Dune Dependency





1.11.1 (2017-07-25)

  • [git-unix] Fix linking issue of the ogit binary on some package configurations (#225, @samoht)

1.11.0 (2016-06-01)

  • Add ogit add-commit-parent to add a new parent to a given commit (#208, @samoht)

  • port to jbuilder (#209, @samoht)

  • port to mtime 1.0 (#212, @dinosaure and @samoht)

  • use Decompress instead of camlzip (#211, @dinosaure and @samoht)

1.10.1 (2017-04-15)

  • Improve API docs (#201, @olleolleolle)

  • Compat with cmdliner 1.0 (#202, @samoht)

  • Fix typos and links in docs (@smeruelo and @olleolleolle)

1.10.0 (2017-02-15)

  • Adapt to Mirage3 (@samoht, @avsm, @yomimono, @hannesm)

  • Add IO.test_and_set to automatically update references (#185, @samoht)

  • Better Windows support (#187, @samoht)

    • unix: Translate Git references into valid Windows filenames

    • fix/work-around upstream issues to make the tests pass on Windows

  • Split the package into 4 packages: git, git-http, git-unix and git-mirage (#189, @samoht)

1.9.3 (2016-11-09)

  • Turn a bunch of info message into debug statements (#169, @samoht)

1.9.2 (2016-10-16)

  • Do not depend on ocaml-crc anymore: less C code means, easier to port to other MirageOS backends (#166, @g2p)

1.9.1 (2016-10-04)

  • Cache all intermediate values when expending packed values. This speeds-up pack access quite a lot in practice, especially when the pack files are big (#163)

1.9.0 (2016-09-30)

  • Use safe-string (#160, @samoht)

  • Support camlzip 1.06 (#160, @samoht)

  • Use topkg, remove pack (#158, @samoht)

1.8.0 (2016-05-03)

  • References can point to non-commit hashes (#123, @samoht)

  • Rename Git.SHA into Git.Hash (@samoht)

  • Remove Git.Sync.populate but add Git.Sync.clone to replace the previous fetch+populate (#122, @samoht)

  • Fix the API so that references can point to any kind of hashes (#123, @samoht)

  • Fix duplicated references when mixing packed and loose references (#124, @samoht)

  • Use astring, logs and fmt (@samoht)

  • Add Store.size. Before, the only way to get the size of a file was to decompress the whole thing. The main win comes from getting the size of raw packed objects without decompressing. (#143, @talex5)

  • Workaround a memory leak in lwt: See ocsigen/lwt#229, which caused IO.rec_file and thus the watch mechanism on Unix to leak memory (#146, @samoht)

  • Fix performance regression when reading large files (#147, @chambart)

1.7.3 (2016-02-19)

  • Git_unix now works on MinGW

1.7.2 (2016-01-21)

  • Do not mmap files, as there is no way to easily control the unmap of bigarrays. This remove EMFILE errors under load (#133, @talex5)

  • Fix comparison of entries in the index file. This fix a random issue which might happen when entries in a pack file are checkout and updated (@samoht)

1.7.1 (2015-08-10)

  • Support cohtpp 0.19.1. (#119, @rgrinberg)

  • Revert API break for the Sync functor. Now still takes only a Store.S as parameter. (#120)

1.7.0 (2015-08-06)

  • Changes to the Search API:

    • Remove find_exn

    • the type t has a new case Tree_root to represent tree roots

    • the type path is now structured (not a list of strings anymore). this removes the confusing semantics of empty strings in paths.

  • Changes to the Global_graph API:

    • closure takes an optional full argument to work over commit objects only

    • All the arguments of pack are labelled and its result type has changed.

    • Add keys to return the topological sort of keys in the graph.

  • Improve the size of pack files received when fetching (#115)

    • advertise the fact that ocaml-git clients support ofs-delta and thin-pack

    • Compute a minimal set of haves to send to the server after the discovery phase, where we already know all the server references (#114)

  • Unpack shallow pack files after a fetch

  • Full support for shallow packs (#81)

  • During fetch, we now respect the "allow-reachable-sha1-in-want" server (non-)capability. A proper error is reported to the client if that's not the case.

  • Parametrize the codebase over the Inflate implementation. Useful to change the inflate algorithm (or to not use any at all, which would be what we want for big files and/or for efficient writes) and to simplify the port to other backends. Store.S implementations now expose their Inflate implementation.

  • Parametrize the codebase over the SHA implementation. Useful to change the SHA algorihm (the unix backend provides SHA256) or simplify the port to other backends (the mirage backend uses a pure OCaml implementation extracted from uuidm). Store.S implementations now expose their Digest implementation (#68)

  • Better sync API (#113)

    • Change the arguments of Sync.fetch

    • Remove Sync.clone

    • Add Sync.populate to be called after a fetch to properly populate the local Git repository (similar to what git clone does).

    • Add ogit clone --no-checkout and make ogit clone --bare more similar to the same git command.

  • Support Github http(s) URLs without .git (#111)

  • Add a dot_git optional parameter to Store.create to specify where the Git metadata should be stored (default is still <root>/.git). This is useful to properly support bare repositories (#110)

  • Full support for 32 bit platform (ie. continue the patch started in 1.6.2).

  • Rework the Git.Pack and Git.Pack_index API to speed-up random access.

  • Add a Git.SHA.Array module to work with contiguous arrays of SHA1.

  • Rename Git.SHA.lenght to Git.SHA.hex_length to avoid confusion.

  • Expose Git.SHA.of_short_hex to create short hashes. Git.SHA.of_hex now only accept 40 characters hexa-decimal strings.

  • Improve the output of ogit clone by showing progress when the pack file is downloaded and when the delta are resolved.

1.6.2 (2015-07-16)

  • Support 32 bit platform by avoiding creating large strings. This also improve the performance of reading and synchronizin large pack files (#103, #105 @gregtatcam)

1.6.1 (2015-07-14)

  • Fix a bug in ogit pull using the smart HTTP protocol when the HTTP temporary buffer could sometimes be overfill.

  • Avoid closing twice the same fd in the smart HTTP protocol.

  • Avoid the GC to close a fd while we are still using a channel built on top of it -- this affects the smart HTTP protocol only.

  • Add an opam file for the mirage-git package.

1.6.0 (2015-07-11)

  • Allow some references to contain pointer to other references (#96)

  • Improve the support for 32bit architectures (#97)

  • Add Reference.pp_head_contents and Reference.equal_head_contents.

  • Remove Store.clear and replace it by Memory.clear, Memory.clear_all and FS.remove. This let users have a finer control over the memory consumption of the program over time (related to #90)

  • Rename all pp_hum functions into pp.

  • Fix regression in Sync.fetch and add unit-tests (running only in slow mode).

  • Fix reading of .git/HEAD when the contents is a commit hash.

  • Depends on Stringext for all the extra string function needed.

  • Remove the OGITTMPDIR and alway store temp files under git/tmp (mirage/irmin#132)

1.4.8 (2015-02-04)

  • Git.write_index now takes an optional index argument

  • Index entries should be fixed alphabetically

  • Remove raw printf (#60)

  • More flexibility on where to write temp files. The directory name can be configured by write calls, and the default is OGITTMPDIR if set, then Filename.get_temp_dir_name -- as it was in 1.4.5, see #51

  • Support packed-refs files, to read references packed by git gc (reported by Gregory Tsipenyuk)

  • Fix the filesystem backend when TMPDIR is not on the same partition as the Git repository (#51, patch from @vklquevs)

1.4.4 (2015-01-12)

  • Support the smart HTTP Git protocol (#26)

  • Best-effort creation of files when expanding the index into the filesystem: Skip the invalid filenames and continue. Users are expected to sanitize their filenames if they want to use a non-bare repository (#11)

  • Overwrite changed file when expanding the index into the filesystem (#4)
