Git v1.8.5.5 Release Notes ==========================

Fixes since v1.8.5.4

  • The pathspec matching code, while comparing two trees (e.g. "git diff A B -- path1 path2") was too aggressive and failed to match some paths when multiple pathspecs were involved.
  • "git repack --max-pack-size=8g" stopped being parsed correctly when the command was reimplemented in C.
  • A recent update to "git send-email" broke platforms where /etc/ssl/certs/ directory exists but cannot be used as SSL_ca_path (e.g. Fedora rawhide).
  • A handful of bugs around interpreting $branch@{upstream} notation and its lookalike, when $branch part has interesting characters, e.g. "@", and ":", have been fixed.
  • "git clone" would fail to clone from a repository that has a ref directly under "refs/", e.g. "refs/stash", because different validation paths do different things on such a refname. Loosen the client side's validation to allow such a ref.
  • "git log --left-right A...B" lost the "leftness" of commits reachable from A when A is a tag as a side effect of a recent bugfix. This is a regression in 1.8.4.x series.
  • "git merge-base --octopus" used to leave cleaning up suboptimal result to the caller, but now it does the clean-up itself.
  • "git mv A B/", when B does not exist as a directory, should error out, but it didn't.

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