1 GIT v1.5.6.4 Release Notes
2 ==========================
3
4 Fixes since v1.5.6.3
5 --------------------
6
7 * Various commands could overflow its internal buffer on a platform
8 with small PATH_MAX value in a repository that has contents with
9 long pathnames.
10
11 * There wasn't a way to make --pretty=format:%<> specifiers to honor
12 .mailmap name rewriting for authors and committers. Now you can with
13 %aN and %cN.
14
15 * Bash completion wasted too many cycles; this has been optimized to be
16 usable again.
17
18 * Bash completion lost ref part when completing something like "git show
19 pu:Makefile".
20
21 * "git-cvsserver" did not clean up its temporary working area after annotate
22 request.
23
24 * "git-daemon" called syslog() from its signal handler, which was a
25 no-no.
26
27 * "git-fetch" into an empty repository used to remind that the fetch will
28 be huge by saying "no common commits", but this was an unnecessary
29 noise; it is already known by the user anyway.
30
31 * "git-http-fetch" would have segfaulted when pack idx file retrieved
32 from the other side was corrupt.
33
34 * "git-index-pack" used too much memory when dealing with a deep delta chain.
35
36 * "git-mailinfo" (hence "git-am") did not correctly handle in-body [PATCH]
37 line to override the commit title taken from the mail Subject header.
38
39 * "git-rebase -i -p" lost parents that are not involved in the history
40 being rewritten.
41
42 * "git-rm" lost track of where the index file was when GIT_DIR was
43 specified as a relative path.
44
45 * "git-rev-list --quiet" was not quiet as advertised.
46
47 Contains other various documentation fixes.
