git-annex 7.20190615 released with these changes

  • Fixed bug that caused git-annex to fail to add a file when another git-annex process cleaned up the temp directory it was using.
  • Makefile: Added install-completions to install target.
  • Added the ability to run one job per CPU (core), by setting annex.jobs=cpus, or using option --jobs=cpus or -Jcpus.
  • Honor preferred content of a special remote when exporting trees to it; unwanted files are filtered out of the tree that is exported.
  • Importing from a special remote honors its preferred content too; unwanted files are not imported. But, some preferred content expressions can't be checked before files are imported, and trying to import with such an expression will fail.
  • Don't try to import .git directories from special remotes, because git does not support storing git repositories inside a git repository.
  • Improve shape of commit tree when importing from unversioned special remotes.
  • init: When the repository already has a description, don't change it.
  • describe: When run with no description parameter it used to set the description to "", now it will error out.
  • Android: Improve installation process when the user's login shell is not bash.
  • When a remote is configured to be readonly, don't allow changing what's exported to it.
  • Renamed annex.security.allowed-http-addresses to annex.security.allowed-ip-addresses because it is not really specific to the http protocol, also limiting eg, git-annex's use of ftp. The old name for the config will still work.
  • Add back support for ftp urls, which was disabled as part of the fix for security hole CVE-2018-10857 (except for configurations which enabled curl and bypassed public IP address restrictions). Now it will work if allowed by annex.security.allowed-ip-addresses.
  • Avoid a delay at startup when concurrency is enabled and there are rsync or gcrypt special remotes, which was caused by git-annex opening a ssh connection to the remote too early.
