Git v2.15.1 Release Notes
Fixes since v2.15
* TravisCI build updates.
* "auto" as a value for the columnar output configuration ought to
judge "is the output consumed by humans?" with the same criteria as
"auto" for coloured output configuration, i.e. either the standard
output stream is going to tty, or a pager is in use. We forgot the
latter, which has been fixed.
* The experimental "color moved lines differently in diff output"
feature was buggy around "ignore whitespace changes" edges, whihch
has been corrected.
* Instead of using custom line comparison and hashing functions to
implement "moved lines" coloring in the diff output, use the pair
of these functions from lower-layer xdiff/ code.
* Some codepaths did not check for errors when asking what branch the
HEAD points at, which have been fixed.
* "git commit", after making a commit, did not check for errors when
asking on what branch it made the commit, which has been correted.
* "git status --ignored -u" did not stop at a working tree of a
separate project that is embedded in an ignored directory and
listed files in that other project, instead of just showing the
directory itself as ignored.
* A broken access to object databases in recent update to "git grep
--recurse-submodules" has been fixed.
* A recent regression in "git rebase -i" that broke execution of git
commands from subdirectories via "exec" insn has been fixed.
* "git check-ref-format --branch @{-1}" bit a "BUG()" when run
outside a repository for obvious reasons; clarify the documentation
and make sure we do not even try to expand the at-mark magic in
such a case, but still call the validation logic for branch names.
* Command line completion (in contrib/) update.
* Description of blame.{showroot,blankboundary,showemail,date}
configuration variables have been added to "git config --help".
* After an error from lstat(), diff_populate_filespec() function
sometimes still went ahead and used invalid data in struct stat,
which has been fixed.
* UNC paths are also relevant in Cygwin builds and they are now
tested just like Mingw builds.
* Correct start-up sequence so that a repository could be placed
immediately under the root directory again (which was broken at
around Git 2.13).
* The credential helper for libsecret (in contrib/) has been improved
to allow possibly prompting the end user to unlock secrets that are
currently locked (otherwise the secrets may not be loaded).
* Updates from GfW project.
Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
