|| ||[ANNOUNCE] GIT 1.2.2|
|| ||Sun, 19 Feb 2006 00:56:42 -0800|
The latest maintenance release GIT 1.2.2 is available at the
Carl Worth fixed a longstanding annoyance of failed clone
leaving a half-built cloned directory. Contributions from
people new to the list are much appreciated. Long timers have
just leaned to live with these inconveniences, but I expect such
rough edges will be rounded out quickly as we gain more wider
The much talked about pack performance enhancement is not in
this release. In principle, 1.2.X series are supposed to be
bugfix only, so I can justifiably be lazy and keep things that
way, but we _could_ argue that the old pack-object had a
performance bug ;-).
We will decide what to do after it hits the master branch. I
think pack-object is important enough to be conservative about,
but at the same time its performance is veriy critical for the
public git server, so as it proves stable we probably would want
to have it on kernel.org.
Changes since v1.2.1 are as follows:
Trap exit to clean up created directory if clone fails.
Abstract test_create_repo out for use in tests.
Prevent git-upload-pack segfault if object cannot be found
archimport: remove files from the index before adding/updating
git-rev-parse: Fix --short= option parsing
Document --short and --git-dir in git-rev-parse(1)
Fix retries in git-cvsimport
Make git-reset delete empty directories
