JGit/New and Noteworthy/4.5



  • Push implementation of option strings.

Example usage:

   $ ./jgit push \
     --push-option "" \
     --push-option "<arbitrary string>" \
     origin HEAD:refs/for/master

Push options were also added to cgit

  • Packet logging for JGit

Imitate the packet tracing feature from C Git. Unlike C Git, use the log4j log level setting instead of the GIT_TRACE_PACKET environment variable to enable tracing. Use as follows: 1. Enable tracing by adding the lines, stderr
   to org.eclipse.jgit.pgm/resources/

2. mvn package 3. org.eclipse.jgit.pgm/target/jgit \

       ls-remote git:// 2>&1 | less

Then the output provides a trace of packets sent and received over the wire

  • Shallow fetch/clone: Make --depth mean the total history depth
  • cgit changed the --depth parameter to mean the total depth of history rather than the depth of ancestors to be returned. JGit still uses the latter meaning, so update it to match cgit.
  • Shallow fetch: Respect "shallow" lines
  • ReceivePack: report protocol parsing failures on channel 3
  • Push: Report fatal server errors during pack writing
  • Add configureJSch() method to allow configuration of JSch objects
  • Add support for post-commit hooks
  • Enhance ResetCommand to allow disabling reflog update

JGit Command Line

  • Added a clean command.
  • Tag command: implement option -d for deleting tags


  • improve exception handling in LfsProtocolServlet
