Git v2.38 Release Notes

UI, Workflows & Features

 * "git remote show [-n] frotz" now pays attention to negative

 * "git push" sometimes performs poorly when reachability bitmaps are
   used, even in a repository where other operations are helped by
   bitmaps.  The push.useBitmaps configuration variable is introduced
   to allow disabling use of reachability bitmaps only for "git push".

 * "git grep -m<max-hits>" is a way to limit the hits shown per file.

 * "git merge-tree" learned a new mode where it takes two commits and
   computes a tree that would result in the merge commit, if the
   histories leading to these two commits were to be merged.

 * "git mv A B" in a sparsely populated working tree can be asked to
   move a path between directories that are "in cone" (i.e. expected
   to be materialized in the working tree) and "out of cone"
   (i.e. expected to be hidden).  The handling of such cases has been

 * Earlier, HTTP transport clients learned to tell the server side
   what locale they are in by sending Accept-Language HTTP header, but
   this was done only for some requests but not others.

 * Introduce a safe.barerepository configuration variable that
   allows users to forbid discovery of bare repositories.

 * Various messages that come from the pack-bitmap codepaths have been

 * "git rebase -i" learns to update branches whose tip appear in the
   rebased range with "--update-refs" option.

 * "git ls-files" learns the "--format" option to tweak its output.

 * "git cat-file" learned an option to use the mailmap when showing
   commit and tag objects.

 * When "git merge" finds that it cannot perform a merge, it should
   restore the working tree to the state before the command was
   initiated, but in some corner cases it didn't.

 * Operating modes like "--batch" of "git cat-file" command learned to
   take NUL-terminated input, instead of one-item-per-line.

 * "git rm" has become more aware of the sparse-index feature.

 * "git rev-list --disk-usage" learned to take an optional value
   "human" to show the reported value in human-readable format, like

 * The "diagnose" feature to create a zip archive for diagnostic
   material has been lifted from "scalar" and made into a feature of
   "git bugreport".

 * The namespaces used by "log --decorate" from "refs/" hierarchy by
   default has been tightened.

 * "git rev-list --ancestry-path=C A..B" is a natural extension of
   "git rev-list A..B"; instead of choosing a subset of A..B to those
   that have ancestry relationship with A, it lets a subset with
   ancestry relationship with C.

 * "scalar" now enables built-in fsmonitor on enlisted repositories,
   when able.

 * The bash prompt (in contrib/) learned to optionally indicate when
   the index is unmerged.

 * "git clone" command learned the "--bundle-uri" option to coordinate
   with hosting sites the use of pre-prepared bundle files.

 * "git range-diff" learned to honor pathspec argument if given.

 * "git format-patch --from=<ident>" can be told to add an in-body
   "From:" line even for commits that are authored by the given
   <ident> with "--force-in-body-from" option.

 * The built-in fsmonitor refuses to work on a network mounted
   repositories; a configuration knob for users to override this has
   been introduced.

 * The "scalar" addition from Microsoft is now part of the core Git

Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * Collection of what is referenced by objects in promisor packs have
   been optimized to inspect these objects in the in-pack order.

 * Introduce a helper to see if a branch is already being worked on
   (hence should not be newly checked out in a working tree), which
   performs much better than the existing find_shared_symref() to
   replace many uses of the latter.

 * Teach "git archive" to (optionally and then by default) avoid
   spawning an external "gzip" process when creating ".tar.gz" (and
   ".tgz") archives.

 * Allow large objects read from a packstream to be streamed into a
   loose object file straight, without having to keep it in-core as a

 * Further preparation to turn into a builtin

 * Apply Coccinelle rule to turn raw memmove() into MOVE_ARRAY() cpp
   macro, which would improve maintainability and readability.

 * Teach "make all" to build gitweb as well.

 * Tweak tests so that they still work when the "git init" template
   did not create .git/info directory.

 * Add Coccinelle rules to detect the pattern of initializing and then
   finalizing a structure without using it in between at all, which
   happens after code restructuring and the compilers fail to
   recognize as an unused variable.

 * The code to convert between GPG trust level strings and internal
   constants we use to represent them have been cleaned up.

 * Support for libnettle as SHA256 implementation has been added.

 * The way "git multi-pack" uses parse-options API has been improved.

 * A Coccinelle rule (in contrib/) to encourage use of COPY_ARRAY
   macro has been improved.

 * API tweak to make it easier to run fuzz testing on commit-graph parser.

 * Omit fsync-related trace2 entries when their values are all zero.

 * The codepath to write multi-pack index has been taught to release a
   large chunk of memory that holds an array of objects in the packs,
   as soon as it is done with the array, to reduce memory consumption.

 * Add a level of redirection to array allocation API in xdiff part,
   to make it easier to share with the libgit2 project.

 * "git fetch" client logs the partial clone filter used in the trace2

 * The "bundle URI" design gets documented.

 * The common ancestor negotiation exchange during a "git fetch"
   session now leaves trace log.

 * Test portability improvements.
   (merge 4d1d843be7 mt/rot13-in-c later to maint).

 * The "subcommand" mode is introduced to parse-options API and update
   the command line parser of Git commands with subcommands.

 * The pack bitmap file gained a bitmap-lookup table to speed up
   locating the necessary bitmap for a given commit.

 * The assembly version of SHA-1 implementation for PPC has been

 * The server side that responds to "git fetch" and "git clone"
   request has been optimized by allowing it to send objects in its
   object store without recomputing and validating the object names.

 * Annotate function parameters that are not used (but cannot be
   removed for structural reasons), to prepare us to later compile
   with -Wunused warning turned on.

 * Share the text used to explain configuration variables used by "git
   <subcmd>" in "git help <subcmd>" with the text from "git help config".

 * "git mv A B" in a sparsely populated working tree can be asked to
   move a path from a directory that is "in cone" to another directory
   that is "out of cone".  Handling of such a case has been improved.

 * The chainlint script for our tests has been revamped.

Fixes since v2.37

 * Rewrite of "git add -i" in C that appeared in Git 2.25 didn't
   correctly record a removed file to the index, which was fixed.

 * Certain diff options are currently ignored when combined-diff is
   shown; mark them as incompatible with the feature.

 * Adjust technical/bitmap-format to be formatted by AsciiDoc, and
   add some missing information to the documentation.

 * Fixes for tests when the source directory has unusual characters in
   its path, e.g. whitespaces, double-quotes, etc.

 * "git mktree --missing" lazily fetched objects that are missing from
   the local object store, which was totally unnecessary for the purpose
   of creating the tree object(s) from its input.

 * Give _() markings to fatal/warning/usage: labels that are shown in
   front of these messages.

 * References to commands-to-be-typed-literally in "git rebase"
   documentation mark-up have been corrected.

 * In a non-bare repository, the behavior of Git when the
   core.worktree configuration variable points at a directory that has
   a repository as its subdirectory, regressed in Git 2.27 days.

 * Recent update to vimdiff layout code has been made more robust
   against different end-user vim settings.

 * Plug various memory leaks, both in the main code and in test-tool

 * Fixes a long-standing corner case bug around directory renames in
   the merge-ort strategy.

 * The resolve-undo information in the index was not protected against
   GC, which has been corrected.

 * A corner case bug where lazily fetching objects from a promisor
   remote resulted in infinite recursion has been corrected.

 * "git clone" from a repository with some ref whose HEAD is unborn
   did not set the HEAD in the resulting repository correctly, which
   has been corrected.

 * An earlier attempt to plug leaks placed a clean-up label to jump to
   at a bogus place, which as been corrected.

 * Variable quoting fix in the vimdiff driver of "git mergetool"

 * "git shortlog -n" relied on the underlying qsort() to be stable,
   which shouldn't have.  Fixed.

 * A fix for a regression in test framework.

 * mkstemp() emulation on Windows has been improved.

 * Add missing documentation for "include" and "includeIf" features in
   "git config" file format, which incidentally teaches the command
   line completion to include them in its offerings.

 * Avoid "white/black-list" in documentation and code comments.

 * Workaround for a compiler warning against use of die() in
   osx-keychain (in contrib/).

 * Workaround for a false positive compiler warning.

 * "git p4" working on UTF-16 files on Windows did not implement
   CRLF-to-LF conversion correctly, which has been corrected.

 * "git p4" did not handle non-ASCII client name well, which has been

 * "rerere-train" script (in contrib/) used to honor commit.gpgSign
   while recreating the throw-away merges.

 * "git checkout" miscounted the paths it updated, which has been

 * Fix for a bug that makes write-tree to fail to write out a
   non-existent index as a tree, introduced in 2.37.

 * There was a bug in the codepath to upgrade generation information
   in commit-graph from v1 to v2 format, which has been corrected.

 * Gitweb had legacy URL shortener that is specific to the way
   projects hosted on used to (but no longer) work, which
   has been removed.

 * Fix build procedure for Windows that uses CMake so that it can pick
   up the shell interpreter from local installation location.

 * Conditionally allow building Python interpreter on Windows

 * Fix to lstat() emulation on Windows.

 * Older gcc with -Wall complains about the universal zero initializer
   "struct s = { 0 };" idiom, which makes developers' lives
   inconvenient (as -Werror is enabled by DEVELOPER=YesPlease).  The
   build procedure has been tweaked to help these compilers.

 * Plug memory leaks in the failure code path in the "merge-ort" merge
   strategy backend.

 * "git symbolic-ref symref" is now diagnosed as an error.

 * A follow-up fix to a fix for a regression in 2.36 around hooks.

 * Avoid repeatedly running getconf to ask libc version in the test
   suite, and instead just as it once per script.

 * Platform-specific code that determines if a directory is OK to use
   as a repository has been taught to report more details, especially
   on Windows.

 * "vimdiff3" regression fix.

 * "git fsck" reads mode from tree objects but canonicalizes the mode
   before passing it to the logic to check object sanity, which has
   hid broken tree objects from the checking logic.  This has been
   corrected, but to help existing projects with broken tree objects
   that they cannot fix retroactively, the severity of anomalies this
   code detects has been demoted to "info" for now.

 * Fixes to sparse index compatibility work for "reset" and "checkout"

 * An earlier optimization discarded a tree-object buffer that is
   still in use, which has been corrected.

 * Fix deadlocks between main Git process and subprocess spawned via
   the pipe_command() API, that can kill "git add -p" that was
   reimplemented in C recently.

 * The sequencer machinery translated messages left in the reflog by
   mistake, which has been corrected.

 * xcalloc(), imitating calloc(), takes "number of elements of the
   array", and "size of a single element", in this order.  A call that
   does not follow this ordering has been corrected.

 * The preload-index codepath made copies of pathspec to give to
   multiple threads, which were left leaked.

 * Update the version of Ubuntu used for GitHub Actions CI from 18.04
   to 22.04.

 * The auto-stashed local changes created by "git merge --autostash"
   was mixed into a conflicted state left in the working tree, which
   has been corrected.

 * Multi-pack index got corrupted when preferred pack changed from one
   pack to another in a certain way, which has been corrected.
   (merge 99e4d084ff tb/midx-with-changing-preferred-pack-fix later to maint).

 * The clean-up of temporary files created via mks_tempfile_dt() was
   racy and attempted to unlink() the leading directory when signals
   are involved, which has been corrected.
   (merge babe2e0559 rs/tempfile-cleanup-race-fix later to maint).

 * FreeBSD portability fix for "git maintenance" that spawns "crontab"
   to schedule tasks.
   (merge ee69e7884e bc/gc-crontab-fix later to maint).

 * Those who use diff-so-fancy as the diff-filter noticed a regression
   or two in the code that parses the diff output in the built-in
   version of "add -p", which has been corrected.
   (merge 0a101676e5 js/add-p-diff-parsing-fix later to maint).

 * Segfault fix-up to an earlier fix to the topic to teach "git reset"
   and "git checkout" work better in a sparse checkout.
   (merge 037f8ea6d9 vd/sparse-reset-checkout-fixes later to maint).

 * "git diff --no-index A B" managed its the pathnames of its two
   input files rather haphazardly, sometimes leaking them.  The
   command line argument processing has been straightened out to clean
   it up.
   (merge 2b43dd0eb5 rs/diff-no-index-cleanup later to maint).

 * "git rev-list --verify-objects" ought to inspect the contents of
   objects and notice corrupted ones, but it didn't when the commit
   graph is in use, which has been corrected.
   (merge b27ccae34b jk/rev-list-verify-objects-fix later to maint).

 * More fixes to "add -p"
   (merge 64ec8efb83 js/builtin-add-p-portability-fix later to maint).

 * The parser in the script interface to parse-options in "git
   rev-parse" has been updated to diagnose a bogus input correctly.
   (merge f20b9c36d0 ow/rev-parse-parseopt-fix later to maint).

 * The code that manages list-object-filter structure, used in partial
   clones, leaked the instances, which has been plugged.
   (merge 66eede4a37 jk/plug-list-object-filter-leaks later to maint).

 * Fix another UI regression in the reimplemented "add -p".
   (merge f6f0ee247f rs/add-p-worktree-mode-prompt-fix later to maint).

 * "git fetch" over protocol v2 sent an incorrect ref prefix request
   to the server and made "git pull" with configured fetch refspec
   that does not cover the remote branch to merge with fail, which has
   been corrected.
   (merge 49ca2fba39 jk/proto-v2-ref-prefix-fix later to maint).

 * A result from opendir() was leaking in the commit-graph expiration
   codepath, which has been plugged.
   (merge 12f1ae5324 ml/commit-graph-expire-dir-leak-fix later to maint).

 * Just like we have coding guidelines, we now have guidelines for
   (merge e01b851923 vd/doc-reviewing-guidelines later to maint).

 * Other code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.
   (merge 77b9e85c0f vd/fix-perf-tests later to maint).

git: updated to 2.37.0

Git v2.37 Release Notes

UI, Workflows & Features

 * "vimdiff[123]" mergetool drivers have been reimplemented with a
   more generic layout mechanism.

 * "git -v" and "git -h" are now understood as "git --version" and
   "git --help".

 * The temporary files fed to external diff command are now generated
   inside a new temporary directory under the same basename.

 * "git log --since=X" will stop traversal upon seeing a commit that
   is older than X, but there may be commits behind it that is younger
   than X when the commit was created with a faulty clock.  A new
   option is added to keep digging without stopping, and instead
   filter out commits with timestamp older than X.

 * "git -c branch.autosetupmerge=simple branch $A $B" will set the $B
   as $A's upstream only when $A and $B shares the same name, and "git
   -c push.default=simple" on branch $A would push to update the
   branch $A at the remote $B came from.  Also more places use the
   sole remote, if exists, before defaulting to 'origin'.

 * A new doc has been added that lists tips for tools to work with
   Git's codebase.

 * "git remote -v" now shows the list-objects-filter used during
   fetching from the remote, if available.

 * With the new http.curloptResolve configuration, the CURLOPT_RESOLVE
   mechanism that allows cURL based applications to use pre-resolved
   IP addresses for the requests is exposed to the scripts.

 * "git add -i" was rewritten in C some time ago and has been in
   testing; the reimplementation is now exposed to general public by

 * Deprecate non-cone mode of the sparse-checkout feature.

 * Introduce a filesystem-dependent mechanism to optimize the way the
   bits for many loose object files are ensured to hit the disk

 * The "do not remove the directory the user started Git in" logic,
   when Git cannot tell where that directory is, is disabled.  Earlier
   we refused to run in such a case.

 * A mechanism to pack unreachable objects into a "cruft pack",
   instead of ejecting them into loose form to be reclaimed later, has
   been introduced.

 * Update the doctype written in gitweb output to xhtml5.

 * The "transfer.credentialsInURL" configuration variable controls what
   happens when a URL with embedded login credential is used on either
   "fetch" or "push". Credentials are currently only detected in
   `remote.<name>.url` config, not `remote.<name>.pushurl`.

 * "git revert" learns "--reference" option to use more human-readable
   reference to the commit it reverts in the message template it
   prepares for the user.

 * Various error messages that talk about the removal of
   "--preserve-merges" in "rebase" have been strengthened, and "rebase
   --abort" learned to get out of a state that was left by an earlier
   use of the option.

Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * The performance of the "untracked cache" feature has been improved
   when "--untracked-files=<mode>" and "status.showUntrackedFiles"
   are combined.

 * "git stash" works better with sparse index entries.

 * "git show :<path>" learned to work better with the sparse-index

 * Introduce and apply coccinelle rule to discourage an explicit
   comparison between a pointer and NULL, and applies the clean-up to
   the maintenance track.

 * Preliminary code refactoring around transport and bundle code.

 * "sparse-checkout" learns to work better with the sparse-index

 * A workflow change for translators are being proposed.  git.pot is
   no longer version controlled and it is local responsibility of
   translators to generate it.

 * Plug the memory leaks from the trickiest API of all, the revision

 * Rename .env_array member to .env in the child_process structure.

  * The fsmonitor--daemon handles even more corner cases when
    watching filesystem events.

 * A new bug() and BUG_if_bug() API is introduced to make it easier to
   uniformly log "detect multiple bugs and abort in the end" pattern.

Fixes since v2.36

 * "git submodule update" without pathspec should silently skip an
   uninitialized submodule, but it started to become noisy by mistake.
   (merge 4f1ccef87c gc/submodule-update-part2 later to maint).

 * "diff-tree --stdin" has been broken for about a year, but 2.36
   release broke it even worse by breaking running the command with
   <pathspec>, which in turn broke "gitk" and got noticed.  This has
   been corrected by aligning its behaviour to that of "log".
   (merge f8781bfda3 jc/diff-tree-stdin-fix later to maint).

 * Regression fix for 2.36 where "git name-rev" started to sometimes
   reference strings after they are freed.
   (merge 45a14f578e rs/name-rev-fix-free-after-use later to maint).

 * "git show <commit1> <commit2>... -- <pathspec>" lost the pathspec
   when showing the second and subsequent commits, which has been
   (merge 5cdb38458e jc/show-pathspec-fix later to maint).

 * "git fast-export -- <pathspec>" lost the pathspec when showing the
   second and subsequent commits, which has been corrected.
   (merge d1c25272f5 rs/fast-export-pathspec-fix later to maint).

 * "git format-patch <args> -- <pathspec>" lost the pathspec when
   showing the second and subsequent commits, which has been
   (merge 91f8f7e46f rs/format-patch-pathspec-fix later to maint).

 * "git clone --origin X" leaked piece of memory that held value read
   from the clone.defaultRemoteName configuration variable, which has
   been plugged.
   (merge 6dfadc8981 jc/clone-remote-name-leak-fix later to maint).

 * Get rid of a bogus and over-eager coccinelle rule.
   (merge 08bdd3a185 jc/cocci-xstrdup-or-null-fix later to maint).

 * The path taken by "git multi-pack-index" command from the end user
   was compared with path internally prepared by the tool without first
   normalizing, which lead to duplicated paths not being noticed,
   which has been corrected.
   (merge 11f9e8de3d ds/midx-normalize-pathname-before-comparison later to maint).

 * Correct choices of C compilers used in various CI jobs.
   (merge 3506cae04f ab/cc-package-fixes later to maint).

 * Various cleanups to "git p4".
   (merge 4ff0108d9e jh/p4-various-fixups later to maint).

 * The progress meter of "git blame" was showing incorrect numbers
   when processing only parts of the file.
   (merge e5f5d7d42e ea/progress-partial-blame later to maint).

 * "git rebase --keep-base <upstream> <branch-to-rebase>" computed the
   commit to rebase onto incorrectly, which has been corrected.
   (merge 9e5ebe9668 ah/rebase-keep-base-fix later to maint).

 * Fix a leak of FILE * in an error codepath.
   (merge c0befa0c03 kt/commit-graph-plug-fp-leak-on-error later to maint).

 * Avoid problems from interaction between malloc_check and address
   (merge 067109a5e7 pw/test-malloc-with-sanitize-address later to maint).

 * The commit summary shown after making a commit is matched to what
   is given in "git status" not to use the break-rewrite heuristics.
   (merge 84792322ed rs/commit-summary-wo-break-rewrite later to maint).

 * Update a few end-user facing messages around EOL conversion.
   (merge c970d30c2c ah/convert-warning-message later to maint).

 * Trace2 documentation updates.
   (merge a6c80c313c js/trace2-doc-fixes later to maint).

 * Build procedure fixup.
   (merge 1fbfd96f50 mg/detect-compiler-in-c-locale later to maint).

 * "git pull" without "--recurse-submodules=<arg>" made
   submodule.recurse take precedence over fetch.recurseSubmodules by
   mistake, which has been corrected.
   (merge 5819417365 gc/pull-recurse-submodules later to maint).

 * "git bisect" was too silent before it is ready to start computing
   the actual bisection, which has been corrected.
   (merge f11046e6de cd/bisect-messages-from-pre-flight-states later to maint).

 * macOS CI jobs have been occasionally flaky due to tentative version
   skew between perforce and the homebrew packager.  Instead of
   failing the whole CI job, just let it skip the p4 tests when this
   (merge f15e00b463 cb/ci-make-p4-optional later to maint).

 * A bit of test framework fixes with a few fixes to issues found by
   (merge 7c898554d7 ab/valgrind-fixes later to maint).

 * "git archive --add-file=<path>" picked up the raw permission bits
   from the path and propagated to zip output in some cases, without
   normalization, which has been corrected (tar output did not have
   this issue).
   (merge 6a61661967 jc/archive-add-file-normalize-mode later to maint).

 * "make coverage-report" without first running "make coverage" did
   not produce any meaningful result, which has been corrected.
   (merge 96ddfecc5b ep/coverage-report-wants-test-to-have-run later to maint).

 * The "--current" option of "git show-branch" should have been made
   incompatible with the "--reflog" mode, but this was not enforced,
   which has been corrected.
   (merge 41c64ae0e7 jc/show-branch-g-current later to maint).

 * "git fetch" unnecessarily failed when an unexpected optional
   section appeared in the output, which has been corrected.
   (merge 7709acf7be jt/fetch-peek-optional-section later to maint).

 * The way "git fetch" without "--update-head-ok" ensures that HEAD in
   no worktree points at any ref being updated was too wasteful, which
   has been optimized a bit.
   (merge f7400da800 os/fetch-check-not-current-branch later to maint).

 * "git fetch --recurse-submodules" from multiple remotes (either from
   a remote group, or "--all") used to make one extra "git fetch" in
   the submodules, which has been corrected.
   (merge 0353c68818 jc/avoid-redundant-submodule-fetch later to maint).

 * With a recent update to refuse access to repositories of other
   people by default, "sudo make install" and "sudo git describe"
   stopped working, which has been corrected.
   (merge 6b11e3d52e cb/path-owner-check-with-sudo-plus later to maint).

 * The tests that ensured merges stop when interfering local changes
   are present did not make sure that local changes are preserved; now
   they do.
   (merge 4b317450ce jc/t6424-failing-merge-preserve-local-changes later to maint).

 * Some real problems noticed by gcc 12 have been fixed, while false
   positives have been worked around.

 * Update the version of FreeBSD image used in Cirrus CI.
   (merge c58bebd4c6 pb/use-freebsd-12.3-in-cirrus-ci later to maint).

 * The multi-pack-index code did not protect the packfile it is going
   to depend on from getting removed while in use, which has been
   (merge 4090511e40 tb/midx-race-in-pack-objects later to maint).

 * Teach "git repack --geometric" work better with "--keep-pack" and
   avoid corrupting the repository when packsize limit is used.
   (merge 66731ff921 tb/geom-repack-with-keep-and-max later to maint).

 * The documentation on the interaction between "--add-file" and
   "--prefix" options of "git archive" has been improved.
   (merge a75910602a rs/document-archive-prefix later to maint).

 * A git subcommand like "git add -p" spawns a separate git process
   while relaying its command line arguments.  A pathspec with only
   negative elements was mistakenly passed with an empty string, which
   has been corrected.
   (merge b02fdbc80a jc/all-negative-pathspec later to maint).

 * With a more targeted workaround in http.c in another topic, we may
   be able to lift this blanket "GCC12 dangling-pointer warning is
   broken and unsalvageable" workaround.
   (merge 419141e495 cb/buggy-gcc-12-workaround later to maint).

 * A misconfigured 'branch..remote' led to a bug in configuration
   (merge f1dfbd9ee0 gc/zero-length-branch-config-fix later to maint).

 * "git -c diff.submodule=log range-diff" did not show anything for
   submodules that changed in the ranges being compared, and
   "git -c diff.submodule=diff range-diff" did not work correctly.
   Fix this by including the "--submodule=short" output
   unconditionally to be compared.

 * In Git 2.36 we revamped the way how hooks are invoked.  One change
   that is end-user visible is that the output of a hook is no longer
   directly connected to the standard output of "git" that spawns the
   hook, which was noticed post release.  This is getting corrected.
   (merge a082345372 ab/hooks-regression-fix later to maint).

 * Updating the graft information invalidates the list of parents of
   in-core commit objects that used to be in the graft file.

 * "git show-ref --heads" (and "--tags") still iterated over all the
   refs only to discard refs outside the specified area, which has
   been corrected.
   (merge c0c9d35e27 tb/show-ref-optim later to maint).

 * Remove redundant copying (with index v3 and older) or possible
   over-reading beyond end of mmapped memory (with index v4) has been
   (merge 6d858341d2 zh/read-cache-copy-name-entry-fix later to maint).

 * Sample watchman interface hook sometimes failed to produce
   correctly formatted JSON message, which has been corrected.
   (merge 134047b500 sn/fsmonitor-missing-clock later to maint).

 * Use-after-free (with another forget-to-free) fix.
   (merge 323822c72b ab/remote-free-fix later to maint).

 * Remove a coccinelle rule that is no longer relevant.
   (merge b1299de4a1 jc/cocci-cleanup later to maint).

git: updated to 2.23.0

Git 2.23 Release Notes

Updates since v2.22

Backward compatibility note

 * The "--base" option of "format-patch" computed the patch-ids for
   prerequisite patches in an unstable way, which has been updated to
   compute in a way that is compatible with "git patch-id --stable".

 * The "git log" command by default behaves as if the --mailmap option
   was given.

UI, Workflows & Features

 * The "git fast-export/import" pair has been taught to handle commits
   with log messages in encoding other than UTF-8 better.

 * In recent versions of Git, per-worktree refs are exposed in
   refs/worktrees/<wtname>/ hierarchy, which means that worktree names
   must be a valid refname component.  The code now sanitizes the names
   given to worktrees, to make sure these refs are well-formed.

 * "git merge" learned "--quit" option that cleans up the in-progress
   merge while leaving the working tree and the index still in a mess.

 * "git format-patch" learns a configuration to set the default for
   its --notes=<ref> option.

 * The code to show args with potential typo that cannot be
   interpreted as a commit-ish has been improved.

 * "git clone --recurse-submodules" learned to set up the submodules
   to ignore commit object names recorded in the superproject gitlink
   and instead use the commits that happen to be at the tip of the
   remote-tracking branches from the get-go, by passing the new
   "--remote-submodules" option.

 * The pattern "git diff/grep" use to extract funcname and words
   boundary for Matlab has been extend to cover Octave, which is more
   or less equivalent.

 * "git help git" was hard to discover (well, at least for some

 * The pattern "git diff/grep" use to extract funcname and words
   boundary for Rust has been added.

 * "git status" can be told a non-standard default value for the
   "--[no-]ahead-behind" option with a new configuration variable

 * "git fetch" and "git pull" reports when a fetch results in
   non-fast-forward updates to let the user notice unusual situation.
   The commands learned "--no-show-forced-updates" option to disable
   this safety feature.

 * Two new commands "git switch" and "git restore" are introduced to
   split "checking out a branch to work on advancing its history" and
   "checking out paths out of the index and/or a tree-ish to work on
   advancing the current history" out of the single "git checkout"

 * "git branch --list" learned to always output the detached HEAD as
   the first item (when the HEAD is detached, of course), regardless
   of the locale.

 * The conditional inclusion mechanism learned to base the choice on
   the branch the HEAD currently is on.

 * "git rev-list --objects" learned the "--no-object-names" option to
   squelch the path to the object that is used as a grouping hint for

 * A new tag.gpgSign configuration variable turns "git tag -a" into
   "git tag -s".

 * "git multi-pack-index" learned expire and repack subcommands.

 * "git blame" learned to "ignore" commits in the history, whose
   effects (as well as their presence) get ignored.

 * "git cherry-pick/revert" learned a new "--skip" action.

 * The tips of refs from the alternate object store can be used as
   starting point for reachability computation now.

 * Extra blank lines in "git status" output have been reduced.

 * The commits in a repository can be described by multiple
   commit-graph files now, which allows the commit-graph files to be
   updated incrementally.

 * "git range-diff" output has been tweaked for easier identification
   of which part of what file the patch shown is about.

Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * Update supporting parts of "git rebase" to remove code that should
   no longer be used.

 * Developer support to emulate unsatisfied prerequisites in tests to
   ensure that the remainder of the tests still succeeds when tests
   with prerequisites are skipped.

 * "git update-server-info" learned not to rewrite the file with the
   same contents.

 * The way of specifying the path to find dynamic libraries at runtime
   has been simplified.  The old default to pass -R/path/to/dir has been
   replaced with the new default to pass -Wl,-rpath,/path/to/dir,
   which is the more recent GCC uses.  Those who need to build with an
   old GCC can still use "CC_LD_DYNPATH=-R"

 * Prepare use of reachability index in topological walker that works
   on a range (A..B).

 * A new tutorial targeting specifically aspiring git-core
   developers has been added.

 * Auto-detect how to tell HP-UX aCC where to use dynamically linked
   libraries from at runtime.

 * "git mergetool" and its tests now spawn fewer subprocesses.

 * Dev support update to help tracing out tests.

 * Support to build with MSVC has been updated.

 * "git fetch" that grabs from a group of remotes learned to run the
   auto-gc only once at the very end.

 * A handful of Windows build patches have been upstreamed.

 * The code to read state files used by the sequencer machinery for
   "git status" has been made more robust against a corrupt or stale
   state files.

 * "git for-each-ref" with multiple patterns have been optimized.

 * The tree-walk API learned to pass an in-core repository
   instance throughout more codepaths.

 * When one step in multi step cherry-pick or revert is reset or
   committed, the command line prompt script failed to notice the
   current status, which has been improved.

 * Many GIT_TEST_* environment variables control various aspects of
   how our tests are run, but a few followed "non-empty is true, empty
   or unset is false" while others followed the usual "there are a few
   ways to spell true, like yes, on, etc., and also ways to spell
   false, like no, off, etc." convention.

 * Adjust the dir-iterator API and apply it to the local clone
   optimization codepath.

 * We have been trying out a few language features outside c89; the
   coding guidelines document did not talk about them and instead had
   a blanket ban against them.

 * A test helper has been introduced to optimize preparation of test
   repositories with many simple commits, and a handful of test
   scripts have been updated to use it.

Fixes since v2.22

 * A relative pathname given to "git init --template=<path> <repo>"
   ought to be relative to the directory "git init" gets invoked in,
   but it instead was made relative to the repository, which has been

 * "git worktree add" used to fail when another worktree connected to
   the same repository was corrupt, which has been corrected.

 * The ownership rule for the file descriptor to fast-import remote
   backend was mixed up, leading to an unrelated file descriptor getting
   closed, which has been fixed.

 * A "merge -c" instruction during "git rebase --rebase-merges" should
   give the user a chance to edit the log message, even when there is
   otherwise no need to create a new merge and replace the existing
   one (i.e. fast-forward instead), but did not.  Which has been

 * Code cleanup and futureproof.

 * More parameter validation.

 * "git update-server-info" used to leave stale packfiles in its
   output, which has been corrected.

 * The server side support for "git fetch" used to show incorrect
   value for the HEAD symbolic ref when the namespace feature is in
   use, which has been corrected.

 * "git am -i --resolved" segfaulted after trying to see a commit as
   if it were a tree, which has been corrected.

 * "git bundle verify" needs to see if prerequisite objects exist in
   the receiving repository, but the command did not check if we are
   in a repository upfront, which has been corrected.

 * "git merge --squash" is designed to update the working tree and the
   index without creating the commit, and this cannot be countermanded
   by adding the "--commit" option; the command now refuses to work
   when both options are given.

 * The data collected by fsmonitor was not properly written back to
   the on-disk index file, breaking t7519 tests occasionally, which
   has been corrected.

 * Update to Unicode 12.1 width table.

 * The command line to invoke a "git cat-file" command from inside
   "git p4" was not properly quoted to protect a caret and running a
   broken command on Windows, which has been corrected.

 * "git request-pull" learned to warn when the ref we ask them to pull
   from in the local repository and in the published repository are

 * When creating a partial clone, the object filtering criteria is
   recorded for the origin of the clone, but this incorrectly used a
   hardcoded name "origin" to name that remote; it has been corrected
   to honor the "--origin <name>" option.

 * "git fetch" into a lazy clone forgot to fetch base objects that are
   necessary to complete delta in a thin packfile, which has been

 * The filter_data used in the list-objects-filter (which manages a
   lazily sparse clone repository) did not use the dynamic array API
   correctly---'nr' is supposed to point at one past the last element
   of the array in use.  This has been corrected.

 * The description about slashes in gitignore patterns (used to
   indicate things like "anchored to this level only" and "only
   matches directories") has been revamped.

 * The URL decoding code has been updated to avoid going past the end
   of the string while parsing %-<hex>-<hex> sequence.

 * The list of for-each like macros used by clang-format has been

 * "git branch --list" learned to show branches that are checked out
   in other worktrees connected to the same repository prefixed with
   '+', similar to the way the currently checked out branch is shown
   with '*' in front.
   (merge 6e9381469e nb/branch-show-other-worktrees-head later to maint).

 * Code restructuring during 2.20 period broke fetching tags via
   "import" based transports.

 * The commit-graph file is now part of the "files that the runtime
   may keep open file descriptors on, all of which would need to be
   closed when done with the object store", and the file descriptor to
   an existing commit-graph file now is closed before "gc" finalizes a
   new instance to replace it.

 * "git checkout -p" needs to selectively apply a patch in reverse,
   which did not work well.

 * Code clean-up to avoid signed integer wraparounds during binary search.

 * "git interpret-trailers" always treated '#' as the comment
   character, regardless of core.commentChar setting, which has been

 * "git stash show 23" used to work, but no more after getting
   rewritten in C; this regression has been corrected.

 * "git rebase --abort" used to leave refs/rewritten/ when concluding
   "git rebase -r", which has been corrected.

 * An incorrect list of options was cached after command line
   completion failed (e.g. trying to complete a command that requires
   a repository outside one), which has been corrected.

 * The code to parse scaled numbers out of configuration files has
   been made more robust and also easier to follow.

 * The codepath to compute delta islands used to spew progress output
   without giving the callers any way to squelch it, which has been

 * Protocol capabilities that go over wire should never be translated,
   but it was incorrectly marked for translation, which has been
   corrected.  The output of protocol capabilities for debugging has
   been tweaked a bit.

 * Use "Erase in Line" CSI sequence that is already used in the editor
   support to clear cruft in the progress output.

 * "git submodule foreach" did not protect command line options passed
   to the command to be run in each submodule correctly, when the
   "--recursive" option was in use.

 * The configuration variable rebase.rescheduleFailedExec should be
   effective only while running an interactive rebase and should not
   affect anything when running a non-interactive one, which was not
   the case.  This has been corrected.

 * The "git clone" documentation refers to command line options in its
   description in the short form; they have been replaced with long
   forms to make them more recognisable.

 * Generation of pack bitmaps are now disabled when .keep files exist,
   as these are mutually exclusive features.
   (merge 7328482253 ew/repack-with-bitmaps-by-default later to maint).

 * "git rm" to resolve a conflicted path leaked an internal message
   "needs merge" before actually removing the path, which was
   confusing.  This has been corrected.

 * "git stash --keep-index" did not work correctly on paths that have
   been removed, which has been fixed.
   (merge b932f6a5e8 tg/stash-keep-index-with-removed-paths later to maint).

 * Window 7 update ;-)

 * A codepath that reads from GPG for signed object verification read
   past the end of allocated buffer, which has been fixed.

 * "git clean" silently skipped a path when it cannot lstat() it; now
   it gives a warning.

 * "git push --atomic" that goes over the transport-helper (namely,
   the smart http transport) failed to prevent refs to be pushed when
   it can locally tell that one of the ref update will fail without
   having to consult the other end, which has been corrected.

 * The internal diff machinery can be made to read out of bounds while
   looking for --function-context line in a corner case, which has been
   (merge b777f3fd61 jk/xdiff-clamp-funcname-context-index later to maint).

 * Other code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.
   (merge fbec05c210 cc/test-oidmap later to maint).
   (merge 7a06fb038c jk/no-system-includes-in-dot-c later to maint).
   (merge 81ed2b405c cb/xdiff-no-system-includes-in-dot-c later to maint).
   (merge d61e6ce1dd sg/fsck-config-in-doc later to maint).

git: updated to 2.19.0

Git 2.19 Release Notes

Updates since v2.18

UI, Workflows & Features

 * "git diff" compares the index and the working tree.  For paths
   added with intent-to-add bit, the command shows the full contents
   of them as added, but the paths themselves were not marked as new
   files.  They are now shown as new by default.

   "git apply" learned the "--intent-to-add" option so that an
   otherwise working-tree-only application of a patch will add new
   paths to the index marked with the "intent-to-add" bit.

 * "git grep" learned the "--column" option that gives not just the
   line number but the column number of the hit.

 * The "-l" option in "git branch -l" is an unfortunate short-hand for
   "--create-reflog", but many users, both old and new, somehow expect
   it to be something else, perhaps "--list".  This step warns when "-l"
   is used as a short-hand for "--create-reflog" and warns about the
   future repurposing of the it when it is used.

 * The userdiff pattern for .php has been updated.

 * The content-transfer-encoding of the message "git send-email" sends
   out by default was 8bit, which can cause trouble when there is an
   overlong line to bust RFC 5322/2822 limit.  A new option 'auto' to
   automatically switch to quoted-printable when there is such a line
   in the payload has been introduced and is made the default.

 * "git checkout" and "git worktree add" learned to honor
   checkout.defaultRemote when auto-vivifying a local branch out of a
   remote tracking branch in a repository with multiple remotes that
   have tracking branches that share the same names.
   (merge 8d7b558bae ab/checkout-default-remote later to maint).

 * "git grep" learned the "--only-matching" option.

 * "git rebase --rebase-merges" mode now handles octopus merges as

 * Add a server-side knob to skip commits in exponential/fibbonacci
   stride in an attempt to cover wider swath of history with a smaller
   number of iterations, potentially accepting a larger packfile
   transfer, instead of going back one commit a time during common
   ancestor discovery during the "git fetch" transaction.
   (merge 42cc7485a2 jt/fetch-negotiator-skipping later to maint).

 * A new configuration variable core.usereplacerefs has been added,
   primarily to help server installations that want to ignore the
   replace mechanism altogether.

 * Teach "git tag -s" etc. a few configuration variables (gpg.format
   that can be set to "openpgp" or "x509", and gpg.<format>.program
   that is used to specify what program to use to deal with the format)
   to allow x.509 certs with CMS via "gpgsm" to be used instead of
   openpgp via "gnupg".

 * Many more strings are prepared for l10n.

 * "git p4 submit" learns to ask its own pre-submit hook if it should
   continue with submitting.

 * The test performed at the receiving end of "git push" to prevent
   bad objects from entering repository can be customized via
   receive.fsck.* configuration variables; we now have gained a
   counterpart to do the same on the "git fetch" side, with
   fetch.fsck.* configuration variables.

 * "git pull --rebase=interactive" learned "i" as a short-hand for

 * "git instaweb" has been adjusted to run better with newer Apache on
   RedHat based distros.

 * "git range-diff" is a reimplementation of "git tbdiff" that lets us
   compare individual patches in two iterations of a topic.

 * The sideband code learned to optionally paint selected keywords at
   the beginning of incoming lines on the receiving end.

 * "git branch --list" learned to take the default sort order from the
   'branch.sort' configuration variable, just like "git tag --list"
   pays attention to 'tag.sort'.

 * "git worktree" command learned "--quiet" option to make it less

Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * The bulk of "git submodule foreach" has been rewritten in C.

 * The in-core "commit" object had an all-purpose "void *util" field,
   which was tricky to use especially in library-ish part of the
   code.  All of the existing uses of the field has been migrated to a
   more dedicated "commit-slab" mechanism and the field is eliminated.

 * A less often used command "git show-index" has been modernized.
   (merge fb3010c31f jk/show-index later to maint).

 * The conversion to pass "the_repository" and then "a_repository"
   throughout the object access API continues.

 * Continuing with the idea to programatically enumerate various
   pieces of data required for command line completion, teach the
   codebase to report the list of configuration variables
   subcommands care about to help complete them.

 * Separate "rebase -p" codepath out of "rebase -i" implementation to
   slim down the latter and make it easier to manage.

 * Make refspec parsing codepath more robust.

 * Some flaky tests have been fixed.

 * Continuing with the idea to programmatically enumerate various
   pieces of data required for command line completion, the codebase
   has been taught to enumerate options prefixed with "--no-" to
   negate them.

 * Build and test procedure for netrc credential helper (in contrib/)
   has been updated.

 * Remove unused function definitions and declarations from ewah
   bitmap subsystem.

 * Code preparation to make "git p4" closer to be usable with Python 3.

 * Tighten the API to make it harder to misuse in-tree .gitmodules
   file, even though it shares the same syntax with configuration
   files, to read random configuration items from it.

 * "git fast-import" has been updated to avoid attempting to create
   delta against a zero-byte-long string, which is pointless.

 * The codebase has been updated to compile cleanly with -pedantic
   (merge 2b647a05d7 bb/pedantic later to maint).

 * The character display width table has been updated to match the
   latest Unicode standard.
   (merge 570951eea2 bb/unicode-11-width later to maint).

 * test-lint now looks for broken use of "VAR=VAL shell_func" in test

 * Conversion from uchar[40] to struct object_id continues.

 * Recent "security fix" to pay attention to contents of ".gitmodules"
   while accepting "git push" was a bit overly strict than necessary,
   which has been adjusted.

 * "git fsck" learns to make sure the optional commit-graph file is in
   a sane state.

 * "git diff --color-moved" feature has further been tweaked.

 * Code restructuring and a small fix to transport protocol v2 during

 * Parsing of -L[<N>][,[<M>]] parameters "git blame" and "git log"
   take has been tweaked.

 * lookup_commit_reference() and friends have been updated to find
   in-core object for a specific in-core repository instance.

 * Various glitches in the heuristics of merge-recursive strategy have
   been documented in new tests.

 * "git fetch" learned a new option "--negotiation-tip" to limit the
   set of commits it tells the other end as "have", to reduce wasted
   bandwidth and cycles, which would be helpful when the receiving
   repository has a lot of refs that have little to do with the
   history at the remote it is fetching from.

 * For a large tree, the index needs to hold many cache entries
   allocated on heap.  These cache entries are now allocated out of a
   dedicated memory pool to amortize malloc(3) overhead.

 * Tests to cover various conflicting cases have been added for

 * Tests to cover conflict cases that involve submodules have been
   added for merge-recursive.

 * Look for broken "&&" chains that are hidden in subshell, many of
   which have been found and corrected.

 * The singleton commit-graph in-core instance is made per in-core
   repository instance.

 * "make DEVELOPER=1 DEVOPTS=pedantic" allows developers to compile
   with -pedantic option, which may catch more problematic program
   constructs and potential bugs.

 * Preparatory code to later add json output for telemetry data has
   been added.

 * Update the way we use Coccinelle to find out-of-style code that
   need to be modernised.

 * It is too easy to misuse system API functions such as strcat();
   these selected functions are now forbidden in this codebase and
   will cause a compilation failure.

 * Add a script (in contrib/) to help users of VSCode work better with
   our codebase.

 * The Travis CI scripts were taught to ship back the test data from
   failed tests.
   (merge aea8879a6a sg/travis-retrieve-trash-upon-failure later to maint).

 * The parse-options machinery learned to refrain from enclosing
   placeholder string inside a "<bra" and "ket>" pair automatically
   without PARSE_OPT_LITERAL_ARGHELP.  Existing help text for option
   arguments that are not formatted correctly have been identified and
   (merge 5f0df44cd7 rs/parse-opt-lithelp later to maint).

 * Noiseword "extern" has been removed from function decls in the
   header files.

 * A few atoms like %(objecttype) and %(objectsize) in the format
   specifier of "for-each-ref --format=<format>" can be filled without
   getting the full contents of the object, but just with the object
   header.  These cases have been optimized by calling
   oid_object_info() API (instead of reading and inspecting the data).

 * The end result of documentation update has been made to be
   inspected more easily to help developers.

 * The API to iterate over all objects learned to optionally list
   objects in the order they appear in packfiles, which helps locality
   of access if the caller accesses these objects while as objects are

 * Improve built-in facility to catch broken &&-chain in the tests.

 * The more library-ish parts of the codebase learned to work on the
   in-core index-state instance that is passed in by their callers,
   instead of always working on the singleton "the_index" instance.

 * A test prerequisite defined by various test scripts with slightly
   different semantics has been consolidated into a single copy and
   made into a lazily defined one.
   (merge 6ec633059a wc/make-funnynames-shared-lazy-prereq later to maint).

 * After a partial clone, repeated fetches from promisor remote would
   have accumulated many packfiles marked with .promisor bit without
   getting them coalesced into fewer packfiles, hurting performance.
   "git repack" now learned to repack them.

 * Partially revert the support for multiple hash functions to regain
   hash comparison performance; we'd think of a way to do this better
   in the next cycle.

 * "git help --config" (which is used in command line completion)
   missed the configuration variables not described in the main
   config.txt file but are described in another file that is included
   by it, which has been corrected.

 * The test linter code has learned that the end of here-doc mark
   "EOF" can be quoted in a double-quote pair, not just in a
   single-quote pair.

Update git to 2.9.2.

Fixes since v2.9.1

 * A fix merged to v2.9.1 had a few tests that are not meant to be
   run on platforms without 64-bit long, which caused unnecessary
   test failures on them because we didn't detect the platform and
   skip them.  These tests are now skipped on platforms that they
   are not applicable to.

Fixes since v2.9

 * When "git daemon" is run without --[init-]timeout specified, a
   connection from a client that silently goes offline can hang around
   for a long time, wasting resources.  The socket-level KEEPALIVE has
   been enabled to allow the OS to notice such failed connections.

 * The commands in `git log` family take %C(auto) in a custom format
   string.  This unconditionally turned the color on, ignoring
   --no-color or with --color=auto when the output is not connected to
   a tty; this was corrected to make the format truly behave as

 * "git rev-list --count" whose walk-length is limited with "-n"
   option did not work well with the counting optimized to look at the
   bitmap index.

 * "git show -W" (extend hunks to cover the entire function, delimited
   by lines that match the "funcname" pattern) used to show the entire
   file when a change added an entire function at the end of the file,
   which has been fixed.

 * The documentation set has been updated so that literal commands,
   configuration variables and environment variables are consistently
   typeset in fixed-width font and bold in manpages.

 * "git svn propset" subcommand that was added in 2.3 days is
   documented now.

 * The documentation tries to consistently spell "GPG"; when
   referring to the specific program name, "gpg" is used.

 * "git reflog" stopped upon seeing an entry that denotes a branch
   creation event (aka "unborn"), which made it appear as if the
   reflog was truncated.

 * The git-prompt scriptlet (in contrib/) was not friendly with those
   who uses "set -u", which has been fixed.

 * A codepath that used alloca(3) to place an unbounded amount of data
   on the stack has been updated to avoid doing so.

 * "git update-index --add --chmod=+x file" may be usable as an escape
   hatch, but not a friendly thing to force for people who do need to
   use it regularly.  "git add --chmod=+x file" can be used instead.

 * Build improvements for gnome-keyring (in contrib/)

 * "git status" used to say "working directory" when it meant "working

 * Comments about misbehaving FreeBSD shells have been clarified with
   the version number (9.x and before are broken, newer ones are OK).

 * "git cherry-pick A" worked on an unborn branch, but "git
   cherry-pick A..B" didn't.

 * "git add -i/-p" learned to honor diff.compactionHeuristic
   experimental knob, so that the user can work on the same hunk split
   as "git diff" output.

 * "log --graph --format=" learned that "%>|(N)" specifies the width
   relative to the terminal's left edge, not relative to the area to
   draw text that is to the right of the ancestry-graph section.  It
   also now accepts negative N that means the column limit is relative
   to the right border.

 * The ownership rule for the piece of memory that hold references to
   be fetched in "git fetch" was screwy, which has been cleaned up.

 * "git bisect" makes an internal call to "git diff-tree" when
   bisection finds the culprit, but this call did not initialize the
   data structure to pass to the diff-tree API correctly.

 * Formats of the various data (and how to validate them) where we use
   GPG signature have been documented.

 * Fix an unintended regression in v2.9 that breaks "clone --depth"
   that recurses down to submodules by forcing the submodules to also
   be cloned shallowly, which many server instances that host upstream
   of the submodules are not prepared for.

 * Fix unnecessarily waste in the idiomatic use of ': ${VAR=default}'
   to set the default value, without enclosing it in double quotes.

 * Some platform-specific code had non-ANSI strict declarations of C
   functions that do not take any parameters, which has been

 * The internal code used to show local timezone offset is not
   prepared to handle timestamps beyond year 2100, and gave a
   bogus offset value to the caller.  Use a more benign looking
   +0000 instead and let "git log" going in such a case, instead
   of aborting.

 * One among four invocations of readlink(1) in our test suite has
   been rewritten so that the test can run on systems without the
   command (others are in valgrind test framework and t9802).

 * t/perf needs /usr/bin/time with GNU extension; the invocation of it
   is updated to "gtime" on Darwin.

 * A bug, which caused "git p4" while running under verbose mode to
   report paths that are omitted due to branch prefix incorrectly, has
   been fixed; the command said "Ignoring file outside of prefix" for
   paths that are _inside_.

 * The top level documentation "git help git" still pointed at the
   documentation set hosted at now-defunct google-code repository.

Changes 2.5.0:
UI, Workflows & Features

 * The bash completion script (in contrib/) learned a few options that
   "git revert" takes.

 * Whitespace breakages in deleted and context lines can also be
   painted in the output of "git diff" and friends with the new
   --ws-error-highlight option.

 * List of commands shown by "git help" are grouped along the workflow
   elements to help early learners.

 * "git p4" now detects the filetype (e.g. binary) correctly even when
   the files are opened exclusively.

 * git p4 attempts to better handle branches in Perforce.

 * "git p4" learned "--changes-block-size <n>" to read the changes in
   chunks from Perforce, instead of making one call to "p4 changes"
   that may trigger "too many rows scanned" error from Perforce.

 * More workaround for Perforce's row number limit in "git p4".

 * Unlike "$EDITOR" and "$GIT_EDITOR" that can hold the path to the
   command and initial options (e.g. "/path/to/emacs -nw"), 'git p4'
   did not let the shell interpolate the contents of the environment
   variable that name the editor "$P4EDITOR" (and "$EDITOR", too).
   This release makes it in line with the rest of Git, as well as with

 * A new short-hand <branch>@{push} denotes the remote-tracking branch
   that tracks the branch at the remote the <branch> would be pushed

 * "git show-branch --topics HEAD" (with no other arguments) did not
   do anything interesting.  Instead, contrast the given revision
   against all the local branches by default.

 * A replacement for contrib/workdir/git-new-workdir that does not
   rely on symbolic links and make sharing of objects and refs safer
   by making the borrowee and borrowers aware of each other.

   Consider this as still an experimental feature; its UI is still
   likely to change.

 * Tweak the sample "store" backend of the credential helper to honor
   XDG configuration file locations when specified.

 * A heuristic we use to catch mistyped paths on the command line
   "git <cmd> <revs> <pathspec>" is to make sure that all the non-rev
   parameters in the later part of the command line are names of the
   files in the working tree, but that means "git grep $str -- \*.c"
   must always be disambiguated with "--", because nobody sane will
   create a file whose name literally is asterisk-dot-see.  Loosen the
   heuristic to declare that with a wildcard string the user likely
   meant to give us a pathspec.

 * "git merge FETCH_HEAD" learned that the previous "git fetch" could
   be to create an Octopus merge, i.e. recording multiple branches
   that are not marked as "not-for-merge"; this allows us to lose an
   old style invocation "git merge <msg> HEAD $commits..." in the
   implementation of "git pull" script; the old style syntax can now
   be deprecated (but not removed yet).

 * Filter scripts were run with SIGPIPE disabled on the Git side,
   expecting that they may not read what Git feeds them to filter.
   We however treated a filter that does not read its input fully
   before exiting as an error.  We no longer do and ignore EPIPE
   when writing to feed the filter scripts.

   This changes semantics, but arguably in a good way.  If a filter
   can produce its output without fully consuming its input using
   whatever magic, we now let it do so, instead of diagnosing it
   as a programming error.

 * Instead of dying immediately upon failing to obtain a lock, the
   locking (of refs etc) retries after a short while with backoff.

 * Introduce http.<url>.SSLCipherList configuration variable to tweak
   the list of cipher suite to be used with libcURL when talking with
   https:// sites.

 * "git subtree" script (in contrib/) used "echo -n" to produce
   progress messages in a non-portable way.

 * "git subtree" script (in contrib/) does not have --squash option
   when pushing, but the documentation and help text pretended as if
   it did.

 * The Git subcommand completion (in contrib/) no longer lists credential
   helpers among candidates; they are not something the end user would
   invoke interactively.

 * The index file can be taught with "update-index --untracked-cache"
   to optionally remember already seen untracked files, in order to
   speed up "git status" in a working tree with tons of cruft.

 * "git mergetool" learned to drive WinMerge as a backend.

 * "git upload-pack" that serves "git fetch" can be told to serve
   commits that are not at the tip of any ref, as long as they are
   reachable from a ref, with uploadpack.allowReachableSHA1InWant
   configuration variable.

Update to 2.4.5

Git v2.4.5 Release Notes

Fixes since v2.4.4

 * The setup code used to die when core.bare and core.worktree are set
   inconsistently, even for commands that do not need working tree.

 * There was a dead code that used to handle "git pull --tags" and
   show special-cased error message, which was made irrelevant when
   the semantics of the option changed back in Git 1.9 days.

 * "color.diff.plain" was a misnomer; give it 'color.diff.context' as
   a more logical synonym.

 * The configuration reader/writer uses mmap(2) interface to access
   the files; when we find a directory, it barfed with "Out of memory?".

 * Recent "git prune" traverses young unreachable objects to safekeep
   old objects in the reachability chain from them, which sometimes
   showed unnecessary error messages that are alarming.

 * "git rebase -i" fired post-rewrite hook when it shouldn't (namely,
   when it was told to stop sequencing with 'exec' insn).

Git v2.4.4 Release Notes

Fixes since v2.4.3

 * l10n updates for German.

 * An earlier leakfix to bitmap testing code was incomplete.

 * "git clean pathspec..." tried to lstat(2) and complain even for
   paths outside the given pathspec.

 * Communication between the HTTP server and http_backend process can
   lead to a dead-lock when relaying a large ref negotiation request.
   Diagnose the situation better, and mitigate it by reading such a
   request first into core (to a reasonable limit).

 * The clean/smudge interface did not work well when filtering an
   empty contents (failed and then passed the empty input through).
   It can be argued that a filter that produces anything but empty for
   an empty input is nonsense, but if the user wants to do strange
   things, then why not?

 * Make "git stash something --help" error out, so that users can
   safely say "git stash drop --help".

 * Clarify that "log --raw" and "log --format=raw" are unrelated

 * Catch a programmer mistake to feed a pointer not an array to
   ARRAY_SIZE() macro, by using a couple of GCC extensions.

 * An earlier fix to the shell prompt script (in contrib/) for using

 * Some old versions of bash do not grok some constructs like
   'printf -v varname' which the prompt and completion code started
   to use recently.  The completion and prompt scripts have been
   adjusted to work better with these old versions of bash.

 * In FreeBSD's and NetBSD's "sh", a return in a dot script in a
   function returns from the function, not only in the dot script,
   breaking "git rebase" on these platforms (regression introduced
   in 1.8.4-rc1).

 * "git rebase -i" and other scripted commands were feeding a
   random, data dependant error message to 'echo' and expecting it
   to come out literally.

 * Setting the "submodule.<name>.path" variable to the empty
   "true" caused the configuration parser to segfault.

 * Output from "git log --full-diff -- <pathspec>" looked strange
   because comparison was done with the previous ancestor that
   touched the specified <pathspec>, causing the patches for paths
   outside the pathspec to show more than the single commit has

 * The auto-tag-following code in "git fetch" tries to reuse the
   same transport twice when the serving end does not cooperate and
   does not give tags that point to commits that are asked for as
   part of the primary transfer.  Unfortunately, Git-aware transport
   helper interface is not designed to be used more than once, hence
   this did not work over smart-http transfer.  Fixed.

 * Send a large request to read(2)/write(2) as a smaller but still
   reasonably large chunks, which would improve the latency when the
   operation needs to be killed and incidentally works around broken
   64-bit systems that cannot take a 2GB write or read in one go.

 * A ".mailmap" file that ends with an incomplete line, when read
   from a blob, was not handled properly.

 * The recent "short-cut clone connectivity check" topic broke a
   shallow repository when a fetch operation tries to auto-follow

 * When send-email comes up with an error message to die with upon
   failure to start an SSL session, it tried to read the error
   string from a wrong place.

 * A call to xread() was used without a loop to cope with short
   read in the codepath to stream large blobs to a pack.

 * On platforms with fgetc() and friends defined as macros, the
   configuration parser did not compile.

 * New versions of MediaWiki introduced a new API for returning
   more than 500 results in response to a query, which would cause
   the MediaWiki remote helper to go into an infinite loop.

 * Subversion's serf access method (the only one available in

Fixes since v1.7.12.1
 * When "git am" is fed an input that has multiple "Content-type: ..."
   header, it did not grok charset= attribute correctly.

 * Even during a conflicted merge, "git blame $path" always meant to
   blame uncommitted changes to the "working tree" version; make it
   more useful by showing cleanly merged parts as coming from the other
   branch that is being merged.

 * "git blame MAKEFILE" run in a history that has "Makefile" but not
   "MAKEFILE" should say "No such file MAKEFILE in HEAD", but got
   confused on a case insensitive filesystem and failed to do so.

 * "git fetch --all", when passed "--no-tags", did not honor the
   "--no-tags" option while fetching from individual remotes (the same
   issue existed with "--tags", but combination "--all --tags" makes
   much less sense than "--all --no-tags").

 * "git log/diff/format-patch --stat" showed the "N line(s) added"
   comment in user's locale and caused careless submitters to send
   patches with such a line in them to projects whose project language
   is not their language, mildly irritating others. Localization to
   the line has been disabled for now.

 * "git log --all-match --grep=A --grep=B" ought to show commits that
   mention both A and B, but when these three options are used with
   --author or --committer, it showed commits that mention either A or
   B (or both) instead.

 * The subcommand to remove the definition of a remote in "git remote"
   was named "rm" even though all other subcommands were spelled out.
   Introduce "git remote remove" to remove confusion, and keep "rm" as
   a backward compatible synonym.

Also contains a handful of documentation updates.

    gitweb: Introduce esc_attr to escape attributes of HTML elements

    It is needed only to escape attributes of handcrafted HTML elements,
    and not those generated using subroutines / methods for HTML

    While at it, add esc_url and esc_html where needed, and prefer to use HTML generating methods than handcrafted HTML code.  Most of
    those are probably unnecessary (could be exploited only by person with
    write access to gitweb config, or at least access to the repository).

    This fixes CVE-2010-3906
