    The latest maintenance release Git is now available at the

    Also the following public repositories all have a copy of the v1.7.9.3

    Git v1.7.9.3 Release Notes

    Fixes since v1.7.9.2

    * "git p4" (in contrib/) submit the changes to a wrong place when the
    "--use-client-spec" option is set.

    * The config.mak.autogen generated by optional autoconf support tried
    to link the binary with -lintl even when libintl.h is missing from
    the system.

    * When the filter driver exits before reading the content before the
    main git process writes the contents to be filtered to the pipe to
    it, the latter could be killed with SIGPIPE instead of ignoring
    such an event as an error.

    * "git add --refresh <pathspec>" used to warn about unmerged paths
    outside the given pathspec.

    * The bulk check-in codepath in "git add" streamed contents that
    needs smudge/clean filters without running them, instead of punting
    and delegating to the codepath to run filters after slurping
    everything to core.

    * "git branch --with $that" assumed incorrectly that the user will never
    ask the question with nonsense value in $that.

    * "git bundle create" produced a corrupt bundle file upon seeing
    commits with excessively long subject line.

    * When a remote helper exits before reading the blank line from the
    main git process to signal the end of commands, the latter could be
    killed with SIGPIPE. Instead we should ignore such event as a

    * The commit log template given with "git merge --edit" did not have
    a short instructive text like what "git commit" gives.

    * "git rev-list --verify-objects -q" omitted the extra verification
    it needs to do over "git rev-list --objects -q" by mistake.

    * "gitweb" used to drop warnings in the log file when "heads" view is
    accessed in a repository whose HEAD does not point at a valid

    * An invalid regular expression pattern given by an end user made
    "gitweb" to return garbled response.

    Also contains minor fixes and documentation updates.
