Subject[ANNOUNCE] Git v2.12.1
The latest maintenance release Git v2.12.1 is now available at
the usual places.

The tarballs are NOT YET found at:

but hopefully will be in a few days (I am having trouble reaching

The following public repositories all have a copy of the 'v2.12.1'

Git v2.12.1 Release Notes

Fixes since v2.12

* Reduce authentication round-trip over HTTP when the server supports
just a single authentication method. This also improves the
behaviour when Git is misconfigured to enable http.emptyAuth
against a server that does not authenticate without a username
(i.e. not using Kerberos etc., which makes http.emptyAuth

* Windows port wants to use OpenSSL's implementation of SHA-1
routines, so let them.

* Add 32-bit Linux variant to the set of platforms to be tested with
Travis CI.

* When a redirected http transport gets an error during the
redirected request, we ignored the error we got from the server,
and ended up giving a not-so-useful error message.

* The patch subcommand of "git add -i" was meant to have paths
selection prompt just like other subcommand, unlike "git add -p"
directly jumps to hunk selection. Recently, this was broken and
"add -i" lost the paths selection dialog, but it now has been

* Git v2.12 was shipped with an embarrassing breakage where various
operations that verify paths given from the user stopped dying when
seeing an issue, and instead later triggering segfault.

* The code to parse "git log -L..." command line was buggy when there
are many ranges specified with -L; overrun of the allocated buffer
has been fixed.

* The command-line parsing of "git log -L" copied internal data
structures using incorrect size on ILP32 systems.

Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
