* Some people feel the default set of colors used by "git log --graph"

+ submodule "B" used to be left in a strange state. The logic to

+ was ignored when checking the submodule out for the first time and

+ path in the superproject's index.
+ * The command line completion (in contrib/) learned that
+ "git diff --submodule=" can take "diff" as a recently added option.
+ * The "core.logAllRefUpdates" that used to be boolean has been
+ enhanced to take 'always' as well, to record ref updates to refs
+ other than the ones that are expected to be updated (i.e. branches,
+ remote-tracking branches and notes).
