Git 2.19 Release Notes

Updates since v2.18

UI, Workflows & Features

 * "git diff" compares the index and the working tree.  For paths
   added with intent-to-add bit, the command shows the full contents
   of them as added, but the paths themselves were not marked as new
   files.  They are now shown as new by default.

   "git apply" learned the "--intent-to-add" option so that an
   otherwise working-tree-only application of a patch will add new
   paths to the index marked with the "intent-to-add" bit.

 * "git grep" learned the "--column" option that gives not \ 
just the
   line number but the column number of the hit.

 * The "-l" option in "git branch -l" is an unfortunate \ 
short-hand for
   "--create-reflog", but many users, both old and new, somehow expect
   it to be something else, perhaps "--list".  This step warns when \ 
   is used as a short-hand for "--create-reflog" and warns about the
   future repurposing of the it when it is used.

 * The userdiff pattern for .php has been updated.

 * The content-transfer-encoding of the message "git send-email" sends
   out by default was 8bit, which can cause trouble when there is an
   overlong line to bust RFC 5322/2822 limit.  A new option 'auto' to
   automatically switch to quoted-printable when there is such a line
   in the payload has been introduced and is made the default.

 * "git checkout" and "git worktree add" learned to honor
   checkout.defaultRemote when auto-vivifying a local branch out of a
   remote tracking branch in a repository with multiple remotes that
   have tracking branches that share the same names.
   (merge 8d7b558bae ab/checkout-default-remote later to maint).

 * "git grep" learned the "--only-matching" option.

 * "git rebase --rebase-merges" mode now handles octopus merges as

 * Add a server-side knob to skip commits in exponential/fibbonacci
   stride in an attempt to cover wider swath of history with a smaller
   number of iterations, potentially accepting a larger packfile
   transfer, instead of going back one commit a time during common
   ancestor discovery during the "git fetch" transaction.
   (merge 42cc7485a2 jt/fetch-negotiator-skipping later to maint).

 * A new configuration variable core.usereplacerefs has been added,
   primarily to help server installations that want to ignore the
   replace mechanism altogether.

 * Teach "git tag -s" etc. a few configuration variables (gpg.format
   that can be set to "openpgp" or "x509", and \ 
   that is used to specify what program to use to deal with the format)
   to allow x.509 certs with CMS via "gpgsm" to be used instead of
   openpgp via "gnupg".

 * Many more strings are prepared for l10n.

 * "git p4 submit" learns to ask its own pre-submit hook if it should
   continue with submitting.

 * The test performed at the receiving end of "git push" to prevent
   bad objects from entering repository can be customized via
   receive.fsck.* configuration variables; we now have gained a
   counterpart to do the same on the "git fetch" side, with
   fetch.fsck.* configuration variables.

 * "git pull --rebase=interactive" learned "i" as a \ 
short-hand for

 * "git instaweb" has been adjusted to run better with newer Apache on
   RedHat based distros.

 * "git range-diff" is a reimplementation of "git tbdiff" \ 
that lets us
   compare individual patches in two iterations of a topic.

 * The sideband code learned to optionally paint selected keywords at
   the beginning of incoming lines on the receiving end.

 * "git branch --list" learned to take the default sort order from the
   'branch.sort' configuration variable, just like "git tag --list"
   pays attention to 'tag.sort'.

 * "git worktree" command learned "--quiet" option to make \ 
it less

Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * The bulk of "git submodule foreach" has been rewritten in C.

 * The in-core "commit" object had an all-purpose "void \ 
*util" field,
   which was tricky to use especially in library-ish part of the
   code.  All of the existing uses of the field has been migrated to a
   more dedicated "commit-slab" mechanism and the field is eliminated.

 * A less often used command "git show-index" has been modernized.
   (merge fb3010c31f jk/show-index later to maint).

 * The conversion to pass "the_repository" and then \ 
   throughout the object access API continues.

 * Continuing with the idea to programatically enumerate various
   pieces of data required for command line completion, teach the
   codebase to report the list of configuration variables
   subcommands care about to help complete them.

 * Separate "rebase -p" codepath out of "rebase -i" \ 
implementation to
   slim down the latter and make it easier to manage.

 * Make refspec parsing codepath more robust.

 * Some flaky tests have been fixed.

 * Continuing with the idea to programmatically enumerate various
   pieces of data required for command line completion, the codebase
   has been taught to enumerate options prefixed with "--no-" to
   negate them.

 * Build and test procedure for netrc credential helper (in contrib/)
   has been updated.

 * Remove unused function definitions and declarations from ewah
   bitmap subsystem.

 * Code preparation to make "git p4" closer to be usable with Python 3.

 * Tighten the API to make it harder to misuse in-tree .gitmodules
   file, even though it shares the same syntax with configuration
   files, to read random configuration items from it.

 * "git fast-import" has been updated to avoid attempting to create
   delta against a zero-byte-long string, which is pointless.

 * The codebase has been updated to compile cleanly with -pedantic
   (merge 2b647a05d7 bb/pedantic later to maint).

 * The character display width table has been updated to match the
   latest Unicode standard.
   (merge 570951eea2 bb/unicode-11-width later to maint).

 * test-lint now looks for broken use of "VAR=VAL shell_func" in test

 * Conversion from uchar[40] to struct object_id continues.

 * Recent "security fix" to pay attention to contents of \ 
   while accepting "git push" was a bit overly strict than necessary,
   which has been adjusted.

 * "git fsck" learns to make sure the optional commit-graph file is in
   a sane state.

 * "git diff --color-moved" feature has further been tweaked.

 * Code restructuring and a small fix to transport protocol v2 during

 * Parsing of -L[<N>][,[<M>]] parameters "git blame" and \ 
"git log"
   take has been tweaked.

 * lookup_commit_reference() and friends have been updated to find
   in-core object for a specific in-core repository instance.

 * Various glitches in the heuristics of merge-recursive strategy have
   been documented in new tests.

 * "git fetch" learned a new option "--negotiation-tip" to \ 
limit the
   set of commits it tells the other end as "have", to reduce wasted
   bandwidth and cycles, which would be helpful when the receiving
   repository has a lot of refs that have little to do with the
   history at the remote it is fetching from.

 * For a large tree, the index needs to hold many cache entries
   allocated on heap.  These cache entries are now allocated out of a
   dedicated memory pool to amortize malloc(3) overhead.

 * Tests to cover various conflicting cases have been added for

 * Tests to cover conflict cases that involve submodules have been
   added for merge-recursive.

 * Look for broken "&&" chains that are hidden in subshell, many of
   which have been found and corrected.

 * The singleton commit-graph in-core instance is made per in-core
   repository instance.

 * "make DEVELOPER=1 DEVOPTS=pedantic" allows developers to compile
   with -pedantic option, which may catch more problematic program
   constructs and potential bugs.

 * Preparatory code to later add json output for telemetry data has
   been added.

 * Update the way we use Coccinelle to find out-of-style code that
   need to be modernised.

 * It is too easy to misuse system API functions such as strcat();
   these selected functions are now forbidden in this codebase and
   will cause a compilation failure.

 * Add a script (in contrib/) to help users of VSCode work better with
   our codebase.

 * The Travis CI scripts were taught to ship back the test data from
   failed tests.
   (merge aea8879a6a sg/travis-retrieve-trash-upon-failure later to maint).

 * The parse-options machinery learned to refrain from enclosing
   placeholder string inside a "<bra" and "ket>" pair \ 
   without PARSE_OPT_LITERAL_ARGHELP.  Existing help text for option
   arguments that are not formatted correctly have been identified and
   (merge 5f0df44cd7 rs/parse-opt-lithelp later to maint).

 * Noiseword "extern" has been removed from function decls in the
   header files.

 * A few atoms like %(objecttype) and %(objectsize) in the format
   specifier of "for-each-ref --format=<format>" can be filled \ 
   getting the full contents of the object, but just with the object
   header.  These cases have been optimized by calling
   oid_object_info() API (instead of reading and inspecting the data).

 * The end result of documentation update has been made to be
   inspected more easily to help developers.

 * The API to iterate over all objects learned to optionally list
   objects in the order they appear in packfiles, which helps locality
   of access if the caller accesses these objects while as objects are

 * Improve built-in facility to catch broken &&-chain in the tests.

 * The more library-ish parts of the codebase learned to work on the
   in-core index-state instance that is passed in by their callers,
   instead of always working on the singleton "the_index" instance.

 * A test prerequisite defined by various test scripts with slightly
   different semantics has been consolidated into a single copy and
   made into a lazily defined one.
   (merge 6ec633059a wc/make-funnynames-shared-lazy-prereq later to maint).

 * After a partial clone, repeated fetches from promisor remote would
   have accumulated many packfiles marked with .promisor bit without
   getting them coalesced into fewer packfiles, hurting performance.
   "git repack" now learned to repack them.

 * Partially revert the support for multiple hash functions to regain
   hash comparison performance; we'd think of a way to do this better
   in the next cycle.

 * "git help --config" (which is used in command line completion)
   missed the configuration variables not described in the main
   config.txt file but are described in another file that is included
   by it, which has been corrected.

 * The test linter code has learned that the end of here-doc mark
   "EOF" can be quoted in a double-quote pair, not just in a
   single-quote pair.

Log message:
Update git to 2.9.2.

Fixes since v2.9.1

 * A fix merged to v2.9.1 had a few tests that are not meant to be
   run on platforms without 64-bit long, which caused unnecessary
   test failures on them because we didn't detect the platform and
   skip them.  These tests are now skipped on platforms that they
   are not applicable to.

Fixes since v2.9

 * When "git daemon" is run without --[init-]timeout specified, a
   connection from a client that silently goes offline can hang around
   for a long time, wasting resources.  The socket-level KEEPALIVE has
   been enabled to allow the OS to notice such failed connections.

 * The commands in `git log` family take %C(auto) in a custom format
   string.  This unconditionally turned the color on, ignoring
   --no-color or with --color=auto when the output is not connected to
   a tty; this was corrected to make the format truly behave as

 * "git rev-list --count" whose walk-length is limited with "-n"
   option did not work well with the counting optimized to look at the
   bitmap index.

 * "git show -W" (extend hunks to cover the entire function, delimited
   by lines that match the "funcname" pattern) used to show the entire
   file when a change added an entire function at the end of the file,
   which has been fixed.

 * The documentation set has been updated so that literal commands,
   configuration variables and environment variables are consistently
   typeset in fixed-width font and bold in manpages.

 * "git svn propset" subcommand that was added in 2.3 days is
   documented now.

 * The documentation tries to consistently spell "GPG"; when
   referring to the specific program name, "gpg" is used.

 * "git reflog" stopped upon seeing an entry that denotes a branch
   creation event (aka "unborn"), which made it appear as if the
   reflog was truncated.

 * The git-prompt scriptlet (in contrib/) was not friendly with those
   who uses "set -u", which has been fixed.

 * A codepath that used alloca(3) to place an unbounded amount of data
   on the stack has been updated to avoid doing so.

 * "git update-index --add --chmod=+x file" may be usable as an escape
   hatch, but not a friendly thing to force for people who do need to
   use it regularly.  "git add --chmod=+x file" can be used instead.

 * Build improvements for gnome-keyring (in contrib/)

 * "git status" used to say "working directory" when it \ 
meant "working

 * Comments about misbehaving FreeBSD shells have been clarified with
   the version number (9.x and before are broken, newer ones are OK).

 * "git cherry-pick A" worked on an unborn branch, but "git
   cherry-pick A..B" didn't.

 * "git add -i/-p" learned to honor diff.compactionHeuristic
   experimental knob, so that the user can work on the same hunk split
   as "git diff" output.

 * "log --graph --format=" learned that "%>|(N)" \ 
specifies the width
   relative to the terminal's left edge, not relative to the area to
   draw text that is to the right of the ancestry-graph section.  It
   also now accepts negative N that means the column limit is relative
   to the right border.

 * The ownership rule for the piece of memory that hold references to
   be fetched in "git fetch" was screwy, which has been cleaned up.

 * "git bisect" makes an internal call to "git diff-tree" when
   bisection finds the culprit, but this call did not initialize the
   data structure to pass to the diff-tree API correctly.

 * Formats of the various data (and how to validate them) where we use
   GPG signature have been documented.

 * Fix an unintended regression in v2.9 that breaks "clone --depth"
   that recurses down to submodules by forcing the submodules to also
   be cloned shallowly, which many server instances that host upstream
   of the submodules are not prepared for.

 * Fix unnecessarily waste in the idiomatic use of ': ${VAR=default}'
   to set the default value, without enclosing it in double quotes.

 * Some platform-specific code had non-ANSI strict declarations of C
   functions that do not take any parameters, which has been

 * The internal code used to show local timezone offset is not
   prepared to handle timestamps beyond year 2100, and gave a
   bogus offset value to the caller.  Use a more benign looking
   +0000 instead and let "git log" going in such a case, instead
   of aborting.

 * One among four invocations of readlink(1) in our test suite has
   been rewritten so that the test can run on systems without the
   command (others are in valgrind test framework and t9802).

 * t/perf needs /usr/bin/time with GNU extension; the invocation of it
   is updated to "gtime" on Darwin.

 * A bug, which caused "git p4" while running under verbose mode to
   report paths that are omitted due to branch prefix incorrectly, has
   been fixed; the command said "Ignoring file outside of prefix" for
   paths that are _inside_.

 * The top level documentation "git help git" still pointed at the
   documentation set hosted at now-defunct google-code repository.
   Update it to point to https://git.github.io/htmldocs/git.html

Also contains minor documentation updates and code clean-ups.

Changes 2.5.0:
UI, Workflows & Features

 * The bash completion script (in contrib/) learned a few options that
   "git revert" takes.

 * Whitespace breakages in deleted and context lines can also be
   painted in the output of "git diff" and friends with the new
   --ws-error-highlight option.

 * List of commands shown by "git help" are grouped along the workflow
   elements to help early learners.

 * "git p4" now detects the filetype (e.g. binary) correctly even when
   the files are opened exclusively.

 * git p4 attempts to better handle branches in Perforce.

 * "git p4" learned "--changes-block-size <n>" to read \ 
the changes in
   chunks from Perforce, instead of making one call to "p4 changes"
   that may trigger "too many rows scanned" error from Perforce.

 * More workaround for Perforce's row number limit in "git p4".

 * Unlike "$EDITOR" and "$GIT_EDITOR" that can hold the path \ 
to the
   command and initial options (e.g. "/path/to/emacs -nw"), 'git p4'
   did not let the shell interpolate the contents of the environment
   variable that name the editor "$P4EDITOR" (and "$EDITOR", \ 
   This release makes it in line with the rest of Git, as well as with

 * A new short-hand <branch>@{push} denotes the remote-tracking branch
   that tracks the branch at the remote the <branch> would be pushed

 * "git show-branch --topics HEAD" (with no other arguments) did not
   do anything interesting.  Instead, contrast the given revision
   against all the local branches by default.

 * A replacement for contrib/workdir/git-new-workdir that does not
   rely on symbolic links and make sharing of objects and refs safer
   by making the borrowee and borrowers aware of each other.

   Consider this as still an experimental feature; its UI is still
   likely to change.

 * Tweak the sample "store" backend of the credential helper to honor
   XDG configuration file locations when specified.

 * A heuristic we use to catch mistyped paths on the command line
   "git <cmd> <revs> <pathspec>" is to make sure \ 
that all the non-rev
   parameters in the later part of the command line are names of the
   files in the working tree, but that means "git grep $str -- \*.c"
   must always be disambiguated with "--", because nobody sane will
   create a file whose name literally is asterisk-dot-see.  Loosen the
   heuristic to declare that with a wildcard string the user likely
   meant to give us a pathspec.

 * "git merge FETCH_HEAD" learned that the previous "git \ 
fetch" could
   be to create an Octopus merge, i.e. recording multiple branches
   that are not marked as "not-for-merge"; this allows us to lose an
   old style invocation "git merge <msg> HEAD $commits..." in the
   implementation of "git pull" script; the old style syntax can now
   be deprecated (but not removed yet).

 * Filter scripts were run with SIGPIPE disabled on the Git side,
   expecting that they may not read what Git feeds them to filter.
   We however treated a filter that does not read its input fully
   before exiting as an error.  We no longer do and ignore EPIPE
   when writing to feed the filter scripts.

   This changes semantics, but arguably in a good way.  If a filter
   can produce its output without fully consuming its input using
   whatever magic, we now let it do so, instead of diagnosing it
   as a programming error.

 * Instead of dying immediately upon failing to obtain a lock, the
   locking (of refs etc) retries after a short while with backoff.

 * Introduce http.<url>.SSLCipherList configuration variable to tweak
   the list of cipher suite to be used with libcURL when talking with
   https:// sites.

 * "git subtree" script (in contrib/) used "echo -n" to produce
   progress messages in a non-portable way.

 * "git subtree" script (in contrib/) does not have --squash option
   when pushing, but the documentation and help text pretended as if
   it did.

 * The Git subcommand completion (in contrib/) no longer lists credential
   helpers among candidates; they are not something the end user would
   invoke interactively.

 * The index file can be taught with "update-index --untracked-cache"
   to optionally remember already seen untracked files, in order to
   speed up "git status" in a working tree with tons of cruft.

 * "git mergetool" learned to drive WinMerge as a backend.

 * "git upload-pack" that serves "git fetch" can be told to serve
   commits that are not at the tip of any ref, as long as they are
   reachable from a ref, with uploadpack.allowReachableSHA1InWant
   configuration variable.
