With magit 1.4.1, I have magit-auto-revert-mode set to t. When I visit a file in a buffer, make a change and save, then call magit-status and run magit-discard-item on the modified file, then switch back to the buffer, I would expect not to see the change, ie, I'd expect the buffer to have been reverted since I discarded the change. But that's not the case. I still see the change. Is this the expected behavior or a bug?
That's a known issue when using Magit 1.4.1 together with Emacs 24.5. It was fixed on
master a few weeks ago and I have now also created a release,
1.4.2, which includes that fix.
NOTE: Magit 2.1.0 has been released, replacing the mode
magit-auto-revert-mode with the option
2.1.0 does not have the issue that
1.4.1. had on Emacs
