+Git v1.7.8.1 Release Notes
+==========================
+
+Fixes since v1.7.8.1
+--------------------
+
+ * In some codepaths (notably, checkout and merge), the ignore patterns
+ recorded in $GIT_DIR/info/exclude were not honored. They now are.
+
+ * After fetching from a remote that has very long refname, the reporting
+ output could have corrupted by overrunning a static buffer.
+
+ * "git checkout" and "git merge" treated in-tree .gitignore and exclude
+ file in $GIT_DIR/info/ directory inconsistently when deciding which
+ untracked files are ignored and expendable.
+
+Also contains minor fixes and documentation updates.
