1 Git 1.7.3.5 Release Notes
2 =========================
3
4 * The xfuncname pattern used by "git diff" and "git grep" to show the
5 last notable line in context were broken for python and ruby for a long
6 time.
7
8 * "git merge" into an unborn branch removed an untracked file "foo" from
9 the working tree when merged branch had "foo" (this fix was already in
10 1.7.3.3 but was omitted from the release notes by mistake).
11
12 * "git status -s" did not quote unprintable characters in paths as
13 documented.
14
15 * "git am --abort" used to always reset to the commit at the beginning of
16 the last "am" invocation that has stopped, losing any unrelated commits
17 that may have been made since then. Now it refrains from doing so and
18 instead issues a warning.
19
20 * "git blame" incorrectly reused bogusly cached result of textconv
21 filter for files from the working tree.
22
23 * "git commit" used to abort after the user edited the log message
24 when the committer information was not correctly set up. It now
25 aborts before starting the editor.
26
27 * "git commit --date=invalid" used to silently ignore the incorrectly
28 specified date; it is now diagnosed as an error.
29
30 * "git rebase --skip" to skip the last commit in a series used to fail
31 to run post-rewrite hook and to copy notes from old commits that have
32 successfully been rebased so far. Now it do (backmerge ef88ad2).
