Updates since v1.7.0
+ * Some commands (e.g. svn and http interfaces) that interactively ask
+ password can be told to use an external program given via GIT_ASKPASS.
+ * Color values given to "color.<cmd>.<slot>" configuration can now have
+ more than one attributes (e.g. "bold ul").
+ * "git apply --whitespace=fix" didn't work well when an early patch in
+ a patch series adds trailing blank lines and a later one depended on
+ such a block of blank lines at the end.
+ * "git am" learned "--keep-cr" option to handle inputs that are
+ mixture of changes to files with and without CRLF line endings.
* "git cvsimport" learned -R option to leave revision mapping between
CVS revisions and resulting git commits.
* "git for-each-ref" learned %(symref), %(symref:short) and %(flag)
+ * "git hash-object --stdin-paths" can take "--no-filters" option now.
+ * "git init" can be told to look at init.templatedir configuration
+ variable (obviously that has to come from either /etc/gitconfig or
+ $HOME/.gitconfig).
* "git grep" learned "--no-index" option, to search inside contents that
are not managed by git.
* "git grep" learned --color=auto/always/never.
- * "git hash-object --stdin-paths" can take "--no-filters" option now.
+ * "git grep" learned to paint filename and line-number in colors.
+ * "git merge-file" learned to use custom conflict marker size and also use
+ the "union merge" behaviour.
+ * "git notes" command has been rewritten in C and learned quite a
+ many commands.
* "git request-pull" identifies the commit the request is relative to in
a more readable way.
+ * "git reset" learned "--keep" option that lets you discard commits
+ near the tip while preserving your local changes in a way similar
+ to how "git checkout branch" does.
* "git svn" should work better when interacting with repositories
with CRLF line endings.
