Git v1.8.3 Release Notes
Backward compatibility notes (for Git 2.0)
When "git push [$there]" does not say what to push, we have used the
traditional "matching" semantics so far (all your branches were sent
to the remote as long as there already are branches of the same name
over there). In Git 2.0, the default will change to the "simple"
semantics that pushes the current branch to the branch with the same
name, only when the current branch is set to integrate with that
remote branch. There is a user preference configuration variable
"push.default" to change this. If you are an old-timer who is used
to the "matching" semantics, you can set it to "matching" to keep the
traditional behaviour. If you want to live in the future early,
you can set it to "simple" today without waiting for Git 2.0.
When "git add -u" and "git add -A", that does not specify what paths
to add on the command line is run from inside a subdirectory, these
commands will operate on the entire tree in Git 2.0 for consistency
with "git commit -a" and other commands. Because there will be no
mechanism to make "git add -u" behave as if "git add -u .", it is
important for those who are used to "git add -u" (without pathspec)
updating the index only for paths in the current subdirectory to start
training their fingers to explicitly say "git add -u ." when they mean
it before Git 2.0 comes.
