Packages changed: git (2.16.3 -> 2.17.0) perl-YAML (1.25 -> 1.26)
=== Details ===
==== git ==== Version update (2.16.3 -> 2.17.0) Subpackages: git-core git-cvs git-daemon git-email git-gui git-svn git-web gitk
- git 2.17.0: * "diff" family of commands learned "--find-object=<object-id>" option to limit the findings to changes that involve the named object. * "git format-patch" learned to give 72-cols to diffstat, which is consistent with other line length limits the subcommand uses for its output meant for e-mails. * The log from "git daemon" can be redirected with a new option; one relevant use case is to send the log to standard error (instead of syslog) when running it from inetd. * "git rebase" learned to take "--allow-empty-message" option. * "git am" has learned the "--quit" option, in addition to the existing "--abort" option; having the pair mirrors a few other commands like "rebase" and "cherry-pick". * "git worktree add" learned to run the post-checkout hook, just like "git clone" runs it upon the initial checkout. * "git tag" learned an explicit "--edit" option that allows the message given via "-m" and "-F" to be further edited. * "git fetch --prune-tags" may be used as a handy short-hand for getting rid of stale tags that are locally held. * The new "--show-current-patch" option gives an end-user facing way to get the diff being applied when "git rebase" (and "git am") stops with a conflict. * "git add -p" used to offer "/" (look for a matching hunk) as a choice, even there was only one hunk, which has been corrected. Also the single-key help is now given only for keys that are enabled (e.g. help for '/' won't be shown when there is only one hunk). * Since Git 1.7.9, "git merge" defaulted to --no-ff (i.e. even when the side branch being merged is a descendant of the current commit, create a merge commit instead of fast-forwarding) when merging a tag object. This was appropriate default for integrators who pull signed tags from their downstream contributors, but caused an unnecessary merges when used by downstream contributors who habitually "catch up" their topic branches with tagged releases from the upstream. Update "git merge" to default to --no-ff only when merging a tag object that does *not* sit at its usual place in refs/tags/ hierarchy, and allow fast-forwarding otherwise, to mitigate the problem. * "git status" can spend a lot of cycles to compute the relation between the current branch and its upstream, which can now be disabled with "--no-ahead-behind" option. * "git diff" and friends learned funcname patterns for Go language source files. * "git send-email" learned "--reply-to=<address>" option. * Funcname pattern used for C# now recognizes "async" keyword. * In a way similar to how "git tag" learned to honor the pager setting only in the list mode, "git config" learned to ignore the pager setting when it is used for setting values (i.e. when the purpose of the operation is not to "show").
