Git v1.7.7.2 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.7.7.1

* We used to drop error messages from libcurl on certain kinds of

* Error report from smart HTTP transport, when the connection was
broken in the middle of a transfer, showed a useless message on
a corrupt packet.

* "git fetch --prune" was unsafe when used with refspecs from the
command line.

* The attribute mechanism did not use case insensitive match when
core.ignorecase was set.

* "git bisect" did not notice when it failed to update the working tree
to the next commit to be tested.

* "git config --bool --get-regexp" failed to separate the variable name
and its value "true" when the variable is defined without "= true".

* "git remote rename $a $b" were not careful to match the remote name
against $a (i.e. source side of the remote nickname).

* "git mergetool" did not use its arguments as pathspec, but as a path to
the file that may not even have any conflict.

* "git diff --[num]stat" used to use the number of lines of context
different from the default, potentially giving different results from
"git diff | diffstat" and confusing the users.

* "git pull" and "git rebase" did not work well even when GIT_WORK_TREE is
set correctly with GIT_DIR if the current directory is outside the working

* "git send-email" did not honor the configured hostname when restarting
the HELO/EHLO exchange after switching TLS on.

* "gitweb" used to produce a non-working link while showing the contents
of a blob, when JavaScript actions are enabled.
