Git v1.8.5.3 Release Notes
==========================

Fixes since v1.8.5.2
--------------------

 * The "--[no-]informative-errors" options to "git daemon" were parsed
   a bit too loosely, allowing any other string after these option
   names.

 * A "gc" process running as a different user should be able to stop a
   new "gc" process from starting.

 * An earlier "clean-up" introduced an unnecessary memory leak to the
   credential subsystem.

 * "git mv A B/", when B does not exist as a directory, should error
   out, but it didn't.

 * "git rev-parse <revs> -- <paths>" did not implement the usual
   disambiguation rules the commands in the "git log" family used in
   the same way.

 * "git cat-file --batch=", an admittedly useless command, did not
   behave very well.

Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code clean-ups.

Did you manage to download it? I can't find a link anywhere, not even on the official google site.

https://github.com/git/git/archive/v1.8.5.3.tar.gz

However, without the documents and not being sure if the are going to change anything, it is not possible start to work on it, at least for the book.

File md5sum was different from the one in the official google site.

Good ones:

$ md5sum git*1.8.5.3*gz
