+Git v1.7.11.4 Release Notes
+Fixes since v1.7.11.3
+ * "$GIT_DIR/COMMIT_EDITMSG" file that is used to hold the commit log
+ message user edits was not documented.
+ * The advise() function did not use varargs correctly to format
+ its message.
+ * When "git am" failed, old timers knew to check .git/rebase-apply/patch
+ to see what went wrong, but we never told the users about it.
+ * "git commit-tree" learned a more natural "-p <parent> <tree>" order
+ of arguments long time ago, but recently forgot it by mistake.
+ * "git diff --no-ext-diff" did not output anything for a typechange
+ filepair when GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF is in effect.
+ * In 1.7.9 era, we taught "git rebase" about the raw timestamp format
+ but we did not teach the same trick to "filter-branch", which rolled
+ a similar logic on its own.
+ * When "git submodule add" clones a submodule repository, it can get
+ confused where to store the resulting submodule repository in the
+ superproject's .git/ directory when there is a symbolic link in the
+ path to the current directory.
+Also contains minor typofixes and documentation updates.
