+Git v2.4.1 Release Notes
+Fixes since v2.4
+ * The usual "git diff" when seeing a file turning into a directory
+ showed a patchset to remove the file and create all files in the
+ directory, but "git diff --no-index" simply refused to work. Also,
+ when asked to compare a file and a directory, imitate POSIX "diff"
+ and compare the file with the file with the same name in the
+ directory, instead of refusing to run.
+ * The default $HOME/.gitconfig file created upon "git config --global"
+ that edits it had incorrectly spelled and
+ entries in it.
+ * "git commit --date=now" or anything that relies on approxidate lost
+ the daylight-saving-time offset.
+ * "git cat-file bl $blob" failed to barf even though there is no
+ object type that is "bl".
+ * Teach the codepaths that read .gitignore and .gitattributes files
+ that these files encoded in UTF-8 may have UTF-8 BOM marker at the
+ beginning; this makes it in line with what we do for configuration
+ files already.
+ * Access to objects in repositories that borrow from another one on a
+ slow NFS server unnecessarily got more expensive due to recent code
+ becoming more cautious in a naive way not to lose objects to pruning.
+ * We avoid setting core.worktree when the repository location is the
+ ".git" directory directly at the top level of the working tree, but
+ the code misdetected the case in which the working tree is at the
+ root level of the filesystem (which arguably is a silly thing to
+ do, but still valid).
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
