Git 2.31 Release Notes
======================
 
Updates since v2.30
-------------------
 
UI, Workflows & Features
 
 * The "--format=%(trailers)" mechanism gets enhanced to make it
   easier to design output for machine consumption.
 
 * When a user does not tell "git pull" to use rebase or merge, the
   command gives a loud message telling a user to choose between
   rebase or merge but creates a merge anyway, forcing users who would
   want to rebase to redo the operation.  Fix an early part of this
   problem by tightening the condition to give the message---there is
   no reason to stop or force the user to choose between rebase or
   merge if the history fast-forwards.
 
 * The configuration variable 'core.abbrev' can be set to 'no' to
   force no abbreviation regardless of the hash algorithm.
 
 * "git rev-parse" can be explicitly told to give output as absolute
   or relative path with the `--path-format=(absolute|relative)` option.
 
 * Bash completion (in contrib/) update to make it easier for
   end-users to add completion for their custom "git" subcommands.
 
 
Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
 
 * A 3-year old test that was not testing anything useful has been
   corrected.
 
 * Retire more names with "sha1" in it.
 
 * The topological walk codepath is covered by new trace2 stats.
