    Git v1.8.0.1 Release Notes

    Fixes since v1.8.0

    * The configuration parser had an unnecessary hardcoded limit on
    variable names that was not checked consistently.

    * The "say" function in the test scaffolding incorrectly allowed
    "echo" to interpret "\a" as if it were a C-string asking for a
    BEL output.

    * "git mergetool" feeds /dev/null as a common ancestor when dealing
    with an add/add conflict, but p4merge backend cannot handle
    it. Work it around by passing a temporary empty file.

    * "git log -F -E --grep='<ere>'" failed to use the given <ere>
    pattern as extended regular expression, and instead looked for the
    string literally.

    * "git grep -e pattern <tree>" asked the attribute system to read
    "<tree>:.gitattributes" file in the working tree, which was

    * A symbolic ref refs/heads/SYM was not correctly removed with "git
    branch -d SYM"; the command removed the ref pointed by SYM

    * Earlier we fixed documentation to hyphenate "remote-tracking branch"
    to clarify that these are not a remote entity, but unhyphenated
    spelling snuck in to a few places since then.

    * "git pull --rebase" run while the HEAD is detached tried to find
    the upstream branch of the detached HEAD (which by definition
    does not exist) and emitted unnecessary error messages.

    * The refs/replace hierarchy was not mentioned in the
    repository-layout docs.

    * Sometimes curl_multi_timeout() function suggested a wrong timeout
    value when there is no file descriptors to wait on and the http
    transport ended up sleeping for minutes in select(2) system call.
    A workaround has been added for this.

    * Various rfc2047 quoting issues around a non-ASCII name on the
    From: line in the output from format-patch have been corrected.

    * "git diff -G<pattern>" did not honor textconv filter when looking
    for changes.

    * Bash completion script (in contrib/) did not correctly complete a
    lazy "git checkout $name_of_remote_tracking_branch_that_is_unique"
    command line.

    * RSS feed from "gitweb" had a xss hole in its title output.

    * "git config --path $key" segfaulted on "[section] key" (a boolean
    "true" spelled without "=", not "[section] key = true").

    * "git checkout -b foo" while on an unborn branch did not say
    "Switched to a new branch 'foo'" like other cases.

    Also contains other minor fixes and documentation updates.
