* Continuing "git rebase -i" was also very confused when the user left
some staged changes in the index after "edit".
+* "git rebase -i" now honors the pre-rebase hook, just like the
+ other rebase implementations "git rebase" and "git rebase -m".
* Behaviour of "git diff --quiet" was inconsistent with "diff --exit-code"
with the output redirected to /dev/null.
+* "git diff --no-index" on binary files no longer outputs a bogus
+ "diff --git" header line.
+* Hunk headers in "git diff" default to using extended regular
+ expressions, fixing some of the internal patterns on non-GNU
+ platforms.
+* New config "diff.*.xfuncname" exposes extended regular expressions
+ for user specified hunk header patterns.
* "git stash apply sash@{1}" was fixed to error out. Prior versions
would have applied stash@{0} incorrectly.
+* "git stash apply" now offers a better suggestion on how to continue
+ if the working tree is currently dirty.
* "git for-each-ref --format=%(subject)" fixed for commits with no
no newline in the message body.
* "git remote" fixed to protect printf from user input.
+* "git remote show -v" now displays all URLs of a remote.
* "git checkout -q" once again suppresses the locally modified file list.
+* "git clone -q", "git fetch -q" asks remote side to not send
+ progress messages, actually making their output quiet.
* Cross-directory renames are no longer used when creating packs. This
allows more graceful behavior on filesystems like sshfs.
* Stale temporary files under $GIT_DIR/objects/pack are now cleaned up
automatically by "git prune".
+* "git merge" once agrain removes directories after the last file has
+ been removed from it during the merge.
+* "git blame -C -C" no longer segfaults while trying to pass blame if
+ it encounters a submodule reference.
+* "git svn" fixed to display an error message when 'set-tree' failed,
+ instead of a Perl compile error.
+* "git submodule" fixed to handle checking out a different commit
+ than HEAD after initializing the submodule.
+* The "git commit" error message when there are still unmerged
+ files present was clarified to match "git write-tree".
+* Some segfaults due to uncaught NULL pointers were fixed multiple
+ tools such as apply, reset, update-index.
+* Solaris bulds now default to OLD_ICONV=1 to avoid compile warnings.
* "" tests relied on unnecessarily more recent version of Perl.
* "gitweb" triggered undef warning on commits without log messages.
+* "gitweb" triggered undef warnings on missing trees.
+* "gitweb" now removes PATH_INFO from its URLs so users don't have
+ to manually set the url in the gitweb configuration.
+* Bash completion removed support for legacy "git-fetch", "git-push"
+ and "git-pull" as these are no longer installed. Dashless form
+ ("git fetch") is still however supported.
Many other documentation updates.
