Fixes since v2.6.3 ------------------ * The "configure" script did not test for -lpthread correctly, which upset some linkers. * Add support for talking http/https over socks proxy. * Portability fix for Windows, which may rewrite $SHELL variable using non-POSIX paths. * We now consistently allow all hooks to ignore their standard input, rather than having git complain of SIGPIPE. * Fix shell quoting in contrib script. * Test portability fix for a topic in v2.6.1. * Allow tilde-expansion in some http config variables. * Give a useful special case "diff/show --word-diff-regex=." as an example in the documentation. * Fix for a corner case in filter-branch. * Make git-p4 work on a detached head.
