GIT v1.5.3.5 Release Notes
==========================
 
Fixes since v1.5.3.4
--------------------
 
 * Comes with git-gui 0.8.4.
 
 * "git-config" silently ignored options after --list; now it will
   error out with a usage message.
 
 * "git-config --file" failed if the argument used a relative path
   as it changed directories before opening the file.
 
 * "git-config --file" now displays a proper error message if it
   cannot read the file specified on the command line.
 
 * "git-config", "git-diff", "git-apply" failed if run from a
   subdirectory with relative GIT_DIR and GIT_WORK_TREE set.
 
 * "git-blame" crashed if run during a merge conflict.
 
 * "git-add -i" did not handle single line hunks correctly.
 
 * "git-rebase -i" and "git-stash apply" failed if external diff
   drivers were used for one or more files in a commit.  They now
   avoid calling the external diff drivers.
 
 * "git-log --follow" did not work unless diff generation (e.g. -p)
   was also requested.
 
 * "git-log --follow -B" did not work at all.  Fixed.
 
 * "git-log -M -B" did not correctly handle cases of very large files
   being renamed and replaced by very small files in the same commit.
 
 * "git-log" printed extra newlines between commits when a diff
   was generated internally (e.g. -S or --follow) but not displayed.
 
 * "git-push" error message is more helpful when pushing to a
   repository with no matching refs and none specified.
 
 * "git-push" now respects + (force push) on wildcard refspecs,
   matching the behavior of git-fetch.
 
 * "git-filter-branch" now updates the working directory when it
   has finished filtering the current branch.
 
 * "git-instaweb" no longer fails on Mac OS X.
 
 * "git-cvsexportcommit" didn't always create new parent directories
   before trying to create new child directories.  Fixed.
 
 * "git-fetch" printed a scary (but bogus) error message while
   fetching a tag that pointed to a tree or blob.  The error did
   not impact correctness, only user perception.  The bogus error
   is no longer printed.
 
 * "git-ls-files --ignored" did not properly descend into non-ignored
   directories that themselves contained ignored files if d_type
   was not supported by the filesystem.  This bug impacted systems
   such as AFS.  Fixed.
 
 * Git segfaulted when reading an invalid .gitattributes file.  Fixed.
 
 * post-receive-email example hook fixed was fixed for
   non-fast-forward updates.
 
 * Documentation updates for supported (but previously undocumented)
   options of "git-archive" and "git-reflog".
 
 * "make clean" no longer deletes the configure script that ships
   with the git tarball, making multiple architecture builds easier.
 
 * "git-remote show origin" spewed a warning message from Perl
   when no remote is defined for the current branch via
   branch.<name>.remote configuration settings.
 
 * Building with NO_PERL_MAKEMAKER excessively rebuilt contents
   of perl/ subdirectory by rewriting perl.mak.
 
 * http.sslVerify configuration settings were not used in scripted
   Porcelains.
 
 * "git-add" leaked a bit of memory while scanning for files to add.
 
 * A few workarounds to squelch false warnings from recent gcc have
   been added.
 
 * "git-send-pack $remote frotz" segfaulted when there is nothing
   named 'frotz' on the local end.
 
 * "git-rebase -interactive" did not handle its "--strategy" option
   properly.
