+Git v1.7.6 Release Notes (draft)
+========================
+
+Updates since v1.7.5
+--------------------
+
+ * Various git-svn updates.
+
+ * Updates the way content tags are handled in gitweb. Also adds
+ a UI to choose common timezone for displaying the dates.
+
+ * Similar to branch names, tagnames that begin with "-" are now
+ disallowed.
+
+ * Clean-up of the C part of i18n (but not l10n---please wait)
+ continues.
+
+ * The scripting part of the codebase is getting prepared for i18n/l10n.
+
+ * Pushing and pulling from a repository with large number of refs that
+ point to identical commits are optimized by not listing the same commit
+ during the common ancestor negotiation exchange with the other side.
+
+ * Adding a file larger than core.bigfilethreshold (defaults to 1/2 Gig)
+ using "git add" will send the contents straight to a packfile without
+ having to hold it and its compressed representation both at the same
+ time in memory.
+
+ * Processes spawned by "[alias] <name> = !process" in the configuration
+ can inspect GIT_PREFIX environment variable to learn where in the
+ working tree the original command was invoked.
+
+ * A magic pathspec ":/" tells a command that limits its operation to
+ the current directory when ran from a subdirectory to work on the
+ entire working tree. In general, ":/path/to/file" would be relative
+ to the root of the working tree hierarchy.
+
+ After "git reset --hard; edit Makefile; cd t/", "git add -u" would
+ be a no-op, but "git add -u :/" would add the updated contents of
+ the Makefile at the top level. If you want to name a path in the
+ current subdirectory whose unusual name begins with ":/", you can
+ name it by "./:/that/path" or by "\:/that/path".
+
+ * "git blame" learned "--abbrev[=<n>]" option to control the minimum
+ number of hexdigits shown for commit object names.
+
+ * "git blame" learned "--line-porcelain" that is less efficient but is
+ easier to parse.
+
+ * Aborting "git commit --interactive" discards updates to the index
+ made during the interctive session.
+
+ * "git commit" learned a "--patch" option to directly jump to the
+ per-hunk selection UI of the interactive mode.
+
+ * "git diff -C -C" used to disable the rename detection entirely when
+ there are too many copy candidate paths in the tree; now it falls
+ back to "-C" when doing so would keep the copy candidate paths
+ under the rename detection limit.
+
+ * "git diff" and its family of commands learned --dirstat=0 to show
+ directories that contribute less than 0.1% of changes.
+
+ * "git diff" and its family of commands learned --dirstat=lines mode to
+ assess damage to the directory based on number of lines in the patch
+ output, not based on the similarity numbers.
+
+ * "git format-patch" learned "--quiet" option to suppress the output of
+ the names of generated files.
+
+ * "git format-patch" quotes people's names when it has RFC822 special
+ characters in it, e.g. "Junio C. Hamano" <jch@example.com>. Earlier
+ it was up to the user to do this when using its output.
+
+ * "git log" and friends learned a new "--notes" option to replace the
+ "--show-notes" option. Unlike "--show-notes", "--notes=<ref>" does
+ not imply showing the default notes.
+
+ * They also learned a log.abbrevCommit configuration variable to augment
+ the --abbrev-commit command line option.
+
+ * "git ls-remote" learned "--exit-code" option to consider it a
+ different kind of error when no remote ref to be shown.
+
+ * "git merge" learned "-" as a short-hand for "the previous branch", just
+ like the way "git checkout -" works.
+
+ * "git merge" uses "merge.ff" configuration variable to decide to always
+ create a merge commit (i.e. --no-ff, aka merge.ff=no), refuse to create
+ a merge commit (i.e. --ff-only, aka merge.ff=only). Setting merge.ff=yes
+ (or not setting it at all) restores the default behaviour of allowing
+ fast-forward to happen when possible.
+
+ * p4-import (from contrib) learned a new option --preserve-user.
+
+ * "git rebase" that does not specify on top of which branch to rebase
+ the current branch now uses @{upstream} of the current branch.
+
+ * "git rev-list --count" used with "--cherry-mark" counts the cherry-picked
+ commits separately, producing more a useful output.
+
+ * "git submodule update" learned "--force" option to get rid of local
+ changes in submodules and replace them with the up-to-date version.
+
+ * "git status" and friends ignore .gitmodules file while the file is
+ still in a conflicted state during a merge, to avoid using information
+ that is not final and possibly corrupt with conflict markers.
+
+Also contains various documentation updates and minor miscellaneous
+changes.
+
+
+Fixes since v1.7.5
+------------------
+
+Unless otherwise noted, all the fixes in 1.7.5.X maintenance track are
+included in this release.
+
+ * The single-key mode of "git add -p" was easily fooled into thinking
+ that it was told to add everthing ('a') when up-arrow was pressed by
+ mistake.
+ (merge tr/add-i-no-escape later)
+
+ * "git config" used to choke with an insanely long line.
+ (merge ef/maint-strbuf-init later)

+Choosing textconv versus external diff
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+If you want to show differences between binary or specially-formatted
+blobs in your repository, you can choose to use either an external diff
+command, or to use textconv to convert them to a diff-able text format.
+Which method you choose depends on your exact situation.
+
+The advantage of using an external diff command is flexibility. You are
+not bound to find line-oriented changes, nor is it necessary for the
+output to resemble unified diff. You are free to locate and report
+changes in the most appropriate way for your data format.
+
+A textconv, by comparison, is much more limiting. You provide a
+transformation of the data into a line-oriented text format, and git
+uses its regular diff tools to generate the output. There are several
+advantages to choosing this method:
+
+1. Ease of use. It is often much simpler to write a binary to text
+ transformation than it is to perform your own diff. In many cases,
+ existing programs can be used as textconv filters (e.g., exif,
+ odt2txt).
+
+2. Git diff features. By performing only the transformation step
+ yourself, you can still utilize many of git's diff features,
+ including colorization, word-diff, and combined diffs for merges.
+
+3. Caching. Textconv caching can speed up repeated diffs, such as those
+ you might trigger by running `git log -p`.
+
+
