Eclipse JGit™: Java implementation of Git 6.2.0
- 552840 Teach JGit to handle external diff/merge tools defined in .gitattributes
- 356832 Support external diff and merge tools, see https://git-scm.com/docs/git-mergetool
- Adapt diff- and merge tool code for PGM and EGit usage
- Add availability check of pre-defined tools
- Add filtering with help of DirCacheCheckout.getContent()
- Add mergetool merge feature (execute external tool)
- Add command line support for "git mergetool"
- Add config reader for user-defined mergetools
- Add difftool compare feature (execute external tool)
- 571390 [sshd] Better user feedback on authentication failure
- Fetch: Introduce negative refspecs.
- 579325 Use git config core.commentChar when committing, creating merge conflict messages and creating and editing squash messages.
- 579325 CommitConfig: add support for core.commentChar
- 546567 [push, lfs] Tell the pre-push hook whether the push is a dry run
- 577948 RewriteGenerator: Fully buffering of input is no longer necessary
- 578020 Lazy loading of .lfsconfig
- Fix connection leak for smart http connections
- 579445 Remove stray files (probes or lock files) created by background threads
- 579676 HTTP Smart: set correct HTTP status on error
- 579550 De-couple ServiceLoader calls from class loading
- 579550 GpgSigner: prevent class lock inversion on the default signer
- CommitCommand: call GpgSigner.getDefault() only if indeed signing
- DirCacheCheckout: use a LinkedHashMap instead of HashMap. This guarantees that updates are checked out in git order, which is important for LFS if a .lfsconfig file is used
- 579116 Re-try reading a file when there are concurrent writes and the filesystem does not support atomic rename
- 575629 [sideband] Ensure last bit of progress channel is written
- 544769 LsRemoteCommand: apply url.*.insteadOf to ensure remote URI is translated if used without repository
