+Git v1.7.11.5 Release Notes
+Fixes since v1.7.11.4
+ * The Makefile rule to create assembly output (primarily for
+ debugging purposes) did not create it next to the source.
+ * On some architectures, "block-sha1" did not compile correctly
+ when compilers inferred alignment guarantees from our source we
+ did not intend to make.
+ * When talking to a remote running ssh on IPv6 enabled host, whose
+ address is spelled as "[HOST]:PORT", we did not parse the address
+ correctly and failed to connect.
+ * git-blame.el (in compat/) have been updated to use Elisp more
+ correctly.
+ * "git checkout <branchname>" to come back from a detached HEAD state
+ incorrectly computed reachability of the detached HEAD, resulting
+ in unnecessary warnings.
+ * "git mergetool" did not support --tool-help option to give the list
+ of supported backends, like "git difftool" does.
+Also contains minor typofixes and documentation updates.
