Git v2.2 Release Notes
Updates since v2.1
UI, Workflows & Features
* "git config --edit --global" starts from a skeletal per-user
configuration file contents, instead of a total blank, when the
user does not already have any. This immediately reduces the
need for a later "Have you forgotten setting core.user?" and we
can add more to the template as we gain more experience.
Performance, Internal Implementation, etc.
* Looking up remotes configuration in a repository with very many
remotes defined has been optimized.
* There are cases where you lock and open to write a file, close it
to show the updated contents to external processes, and then have
to update the file again while still holding the lock, but the
lockfile API lacked support for such an access pattern.
* An in-core caching layer to let us avoid reading the same
configuration files number of times has been added.
* Various code paths have been cleaned up and simplified by using
"strbuf", "starts_with()", and "skip_prefix()" APIs more.
Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
Fixes since v2.1
* "git log --pretty/format=" with an empty format string did not
mean the more obvious "No output whatsoever" but "Use default
format", which was counterintuitive.
(merge b9c7d6e jk/pretty-empty-format later to maint).
* Implementations of "tar" that do not understand an extended pax
header would extract the contents of it in a regular file; make
sure the permission bits of this file follows the same tar.umask
configuration setting.
Unless otherwise noted, all the fixes since v2.1 in the maintenance
track are contained in this release (see the maintenance releases'
notes for details).
