[ANNOUNCE] Git v2.8.2

Junio C Hamano
The latest maintenance release Git v2.8.2 is now available at
the usual places.

The tarballs are found at:

    https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/

The following public repositories all have a copy of the 'v2.8.2'
tag and the 'maint' branch that the tag points at:

  url = https://kernel.googlesource.com/pub/scm/git/git
  url = git://repo.or.cz/alt-git.git
  url = git://git.sourceforge.jp/gitroot/git-core/git.git
  url = git://git-core.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/git-core/git-core
  url = https://github.com/gitster/git

Git v2.8.2 Release Notes
========================

Fixes since v2.8.1
------------------

 * The embedded args argv-array in the child process is used to build
   the command line to run pack-objects instead of using a separate
   array of strings.

 * Bunch of tests on "git clone" has been renumbered for better
   organization.

 * The tests that involve running httpd leaked the system-wide
   configuration in /etc/gitconfig to the tested environment.

 * "index-pack --keep=<msg>" was broken since v2.1.0 timeframe.

 * "git config --get-urlmatch", unlike other variants of the "git
   config --get" family, did not signal error with its exit status
   when there was no matching configuration.

 * The "--local-env-vars" and "--resolve-git-dir" options of "git
   rev-parse" failed to work outside a repository when the command's
   option parsing was rewritten in 1.8.5 era.

 * Fetching of history by naming a commit object name directly didn't
   work across remote-curl transport.

 * A small memory leak in an error codepath has been plugged in xdiff
   code.

 * strbuf_getwholeline() did not NUL-terminate the buffer on certain
   corner cases in its error codepath.

 * The startup_info data, which records if we are working inside a
   repository (among other things), are now uniformly available to Git
   subcommand implementations, and Git avoids attempting to touch
   references when we are not in a repository.

 * "git mergetool" did not work well with conflicts that both sides
   deleted.

 * "git send-email" had trouble parsing alias file in mailrc format
   when lines in it had trailing whitespaces on them.

 * When "git merge --squash" stopped due to conflict, the concluding
   "git commit" failed to read in the SQUASH_MSG that shows the log
   messages from all the squashed commits.

 * "git merge FETCH_HEAD" dereferenced NULL pointer when merging
   nothing into an unborn history (which is arguably unusual usage,
   which perhaps was the reason why nobody noticed it).

 * Build updates for MSVC.

 * "git diff -M" used to work better when two originally identical
   files A and B got renamed to X/A and X/B by pairing A to X/A and B
   to X/B, but this was broken in the 2.0 timeframe.

 * "git send-pack --all <there>" was broken when its command line
   option parsing was written in the 2.6 timeframe.

 * When running "git blame $path" with unnormalized data in the index
   for the path, the data in the working tree was blamed, even though
   "git add" would not have changed what is already in the index, due
   to "safe crlf" that disables the line-end conversion.  It has been
   corrected.

Also contains minor documentation updates and code clean-ups.

Hi all,

I considered releasing Git for Windows v2.8.2 today, too. However, I
decided to delay the release for a couple of days, for a couple of
reasons:

- I expect an update of the Git Credential Manager in the next few days.

- OpenSSL is slated to receive critical updates on Tuesday and I plan to
  incorporate these into Git for Windows' next version, too.

I will also use version 2.8.2 as an excuse to ship with support for the
extra HTTP headers configured via `http.extraheader`, which I hoped to
get into Git v2.8.2, too, because I'd like the feature to be available on
Linux and MacOSX, too.

In short: the tentative release date of Git for Windows v2.8.2 is
Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016.

Stay tuned,
Johannes

I am not sure if a new feature should go to the maintenance tracks.

Thanks.  I do not think there is anything ultra-urgent in 2.8.2
relative to 2.8.1, and synchronizing your release with the need on
the Windows platform side sound very sensible.
