+Git v2.12.1 Release Notes
+=========================
+
+Fixes since v2.12
+-----------------
+
+ * Reduce authentication round-trip over HTTP when the server supports
+ just a single authentication method. This also improves the
+ behaviour when Git is misconfigured to enable http.emptyAuth
+ against a server that does not authenticate without a username
+ (i.e. not using Kerberos etc., which makes http.emptyAuth
+ pointless).
+
+ * Windows port wants to use OpenSSL's implementation of SHA-1
+ routines, so let them.
+
+ * Add 32-bit Linux variant to the set of platforms to be tested with
+ Travis CI.
+
+ * When a redirected http transport gets an error during the
+ redirected request, we ignored the error we got from the server,
+ and ended up giving a not-so-useful error message.
+
+ * The patch subcommand of "git add -i" was meant to have paths
+ selection prompt just like other subcommand, unlike "git add -p"
+ directly jumps to hunk selection. Recently, this was broken and
+ "add -i" lost the paths selection dialog, but it now has been
+ fixed.
+
+ * Git v2.12 was shipped with an embarrassing breakage where various
+ operations that verify paths given from the user stopped dying when
+ seeing an issue, and instead later triggering segfault.
+
+ * The code to parse "git log -L..." command line was buggy when there
+ are many ranges specified with -L; overrun of the allocated buffer
+ has been fixed.
+
+ * The command-line parsing of "git log -L" copied internal data
+ structures using incorrect size on ILP32 systems.
+
+Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
