+GIT v1.6.3.3 Release Notes
+==========================
+
+Fixes since v1.6.3.2
+--------------------
+
+ * "git archive" running on Cygwin can get stuck in an infinite loop.
+
+ * "git daemon" did not correctly parse the initial line that carries
+ virtual host request information.
+
+ * "git diff --textconv" leaked memory badly when the textconv filter
+ errored out.
+
+ * The built-in regular expressions to pick function names to put on
+ hunk header lines for java and objc were very inefficiently written.
+
+ * in certain error situations git-fetch (and git-clone) on Windows didn't
+ detect connection abort and ended up waiting indefinitely.
+
+ * import-tars script (in contrib) did not import symbolic links correctly.
+
+ * http.c used CURLOPT_SSLKEY even on libcURL version 7.9.2, even though
+ it was only available starting 7.9.3.
+
+ * low-level filelevel merge driver used return value from strdup()
+ without checking if we ran out of memory.
+
+ * "git rebase -i" left stray closing parenthesis in its reflog message.
+
+ * "git remote show" did not show all the URLs associated with the named
+ remote, even though "git remote -v" did. Made them consistent by
+ making the former show all URLs.
+
+ * "whitespace" attribute that is set was meant to detect all errors known
+ to git, but it told git to ignore trailing carriage-returns.
+
+Includes other documentation fixes.
