Git 2.22 Release Notes
Updates since v2.21
UI, Workflows & Features
* "git checkout --no-overlay" can be used to trigger a new mode of
checking out paths out of the tree-ish, that allows paths that
match the pathspec that are in the current index and working tree
and are not in the tree-ish.
* The %(trailers) formatter in "git log --format=..." now allows to
optionally pick trailers selectively by keyword, show only values,
* Four new configuration variables {author,committer}.{name,email}
have been introduced to override user.{name,email} in more specific
* Command-line completion (in contrib/) learned to tab-complete the
"git submodule absorbgitdirs" subcommand.
* "git branch" learned a new subcommand "--show-current".
* Output from "diff --cc" did not show the original paths when the
merge involved renames. A new option adds the paths in the
original trees to the output.
* The command line completion (in contrib/) has been taught to
complete more subcommand parameters.
Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
* The diff machinery, one of the oldest parts of the system, which
long predates the parse-options API, uses fairly long and complex
handcrafted option parser. This is being rewritten to use the
parse-options API.
* The implementation of pack-redundant has been updated for
performance in a repository with many packfiles.
* A more structured way to obtain execution trace has been added.
* "git prune" has been taught to take advantage of reachability
bitmap when able.
Fixes since v2.21
* "git prune-packed" did not notice and complain against excess
arguments given from the command line, which now it does.
(merge 9b0bd87ed2 rj/prune-packed-excess-args later to maint).
* Split-index fix.
(merge 6e37c8ed3c nd/split-index-null-base-fix later to maint).
* "git diff --no-index" may still want to access Git goodies like
--ext-diff and --textconv, but so far these have been ignored,
which has been corrected.
(merge 287ab28bfa jk/diff-no-index-initialize later to maint).
* Unify RPC code for smart http in protocol v0/v1 and v2, which fixes
a bug in the latter (lack of authentication retry) and generally
improves the code base.
(merge a97d00799a jt/http-auth-proto-v2-fix later to maint).
* Code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.
(merge 11f470aee7 jc/test-yes-doc later to maint).
(merge 90503a240b js/doc-symref-in-proto-v1 later to maint).
