git-annex 7.20191218 released with these changes

  • git-lfs: The url provided to initremote/enableremote will now be stored in the git-annex branch, allowing enableremote to be used without an url. initremote --sameas can be used to add additional urls.
  • git-lfs: When there's a git remote with an url that's known to be used for git-lfs, automatically enable the special remote.
  • sync, assistant: Pull and push from git-lfs remotes.
  • Fix bug that made bare repos be treated as non-bare when --git-dir was used.
  • inprogress: Support --key.
  • Sped up many git-annex commands that operate on many files, by avoiding reserialization of keys. find is 7% faster; whereis is 3% faster; and git-annex get when all files are already present is 5% faster
  • Stop displaying rsync progress, and use git-annex's own progress display for local-to-local repo transfers.
  • benchmark: Changed --databases to take a parameter specifiying the size of the database to benchmark.
  • benchmark --databases: Display size of the populated database.
  • benchmark --databases: Improve the "addAssociatedFile (new)" benchmark to really add new values, not overwriting old values.
  • Windows: Fix handling of changes to time zone. (Used to work but was broken in version 7.20181031.)
