+Git v2.0.1 Release Notes
+ * We used to unconditionally disable the pager in the pager process
+ we spawn to feed out output, but that prevented people who want to
+ run "less" within "less" from doing so.
+ * Tools that read diagnostic output in our standard error stream do
+ not want to see terminal control sequence (e.g. erase-to-eol).
+ Detect them by checking if the standard error stream is connected
+ to a tty.
+ * Reworded the error message given upon a failure to open an existing
+ loose object file due to e.g. permission issues; it was reported as
+ the object being corrupt, but that is not quite true.
+ * "git log -2master" is a common typo that shows two commits starting
+ from whichever random branch that is not 'master' that happens to
+ be checked out currently.
+ * The "%<(10,trunc)%s" pretty format specifier in the log family of
+ commands is used to truncate the string to a given length (e.g. 10
+ in the example) with padding to column-align the output, but did
+ not take into account that number of bytes and number of display
+ columns are different.
+ * The "mailmap.file" configuration option did not support the tilde
+ expansion (i.e. ~user/path and ~/path).
+ * The completion scripts (in contrib/) did not know about quite a few
+ options that are common between "git merge" and "git pull", and a
+ couple of options unique to "git merge".
+ * "--ignore-space-change" option of "git apply" ignored the spaces
+ at the beginning of line too aggressively, which is inconsistent
+ with the option of the same name "diff" and "git diff" have.
+ * "git blame" miscounted number of columns needed to show localized
+ timestamps, resulting in jaggy left-side-edge of the source code
+ lines in its output.
+ * "git blame" assigned the blame to the copy in the working-tree if
+ the repository is set to core.autocrlf=input and the file used CRLF
+ line endings.
+ * "git commit --allow-empty-message -C $commit" did not work when the
+ commit did not have any log message.
+ * "git diff --find-copies-harder" sometimes pretended as if the mode
+ bits have changed for paths that are marked with assume-unchanged
+ bit.
+ * "git format-patch" did not enforce the rule that the "--follow"
+ option from the log/diff family of commands must be used with
+ exactly one pathspec.
+ * "git gc --auto" was recently changed to run in the background to
+ give control back early to the end-user sitting in front of the
+ terminal, but it forgot that housekeeping involving reflogs should
+ be done without other processes competing for accesses to the refs.
+ * "git grep -O" to show the lines that hit in the pager did not work
+ well with case insensitive search. We now spawn "less" with its
+ "-I" option when it is used as the pager (which is the default).
+ * We used to disable threaded "git index-pack" on platforms without
+ thread-safe pread(); use a different workaround for such
+ platforms to allow threaded "git index-pack".
+ * The error reporting from "git index-pack" has been improved to
+ distinguish missing objects from type errors.
+ * "git mailinfo" used to read beyond the end of header string while
+ parsing an incoming e-mail message to extract the patch.
+ * On a case insensitive filesystem, merge-recursive incorrectly
+ deleted the file that is to be renamed to a name that is the same
+ except for case differences.
+ * "git pack-objects" unnecessarily copied the previous contents when
+ extending the hashtable, even though it will populate the table
+ from scratch anyway.
+ * "git rerere forget" did not work well when merge.conflictstyle
+ was set to a non-default value.
+ * "git remote rm" and "git remote prune" can involve removing many
+ refs at once, which is not a very efficient thing to do when very
+ many refs exist in the packed-refs file.
+ * "git log --exclude=<glob> --all | git shortlog" worked as expected,
+ but "git shortlog --exclude=<glob> --all", which is supposed to be
+ identical to the above pipeline, was not accepted at the command
+ line argument parser level.
+ * The autostash mode of "git rebase -i" did not restore the dirty
+ working tree state if the user aborted the interactive rebase by
+ emptying the insn sheet.
+ * "git show -s" (i.e. show log message only) used to incorrectly emit
+ an extra blank line after a merge commit.
+ * "git status", even though it is a read-only operation, tries to
+ update the index with refreshed lstat(2) info to optimize future
+ accesses to the working tree opportunistically, but this could
+ race with a "read-write" operation that modify the index while it
+ is running. Detect such a race and avoid overwriting the index.
+ * "git status" (and "git commit") behaved as if changes in a modified
+ submodule are not there if submodule.*.ignore configuration is set,
+ which was misleading. The configuration is only to unclutter diff
+ output during the course of development, and should not to hide
+ changes in the "status" output to cause the users forget to commit
+ them.
+ * The mode to run tests with HTTP server tests disabled was broken.
