1 GIT v1.6.4.2 Release Notes
2 ==========================
3
4 Fixes since v1.6.4.1
5 --------------------
6
7 * --date=relative output between 1 and 5 years ago rounded the number of
8 years when saying X years Y months ago, instead of rounding it down.
9
10 * "git add -p" did not handle changes in executable bits correctly
11 (a regression around 1.6.3).
12
13 * "git apply" did not honor GNU diff's convention to mark the creation/deletion
14 event with UNIX epoch timestamp on missing side.
15
16 * "git checkout" incorrectly removed files in a directory pointed by a
17 symbolic link during a branch switch that replaces a directory with
18 a symbolic link.
19
20 * "git clean -d -f" happily descended into a subdirectory that is managed by a
21 separate git repository. It now requires two -f options for safety.
22
23 * "git fetch/push" over http transports had two rather grave bugs.
24
25 * "git format-patch --cover-letter" did not prepare the cover letter file
26 for use with non-ASCII strings when there are the series contributors with
27 non-ASCII names.
28
29 * "git pull origin branch" and "git fetch origin && git merge origin/branch"
30 left different merge messages in the resulting commit.
31
32 Other minor documentation updates are included.
