  1. [ANNOUNCE] GIT 1.5.4.1

    The latest maintenance release GIT 1.5.4.1 is available at the
    usual places:

    http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/

    git-1.5.4.1.tar.{gz,bz2} (tarball)
    git-htmldocs-1.5.4.1.tar.{gz,bz2} (preformatted docs)
    git-manpages-1.5.4.1.tar.{gz,bz2} (preformatted docs)
    RPMS/$arch/git-*-1.5.4.1-1.$arch.rpm (RPM)

    Among a handful of documentation patches, there are a few true
    bugfixes.

    * An entry in the .gitattributes file that names a pattern in a
    subdirectory of the directory it is in did not match
    correctly (e.g. pattern "b/*.c" in "a/.gitattributes" should
    match "a/b/foo.c" but it didn't).

    * "git-commit -C $tag" used to work but rewrite in C done in
    1.5.4 broke it, which this release fixes.

    * Customized color specification was parsed incorrectly when
    numeric color values are used.

    Gerrit Pape (1):
    INSTALL: git-merge no longer uses cpio

    GIT v1.5.4.2 Release Notes
    ==========================

    Fixes since v1.5.4
    ------------------

    * The configuration parser was not prepared to see string
    valued variables misspelled as boolean and segfaulted.

    * Temporary files left behind due to interrupted object
    transfers were not cleaned up with "git prune".

    * "git config --unset" was confused when the unset variables
    were spelled with continuation lines in the config file.

    * The merge message detection in "git cvsimport" did not catch
    a message that began with "Merge...".

    * "git status" suggests "git rm --cached" for unstaging the
    earlier "git add" before the initial commit.

    * "git status" output was incorrect during a partial commit.

    * "git bisect" refused to start when the HEAD was detached.

    * "git bisect" allowed a wildcard character in the commit
    message expanded while writing its log file.

    * Manual pages were not formatted correctly with docbook xsl
    1.72; added a workaround.

    * "git-commit -C $tag" used to work but rewrite in C done in
    1.5.4 broke it. This was fixed in 1.5.4.1.

    * An entry in the .gitattributes file that names a pattern in a
    subdirectory of the directory it is in did not match
    correctly (e.g. pattern "b/*.c" in "a/.gitattributes" should
    match "a/b/foo.c" but it didn't). This was fixed in 1.5.4.1.

    * Customized color specification was parsed incorrectly when
    numeric color values are used. This was fixed in 1.5.4.1.

    * http transport misbehaved when linked with curl-gnutls.
