+Git v2.6.4 Release Notes
+========================
+
+Fixes since v2.6.3
+------------------
+
+ * The "configure" script did not test for -lpthread correctly, which
+ upset some linkers.
+
+ * Add support for talking http/https over socks proxy.
+
+ * Portability fix for Windows, which may rewrite $SHELL variable using
+ non-POSIX paths.
+
+ * We now consistently allow all hooks to ignore their standard input,
+ rather than having git complain of SIGPIPE.
+
+ * Fix shell quoting in contrib script.
+
+ * Test portability fix for a topic in v2.6.1.
+
+ * Allow tilde-expansion in some http config variables.
+
+ * Give a useful special case "diff/show --word-diff-regex=." as an
+ example in the documentation.
+
+ * Fix for a corner case in filter-branch.
+
+ * Make git-p4 work on a detached head.
+
+ * Documentation clarification for "check-ignore" without "--verbose".
+
+ * Just like the working tree is cleaned up when the user cancelled
+ submission in P4Submit.applyCommit(), clean up the mess if "p4
+ submit" fails.
+
+ * Having a leftover .idx file without corresponding .pack file in
+ the repository hurts performance; "git gc" learned to prune them.
+
+ * The code to prepare the working tree side of temporary directory
+ for the "dir-diff" feature forgot that symbolic links need not be
+ copied (or symlinked) to the temporary area, as the code already
+ special cases and overwrites them. Besides, it was wrong to try
+ computing the object name of the target of symbolic link, which may
+ not even exist or may be a directory.
+
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
+clean-ups.
