1 Git v2.7.2 Release Notes
2 ========================
3
4 Fixes since v2.7.1
5 ------------------
6
7 * The low-level merge machinery has been taught to use CRLF line
8 termination when inserting conflict markers to merged contents that
9 are themselves CRLF line-terminated.
10
11 * "git worktree" had a broken code that attempted to auto-fix
12 possible inconsistency that results from end-users moving a
13 worktree to different places without telling Git (the original
14 repository needs to maintain backpointers to its worktrees, but
15 "mv" run by end-users who are not familiar with that fact will
16 obviously not adjust them), which actually made things worse
17 when triggered.
18
19 * "git push --force-with-lease" has been taught to report if the push
20 needed to force (or fast-forwarded).
21
22 * The emulated "yes" command used in our test scripts has been
23 tweaked not to spend too much time generating unnecessary output
24 that is not used, to help those who test on Windows where it would
25 not stop until it fills the pipe buffer due to lack of SIGPIPE.
26
27 * The vimdiff backend for "git mergetool" has been tweaked to arrange
28 and number buffers in the order that would match the expectation of
29 majority of people who read left to right, then top down and assign
30 buffers 1 2 3 4 "mentally" to local base remote merge windows based
31 on that order.
32
33 * The documentation for "git clean" has been corrected; it mentioned
34 that .git/modules/* are removed by giving two "-f", which has never
35 been the case.
36
37 * Paths that have been told the index about with "add -N" are not
38 quite yet in the index, but a few commands behaved as if they
39 already are in a harmful way.
40
41 Also includes tiny documentation and test updates.
