1 Git v1.7.11.7 Release Notes
2 ===========================
3
4 Fixes since v1.7.11.6
5 ---------------------
6
7 * The synopsis said "checkout [-B branch]" to make it clear the
8 branch name is a parameter to the option, but the heading for the
9 option description was "-B::", not "-B branch::", making the
10 documentation misleading.
11
12 * Git ships with a fall-back regexp implementation for platforms with
13 buggy regexp library, but it was easy for people to keep using their
14 platform regexp. A new test has been added to check this.
15
16 * "git apply -p0" did not parse pathnames on "diff --git" line
17 correctly. This caused patches that had pathnames in no other
18 places to be mistakenly rejected (most notably, binary patch that
19 does not rename nor change mode). Textual patches, renames or mode
20 changes have preimage and postimage pathnames in different places
21 in a form that can be parsed unambiguously and did not suffer from
22 this problem.
23
24 * After "gitk" showed the contents of a tag, neither "Reread
25 references" nor "Reload" did not update what is shown as the
26 contents of it, when the user overwrote the tag with "git tag -f".
27
28 * "git for-each-ref" did not currectly support more than one --sort
29 option.
30
31 * "git log .." errored out saying it is both rev range and a path
32 when there is no disambiguating "--" is on the command line.
33 Update the command line parser to interpret ".." as a path in such
34 a case.
35
36 * Pushing to smart HTTP server with recent Git fails without having
37 the username in the URL to force authentication, if the server is
38 configured to allow GET anonymously, while requiring authentication
39 for POST.
40
41 * "git show --format='%ci'" did not give timestamp correctly for
42 commits created without human readable name on "committer" line.
43 (merge e27ddb6 jc/maint-ident-missing-human-name later to maint).
44
45 * "git show --quiet" ought to be a synonym for "git show -s", but
46 wasn't.
