The latest feature release GIT 1.4.3 is available at the usual places: http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/ User visible changes, other than bugfixes, since v188.8.131.52 are: - upload-tar is deprecated but not removed; we now have upload-archive –format=tar and –format=zip instead. - ftp:// protocol is supported the same way as http:// and https:// - git-diff paginates its output to the tty by default. If this irritates you, using LESS=RF might help. - git-cherry-pick does not leave often useless “cherry-picked from” message. - git-merge-recursive was replaced by a rewritten implemention in C. The original Python implementation is available as “recursive-old” strategy for now, but hopefully we can remove it in the next cycle. - git-daemon can do name based virtual hosting. - git-daemon can serve tar and zip snapshots. - many gitweb tweaks and cleanups. - git-apply –reverse, –reject. - git-diff –color highlights whitespace errors. - git-diff –stat can be taught to use non-default widths. - git-status can use colors. - many more commands are built-in.
and two days later:
The latest maintenance release GIT 184.108.40.206 is available at the usual places: http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/ This is primarily to work around changes in the recent GNU diff output format. Also it contains irritation fix for “git diff” which now paginates its output by default.
