Git 2.33 Release Notes
+Backward compatibility notes
+ * The "-m" option in "git log -m" that does not specify which format,
+ if any, of diff is desired did not have any visible effect; it now
+ implies some form of diff (by default "--patch") is produced.
+ You can disable the diff output with "git log -m --no-patch", but
+ then there probably isn't much point in passing "-m" in the first
+ place ;-).
Updates since Git 2.32
UI, Workflows & Features
+ * "git send-email" learned the "--sendmail-cmd" command line option
+ and the "sendemail.sendmailCmd" configuration variable, which is a
+ more sensible approach than the current way of repurposing the
+ "smtp-server" that is meant to name the server to instead name the
+ command to talk to the server.
+ * The "-m" option in "git log -m" that does not specify which format,
+ if any, of diff is desired did not have any visible effect; it now
+ implies some form of diff (by default "--patch") is produced.
Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
+ * The code to handle the "--format" option in "for-each-ref" and
+ friends made too many string comparisons on %(atom)s used in the
+ format string, which has been corrected by converting them into
+ enum when the format string is parsed.
+ * Use the hashfile API in the codepath that writes the index file to
+ reduce code duplication.
+ * Repeated rename detections in a sequence of mergy operations have
+ been optimize out.
