Git v2.11.1 Release Notes
Fixes since v2.11
* The default Travis-CI configuration specifies newer P4 and GitLFS.
* The character width table has been updated to match Unicode 9.0
* Update the isatty() emulation for Windows by updating the previous
hack that depended on internals of (older) MSVC runtime.
* "git rev-parse --symbolic" failed with a more recent notation like
"HEAD^-1" and "HEAD^!".
* An empty directory in a working tree that can simply be nuked used
to interfere while merging or cherry-picking a change to create a
submodule directory there, which has been fixed..
* The code in "git push" to compute if any commit being pushed in the
superproject binds a commit in a submodule that hasn't been pushed
out was overly inefficient, making it unusable even for a small
project that does not have any submodule but have a reasonable
number of refs.
* "git push --dry-run --recurse-submodule=on-demand" wasn't
"--dry-run" in the submodules.
* The output from "git worktree list" was made in readdir() order,
and was unstable.
* mergetool.<tool>.trustExitCode configuration variable did not apply
to built-in tools, but now it does.
* "git p4" LFS support was broken when LFS stores an empty blob.
* Fix a corner case in merge-recursive regression that crept in
during 2.10 development cycle.
* Update the error messages from the dumb-http client when it fails
to obtain loose objects; we used to give sensible error message
only upon 404 but we now forbid unexpected redirects that needs to
be reported with something sensible.
* When diff.renames configuration is on (and with Git 2.9 and later,
it is enabled by default, which made it worse), "git stash"
misbehaved if a file is removed and another file with a very
similar content is added.
* "git diff --no-index" did not take "--no-abbrev" option.
* "git difftool --dir-diff" had a minor regression when started from
a subdirectory, which has been fixed.
* "git commit --allow-empty --only" (no pathspec) with dirty index
ought to be an acceptable way to create a new commit that does not
change any paths, but it was forbidden, perhaps because nobody
needed it so far.
* A pathname that begins with "//" or "\\" on Windows is special but
path normalization logic was unaware of it.
* "git pull --rebase", when there is no new commits on our side since
we forked from the upstream, should be able to fast-forward without
invoking "git rebase", but it didn't.
* The way to specify hotkeys to "xxdiff" that is used by "git
mergetool" has been modernized to match recent versions of xxdiff.
* Unlike "git am --abort", "git cherry-pick --abort" moved HEAD back
to where cherry-pick started while picking multiple changes, when
the cherry-pick stopped to ask for help from the user, and the user
did "git reset --hard" to a different commit in order to re-attempt
the operation.
* Code cleanup in shallow boundary computation.
* A recent update to receive-pack to make it easier to drop garbage
objects made it clear that GIT_ALTERNATE_OBJECT_DIRECTORIES cannot
have a pathname with a colon in it (no surprise!), and this in turn
made it impossible to push into a repository at such a path. This
has been fixed by introducing a quoting mechanism used when
appending such a path to the colon-separated list.
* The function usage_msg_opt() has been updated to say "fatal:"
before the custom message programs give, when they want to die
with a message about wrong command line options followed by the
standard usage string.
* "git index-pack --stdin" needs an access to an existing repository,
but "git index-pack file.pack" to generate an .idx file that
corresponds to a packfile does not.
* Fix for NDEBUG builds.
* A lazy "git push" without refspec did not internally use a fully
specified refspec to perform 'current', 'simple', or 'upstream'
push, causing unnecessary "ambiguous ref" errors.
* "git p4" misbehaved when swapping a directory and a symbolic link.
* Even though an fix was attempted in Git 2.9.3 days, but running
"git difftool --dir-diff" from a subdirectory never worked. This
has been fixed.
* "git p4" that tracks multile p4 paths imported a single changelist
that touches files in these multiple paths as one commit, followed
by many empty commits. This has been fixed.
* A potential but unlikely buffer overflow in Windows port has been
* When the http server gives an incomplete response to a smart-http
rpc call, it could lead to client waiting for a full response that
will never come. Teach the client side to notice this condition
and abort the transfer.
