Git v1.7.8.1 Release Notes
==========================
-Fixes since v1.7.8.1
---------------------
+Fixes since v1.7.8
+------------------
* In some codepaths (notably, checkout and merge), the ignore patterns
recorded in $GIT_DIR/info/exclude were not honored. They now are.
- * After fetching from a remote that has very long refname, the reporting
- output could have corrupted by overrunning a static buffer.
+ * "git apply --check" did not error out when given an empty input
+ without any patch.
+
+ * "git archive" mistakenly allowed remote clients to ask for commits
+ that are not at the tip of any ref.
* "git checkout" and "git merge" treated in-tree .gitignore and exclude
file in $GIT_DIR/info/ directory inconsistently when deciding which
untracked files are ignored and expendable.
+ * LF-to-CRLF streaming filter used when checking out a large-ish blob
+ fell into an infinite loop with a rare input.
+
+ * The function header pattern for files with "diff=cpp" attribute did
+ not consider "type *funcname(type param1,..." as the beginning of a
+ function.
+
+ * The error message from "git diff" and "git status" when they fail
+ to inspect changes in submodules did not report which submodule they
+ had trouble with.
+
+ * After fetching from a remote that has very long refname, the reporting
+ output could have corrupted by overrunning a static buffer.
+
+ * "git pack-objects" avoids creating cyclic dependencies among deltas
+ when seeing a broken packfile that records the same object in both
+ the deflated form and as a delta.
+
Also contains minor fixes and documentation updates.
