+Git v2.5.5 Release Notes
+========================
+
+Fixes since v2.5.4
+------------------
+
+ * Bugfix patches were backported from the 'master' front to plug heap
+ corruption holes, to catch integer overflow in the computation of
+ pathname lengths, and to get rid of the name_path API. Both of
+ these would have resulted in writing over an under-allocated buffer
+ when formulating pathnames while tree traversal.
