1 Git v2.13.2 Release Notes
2 =========================
3
4 Fixes since v2.13.1
5 -------------------
6
7 * The "collision detecting" SHA-1 implementation shipped with 2.13.1
8 was still broken on some platforms. Update to the upstream code
9 again to take their fix.
10
11 * "git checkout --recurse-submodules" did not quite work with a
12 submodule that itself has submodules.
13
14 * Introduce the BUG() macro to improve die("BUG: ...").
15
16 * The "run-command" API implementation has been made more robust
17 against dead-locking in a threaded environment.
18
19 * A recent update to t5545-push-options.sh started skipping all the
20 tests in the script when a web server testing is disabled or
21 unavailable, not just the ones that require a web server. Non HTTP
22 tests have been salvaged to always run in this script.
23
24 * "git clean -d" used to clean directories that has ignored files,
25 even though the command should not lose ignored ones without "-x".
26 "git status --ignored" did not list ignored and untracked files
27 without "-uall". These have been corrected.
28
29 * The timestamp of the index file is now taken after the file is
30 closed, to help Windows, on which a stale timestamp is reported by
31 fstat() on a file that is opened for writing and data was written
32 but not yet closed.
33
34 * "git pull --rebase --autostash" didn't auto-stash when the local history
35 fast-forwards to the upstream.
36
37 * "git describe --contains" penalized light-weight tags so much that
38 they were almost never considered. Instead, give them about the
39 same chance to be considered as an annotated tag that is the same
40 age as the underlying commit would.
41
42 * The result from "git diff" that compares two blobs, e.g. "git diff
43 $commit1:$path $commit2:$path", used to be shown with the full
44 object name as given on the command line, but it is more natural to
45 use the $path in the output and use it to look up .gitattributes.
46
47 * A flaky test has been corrected.
48
49 * Help contributors that visit us at GitHub.
50
51 * "git stash push <pathspec>" did not work from a subdirectory at all.
