Git v2.13.3 Release Notes

  • The "collision detecting" SHA-1 implementation shipped with 2.13.2 was still broken on some platforms. Update to the upstream code again to take their fix.
  • The 'diff-highlight' program (in contrib/) has been restructured for easier reuse by an external project 'diff-so-fancy'.
  • "git mergetool" learned to work around a wrapper MacOS X adds around underlying meld.
  • An example in documentation that does not work in multi worktree configuration has been corrected.
  • The pretty-format specifiers like '%h', '%t', etc. had an optimization that no longer works correctly. In preparation/hope of getting it correctly implemented, first discard the optimization that is broken.
  • The code to pick up and execute command alias definition from the configuration used to switch to the top of the working tree and then come back when the expanded alias was executed, which was unnecessarilyl complex. Attempt to simplify the logic by using the early-config mechanism that does not chdir around.
  • "git add -p" were updated in 2.12 timeframe to cope with custom core.commentchar but the implementation was buggy and a metacharacter like $ and * did not work.
  • Fix a recent regression to "git rebase -i" and add tests that would have caught it and others.
  • An unaligned 32-bit access in pack-bitmap code ahs been corrected.
  • Tighten error checks for invalid "git apply" input.
  • The split index code did not honor core.sharedrepository setting correctly.
  • The Makefile rule in contrib/subtree for building documentation learned to honour USE_ASCIIDOCTOR just like the main documentation set does.
  • A few tests that tried to verify the contents of push certificates did not use 'git rev-parse' to formulate the line to look for in the certificate correctly.
  • After "git branch --move" of the currently checked out branch, the code to walk the reflog of HEAD via "log -g" and friends incorrectly stopped at the reflog entry that records the renaming of the branch.
  • The rewrite of "git branch --list" using for-each-ref's internals that happened in v2.13 regressed its handling of color.branch.local; this has been fixed.

Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
