand for
75 "interactive".
0bf8c8ce 76
7e8bfb04
JH
77 * "git instaweb" has been adjusted to run better with newer Apache on
78 RedHat based distros.
79
80 * "git range-diff" is a reimplementation of "git tbdiff" that lets us
81 compare individual patches in two iterations of a topic.
82
83 * The sideband code learned to optionally paint selected keywords at
84 the beginning of incoming lines on the receiving end.
85
b9dfa238
JH
86 * "git branch --list" learned to take the default sort order from the
87 'branch.sort' configuration variable, just like "git tag --list"
88 pays attention to 'tag.sort'.
89
90 * "git worktree" command learned "--quiet" option to make it less
91 verbose.
92
7e8bfb04 93
0bf8c8ce
JH
94Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
95
ed843436
JH
96 * The bulk of "git submodule foreach" has been rewritten in C.
97
98 * The in-core "commit" object had an all-purpose "void *util" field,
99 which was tricky to use especially in library-ish part of the
100 code. All of the existing uses of the field has been migrated to a
101 more dedicated "commit-slab" mechanism and the field is eliminated.
102
103 * A less often used command "git show-index" has been modernized.
104 (merge fb3010c31f jk/show-index later to maint).
105
106 * The conversion to pass "the_repository" and then "a_repository"
107 throughout the object access API continues.
108
109 * Continuing with the idea to programatically enumerate various
110 pieces of data required for command line completion, teach the
111 codebase to report the list of configuration variables
112 subcommands care about to help complete them.
113
114 * Separate "rebase -p" codepath out of "rebase -i" implementation to
115 slim down the latter and make it easier to manage.
116
e3331758
JH
117 * Make refspec parsing codepath more robust.
118
119 * Some flaky tests have been fixed.
120
121 * Continuing with the idea to programmatically enumerate various
122 pieces of data required for command line completion, the codebase
123 has been taught to enumerate options prefixed with "--no-" to
124 negate them.
125
126 * Build and test procedure for netrc credential helper (in contrib/)
127 has been updated.
128
b7bd9486
JH
129 * Remove unused function definitions and declarations from ewah
130 bitmap subsystem.
131
132 * Code preparation to make "git p4" closer to be usable with Python 3.
133
134 * Tighten the API to make it harder to misuse in-tree .gitmodules
135 file, even though it shares the same syntax with configuration
136 files, to read random configuration items from it.
137
ffc6fa0e
JH
138 * "git fast-import" has been updated to avoid attempting to create
139 delta against a zero-byte-long string, which is pointless.
140
141 * The codebase has been updated to compile cleanly with -pedantic
142 option.
143 (merge 2b647a05d7 bb/pedantic later to maint).
144
145 * The character display width table has been updated to match the
146 latest Unicode standard.
147 (merge 570951eea2 bb/unicode-11-width later to maint).
148
149 * test-lint now looks for broken use of "VAR=VAL shell_func" in test
150 scripts.
151
1d89318c
JH
152 * Conversion from uchar[40] to struct object_id continues.
153
154 * Recent "security fix" to pay attention to contents of ".gitmodules"
155 while accepting "git push" was a bit overly strict than necessary,
156 which has been adjusted.
157
158 * "git fsck" learns to make sure the optional commit-graph file is in
159 a sane state.
160
161 * "git diff --color-moved" feature has further been tweaked.
162
163 * Code restructuring and a small fix to transport protocol v2 during
164 fetching.
165
166 * Parsing of -L[<N>][,[<M>]] parameters "git blame" and "git log"
167 take has been tweaked.
168
169 * lookup_commit_reference() and friends have been updated to find
170 in-core object for a specific in-core repository instance.
171
172 * Various glitches in the heuristics of merge-recursive strategy have
173 been documented in new tests.
174
175 * "git fetch" learned a new option "--negotiation-tip" to limit the
176 set of commits it tells the other end as "have", to reduce wasted
177 bandwidth and cycles, which would be helpful when the receiving
178 repository has a lot of refs that have little to do with the
179 history at the remote it is fetching from.
180
181 * For a large tree, the index needs to hold many cache entries
182 allocated on heap. These cache entries are now allocated out of a
183 dedicated memory pool to amortize malloc(3) overhead.
184
185 * Tests to cover various conflicting cases have been added for
186 merge-recursive.
187
188 * Tests to cover conflict cases that involve submodules have been
189 added for merge-recursive.
190
191 * Look for broken "&&" chains that are hidden in subshell, many of
192 which have been found and corrected.
193
194 * The singleton commit-graph in-core instance is made per in-core
195 repository instance.
196
63749b2d
JH
197 * "make DEVELOPER=1 DEVOPTS=pedantic" allows developers to compile
198 with -pedantic option, which may catch more problematic program
199 constructs and potential bugs.
200
201 * Preparatory code to later add json output for telemetry data has
202 been added.
203
204 * Update the way we use Coccinelle to find out-of-style code that
205 need to be modernised.
206
207 * It is too easy to misuse system API functions such as strcat();
208 these selected functions are now forbidden in this codebase and
209 will cause a compilation failure.
210
211 * Add a script (in contrib/) to help users of VSCode work better with
212 our codebase.
213
214 * The Travis CI scripts were taught to ship back the test data from
215 failed tests.
216 (merge aea8879a6a sg/travis-retrieve-trash-upon-failure later to maint).
217
fa03cdc3
JH
218 * The parse-options machinery learned to refrain from enclosing
219 placeholder string inside a "<bra" and "ket>" pair automatically
220 without PARSE_OPT_LITERAL_ARGHELP. Existing help text for option
221 arguments that are not formatted correctly have been identified and
222 fixed.
223 (merge 5f0df44cd7 rs/parse-opt-lithelp later to maint).
224
225 * Noiseword "extern" has been removed from function decls in the
226 header files.
227
228 * A few atoms like %(objecttype) and %(objectsize) in the format
229 specifier of "for-each-ref --format=<format>" can be filled without
230 getting the full contents of the object, but just with the object
231 header. These cases have been optimized by calling
232 oid_object_info() API (instead of reading and inspecting the data).
233
234 * The end result of documentation update has been made to be
235 inspected more easily to help developers.
236
7e8bfb04
JH
237 * The API to iterate over all objects learned to optionally list
238 objects in the order they appear in packfiles, which helps locality
239 of access if the caller accesses these objects while as objects are
240 enumerated.
241
242 * Improve built-in facility to catch broken &&-chain in the tests.
243
244 * The more library-ish parts of the codebase learned to work on the
245 in-core index-state instance that is passed in by their callers,
246 instead of always working on the singleton "the_index" instance.
247
248 * A test prerequisite defined by various test scripts with slightly
249 different semantics has been consolidated into a single copy and
250 made into a lazily defined one.
251 (merge 6ec633059a wc/make-funnynames-shared-lazy-prereq later to maint).
252
253 * After a partial clone, repeated fetches from promisor remote would
254 have accumulated many packfiles marked with .promisor bit without
255 getting them coalesced into fewer packfiles, hurting performance.
256 "git repack" now learned to repack them.
257
b9dfa238
JH
258 * Partially revert the support for multiple hash functions to regain
259 hash comparison performance; we'd think of a way to do this better
260 in the next cycle.
261
262 * "git help --config" (which is used in command line completion)
263 missed the configuration variables not described in the main
264 config.txt file but are described in another file that is included
265 by it, which has been corrected.
0bf8c8ce 266
c05048d4
JH
267 * The test linter code has learned that the end of here-doc mark
268 "EOF" can be quoted in a double-quote pair, not just in a
269 single-quote pair.
270
271

JH
272Fixes since v2.18
273-----------------
ed843436
JH
274
275 * "git remote update" can take both a single remote nickname and a
276 nickname for remote groups, and the completion script (in contrib/)
277 has been taught about it.
278 (merge 9cd4382ad5 ls/complete-remote-update-names later to maint).
279
280 * "git fetch --shallow-since=<cutoff>" that specifies the cut-off
281 point that is newer than the existing history used to end up
282 grabbing the entire history. Such a request now errors out.
283 (merge e34de73c56 nd/reject-empty-shallow-request later to maint).
284
e3331758
JH
285 * Fix for 2.17-era regression around `core.safecrlf`.
286 (merge 6cb09125be as/safecrlf-quiet-fix later to maint).
287
288 * The recent addition of "partial clone" experimental feature kicked
289 in when it shouldn't, namely, when there is no partial-clone filter
290 defined even if extensions.partialclone is set.
291 (merge cac1137dc4 jh/partial-clone later to maint).
292
293 * "git send-pack --signed" (hence "git push --signed" over the http
294 transport) did not read user ident from the config mechanism to
295 determine whom to sign the push certificate as, which has been
296 corrected.
297 (merge d067d98887 ms/send-pack-honor-config later to maint).
298
299 * "git fetch-pack --all" used to unnecessarily fail upon seeing an
300 annotated tag that points at an object other than a commit.
301 (merge c12c9df527 jk/fetch-all-peeled-fix later to maint).
302
303 * When user edits the patch in "git add -p" and the user's editor is
304 set to strip trailing whitespaces indiscriminately, an empty line
305 that is unchanged in the patch would become completely empty
306 (instead of a line with a sole SP on it). The code introduced in
307 Git 2.17 timeframe failed to parse such a patch, but now it learned
308 to notice the situation and cope with it.
309 (merge f4d35a6b49 pw/add-p-recount later to maint).
310
311 * The code to try seeing if a fetch is necessary in a submodule
312 during a fetch with --recurse-submodules got confused when the path
313 to the submodule was changed in the range of commits in the
314 superproject, sometimes showing "(null)". This has been corrected.
315
b7bd9486
JH
316 * Bugfix for "rebase -i" corner case regression.
317 (merge a9279c6785 pw/rebase-i-keep-reword-after-conflict later to maint).
318
319 * Recently added "--base" option to "git format-patch" command did
320 not correctly generate prereq patch ids.
321 (merge 15b76c1fb3 xy/format-patch-prereq-patch-id-fix later to maint).
322
323 * POSIX portability fix in Makefile to fix a glitch introduced a few
324 releases ago.
325 (merge 6600054e9b dj/runtime-prefix later to maint).
326
327 * "git filter-branch" when used with the "--state-branch" option
328 still attempted to rewrite the commits whose filtered result is
329 known from the previous attempt (which is recorded on the state
330 branch); the command has been corrected not to waste cycles doing
331 so.
332 (merge 709cfe848a mb/filter-branch-optim later to maint).
333
334 * Clarify that setting core.ignoreCase to deviate from reality would
335 not turn a case-incapable filesystem into a case-capable one.
336 (merge 48294b512a ms/core-icase-doc later to maint).
337
ffc6fa0e
JH
338 * "fsck.skipList" did not prevent a blob object listed there from
339 being inspected for is contents (e.g. we recently started to
340 inspect the contents of ".gitmodules" for certain malicious
341 patterns), which has been corrected.
342 (merge fb16287719 rj/submodule-fsck-skip later to maint).
343
344 * "git checkout --recurse-submodules another-branch" did not report
345 in which submodule it failed to update the working tree, which
346 resulted in an unhelpful error message.
347 (merge ba95d4e4bd sb/submodule-move-head-error-msg later to maint).
348
349 * "git rebase" behaved slightly differently depending on which one of
350 the three backends gets used; this has been documented and an
351 effort to make them more uniform has begun.
352 (merge b00bf1c9a8 en/rebase-consistency later to maint).
353
354 * The "--ignore-case" option of "git for-each-ref" (and its friends)
355 did not work correctly, which has been fixed.
356 (merge e674eb2528 jk/for-each-ref-icase later to maint).
357
358 * "git fetch" failed to correctly validate the set of objects it
359 received when making a shallow history deeper, which has been
360 corrected.
361 (merge cf1e7c0770 jt/connectivity-check-after-unshallow later to maint).
362
363 * Partial clone support of "git clone" has been updated to correctly
364 validate the objects it receives from the other side. The server
365 side has been corrected to send objects that are directly
366 requested, even if they may match the filtering criteria (e.g. when
367 doing a "lazy blob" partial clone).
368 (merge a7e67c11b8 jt/partial-clone-fsck-connectivity later to maint).
369
370 * Handling of an empty range by "git cherry-pick" was inconsistent
371 depending on how the range ended up to be empty, which has been
372 corrected.
373 (merge c5e358d073 jk/empty-pick-fix later to maint).
374
375 * "git reset --merge" (hence "git merge ---abort") and "git reset --hard"
376 had trouble working correctly in a sparsely checked out working
377 tree after a conflict, which has been corrected.
378 (merge b33fdfc34c mk/merge-in-sparse-checkout later to maint).
379
380 * Correct a broken use of "VAR=VAL shell_func" in a test.
381 (merge 650161a277 jc/t3404-one-shot-export-fix later to maint).
382
383 * "git rev-parse ':/substring'" did not consider the history leading
384 only to HEAD when looking for a commit with the given substring,
385 when the HEAD is detached. This has been fixed.
386 (merge 6b3351e799 wc/find-commit-with-pattern-on-detached-head later to maint).
387
388 * Build doc update for Windows.
389 (merge ede8d89bb1 nd/command-list later to maint).
390
391 * core.commentchar is now honored when preparing the list of commits
392 to replay in "rebase -i".
393
1d89318c
JH
394 * "git pull --rebase" on a corrupt HEAD caused a segfault. In
395 general we substitute an empty tree object when running the in-core
396 equivalent of the diff-index command, and the codepath has been
397 corrected to do so as well to fix this issue.
398 (merge 3506dc9445 jk/has-uncommitted-changes-fix later to maint).
399
400 * httpd tests saw occasional breakage due to the way its access log
401 gets inspected by the tests, which has been updated to make them
402 less flaky.
403 (merge e8b3b2e275 sg/httpd-test-unflake later to maint).
404
405 * Tests to cover more D/F conflict cases have been added for
406 merge-recursive.
407
408 * "git gc --auto" opens file descriptors for the packfiles before
409 spawning "git repack/prune", which would upset Windows that does
410 not want a process to work on a file that is open by another
411 process. The issue has been worked around.
412 (merge 12e73a3ce4 kg/gc-auto-windows-workaround later to maint).
413
414 * The recursive merge strategy did not properly ensure there was no
415 change between HEAD and the index before performing its operation,
416 which has been corrected.
417 (merge 55f39cf755 en/dirty-merge-fixes later to maint).
418
419 * "git rebase" started exporting GIT_DIR environment variable and
420 exposing it to hook scripts when part of it got rewritten in C.
421 Instead of matching the old scripted Porcelains' behaviour,
422 compensate by also exporting GIT_WORK_TREE environment as well to
423 lessen the damage. This can harm existing hooks that want to
424 operate on different repository, but the current behaviour is
425 already broken for them anyway.
426 (merge ab5e67d751 bc/sequencer-export-work-tree-as-well later to maint).
427
428 * "git send-email" when using in a batched mode that limits the
429 number of messages sent in a single SMTP session lost the contents
430 of the variable used to choose between tls/ssl, unable to send the
431 second and later batches, which has been fixed.
432 (merge 636f3d7ac5 jm/send-email-tls-auth-on-batch later to maint).
433
434 * The lazy clone support had a few places where missing but promised
435 objects were not correctly tolerated, which have been fixed.
436
63749b2d
JH
437 * One of the "diff --color-moved" mode "dimmed_zebra" that was named
438 in an unusual way has been deprecated and replaced by
439 "dimmed-zebra".
440 (merge e3f2f5f9cd es/diff-color-moved-fix later to maint).
441
442 * The wire-protocol v2 relies on the client to send "ref prefixes" to
443 limit the bandwidth spent on the initial ref advertisement. "git
444 clone" when learned to speak v2 forgot to do so, which has been
445 corrected.
446 (merge 402c47d939 bw/clone-ref-prefixes later to maint).
447
448 * "git diff --histogram" had a bad memory usage pattern, which has
449 been rearranged to reduce the peak usage.
450 (merge 79cb2ebb92 sb/histogram-less-memory later to maint).
451
452 * Code clean-up to use size_t/ssize_t when they are the right type.
453 (merge 7726d360b5 jk/size-t later to maint).
454
455 * The wire-protocol v2 relies on the client to send "ref prefixes" to
456 limit the bandwidth spent on the initial ref advertisement. "git
457 fetch $remote branch:branch" that asks tags that point into the
458 history leading to the "branch" automatically followed sent to
459 narrow prefix and broke the tag following, which has been fixed.
460 (merge 2b554353a5 jt/tag-following-with-proto-v2-fix later to maint).
461
462 * When the sparse checkout feature is in use, "git cherry-pick" and
463 other mergy operations lost the skip_worktree bit when a path that
464 is excluded from checkout requires content level merge, which is
465 resolved as the same as the HEAD version, without materializing the
466 merge result in the working tree, which made the path appear as
467 deleted. This has been corrected by preserving the skip_worktree
468 bit (and not materializing the file in the working tree).
469 (merge 2b75fb601c en/merge-recursive-skip-fix later to maint).
470
fa03cdc3
JH
471 * The "author-script" file "git rebase -i" creates got broken when
472 we started to move the command away from shell script, which is
473 getting fixed now.
474 (merge 5522bbac20 es/rebase-i-author-script-fix later to maint).
475
476 * The automatic tree-matching in "git merge -s subtree" was broken 5
477 years ago and nobody has noticed since then, which is now fixed.
478 (merge 2ec4150713 jk/merge-subtree-heuristics later to maint).
479
480 * "git fetch $there refs/heads/s" ought to fetch the tip of the
481 branch 's', but when "refs/heads/refs/heads/s", i.e. a branch whose
482 name is "refs/heads/s" exists at the same time, fetched that one
483 instead by mistake. This has been corrected to honor the usual
484 disambiguation rules for abbreviated refnames.
485 (merge 60650a48c0 jt/refspec-dwim-precedence-fix later to maint).

487 * Futureproofing a helper function that can easily be misused.
488 (merge 65bb21e77e es/want-color-fd-defensive later to maint).
489
490 * The http-backend (used for smart-http transport) used to slurp the
491 whole input until EOF, without paying attention to CONTENT_LENGTH
492 that is supplied in the environment and instead expecting the Web
493 server to close the input stream. This has been fixed.
494 (merge eebfe40962 mk/http-backend-content-length later to maint).
495
496 * "git merge --abort" etc. did not clean things up properly when
497 there were conflicted entries in the index in certain order that
498 are involved in D/F conflicts. This has been corrected.
499 (merge ad3762042a en/abort-df-conflict-fixes later to maint).

501 * "git diff --indent-heuristic" had a bad corner case performance.

504 * The "--exec" option to "git rebase --rebase-merges" placed the exec
505 commands at wrong places, which has been corrected.
506
507 * "git verify-tag" and "git verify-commit" have been taught to use
508 the exit status of underlying "gpg --verify" to signal bad or
509 untrusted signature they found.
510 (merge 4e5dc9ca17 jc/gpg-status later to maint).
511
512 * "git mergetool" stopped and gave an extra prompt to continue after
513 the last path has been handled, which did not make much sense.
514 (merge d651a54b8a ng/mergetool-lose-final-prompt later to maint).
515
516 * Among the three codepaths we use O_APPEND to open a file for
517 appending, one used for writing GIT_TRACE output requires O_APPEND
518 implementation that behaves sensibly when multiple processes are
519 writing to the same file. POSIX emulation used in the Windows port
520 has been updated to improve in this area.
521 (merge d641097589 js/mingw-o-append later to maint).
522
523 * "git pull --rebase -v" in a repository with a submodule barfed as
524 an intermediate process did not understand what "-v(erbose)" flag
525 meant, which has been fixed.
526 (merge e84c3cf3dc sb/pull-rebase-submodule later to maint).
527
528 * Recent update to "git config" broke updating variable in a
529 subsection, which has been corrected.
530 (merge bff7df7a87 sb/config-write-fix later to maint).
531
532 * When "git rebase -i" is told to squash two or more commits into
533 one, it labeled the log message for each commit with its number.
534 It correctly called the first one "1st commit", but the next one
535 was "commit #1", which was off-by-one. This has been corrected.
536 (merge dd2e36ebac pw/rebase-i-squash-number-fix later to maint).
537
538 * "git rebase -i", when a 'merge <branch>' insn in its todo list
539 fails, segfaulted, which has been (minimally) corrected.
540 (merge bc9238bb09 pw/rebase-i-merge-segv-fix later to maint).
541
542 * "git cherry-pick --quit" failed to remove CHERRY_PICK_HEAD even
543 though we won't be in a cherry-pick session after it returns, which
544 has been corrected.
545 (merge 3e7dd99208 nd/cherry-pick-quit-fix later to maint).

547 * In a recent update in 2.18 era, "git pack-objects" started
548 producing a larger than necessary packfiles by missing
549 opportunities to use large deltas. This has been corrected.
550
551 * The meaning of the possible values the "core.checkStat"
552 configuration variable can take were not adequately documented,
553 which has been fixed.
554 (merge 9bf5d4c4e2 nd/config-core-checkstat-doc later to maint).

556 * Recent "git rebase -i" update started to write bogusly formatted
557 author-script, with a matching broken reading code. These are
558 fixed.
559
560 * Recent addition of "directory rename" heuristics to the
561 merge-recursive backend makes the command susceptible to false
562 positives and false negatives. In the context of "git am -3",
563 which does not know about surrounding unmodified paths and thus
564 cannot inform the merge machinery about the full trees involved,
565 this risk is particularly severe. As such, the heuristic is
566 disabled for "git am -3" to keep the machinery "more stupid but
567 predictable".
568
569 * "git merge-base" in 2.19-rc1 has performance regression when the
570 (experimental) commit-graph feature is in use, which has been
571 mitigated.
572
