* Warn programmers about pretend_object_file() that allows the code
to tentatively use in-core objects.
+ * The way "git pack-objects" reuses objects stored in existing pack
+ to generate its result has been improved.
+ * The transport protocol version 2 becomes the default one.
+ * Traditionally, we avoided threaded grep while searching in objects
+ (as opposed to files in the working tree) as accesses to the object
+ layer is not thread-safe. This limitation is getting lifted.
+ * "git rebase -i" (and friends) used to unnecessarily check out the
+ tip of the branch to be rebased, which has been corrected.
+ * A low-level API function get_oid(), that accepts various ways to
+ name an object, used to issue end-user facing error messages
+ without l10n, which has been updated to be translatable.
+ * Unneeded connectivity check is now disabled in a partial clone when
+ fetching into it.
+ * Some rough edges in the sparse-checkout feature, especially around
+ the cone mode, have been cleaned up.
+ * The diff-* plumbing family of subcommands now pay attention to the
+ diff.wsErrorHighlight configuration, which has been ignored before;
+ this allows "git add -p" to also show the whitespace problems to
+ the end user.
+ * Some codepaths were given a repository instance as a parameter to
+ work in the repository, but passed the_repository instance to its
+ callees, which has been cleaned up (somewhat).
