Git 1.9.1v1.9.1
The version numbering scheme has changed since Git 1.9 and we dropped the third dewey-decimal from the traditional numbering (e.g. both 1.8.4 and 1.8.5 were major feature releases). This release 1.9.1 is the first maintenance relase for Git 1.9. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

+Git v1.9.1 Release Notes
+Fixes since v1.9.0
+ * "git clean -d pathspec" did not use the given pathspec correctly
+ and ended up cleaning too much.
+ * "git difftool" misbehaved when the repository is bound to the
+ working tree with the ".git file" mechanism, where a textual file
+ ".git" tells us where it is.
+ * "git push" did not pay attention to branch.*.pushremote if it is
+ defined earlier than remote.pushdefault; the order of these two
+ variables in the configuration file should not matter, but it did
+ by mistake.
+ * Codepaths that parse timestamps in commit objects have been
+ tightened.
+ * "git diff --external-diff" incorrectly fed the submodule directory
+ in the working tree to the external diff driver when it knew it is
+ the same as one of the versions being compared.
+ * "git reset" needs to refresh the index when working in a working
+ tree (it can also be used to match the index to the HEAD in an
+ otherwise bare repository), but it failed to set up the working
+ tree properly, causing GIT_WORK_TREE to be ignored.
+ * "git check-attr" when working on a repository with a working tree
+ did not work well when the working tree was specified via the
+ --work-tree (and obviously with --git-dir) option.
+ * "merge-recursive" was broken in 1.7.7 era and stopped working in
+ an empty (temporary) working tree, when there are renames
+ involved. This has been corrected.
+ * "git rev-parse" was loose in rejecting command line arguments
+ that do not make sense, e.g. "--default" without the required
+ value for that option.
+ * include.path variable (or any variable that expects a path that
+ can use ~username expansion) in the configuration file is not a
+ boolean, but the code failed to check it.
+ * "git diff --quiet -- pathspec1 pathspec2" sometimes did not return
+ correct status value.
+ * Attempting to deepen a shallow repository by fetching over smart
+ HTTP transport failed in the protocol exchange, when no-done
+ extension was used. The fetching side waited for the list of
+ shallow boundary commits after the sending end stopped talking to
+ it.
+ * Allow "git cmd path/", when the 'path' is where a submodule is
+ bound to the top-level working tree, to match 'path', despite the
+ extra and unnecessary trailing slash (such a slash is often
+ given by command line completion).
