+Git v1.7.7.1 Release Notes
+==========================
+
+Fixes since v1.7.7
+------------------
+
+ * On some BSD systems, adding +s bit on directories is detrimental
+ (it is not necessary on BSD to begin with). "git init --shared"
+ has been updated to take this into account without extra makefile
+ settings on platforms the Makefile knows about.
+
+ * After incorrectly written third-party tools store a tag object in
+ HEAD, git diagnosed it as a repository corruption and refused to
+ proceed in order to avoid spreading the damage. We now gracefully
+ recover from such a situation by pretending as if the commit that
+ is pointed at by the tag were in HEAD.
+
+ * "git apply --whitespace=error" did not bother to report the exact
+ line number in the patch that introduced new blank lines at the end
+ of the file.
+
+ * "git apply --index" did not check corrupted patch.
+
+ * "git checkout $tree $directory/" resurrected paths locally removed or
+ modified only in the working tree in $directory/ that did not appear
+ in $directory of the given $tree. They should have been kept intact.
+
+ * "git diff $tree $path" used to apply the pathspec at the output stage,
+ reading the whole tree, wasting resources.
+
+ * The code to check for updated submodules during a "git fetch" of the
+ superproject had an unnecessary quadratic loop.
+
+ * "git fetch" from a large bundle did not enable the progress output.
+
+ * When "git fsck --lost-and-found" found that an empty blob object in the
+ object store is unreachable, it incorrectly reported an error after
+ writing the lost blob out successfully.
+
+ * "git filter-branch" did not refresh the index before checking that the
+ working tree was clean.
+
+ * "git grep $tree" when run with multiple threads had an unsafe access to
+ the object database that should have been protected with mutex.
+
+ * The "--ancestry-path" option to "git log" and friends misbehaved in a
+ history with complex criss-cross merges and showed an uninteresting
+ side history as well.
+
+ * Test t1304 assumed LOGNAME is always set, which may not be true on
+ some systems.
+
+ * Tests with --valgrind failed to find "mergetool" scriptlets.
+
+ * "git patch-id" miscomputed the patch-id in a patch that has a line longer
+ than 1kB.
+
+ * When an "exec" insn failed after modifying the index and/or the working
+ tree during "rebase -i", we now check and warn that the changes need to
+ be cleaned up.

+Git v1.7.8 Release Notes (draft)
+================================
+
+Updates since v1.7.7
+--------------------
+
+ * Some git-svn, git-gui, git-p4 (in contrib) and msysgit updates.
+
+ * Updates to bash completion scripts.
+
+ * The build procedure has been taught to take advantage of computed
+ dependency automatically when the complier supports it.
+
+ * The date parser now accepts timezone designators that lack minutes
+ part and also has a colon between "hh:mm".
+
+ * The contents of the /etc/mailname file, if exists, is used as the
+ default value of the hostname part of the committer/author e-mail.
+
+ * "git am" learned how to read from patches generated by Hg.
+
+ * "git archive" talking with a remote repository can report errors
+ from the remote side in a more informative way.
+
+ * "git branch" learned an explicit --list option to ask for branches
+ listed, optionally with a glob matching pattern to limit its output.
+
+ * "git check-attr" learned "--cached" option to look at .gitattributes
+ files from the index, not from the working tree.
+
+ * Variants of "git cherry-pick" and "git revert" that take multiple
+ commits learned to "--continue".
+
+ * "git daemon" gives more human readble error messages to clients
+ using ERR packets when appropriate.
+
+ * Errors at the network layer is logged by "git daemon".
+
+ * "git diff" learned "--minimal" option to spend extra cycles to come
+ up with a minimal patch output.
+
+ * "git diff" learned "--function-context" option to show the whole
+ function as context that was affected by a change.
+
+ * "git difftool" can be told to skip launching the tool for a path by
+ answering 'n' to its prompt.
+
+ * "git fetch" learned to honor transfer.fsckobjects configuration to
+ validate the objects that were received from the other end, just like
+ "git receive-pack" (the receiving end of "git push") does.
+
+ * "git fetch" makes sure that the set of objects it received from the
+ other end actually completes the history before updating the refs.
+ "git receive-pack" (the receiving end of "git push") learned to do the
+ same.
+
+ * "git fetch" learned that fetching/cloning from a regular file on the
+ filesystem is not necessarily a request to unpack a bundle file; the
+ file could be ".git" with "gitdir: <path>" in it.
+
+ * "git for-each-ref" learned "%(contents:subject)", "%(contents:body)"
+ and "%(contents:signature)". The last one is useful for signed tags.
+
+ * "git grep" used to incorrectly pay attention to .gitignore files
+ scattered in the directory it was working in even when "--no-index"
+ option was used. It no longer does this. The "--exclude-standard"
+ option needs to be given to explicitly activate the ignore
+ mechanism.
+
+ * "git grep" learned "--untracked" option, where given patterns are
+ searched in untracked (but not ignored) files as well as tracked
+ files in the working tree, so that matches in new but not yet
+ added files do not get missed.
+
+ * The recursive merge backend no longer looks for meaningless
+ existing merges in submodules unless in the outermost merge.
+
+ * "git log" and friends learned "--children" option.
+
+ * "git ls-remote" learned to respond to "-h"(elp) requests.
+
+ * "git merge" learned the "--edit" option to allow users to edit the
+ merge commit log message.
+
+ * "git rebase -i" can be told to use special purpose editor suitable
+ only for its insn sheet via sequence.editor configuration variable.
+
+ * "git send-email" learned to respond to "-h"(elp) requests.
+
+ * "git send-email" allows the value given to sendemail.aliasfile to begin
+ with "~/" to refer to the $HOME directory.
+
+ * "git send-email" forces use of Authen::SASL::Perl to work around
+ issues between Authen::SASL::Cyrus and AUTH PLAIN/LOGIN.
+
+ * "git stash" learned "--include-untracked" option to stash away
+ untracked/ignored cruft from the working tree.
+
+ * "git submodule update" learned to honor "none" as the value for
+ submodule.<name>.update to specify that the named submodule should
+ not be checked out by default.
+
+ * When populating a new submodule directory with "git submodule init",
+ the $GIT_DIR metainformation directory for submodules is created inside
+ $GIT_DIR/modules/<name>/ directory of the superproject and referenced
+ via the gitfile mechanism. This is to make it possible to switch
+ between commits in the superproject that has and does not have the
+ submodule in the tree without re-cloning.
+
+ * "mediawiki" remote helper can interact with (surprise!) MediaWiki
+ with "git fetch" & "git push".
+
+ * "gitweb" leaked unescaped control characters from syntax hiliter
+ outputs.
+
+ * "gitweb" now has its own manual pages.
+
+
+Also contains other documentation updates and minor code cleanups.
+
+
+Fixes since v1.7.7
+------------------
+
+Unless otherwise noted, all fixes in the 1.7.7.X maintenance track are
+included in this release.
+
+ * We used to drop error messages from libcurl on certain kinds of
+ errors.
+ (merge be22d92eac8 jn/maint-http-error-message later to maint).
+
+ * Error report from smart HTTP transport, when the connection was
+ broken in the middle of a transfer, showed a useless message on
+ a corrupt packet.
+ (merge 6cdf022 sp/smart-http-failure later to maint).
+
+ * HTTP transport did not use pushurl correctly, and also did not tell
+ what host it is trying to authenticate with when asking for
+ credentials.
+ (merge deba493 jk/http-auth later to maint).
+
+ * "git branch -m/-M" advertised to update RENAME_REF ref in the
+ commit log message that introduced the feature but not anywhere in
+ the documentation, and never did update such a ref anyway. This
+ undocumented misfeature that did not exist has been excised.
+ (merge b0eab01 jc/maint-remove-renamed-ref later to maint).
+
+ * Adding many refs to the local repository in one go (e.g. "git fetch"
+ that fetches many tags) and looking up a ref by name in a repository
+ with too many refs were unnecessarily slow.
+ (merge 17d68a54d jp/get-ref-dir-unsorted later to maint).
+
+ * Report from "git commit" on untracked files was confused under
+ core.ignorecase option.
+ (merge 2548183b jk/name-hash-dirent later to maint).
+
+ * The attribute mechanism did not use case insensitive match when
+ core.ignorecase was set.
+ (merge 6eba621 bc/attr-ignore-case later to maint).
+
+ * "git bisect" did not notice when it failed to update the working tree
+ to the next commit to be tested.
+ (merge 1acf11717 js/bisect-no-checkout later to maint).
+
+ * "git config --bool --get-regexp" failed to separate the variable name
+ and its value "true" when the variable is defined without "= true".
+ (merge 880e3cc mm/maint-config-explicit-bool-display later to maint).
+
+ * "git remote rename $a $b" were not careful to match the remote name
+ against $a (i.e. source side of the remote nickname).
+ (merge b52d00aed mz/remote-rename later to maint).
+
+ * "git diff --[num]stat" used to use the number of lines of context
+ different from the default, potentially giving different results from
+ "git diff | diffstat" and confusing the users.
+ (merge f01cae918 jc/maint-diffstat-numstat-context later to maint).
+
+ * "git merge" did not understand ":/<pattern>" as a way to name a commit.
+
+ * "git mergetool" learned to use its arguments as pathspec, not a path to
+ the file that may not even have any conflict.
+ (merge 6d9990a jm/mergetool-pathspec later to maint).
+
+ * "git pull" and "git rebase" did not work well even when GIT_WORK_TREE is
+ set correctly with GIT_DIR if the current directory is outside the working
+ tree.
+ (merge 035b5bf jk/pull-rebase-with-work-tree later to maint).
+
+ " "git push" on the receiving end used to call post-receive and post-update
+ hooks for attempted removal of non-existing refs.
+ (merge 160b81ed ph/push-to-delete-nothing later to maint).
+
+ * "git send-email" did not honor the configured hostname when restarting
+ the HELO/EHLO exchange after switching TLS on.
+ (merge 155b940 md/smtp-tls-hello-again later to maint).
+
+ * "gitweb" used to produce a non-working link while showing the contents
+ of a blob, when JavaScript actions are enabled.
+ (merge 2b07ff3ff ps/gitweb-js-with-lineno later to maint).

+argv-array API
+==============
+
+The argv-array API allows one to dynamically build and store
+NULL-terminated lists. An argv-array maintains the invariant that the
+`argv` member always points to a non-NULL array, and that the array is
+always NULL-terminated at the element pointed to by `argv[argc]`. This
+makes the result suitable for passing to functions expecting to receive
+argv from main(), or the link:api-run-command.html[run-command API].
+
+The link:api-string-list.html[string-list API] is similar, but cannot be
+used for these purposes; instead of storing a straight string pointer,
+it contains an item structure with a `util` field that is not compatible
+with the traditional argv interface.
+
+Each `argv_array` manages its own memory. Any strings pushed into the
+array are duplicated, and all memory is freed by argv_array_clear().
+
+Data Structures
+---------------
+
+`struct argv_array`::
+
+ A single array. This should be initialized by assignment from
+ `ARGV_ARRAY_INIT`, or by calling `argv_array_init`. The `argv`
+ member contains the actual array; the `argc` member contains the
+ number of elements in the array, not including the terminating
+ NULL.
+
+Functions
+---------
+
+`argv_array_init`::
+ Initialize an array. This is no different than assigning from
+ `ARGV_ARRAY_INIT`.
+
+`argv_array_push`::
+ Push a copy of a string onto the end of the array.
+
+`argv_array_pushf`::
+ Format a string and push it onto the end of the array. This is a
+ convenience wrapper combining `strbuf_addf` and `argv_array_push`.
+
+`argv_array_clear`::
+ Free all memory associated with the array and return it to the
+ initial, empty state.

+sha1-array API
+==============
+
+The sha1-array API provides storage and manipulation of sets of SHA1
+identifiers. The emphasis is on storage and processing efficiency,
+making them suitable for large lists. Note that the ordering of items is
+not preserved over some operations.
+
+Data Structures
+---------------
+
+`struct sha1_array`::
+
+ A single array of SHA1 hashes. This should be initialized by
+ assignment from `SHA1_ARRAY_INIT`. The `sha1` member contains
+ the actual data. The `nr` member contains the number of items in
+ the set. The `alloc` and `sorted` members are used internally,
+ and should not be needed by API callers.
+
+Functions
+---------
+
+`sha1_array_append`::
+ Add an item to the set. The sha1 will be placed at the end of
+ the array (but note that some operations below may lose this
+ ordering).
+
+`sha1_array_sort`::
+ Sort the elements in the array.
+
+`sha1_array_lookup`::
+ Perform a binary search of the array for a specific sha1.
+ If found, returns the offset (in number of elements) of the
+ sha1. If not found, returns a negative integer. If the array is
+ not sorted, this function has the side effect of sorting it.
+
+`sha1_array_clear`::
+ Free all memory associated with the array and return it to the
+ initial, empty state.
+
+`sha1_array_for_each_unique`::
+ Efficiently iterate over each unique element of the list,
+ executing the callback function for each one. If the array is
+ not sorted, this function has the side effect of sorting it.
+
+Examples
+--------
+
+-----------------------------------------
+void print_callback(const unsigned char sha1[20],
+ void *data)
+{
+ printf("%s\n", sha1_to_hex(sha1));
