git-annex 6.20170519 released with these changes

  • Ssh password prompting improved when using -J for concurrency. When ssh connection caching is enabled (and when GIT_ANNEX_USE_GIT_SSH is not set), only one ssh password prompt will be made per host, and only one ssh password prompt will be made at a time.
  • When built with concurrent-output 1.9, ssh password prompts will no longer interfere with the -J display.
  • Removed dependency on MissingH, instead depending on the split library.
  • Progress is displayed for transfers of files of unknown size.
  • Work around bug in git 2.13.0 involving GIT_COMMON_DIR that broke merging changes into adjusted branches.
